    Does foxfi work? Does it do data and voice on both 4g and 3g?

    I am a heavy user when I travel and was leaning toward the maxx hd, which foxfi and voice / data work. But the battery on this might be livable if those both work.

    Seems like wifi/no data would be best to demonstrate battery as 4g is not constant.

    Yeah but 4g is there and used. I hate CNET's battery tests because they just run a movie. Well most of my usage is on 4g.

    What? No that's no where near the best way to test battery cause that doesn't offer real world use. 90% of the people out there are connected to the network all day everyday either 3G or 4G.

    I agree with this. Efficiency in the radios and how the phone's software handles data hand offs is far more important than just hardware drain.

    You can easily turn down your brightness or change gps on or off. You can't easily optimize the radio drivers.

    Make it easy with the battery test.
    Leave mobile data /4G on,
    Screen at 100%
    Background data and all that sync crap on.
    What's the point of having a pocket computer if all this stuff is not working.
    Screw all that turning stuff off nonsense.
    I like my screen blazing like the sun. 4G Puling speeds like lighting and most of all, Internet ready to use at the drop of a hat.

    Aright, so ive left the brightness on max, since i like to view this beautiful screen at its best, and with watching hd videos on youtube for half hour on 4g service, and using the phone all day surfing web texting, and on line with customer service for about 40 minutes, id say its doing well battery wise. By 2 am at night or morning however youd like to look at it, its at 20% charge now. Oh and also after surfing the web or watching the videos on youtube, the phone doesnt heat up like how all other phones i have just start heating up like crazy. Toward the 20 min mark it got a bit warm but nothing to notice at all. I guess the quad core actually works like how they said about the low voltage or whatever to use less power and less heat. So thats a plus. Again the LCD is beautiful, i love it. Phone runs great, no problems thus far. As far as data and voice on 4g, i dont know if voice is on 4g on this phone, but when im on the phone i am able to use the internet just fine.

    Can't wait for this to hit the stores. Hoping the battery life is as good as it sounds. Keep the info coming, thanks!

    Yes but when sitting on a desk at an angle can you see the one on the front? I can't see my tbolt unless I am looking right at it or its dark.
