    Welcome to Droid Forums. Sorry to say but many of these 4g devices have pretty lack luster battery life. I would suggest heading over to our Razr section and looking around for some possible battery saving tips.

    Definitely check out the Razr section but it sounds like something is constantly running in the background to drain the battery...or it could be an issue with the phone - the Razr does have a shorter battery life than the Maxx but you should get more than 4 hours with minimal use...

    Link to our Razr Subsection... Droid RAZR Forum
