    Had my Maxx for a couple months now, and have really not had any complaints..until recently. Lately, I get to 50% battery by the end of the day. Last night, my phone was off the charger at 7am and by noon was already down to 80%. The problem is that I never used my phone in that time period. I switched back to a darker background and even on 3g battery life is similar. I'm wondering if maybe an app is causing this? I did the meter training a month ago, and was previously at 70% after 12 hours

    It could be a signal quality issue.. I did notice what you said about 3g... but I've noticed that 3g in my area isn't as strong as it once was.

    Also.. perhaps the battery is losing a little of its ability to hold a charge??

    Or perhaps you have a cell going bad. These are just possibilities...

    I've noticed my battery life has faltered on both of my maxx's too.
