    I would like some input from the community as to how one uses Smart Actions. I would like to more efficiently use my phone and would love to see what ideas other DROID RAZR/DROID RAZR MAXX users have thought of.

    I tried, but I'm not impressed with smart actions. I think the rules are to rigid for the average user, and I saw no real benefit, battery or otherwise for using

    There's afew threads covering smart action uses already.


    I mainly use it to turn brightness down and change wallpapers when connected to various Wi-Fi locations. Also I disable background data when no movement is detected.

    When I hook headphones up (my car dock) at night time hours it brings the brightness way down and during the day way up...

    When I plug in headphones it turns on Pandora.

    Display off with no movement turns off sync and data.

    I use ringer off except for "VIP" phone calls 11:00pm-5:00am.

    Battery extender.

    Turn GPS, background data, brightness all the way down, etc. when below 20%.

    For work I disable almost everything except cell data. I also set the ringer to vibrate with a few select contacts for VIP. I also use it for low battery warnings, so if I run my battery down to 10% it turns my data and everything off to conserve itself.

    I only have mine set to turn data off and wifi on when I'm home. I get almost 3 days of battery life every time with it.
