    Keep telling myself to buy/rent and give it a thrashing, if I don't like, razr maxx HD trade in time.

    There is absolutely no way the ipoop5 has better battery life than the maxx, it only has a 1440 mah battery.

    I could live with the lack of SD slot but having the non removable battery does kind of kill this phone in my eyes.

    I would rather the phone be 1-2mm thinner and have a non removable battery.
    I could live without a sd card if there was sufficient storage but 10 gigabytes just isn't enough room with todays high res photos and huge detailed games.I would be happy with 20 but prefer around 30 gigs

    I was just about to call BS because there's simply no way. Even with browsing only, even with optimized browsing, I still don't buy it.

    I can sit my MAXX HD on Mobile Hotspot with my Nexus 7 constantly browsing for over 12 hours and still have battery left. I can game on the MAXX HD for at least 10. There's simply no way it's getting 9 hours browsing.

    They claim 16 hours of video playback and I don't see that happening either. On razr maxx which I have.

    I didn't conduct the test though.

    One thing about these tests is they do not mimic real world. So one test says the DNA gets 4.5 hours of on screen time. But who unplugs thier phone then pounds it for 4.5 hours? They need to do a better job of capturing what happens in a day. So be on the web for a half hour, then used for an hour, then a half hour call, etc. That way we can take into account the use of 4g on standby as well.

    Either way, I went with the Maxx hd because the battery.

    I still feel that 1080p display will drain that battery to no end. Decent life on stock not so convinced. No expandable SD storage no go for me.

    One site did something like this.....they got about 3.5 to 4 hours on screen time. Total battery life was 27 hours tho. Even tho the on screen time is 4 hours, it can take into account things like being on a call. Most of the time being on call the screen is off. Listening to music the screen can be off. And just the stand by time between uses the screen will be off.

    The battery does drain extremely quickly when using the phone, you can almost watch the battery meter draining. I went 6 hours today off the charger before it hit 30%...

    That's unacceptable, what good is a dead phone?
