    One of my biggest complaints with the ice leaks was when I went into the battery Info to see what apps were using how much battery. the screen was always at top with a percentage always greater then 40. It was like that with .84 so when I went to the newer ics leak I though this problem might have been fixed/ improved on. But no, same problem. So now with the new official ics release I thought they really would have fixed it since this is the official version that millions will be on. But as it turns out it is the exact same. I'm posting screen shots of the official ics. I addressed this problem on xda with the earlier versions of ics but I thought it was because it was the unofficial versions.

    Its just unbelievable how much battery is being used. I also thought that maybe ics is so battery efficient, but if that was true my battery life wouldn't be so bad. On gb i was getting about 12-17 hours. On ics I get about 11-15. 50% of the battery being used on screen that is on only about a fifth of the time the phone is on is crazy. Maybe this is a way to get the regular droid razr users to upgrade to the Maxx :p

    What is your brightness at? With is only being off battery 5 hours and screen on 1 of those to be down to 33% left seems like a lot.

    Man that is crazy, not sure what could be causing that. I have had my screen on time be up in the 3-4 hours and still be over 50% battery left.

    My screen also takes up most of my battery life but I still get pretty good battery life, I would say normal. How long do you use your RAZR at a time? View attachment 51677

    Are you on 4G, 3G, WiFI?

    The screen is always going to be the highest on battery consumption.

    I have seen MANY reports about the same issue :-(. One theme that seems common is the auto brightness is reportedly far too high in moderate light conditions, people are saying its automatically going to th max brightness inside under normal lighting....hope this and the 4g only bug is fixed prior to launch or normal razr users are going to be pissed :-(
