    So I called verizon she has a RAZR and experienced same battery dying quickly issue after ics and said a update is in the works since problem was reported to Google and vzw and Motorola. Is this just. 215? Cause that did not help me. Should I try to get the galaxy s3 or? If there really is a update. Otw I will wait.

    I would not expect better battery life out of the S3 since it has a smaller battery and a bigger screen.

    Have you tried downloading something like Bad A$$ Battery monitor to see what is using up all of your battery?

    Standard Razr in question here I think. FYI- I am getting 20 hours out of the SG3 on average and I am a moderate/heavy user. 10 days left before my cycle restarts and am at 3.125 GB.

    I wouldn't take that trade, but that's up to you. I'd push them to give me a maxx. It would either be maxx or nothing in my opinion.

    i am on a maxx, they cahnged my razr to a razr maxx. I was thinking, maybe sell my maxx out right with otterbox case, and then buy a used s3 or even a bionic with extended battery, something that gets 5+ hrs of use

    GNex isn't really a downgrade, per se. At least you gain an unlockable bootloader (if that is your thing). If modding is not of interest, i'd push for the Maxx.

    Yeah I noticed that after I posted it, I forget not everyone has the Maxx. Moot point I guess since they are only offering him the Gnex, I thought you jumped the S3 ship?

    If you are on the Maxx now then we should figure out what is causing your bad battery life, you are not going to find a phone out right now that can beat the Maxx in those terms.

    Do you have it set to 4G all the time or do you use the TB App to change it to CDMA only? Try that battery monitor I suggested or even what does your stock battery meter say is using all your battery now? Screen should be the top contented for battery consumption, if something is using more than the screen that might be your problem.

    I have been unplugged for 3h 27m 47s and I am still a 90% left, and that is after a 20 minute phone call, corporate email syncing, two Gmail accounts syncing, some text messaging, Draw Something, and Tweetcaster updating.

    You have something draining your battery at an alarming rate, I would be curious to see what it is with a better battery monitor.

    Sydman is right. There is an underlying issue here. I have the regular Razr (I know shameful), I'm averaging 11-14 hours a day depending on use right now. I'm rooted, running .215. Can you at least put up a screen shot of what is currently using the battery?

    update: I should add that I mostly leave 4g on.
