    I recently had my Galaxy Nexus stolen and needed a new phone. While I loved the ability to flash various ROMS, I flashed most of them, I was never entirely happy with the voice quality on calls. My reception was OK but no great.

    Enter the Maxx... Reception is awesome, 2-3 bars of 4g at work and home 3-5 most other places. GN had no 4g at home or work. Calls sound great again. I very impressed. Now lets talk about battery life. The GN with DT's Complx I would get about 15 hours with basic usage. I'm still at around 90% after 12 hours today. Played the the new phone alot today. This is on the first charge of the phone. Impressed big time.

    Would love to be able to easily flash ROMs again with just CWR, is this possible with the Maxx? Are there any ROMS that shine and are near perfect? (Complx V2 will be near perfection IMHO)

    Build quality seems better, not sure what is better, just feels better in my hand. Screen is pretty nice, GN has the better screen, but I could never claim to be a videophile.


    Just wanted to introduce myself to the crew here.

    Hello and Welcome :)

    Wish I could answer your questions on ROMs but I decided not to root my maxx.... just yet. I haven't seen the need to. Changed the launcher, hid the bloatware add FoxFi and I was good to go.

    I don't know if I will ever root.

    Enjoy your time here

    90% after 12 hours?! I'm at 30% after 8 hours, not impressed at all. All ive been doing is my settings, smart actions and downloading my favorite apps.

    If you're still at 90% after 12 hours, you didn't use your phone a lot. These things have good batteries but not quite that good.

    battery indicator

    circle battery

    those are two I can think of off the top of my head that have the 1% hack that work on the Maxx but I am sure there are others if you search this forum since this question has been asked before

    Battery Monitor Widget gives you a lot of detailed information beyond just the widget. Also gives you voltage and battery temperature in the notification area.

    Bada$$ Battery Monitor also gives you much more detailed information. Gives you battery temp and avg time left in the notification area

    Battery Circle gives you battery temp, battery voltage, and time since last charge in the notification area.

    Go Power Master (believe you also have to have go launcher installed) gives you a widget w battery info and many useful functions as well as smart actions you can apply to save battery.

    All display in 1% increments.

    And go figure, I have them all installed on my phone because I use different features of each.

    I'm still using "Battery Left", by Preinvent. He actually used to post here and respond to bugs, suggestions, etc.

    I will have to check that one out, as if I don't have enough, lol. I would like to have just one that gives me the info I want in the notification area. Bada$$ is close, would like them to add time since last charge and it would me be perfect although I would still keep battery monitor widget because the app gives very detailed information on battery use.

    Btw, Go power master does not give information in 1% increments but I like their smart action feature much better than the stock.
