    droidmaxx You may recall that the Motorola Droid MAXX smartphone began to receive the Android 4.4 KitKat operating system earlier this year.

    My battery life is diminishing. I used to be able to come home from work after minimal use during the day with about 90% battery; today I'm down to 66% on an average day.

    I have tried reboots and killing some apps.

    All I did today was sone texting (maybe 6 texts) and the battery usage app shows texting as my primary power consumet today.

    Something isn't right.

    While I get that - the same thing is happening to me - is it really a problem that you end a day with over 60% battery life left?

    OK I'm at 90% now after work; that's after a powered-down overnight recharge via plugin charger (instead of my wireless charger that I use all the time).

    So it definitely helped either improve the actual charge or the calibration of the meter.

    I'm not noticing any unusual battery drain, but I do notice the on battery stat isn't always accurate. For example yesterday it said my time on battery was 12hrs 32 minutes. It somehow lost 3 hours. It should've been 15 hrs and 32 minutes. This is the second time I've noticed this issue.

    My battery lasts a normal amount of time. 2 or 3 days. 6-9 hrs screen on time. but I have this weird high usage by proximity sensor in the phone application according to better battery stats.

    i thought it was due to an xposed framework module that I had set. flip to dismiss call or flip to mute. but it still happens.

    Mine has been doing much better since I killed some apps that did a lot of background updating. Also a couple of weeks ago I let the battery drain to about 20%, powered down, and did an overnight plugged-in charge ( normally only use my wireless charger).

    Also, deleting sms (text) messages helps.

    My phone is stuck on the incomplete X-Mas leak of Jelly Bean that came out a long time ago, lol.

    In your opinion, should I go through the hassle of fixing it and getting Kit Kat?
