1. You want that $100.00 in your pocket or an Amazon Fire TV don't you? Well here's the deal. With our new updated look we are in desperate need of an updated logo. The 'old' one has certainly served us well, but it's time. Find all the details here: bit.ly/1q0k6Wa

    So, as the positive reviews of the Maxx's "ridiculous" battery life roll in, I believe a legitimate concern should be addressed regarding its projected capacity as the battery degrades over time. Given that many of us will have this phone for 1-2 years, to what extent should we expect a significant decrease in our ability to use this phone freely as we near the end of the contract?

    With proper care, Li-ion batteries (and Li-ion polymer) have a lifespan of around 2-3 years or ~350 (full) cycles. I believe that "life" is considered expired when the battery reaches ~70% of its original capacity. Thus, with a 3,300 mAh battery, a basic number crunch would imply that at the end of a standard 2-year contrast, the Maxx's capacity would be only ~2,310 mAh. That is a serious drop, especially when phones with removable batteries have the option of switching packs to always maintain a large capacity. (g-nex extended + stock = ~3900 mAh, which can be replaced to prevent deterioration)

    Can any battery experts/mathematicians weigh in on what the Maxx's now-excellent battery life might look like 2 years down the road? Or does anyone have useful tips for prolonging the life of the non-removable battery?

    Many thanks. (for reference, read up here, or just google "lithium ion battery care": How to Prolong Lithium-based Batteries - Battery University or http://www.newark.com/pdfs/techarticles/tektronix/LIBMG.pdf)
