    So upon activating the new maxx, its painfully obvious that my other maxx had battery issues. I charged this phone to 100% before activation, and the old maxx was at 100% before the switch.

    The new maxx should discharge quicker since its new, first charge. But the old one is going down faster!!! I do remember though, that sometimes the phone lasts a while on the first few charged, then starts to go down quickly.

    I shall keep close tabs on both.

    Actually, these new batteries do not require conditioning.

    You need to have all the same apps and setup before you can accurately compare ...

    I'm a step ahead of you. Everything is exactly the same. From settings to wall papers, the number of songs stored on the SD, the class of the SD, brightness level, cases are the same.... I've got it down to the smallest detail that I can manipulate.

    The few differences are the email accounts, but they both are setup to a gmail I own, both with the same spam filter, and I'm alternating posts on this very forum with them.

    Strike that. Too much of a pita to keep signing in and out. I'll keep things as even as I can.

    This is true. A new LIPO battery will hold more capacity than an old one and will therefore take longer to deplete given the same current draw.

    The difference is only 2 months. Think it'll make that much difference?

    I don't think the difference would be all that significant. Idk though. We'll see. I think its gonna wind up pretty even in the next week, I shall see.

    So the new maxx is far better for battery life. Better than the old one ever was. So I called Motorola and talked to a person whom was almost paying attention... they're sending out a label as they call it, to ship that phone back to them. This should be interesting. I'm checking again after a reboot of the old phone, since it was having glitches... giving it another opportunity.

    I would installed watchdog enable process monitoring on both I bet you might had a few processes running higher on the old version.

    So an anomaly has reared its head. The first razr maxx froze again, and just kept going in circles of reboots. It sorted itself out and the battery life has improved. Idk though. This makes twice that its done the circles of revolts. See the " something smells" post lmao. Thoughts? It's stock by the way.

    What kinda time you looking at, mainly interested in screen on as that seems to be a major factor & total time of course.

    I'd love to get 6 hours of talk time let alone 21 hours! I think that the system goofs it processes up and it has to reconfigure them. I had phenomenal life first few weeks but now not so much.

    Well it took me until 12:45 to get the older maxx factory reset, and reloaded with all of the apps, and to.get em both charged back to 100%. Since then I'm at about 3 hours of screen time, and showing 70% on the new and old. I wish I could post some screen shots, Facebook is as usual, right behind the screen, followed by the browser and the OS.

    Im not rooted, on these phones. Every screenshot I've tried hasn't worked except one, and the trial expired in I think it was 15 mins. I don't care to buy it with ics having that ability stock. I took pics of the screens, but this forum keeps telling me that they are missing security tokens when I try to post them. That's why my app avatar is still a stock avatar.

    I think that you're right though. They seem to be awesome for a while and then they flop. But the first one seems to be holding its own.

    One thing I've noticed with the first maxx, at times on the battery info, it will show a 10% drop for a moment and then show it as climbing right back up, when its not on charge.
