    Droid RAZR Maxx

    So for testing purposes I started with a full charge (100%) this morning and browsed away and kept browsing until my battery now shows 30%. That's 70% gone in 3 hours.

    No movies, no music, just browsing and reading.

    It kinda irritates me that these phones are portrayed as running endlessly when in fact there are so many factors that can change things rather quickly. Like not living under a tower with perfect signal strength. The further away from the tower the harder the phone works and the quicker the drain on the battery.

    Now mind you its better than a phone with a much smaller battery. I don't know how anyone can tolerate a lesser powered phone than the maxx. It must be very frustrating.

    Oh yes, here's how to check your signal strength.

    Settings, About phone, Status, Network type and strength.
