    Not me. I've been off the charger for 34 hours and I have 38% battery left. Texting seems normal as well. Try a reboot (power off and then restart). What is using all of your battery? Do you have any apps that are sucking it dry? The most likely problem is a misbehaving app that keeps running or using data.

    Do a soft reset...hold down the volume down button and the power off button for about 10 seconds. The phone will then power off and reboot. If that doesn't help I recommend you do a Factory Reset...I know, its a PIA but it might be the only way to fix the problem.

    doing a soft reset made it all good for me but I would probably recommend checking the background apps and see whats happening behind close doors...

    I wish to clarify... The update MAY have SOME phones REPORTING low battery levels when in fact the battery ISN'T actually low. In other words, the meter is inaccurate and you really have nothing to fear. To be 100% sure, power the phone off, then plug into the wall adapter and allow it to charge to 100% with the power off. Then use it until it hits 15% (ignoring any level reporting until then), and once at 15% (low battery), power off again and charge again till 100%. This MAY fix this bug for you, but it may not. Either way, you'll get a real good idea of how long the battery can really last from 100% to 15% and this should help you to feel better about the level indicator until the "fix" comes.

    However, if you DO want to go back to the original stock .173, download http://www.droidforums.net/forum/droid-razr-hacks/198379-updated-droid-razr-utility-windows.html and follow instructions for option 1. Be SURE to backup whatever you have that you can't afford to lose, copy all pictures and videos to the external SD card, and you may want to download and install https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.riteshsahu.SMSBackupRestore&feature=search_result and also https://play.google.com/store/apps/...lLogBackupRestore&feature=more_from_developer, run them both and set the backup locations to the external SD card, then backup the SMS and Call logs too (if you're so inclined). This version MAY wipe the internal SD card.

    I do understand there's a "wipe" command in the .bat file, and that if you edit it out (or comment it out), it MAY not do this, but I haven't seen an actual successful report saying that edit was effective.
