    I am seeing no matter how much I baby or push the maxx when the battery is almost out I end up with 6-7hrs of display.

    No matter what I set gps, data, wifi, etc... I can go 20hrs or just 12hrs the maxx still ends up with 6-7hrs. (Auto brightness )

    Anyone else notice this?

    I don't have the Maxx so my advice will be limited. But if you haven't already done so, there's a lot of folks who found Juice Defender (Ultimate recommended) to be helpful with battery life. There's a thread on it here.

    by all means I am happy with anything over 10hrs. This 16-26hrs is freaking insane..
    I have just noticed the 6-7hrs of actual screen on time, regardless of how long the charge is for. Kinda makes me wonder how long this thing would last just laying there..
    ;(

    I get about 16-19 hours on the Maxx daily so you should be getting more than 6-7 hours I would think.

    Do you mean that your display is on 6-7 hours? What do you do so you can leave your display on so many hours?
    The other weekend I had over 24 hours, about 7-8 hours very low usage, while screen time was a bit less than 4 hours.

    Yes 6-7 hrs.. of display.
    Pretty much 2 hrs streaming Netflix each day. Then various other useage from being on here, fb, browsing the market, etc...
    I even turn display off manually rather than screen time out.

    Just seems no matter what my overall usage is, once display gets around 6 hrs my battery % is pretty close to 10%.

    What display hrs are y'all seeing? Better/worse

    If you have the display on that long I would say your battery usage is about right.

    I just put my maxx on the charger after 2 days, 9 hours and 54 minutes at 20% power left. My largest usage was phone calls at around 32% of battery usage (about 2 hours). The next big usage was the android system. Way down the list at 7% of battery usage was screen time ( 2 hour 35 minutes of screen time) . I have my screen set to 30% power level. No doubt with minimum usage this BEAST will go for days!

    I would agree with that. Streaming 4G? 6-7 hours screen on Auto-Brightness?

    You should be more than happy IMHO.

    I'm at about 3 hours screen on with no streaming on a D3 at 30% left.

    WOW the battery life of this phone is amazing! I can't wait to see what I get. I keep my screen at the lowest setting(can't stand it bright). I was thinking 6-7hrs of screen time would take your battery down pretty fast. Can't wait to get my phone tomorrow and see what I get!

    I swear by Juice Defender Ultimate. Smart Actions are a joke. Their (Motorola's) idea of disabling data is either with the display off or motion detection. With motion detection as long as the phone sees movement the data stays on. If you try and just use the screen off feature then data will shut off when trying to use internet radio with the display off. Or everytime I turn the screen on to check my calls, texts, etc data turns on. Even if all I'm doing is checking the time. JD has settings to white list apps and allow them to run with the display off. But when those apps are not running it turns the data off and keeps it off til screen is unlocked. So time can be checked. Its saved my battery. Before I too was getting 6 hrs maybe from the phone. Now ... well look for yourself.

    13hrs and that's with JD? Not very impressive. I have tasker if need be (just haven't decided it was needed)

    Hope no one thinks I am not the least bit happy with this battery, that's far from the truth.

    Seriously, what are you looking for? The gas tank in my car is empty after I drive it 350 miles, every time! It doesn't matter if I drive 350 miles in 6 hours or 2 weeks, it's still empty after 350 miles.

    I have the RAZR and can drain the battery to 50% by playing angry birds for 2 hrs staight...what does this mean? Angry birds uses lots of energy...but I still play...I just charge my phone more...battery life is all in how you use the phone. I met a person with a RAZR and he goes 2 days without charging. I asked how he used the phone...he just makes calls and txt...light usage. I didn't use my phone all day...to busy working ...got home 10 hrs later...90% battery left. You can kill you battery playing angry birds for 4 hrs...maxx might last 6...the game is demanding keeping screen lit constantly. Could I get better battery life? Yes I could turn down brightness, etc...but I like the screen bright. Want your phone to last days between charges ...just use it as a phone...no games...browsing ...etc...I like using mine to do whatever I want anytime ...thus I have to charge it more...juice defender sounds nice but my angry bird marathons will still kill my battery ...I might check it out though.

    I totally agree, rdgxray. I can really drain my battery with high screen on time, gps usage or various other things.

    Like you, I don't really care too much. I am usually around a charger if I need one.

    This is a great phone whether it goes all day without a charge or not. :)
