    I picked up my Bionic on launch day. Yesterday with moderate usage it made it from about 8:00AM until around 1:00PM, at which point it was in the yellow. I'm rather disappointed.

    I think you would get much better battery life if you turned off 4G signal when you can't get it

    Same experience here. 28 percent just from leaving the bluetooth radio on

    TIP: Skype is a battery hog. If you're not using it, turn it off!
    I discovered this the hard way :(

    Was that with Bluetooth turned on? Seems to be a lot of talk about the BT radio killing the battery even if it isn't connected.

    I do not have 4G anywhere close so I have it turned off in settings. When I check battery stats cell standby is always the top user of battery. Even with hours of display use.
    Is the display that much more battery friendly or is the radio just a hog?

    Does anyone besides me seem to have their display as the highest battery user? Also, what apps are you guys using for screenshots? I'm rooted but all of screenshots I try to take come out blurry and messed up for some reason.

    No.
    even my first day when I had the screen/display on for 4.5 hours, "Cell Standby" was the highest battery user. No idea why, it was never the case with my DX.

    CLEARLY there are problems with the battery life on this device. I'm sorry but what is the point on having a "super smart phone" that you have to turn off 4G and something as simple as Bluetooth?? (Every time I get in and out of my car I have to remember this?) Getting 4-5 hours of battery life with these items on is ridiculous and Motorola needs to work through this in software improvements STAT. We have been waiting through all the BS for this phone for a year so the "improvements" would result in a great phone. This isn't suppose to be another Thunderbolt!

    MOTOROLA GET YOUR S*** together. There I said it.

    I think Motorola has some software updates to make... After removing the phone from the charger overnight, it is very warm to the touch - reporting 107 degrees sitting idle in the home dock, with the screen turned off.

    I thought it was a battery problem, so I tried my 2nd battery. I removed from the standard desktop dock at 9am after overnight charging, did some quick email checks, and by 12noon, it was down to 30% with hardly any usage.

    With the Extended 2700mh battery it's not so bad. Only have gotten down to 70% so far after a full charge since 7 am when i woke up. I would heavily suggest investing in it as well guys
