    Op get the phone that works for you. But I must admit I get decent battery life. Underclocking with setcpu along with some other things really helped me along with the rom I am running. When my phone is in my pocket or when I am texting I turn mobile data off.

    My tweaks:

    Use setcpu to set screen off to 700/350

    Go into settings, data use, check set limit. Find apps like market, g+, twitter, and other social apps. click and check "restrict background data".

    go into settings, wireless & networks and uncheck nfc.

    Make sure wifi, bluetooth, gps are unchecked when not in use on your power control widget.

    I personally also uncheck auto sync on my power control widget.

    Also when I use my phone as an ipod/mp3 player I turn off turn off auto sync and mobile data.

    That has helped me. I will go 12 hours and at least have 30% battery life left with heavier use, 75 % left with light usage.

    Seidio has a 3800 coming out but it won't support nfc. What we really need is a new battery tech such as silver-zinc. Same size 50% more power. I'd pay 100 bucks for a stock size extended life battery.

    Haven't heard of such a battery yet, but looking forward to this type of technology. I'm guessing it's still being researched or it's too expensive for consumers right now?

    Also, I get great battery life with my Nexus, though we are all different types of users. Hope you enjoy the Razr Maxx when it comes out

    How do you have it act as your bedside clock?

    The only way I know is to tap the time and then tap it again to make it darker.

    But I'm worried about burning in the screen.

    Motorola :

    Release the Bionic ...

    6 weeks later release the RAZR....

    Just after the holiday push to sell RAZR's release the RAZR MAXX.

    What's next? The RAZR Super Max?

    My local store sales say they never sell any Bionics anymore - they steer everyone to the RAZR.

    Of course now they won't talk about the MAXX because people are still buying the RAZR. I was in there at the front desk chatting - didn't realize someone was buying a RAZR and the guy said the MAXX would be $350..

    I said $299, announced.

    Luckily the customer was oblivious.

    Long press on the time and it goes even darker.

    I see it turns the clock blue.

    No one is afraid of burning the screen in?

    Also how do you stand it up?
