First time post in this forum and I'd thought I'd start by saying that the Razr Maxx is by far, the best phone I've owned to date. Let's step back a few years to when I had a LG ENVY and jumped ship to iPhone on AT&T. The iPhone, although great, wasn't life changing and in all reality, I hated the limits Apple placed on what could and couldn't be used. Then the Thunderbolt was released and since it was the first 4G LTE phone with Qualcomm's chip, I bought it on the first day. That was the biggest mistake that I've ever made and HTC is a bad word in my home and workplace. The battery life is and was the single biggest issue with that phone and I refused to buy an extended battery that made the phone such an eyesore. Now the Maxx comes along and I've been in pure bliss since the day I bought it (3 weeks ago). Although it's a very durable phone, the first thing that I did was encase it in an Otter Box (Defender) as I want the phone to remain in pristine condition. And once I enabled smart actions and made a few other tweaks, I consistently get 24 hrs per charge; and that's not even down to 20%. My goal with a few more tweaks to the apps that I use and how I use it, is to get 48 hours from a single charge.
