    Hello,

    A few weeks ago I noticed that my battery was reading 100% for much longer than it should given how I was using my Droid 4. Suddenly, the battery dropped to 90%. Since then, I have seen the same behavior when charging or discharging; I simply can't get an intermediate value! To be fair, I do get 15% and 5%, but other than that I only read 10,20,30,40...100%.

    My Droid is rooted and is running 4.0.4.

    Has anyone seen this before or have any suggestions?

    Someone correct me if I'm wrong, but I believe stock Motoblur ICS only shows the battery in increments of 10.

    My suggestion would be to look for market apps, or consider flashing custom roms, which depending on the rom can give the battery in increments of 5 or 1's.

    Yes all motoblur shows in 10's but battery widget solo and battery reborn has Motorola hacks that show in 1% increments
