    very poor battery life on ics and jelly bean

    I've tried numerous battery re-calibrations on my droid razr. Battery life was pretty decent on gingerbread then when my phone was updated to ics it suffered. Now that i upgraded to jelly bean it still sucks. If i unplug the phone from the charger at 6am by 5 pm it was just about dead and that's with very little use. When my area went to 4g now i'm lucky if i make it till 12 noon and i hardly use the phone. I thought it was due to 4g so i disabled that now the phone will last to about 1 1:30 again with very lite use. When i unplug the phone from the charger it shows 100% charge. When i arrive at work an hour later i'm already down to 91% and i didn't even use the phone. When i check what is using the battery the android os is the culprit at over 60%. The phone is 14 months old. Is it possible the battery is just starting to go?

    Have you performed a Factory Data Reset? Sounds like you may need to do that.

    I had the same problem and ended up going back to ICS. 215 and that is where my OG RAZR is staying.

    Sorry I should have said that I didn't try the official update. I tried all the JB ROMS that are out and found that none of them gave me good battery life. Maybe if I had the maxx it would be better but with my original RAZR the JB ROMS were horrible for battery life.

    My maxx has been phenomenal on battery since jelly bean. Got 2.5 days and was at 30% when I put it on the charger. On ics I would be at the same place by 6 pm.

    I'm on JB and have done an FDR on my maxx, but I only get around 8-10 hours tops before I hit 30-40%. I use my phone but not constantly, and I end the processes constantly after use. Do you guys with incredible battery life even use your phones lol?

    I haven;t tried a factory data reset cause cause i didn't want to go thru the whole process of reloading all my apps and info again. When i upgraded to jelly bean i never did the wipe cache part. Could that have effected the upgrade and battery use?

    I am also suddenly seeing severe battery drain on my Razr and its driving me crazy! I can't even make it thru a 12 hr shift at work and that is with a few times hitting the power button to check the time (its my watch at times) and sending about 5 texts back and forth. That is crazy! Still on ICS and not rooted. So I've been trying to figure this out and the only big change is switching from imo to IM+ as my im app. That switches to push after 1 min of not using the app and doesn't really make much of a dent in the list of things using the battery. What I have noticed, however, is that every time my phone drops and regains 4G, it turns the screen on, even tho I'm on my Wi-Fi . I'm close to the edge of 4G at my house, so even while typing this it prob happened 2-3 times and I currently have only 2 bars. I'm sitting 6 ft from my router and nothing else is running on the Wi-Fi right now, so this screenshot makes no sense either. Help?!?

    Media and Android OS are now battery hogs

    I am experiencing much worse battery life after the Jelly Bean update as well. My two biggest culprits are Media and Android OS, both using much larger amounts of power than the screen, which was the biggest user before the update. I tried force stopping the media app and clearing cache, but that only helped for a day. Any ideas of what Media is and why its using so much power now?

    I suggest to anyone experiencing worse performance after the update to do a factory reset. It worked wonders for the HD after the JB update.

    My Maxx would have made it an estimated 12 hours yesterday, and the ONLY thing I did all day on it were use the Facebook app (and force close upon exit) and use the browser (again, force close upon exit). I did a factory reset and it hasn't really made a difference in the battery life, although it straightened out the phone issues I was having.
