Please understand this is my first smartphone..... Man, these things must really require a lot of power. I do appreciate the ability a smartphone has but, WOW!, these things really do require daily charging. I can't imagine how bad it must have been before the improved battery with the Razr Maxx! That said....I have had mine for about a week and I absolutely love the Razr Maxx. And, I probably haven't even scratched the surface of what can be done with it.
