    That's par for the course with modern 4G smartphones.

    Thanks johnriii, for starting this thread. I've been researching for a little over a month now, jumping back and forth between the M or Maxx HD. Originally, it was the iPhone 4s and 5, as well. Sounds like the M would satisfy my needs and wants. The Maxx HD would be more of a ooh ahh for me (mostly for the battery). Based on professional and user reviews, and threads like these, most users are getting 12 to 24 hours plus usage. And for the most part, getting a full-day usage (from wake up to sack time). Reading this post and threads have sealed the deal with me getting the M. Thanks.

    I was able to disable a lot of bloatware to help the battery life but what real helped was disabling Verizon's backup. When I took out that back up I saw my phone's battery start to last longer then it did before, now I might be getting something more like 3 days or even into the 4th day. I also sat up the smart actions app that Motorola put in so that when a registered WiFi is in range the data service is turned off and my phone puts WiFi into what I guess to be a low power type thing.

    I have been surfing Google and found that rumor is that Verizon might be putting out JB 4.2 which at least for the nexus, helps lower the power usage of the device. It would be great if Verizon just went straight to the newest which by then will be 4.3 or so, of course Verizon can't seem to get off their butts to put us the paying costumers first, ever.

    since I started this thread, I got "upgraded" from the Tbolt to the Rezound. i must say that the rezound is much better on battery life than the tbolt, but from what I'm reading the Rezound is still a battery guzzler. I'm still targeting this line of devices....

    Verizon's stuff like it's back up and the log in, sync service, my Verizon mobile. I also disabled the amazon and kindle stuff that was loaded on and some other stuff I wouldn't use like the NFL app. These things that Verizon put on the phone can't deleted only disabled so they are.

    Instead of listing here are screen shots.

    First full work day with this phone. I've had it since monday but hadn't done a full charge/use cycle.

    Charged it up last night: 100% battery when I unplugged it at 830am. From 900am to 4:30pm saw almost constant 4G usage with 2-4 bars of signal strength, mostly web browsing, a few HD youtube videos, 10 emails or so, probably 25 text messages. Screen brightness was close to minimum (inside, in a dark room). Battery went from 100% at 900am to 26% at 430pm. I plugged it in at 430pm to get a little charge back because I didn't know how much more I'd be using it after I got on the road.

    How did you disable the amazon apps?

    I just went to the apps menu-> all apps -> amazon app-> disable. If you don't have the disable option then try uninstalling the updates then disable

    First of all I want to say I just got my Razr M a little less than a week ago , this is my first smartphone and so far I love it.
    I tried setting up the location trigger and it didn't work well for me. I got the Powersaver app and that shut the wifi off but the location trigger didn't work well turning it back on; sometimes worked, sometimes not.
    Another potential problem I see with this is that the location area is much larger than the signal area of the router. At work the building is large enough that I loose the signal in certain areas. The powersaver shuts down the wifi but the smart action will see that I am still at the location and turn it back on. Not a big deal I guess but it seems that they would just be constantly in conflict.
    I may just use the powersaver to shut down then manually turn on when needed.
