    That's about what I get as well (1d 8h w 30%) when my MAXX is connected to wifi both at home and at work w similar usage as hazelgreen. I don't care for maximizing the battery for 4 or 5 days with things turned off, brightness dimmed, etc.

    Just being able to go thru a day w normal usage without having to plug in during the middle of the day is why I bought the MAXX.

    New Maxx owner here.

    Yesterday was my first day with my phone with full charge. After 17hrs 58min I still had 28% battery. That's PLENTY good enough for me. All my background sync was on. 4 email addresses, multiple texts, FaceBook, 45 min of YouTube, streaming music, etc. I was impressed that the OS and screen were about the same useage numbers. Usually, the screen was 3 times more than anything else on my Rezound. I keep my brightness on auto and I was a mixture of WiFi and 4G all day.

    And it's going to get better after 3-5 full charge cycles (from "empty" - 10-15%).

    I wish everyone would start listing their 'Screen On' or 'Display' times along with the total time since the phone came off the charger.

    I can get more than 1 Day, also, if I don't use the dang thing!

    3 hours 48 minutes screen on
    Auto brightness
    No 4g in my area 3g only
    Smart actions kill data when screen off

    Oops sorry forgot battery at 51% left.

    And there is the answer to all the unrest in this thread.

    This is just my opinion, but personally I could care less if Moe gets 70 hours per charge Larry gets 45 and poor old curly only gets 30.

    You are never going to get a thread on here to define average battery life because average use is to many different things.

    There are way to many variables on battery use to beat yourself up if you only got 24 hours before charging. 3G, 4G or wifi? How are your smart actions set up? How many hours was you screen on, did you stream music, how many phone calls did you make? Do you use live wallpaper or a solid black background, do you auto sync? Add in another 100 im not including or forgetting and you can see the madness and total randomness average involves.

    I had a Nexus before this phone and was charging or switching batteries 3 and 4 times a day, so you will have to forgive me for finding humor in a thread where people are pounding the hell out of their phone all day and ONLY getting 24 or 32 hours per charge.

    No other phone comes close to what this delivers in battery life, some people would kill for 24 hours, be happy with the run time you get for how you use the phone, not how Moe, Larry and Curly use it.

    Does using wifi drain the battery less than using 4G?

    Do you have to turn off the 3g and 4g or does that take care of itself just by turning on wifi?

    I had a smart action setup so when wifi was enabled that data would be disabled. Only downside is to send or receive MMS u need the data on. Wifi is much better. 3g only I could get around 2.5 hrs on screen wifi I could get about 4-4.5 hrs . 4g was about 1.5 hrs that's just my personal experience though

    Update - SmartActions:

    I had been using SmartActions to turn off Background Sync at night. I had Wifi turned on 24/7, but found out from Motorola that turning off background sync will not stop emails if Wifi is turned on.

    Suggestion: Turn off Background Sync, Wifi, disable Cellular data, and Silent Ringtone to get a good night's sleep.

    the bigger display, faster 4g (compared to 3g), and animations ICS brings is going to eat into a battery... no matter the size.

    I am new to the Razr Maxx, and Android for that matter, and am having a battery/charging problem that I can't figure out. I have had the phone about 3 weeks and have charged it many times. I always charge it overnight while I am sleeping. Twice i have woke up and the battery was at 50% although it was on the charger all night. I can't figure out why it does this. Is there an internal setting anywhere that would stop the charging at 50% or is there a chance the battery is discharging after being on the charger for an extended period of time. Any help is appreciated.

    make sure you are using the charger that came with your Razr, also try a different outlet.

    On my Droid Razr Maxx - xt912 - upgraded to ICS 4.0.4 from GB 2.3.2 (never had to reset the phone once since ICS upgrade)

    Battery Life since applying many of these fine suggestions is somewhere between 36 to 48 hours between recharges... but....

    Smart Actions is a fine tool and better than 3rd party apps to reduce background power consumption. Learn how to use it 'cause it's worth it.

    Most of the activity on my phone is for seeing/reading email, answering or making phone calls (3 to 7 per day; 30 - 120 minutes), using / referring to my calendar, or within email, going to a website, opening attachments or two to see the scoop on the info sent to me; occassionally listen to iheart radio for about an hour during the day for news, weather and talk show, or listen to my music ( 1 - 2 hours) onboard-via bluetooth headset...and that's about it... No Games or streaming videos, unless it's on a website (you tube) etc... This has been for about two weeks now and no downside issues I can note... 2d 1h 4m 53s on battery... Later Bye!
