    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.
    I was using smart actions to turn off background data and cell data when it was asleep and not charging. Worked perfectly on GB. Had to stop doing it on ics though because I noticed my data was not reactivating every time. Sure enough that wonderful new ics feature called Data limit would magically turn itself on and set a limit well under my unlimited usage. What a freaking pain in my a** ics has become.

    First charge on the new Maxx and I am impressed.

    Screen Time 5 hrs and 26 min. Thought it would be more since I just got it and have played with it a lot.

    Talk about inconsistent. Didn't change much as far as usage goes. Not sure how I'm getting less then 12 hours when I got over the 30 the past few days.

    ive noticed if i am not getting a good lock on GPS (cloudy, indoors, underground) my weather app will drain more battery. im doing nothing different, i just happen to be in a spot out of GPS satellites range. but my battery drain went from 80mA to 210mA. if a weather app doesn't get a good lock it will retry at a set interval until its gets a lock. some of those settings are not even visible to the end user.

    being that 3G is only a backup when 4G is not available, i wouldn't risk it. that and after a reboot/reset it would revert back to same old stock.

    yea it does it only takes a few seconds to put it back to 3g only so i dont mind that i guess i'll leave it til they have an update that fixes these radios so i can have my 4g back

    Ok. Lately my battery hasn't been consistent. I'm a semi heavy user, internet, phone calls, streaming music, text. This weekend I was getting over 30 hours on a charge now it's anywhere between 10 - 12. Everything is stock. No real change as far as reception goes ( in Chicago area so strong 4G) was thinking about rooting. Would that help battery life? Besides what Braden thinks "porn" is not causing the issue!

    One of the benefits of rooting is having control over your cpu. You can set it up so that 1 of your cores will turn off when your screen is off and will fire back up when your screen comes on.
