    Don't know what your numbers are but everyone's results are different based upon their own usage.

    Why did you come from g2 to maxx? G2 is supposed to have good battery life also.

    I briefly had the G2 as well. How do you like the Maxx in comparison?

    When you are replying or posting a message there is a camera icon in the lower right corner. Click that and you'll have options to take a photo or upload an existing one.

    Those options look like they're only available on the tablet version of the app. My android central app doesn't look like that on the MAXX.

    EDIT:
    I just found that there's also an Android Central Forums app as well that's based on tapatalk. Ok, that's where you can post the pictures. Interesting...

    You have to take a screen shot NY pressing Power + Volume Down first. Then when you're typing a message there should be either a paperclip icon or possibly 3 dots and click one of those.

    The g2 was a good phone and if I was on att, it would be the phone to get. The maxx so far is awesome. Haven't lost a 4g signal at all and I think battery is going to be amazing. I don't know how anyone can not like this phone.

    Had Verizon G2 had phone not answering issue which they supposedly fixed with update. So far so good with Maxx. Still have 2 weeks left to return. But think I'm sticking with Max.

    7 hours screen time and 3 hours talk.. you should return that phone. you should be getting 22 hours talk and 47 hours screen time. . stop trolling. I don't know of any phone on the market that does that.. an hour of screen time for 6% .. asking if that's good? 60% 10 hours screen time..

    Trolling? I have this phone, still within 14 day exchange period and want to make sure the battery is good. From what others post, their battery life seems better.

    Depending upon what else is going on and brightness level, 6% percent loss in an hour of screen time is pretty darn good.

    I read your Private Message so I'm responding to that and the quoted image. The image I quoted is actually normal because it depends on when you remove it from the charger. A phone doesn't actually continue to charge once it's at 100% so it will drain. You may get a trickle charge but it's so little that it will drain. The phone will generally show 100% at this point but it could realistically be at 95% so the first 10% isn't exactly the best way to gauge your overall battery life. Although you losing 6% with nearly an hour of screen time isn't bad either way you look at it.

    Your other images are excellent. You were on Wi-Fi it appears so the numbers are inflated from where they would be on 4G LTE but you definitely have a battery that works the way it was intended.

    Off charger 6am CST Saturday and now its 9pm Sunday. See screen shots. How do I stop android os from using 10% of the battery? Does this also mean I can talk for another hour before the battery is totally dead?

    Turn off the things running in the background used by this process. Turn off touchless access, active notifications, and widgets that update in the background, any apps that update in the background that put data into notifictations. Turn off Google Now.

    Or, keep those things on and be happy that you have one of the few phones that can keep all of those things on and not be dead in less than a day.
