    Default Droid MAXX: Umm, normal battery usage?

    So i used my maxx for one day officially off the charger at 7:30 and 1% at 7:30pm... i used little bit of google, bit of maps in the evening and most of the day with bluetooth on streaming music from phone.. Also some texting and wechatting ...is this usage too much for this phone to handle or the battery will get better?

    Install GSAM battery and see what is using up the battery. I can go over 2 days without a charge listening to slacker, texting, emails, etc.

    Heres my results so far today. Off the charger around noon on WiFi from about 12-230 and from 230-730 on 4g LTE. Still at 86 % battery with around 1 hour of screen on time. Its been on for about 7.5hrs total so far. No BT no GPS. Auto screen brightness. Basically texting Facebook, web browsing, snap chat, instagram.

    Here's my battery usage for today. Unplugged at about noon on the 27th and still going strong at 60% only about 2-3 hours of this was on WiFi. The rest was in 4g LTE. This mainly used for web browsing, texting, Facebook, snap chat, instagram, clipboard, and the AC forums. Watched a few YouTube videos and that's about it.

    It's hard for me to get a good read because the area where I work has horrible cell coverage and wifi is very weak. So my signal is always in the red. If I don't charge my phone during the day, my battery will be gone by the evening. However, if it was any other phone, it would be dead after 4 hours. The smart thing for me to do is leave the data off, but my phone us like my arm... It's figuratively attached to me.

    My maxx is still going from being unplugged on the 27th at about noon. Heres some screenshots of my battery stats to conpare. Also I have GPS Bluetooth all turned off. WiFi was on the whole time but only connected for probably 12hrs and the other 18hrs was on 4g LTE. Also this includes about 7 hours if sleeping.
    Also auto brightness and Not a lot of streaming either.

    Mediaserver is what is playing your music. If you tap screen, what is the screen on time?

    It looks like wechat is consuming a lot of battery as well.

    It looks like you could possibly have your GPS polling a lot as well - do you have the GPS set on?

    Settings / WiFi. Tap the menu control on the bottom-right. Hit "Advanced". Turn off the top option, "Network notification".

    Yes GPS uses a lot of battery, esp. With the phone/screen on. I only have it on when I need to use navigation and turn it off immediately after when I'm done...

    GPS only uses battery when it's used for location. You can leave the radio on and it will not drain battery until an app looks for location.
