    Default batt going down 10% at a time

    Im using circle battery as my battery indicator on my home screen and I've noticed that it only goes down 10% at a time instead of showing like 89 or 88%. It only shows it in tens. Is that just the way the phone does it. My old phone the vibrant never did that.

    Sadly, this is a limitation of both hardware and software. Its not actually going down by 10 but it that's his its measured. Its with every droid phone

    use Battery Left and it will estimate the actual battery level and time you have left before the battery is dead.

    Yup the dx shows in increments of 10,or 5 I forgot which ,lol so you just know when your appx.battery level is.

    While the dinc shows the actual battery level.

    Its a Motorola thing. The X, OG droid, D2, and probably the dpro do it too
