    Hell, take it back for a replacement. As you read, I saw a huge improvement, so there was obviously something up with mine. You will either end up with the same battery performance or see an improvement as I did. The only bad thing that could happen is ending up with a phone that may have other issues.

    All day today I've been having data outages (when out and at home), something I never had with my original MAXX. I am hoping this is something on Verizon's end and not a sign of an issue with this replacement.

    For those of you with a bad battery, be sure to know what you are comparing. I had a TB with extended battery, and this phone does just as well if not better. Sure, some days when I'm at work I leave with 30%, but the TB was the same, and it's due to poor signal. On the weekends, I haven't seen it dip below 60% with an overnight charge.

    For your sake, i also do hope it's just something on verizon's end, and usually IT IS.. So try not too worry too much about it. As for me, i got a phone call from the verizon rep iv'e been speaking with Today, and this Dude hits me with the BAD news that; There was a DELAY with my New Maxx Order because EVERY store in my entire area, is "out of stock" on the Maxx! Also, he tells me that Their warehouse is ALSO out of stock on this damn phone!! So now i have to play the waiting game!

    Quite true, which is why I've kept my eye on it just to make sure it was an actual issue. One thing I forget to mention in my original post was that the phone dropped from full charge to 80% yesterday after 20 minutes of no real use; I checked a few settings here and there.

    I'll run by a corporate store tomorrow and swap it out with another. Hopefully not for one with other issues, and hopefully this was simply a case of a bad battery.
    Wow, mine did the same thing today. After less than an hour I was down to 72%?
    I finally reset it and now it seems normal. Something not playing nice?

    I'm still a bit puzzled by my battery life. In view of my office building's poor signal reception, I shut down the phone's data yesterday and after around 7+ hours the battery had dropped to around 92% with very minimal usage. Today, I left data on but downshifted to 3G at the office. After checking the weather a few times and Dl'ing something from Market (no phone calls or texts), the battery dropped to 82% in 8 hours. After getting home and toggling 4G back on I made a 45 minute phone call and the battery dropped to 78%. Right now, after another hour, it is at 77%. I suspect that, overall, given my relatively light use, the battery is OK but I really wonder about these reports of insane battery life with this phone. Having 4G on all the time and using the phone at a medium level doesn't jibe with some of what I'm reading. My 14 day return period ends on Friday and I'm not convinced that I would have reason to swap the phone for another one but if someone can convince me, I'm open to listening.

    I completely agree with the above post.

    I don't doubt the other users reports of super long life, but it would be great if we could start a thread which would provide; (1) total battery life, (2) screen on & talk time, and (3) phone settings, such as; data settings, 3/4g, Bluetooth/wifi, display brightness.

    If we did that and kept the info limited to those few parameters, it could be a useful guide for others and would help with setup/settings.

    Just a thought....

    Anybody check the battery usage settings? Mine says "media" is using 40 to 50 percent of my battery @ any given time?. I tried force closing but it just restarts. Any ideas as to what this media is? Is it the culprit b/c with a full charge and moderate use im getting only like 8 hours max b4 im down to like 20 percent which isnt bad but i expected more. Ciuld i possibly have a bum batt?

    yesterday i setup my laptop so it would not go into standby (to use motocast) and at the same time i was running google music to upload my music to the cloud. this seemed to seriously drain my battery. i ran these apps for approx. 4 hours and my phone was dead by 9 pm. turned it on about 8 am.

    I hit 26 hours when I hit the mark of 10% battery left... Took four 3-5min vids, many photos, listened to a full CD via 3.5 plug, texted 25 times, GPS'ed for about 15-20 minutes, few phone calls and a few trips to FB and the web...

    Impressed, after two complete drains and full charges!
