    I actually have an Electrify but there isn't much going on in that forum.

    I have noticed that when I have been using the phone off the charger and the battery life is down. No specific number but today it was at 80%. When I shut the phone off and restart it the level was back up close to full. When the batt level was at about 30% it would go up to 50% after a restart.

    It does this no matter what level I was at when I shut it down. I am using Battery monitor by SIMMO. The stock battery gauge also changes when i do this.

    I this a glitch in the phone or is it showing the true battery level? Now i'm at 97% and the time on the battery is 4hrs 20mins...doesnt seem right to me.

    Any insight?

    Where are u reading the battery percentage from? The only way to read it other than in 10% increments is by an app. The only one (I'm aware of that reads single digit increments) is circle battery widget. Is that what ur using? If not, try it and you'll find that when the phone tells u its fully charged, circle battery tells u its still only at about 95-96%.

    Im running Battery Monitor by SIMMO..It has a widget that displays bettery percentage and time on battery since charge.

    The stock battery gauge also does the same thing but obviously there is no number to go by.

    Sounds like the battery needs to be calibrated. Have u thought about rooting, or ever done it with other phones?

    Nope never rooted before. To be honest, with the exception of the week with a Samsung mesmerize this Electrify is my first smartphone.

    A battery pull should help with ur problem, or even just a normal reset. Also, if you've already updated ur software, u need to update ur prl and profile, then reset. U find those in settings, about phone, updates. The software updates pop-up on their own. A lot of problems are usually solved with a reset or battery pull. U need to be rooted to calibrate ur battery. Being rooted u can do a lot of cool things like get free wifi tethering and the webtop over HDMI hack. Here's a link to some tutorial vids to help u in case u wanna give it a shot. Very easy to root this phone, but this stuff is time consuming, so its definitely not for everyone. Good luck. http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1250697
