It seems that the combination of those 3 apps is burning as much as 20% of the 3500mah battery per day.
So in other words you turned off the three unique software features that are the only reasons to have the innovative x8 chip set, which is the only thing that makes the Moto X/Mini/Ultra/Maxx an interesting device.
NO THANKS, I'm quite satisfied with the amazing two full days of normal usage I can get with the Maxx without having to disable any of the features that make my SmartPhone you know, smart.
Even with the 1% drain per hour you mentioned that's 100 hours of standby...over four full days. I'm curious what your situation is where you're in need of smartphone while away from any sort of car charger, computer usb port, or an electrical outlet.
I get it, battery life is a sore spot for many phones, but the Maxx is a home run with a thin form factor, exciting new features, and a battery life that means normal people can go a full two days without worrying about using their phone.
