Upgrading to Mini from the Razr Maxx (OG)
Hey all. Has anyone here upgraded from an original Razr Maxx to the Droid Mini? My 2 years is coming up in a couple weeks, and I want to stick with the Droid line of phones. I am fairly spoiled on this phone when it comes to battery life, and I don't really want to give it up.
However, my Razr Maxx seems to be getting pretty sluggish, and I definitely want to upgrade. I know the Droid Maxx's battery will last as long as I want it to, but the phone is even larger than this phone. The Razr Maxx is pretty much the limit of what I want to carry in my pocket.
That brings the Droid Mini to the top. It has the same size screen that I'm used to, bundled into a smaller phone. I'm hoping someone here has upgraded in the same way, and I am looking for a comparison of the battery life after the upgrade. My Razr Maxx can easily go a full day right now, and up to the evening of the second day (if need be).
My typical day might have 1-2 hours of screen time, and a max of 4-5 hours on a slow day on campus/at work. It mostly includes texting, Facebook, internet, e-mail, and Netflix/YouTube. The normal days get me to about 60% after 8am-midnight, and higher usage days get me to 30-40%**. Thanks for responses!
**I suppose this data might also allow others to chime in on battery life, with similar usage.
