    Coming over from the Thunderbolt, I was really used to the 1% battery countdown. Noticing that the Bionic only counts down in intervals of 10%. Is there a way to change this in the settings? Or an app that does this via the phone and not some kind of wonky calibration method?

    Havent rooted yet, but probably will tomorrow. Haha

    Thanks for the help...

    Try the Circle Battery widget.

    This. It is extremely accurate. When it flips to 15%, the window pops up saying it needs to be charged, while the stock battery monitor may only show 20 or 10%.

    "Battery Monitor" by simmo app will just show the percentage in the status bar on the left side. Has always worked great for me.

    I can attest to that. I use it and its very very accurate. Everytime I drain my battery completely it's accurate to the last 1%. Just last night I had it down to 1%, watched about 25 seconds of a youtube video and my phone was dead :p Also, I have it set to turn from white to orange when Im down to I think 30% and from orange to red when it's down to 15% battery left.

    Highly recommended, here is a Screenshot of it in action on my phone (top row, very left)

    yes to cricle battery widget app! I like how it can be customized. the post before me has the white skinny version and mine is grey fatter setting. I have it set to turn orange at 30% and red at 15%. works great.

    I will have to give these apps a shot. I cant live with 10% changes....
