My girlfriend and I both bought this phone from Verizon last Friday. We both let the battery run down completely before charging it up (which I was told by the Verizon rep was the "way to go"), and we have both been experiencing GOD AWFUL battery life. Strange battery behavior has included (but has not been limited to): - Battery going from 100% to 5% after 5.5 hours straight of browsing, playing games, etc., followed by the Battery going from 100% to 5% after 5.5 hours of idle (with light texting and a few quick phone calls mixed in). Seemingly no consistency. - Battery draining down to around 30% after about 8 hours off-charger with light to moderate use (a few web pages, a few apps downloaded, and about half a dozen texts). If this wasn't annoying enough, shortly after reaching 30%, the phone suddenly took a nosedive into the red, and warned me that I had 5% battery remaining. - After the battery hit 30% (again with moderate use over a 6 hour period), I decided to pop the battery out and put it back in again. Phone held at a consistent 70% battery life upon reboot. When it reached about 30% hours later, it again took a nosedive and shut off within 5 minutes of informing me that I had 5% battery remaining. Please note that I have already received the Over-the-Air update from Motorola and have noticed NO change in battery longevity or consistency whatsoever. This is especially frustrating considering that one of the major fixes in this update was supposed to be the battery monitor. Is it really possible that the Droid X was shipped with enough faulty batteries to cause this many problems? It seems unlikely to be a battery issue, considering that both my girlfriend and I got the same phone, and have been having the same battery issues. In considering this issue, please note that: - My brightness is set to around 15-20% - I have the "Water" live background on - The only widgets I am running are the stock Weather widget, the Mail notification widget, the Calendar widget, the Sticky Notes widget, and three Contact quick task widgets. Of these, I know that the Contacts update their pictures from Facebook, but I'm not sure how often. Same with the Weather widget and the Mail widget. Any help or advice would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.
