It came in the mail today. I am charging it and then will activate.
I saw some recommendations for the Skimodo: there's one for the screen and one for the skin. Any suggestions? I'm in a Secret Santa thing for max $20, and we can post hints, and I'm thinking of posting that I want that.
Good luck with the Maxx. I'm sure that you'll love it.
I have a Skinomi skin and I like it. I've always had the wet apply, Zagg style screen protectors. I didn't get the cover for the back of the phone. First, I don't care all that much if it gets scuffed up. Second, the material seems pretty scratch resistant to me.
I have the droid maxx and have had it for a few days. I upgraded one of my other lines, got the phone for $199 and kept my unlimited data. So I know that it works. What is a skimodo? I have the otterbox commander case on mine and I love the feel. Glad you got your phone! My battery is doig farely well I guess I average between 18-24 hours on the battery. We have crappy spotty signal at home so I use wifi mostly. Other than that I love it!! Anybody have any suggestions about charging it every night? Do or dont?
I always do. I always have, for every smartphone (though every smartphone has needed a charge by the end of the day.) Once every two months, when I know I'll be home, I won't plug in one night and try to run the phone down to below 15% or so until I charge it! just to make sure that the software that calculates the charge left level is still well-calibrated.
Technically, it's best for lithium ion batteries to:
- pull off power as soon as it hits 100% charge
- do a lot of micro-charges - so, start charging at 70% left, pull power at 85%, then drop to 60% and charge to 75%, etc.
But this sort of behavior is nearly impossible so I just plug in when I go to sleep and unplug when I wake up. My last phone's battery was fine after 20 months of use and that battery went through a lot more battery charge cycles than this phone will (i.e., charging percent change of 100% is one full charge cycle; so two days of charging from 50% to full is one cycle).
