    I unplugged my X at 630am, played 2 songs, made one 5 minute phone call and texted maybe 5 times and by 750 I am down to 90%. 10% an hour?!?!?! This cant be right? What am I doing wrong?

    90-99% shows up as 90%

    80-89% shows as 80%

    Ha...I guess that makes sense. Follow up question. My contacts show all my friends on facebook. Is that a battery drain?

    I would think it would depend how often it updates, otherwise it's just data---so it should be fine...Unless it's updating that list every 15s.

    Actually going to 90% in that amount of time is about average. Don't stress out about your battery too much.

    My battery meter varies day by day. Sometimes i'll stay at 100 for up to 2.5-3 hrs after i unplug in the morning. Other days, like today it drops to 90% after an hour or so of being unplugged. I usually get about the same performance anyway though
