Don't say that. It makes too much sense.

No data defeats the purpose of having a smartphone, doesn't it?

I guess you missed the part where it says "worry-free". You don't have to cripple you phone in order to save battery.

I guess you missed the part where I said "when you're not using it" because you can turn it back on when you go to use it

So in essence a glorified dumbphone or a PDA. Weather and mail apps won't sync themselves, calendars and contacts won't be backed up until you toggle the data connection.

A smartphone IS a glorified PDA, where do you think the idea came from? All they did was have a dumbphone and a PDA mate with each other.

Besides, if the phone is in your pocket, purse, whatever, do you really need to to be constantly syncing? If its not in your hand and you're not looking at it, you're not using it.

HTC Butterfly S has about 84 hours of worry-free battery life ;)

I don't think so... Even my 12 months old RazrMAXX was alive for 5 FULL days with Data OFF (with almost 7 hours of voice calls and 3.5 hours of screen ON time).

goto goo.gl/WJPDj

With data always ON it goes for minimum 2.5 days..

In all seriousness, this seems extremely unlikely. Maybe slightly better battery life than the previous generation of the Droid Maxx but not significantly better.

48 hours?? That's about standard for my HTC One if I'm not using it heavily.

I highly doubt that.

I'm running a custom rom/kernel. I was EDC Vegas last month and would go in with fully charged battery at 5pm and be at 70% by the time it was over at 6am. I was taking videos and photos inbetween all of that too. It really is a great phone.

Meanwhile others have reported higher numbers for battery life. I'd actually trust Phonescoop over Engadget, Verge and PhoneArena.

Honestly, coming from Google and I do believe it and if there is something the droid motorolas are Buenso is in batteries.

48 hours of worry free battery life? Everyone has their own standard of use. One person's "heavy use" might be another's mild use. I think they should give us the full video playback results to really test the battery life.

I just hope they have triple checks on those batteries. We saw what the Galaxy S3's battery did to that woman. If a battery with 2x the capacity blew up... hoo boy.

The Razr HD Maxx can last longer than most tablets.

So with a bigger battery and more efficient processor, the new version will last 48 hours with ease.

the Droid Razr MAXX HD is currently the only modern SMARTPHONE that you don't have to worry about being near a charger for any length of time with.

this is certainly possible. i could get around 30 Hours of mixed usage with my MAXX HD so add in a few mAh and some better battery efficiency and you may start to wonder if Unicorns are real.

Indeed. Now if only Motorola would improve their cameras some more so that I wouldn't have to compromise on anything.

Hopefully the new MAXX will remedy the previous short comings. I would definitely consider buy one off contract.

Agreed. The only two devices that even come close are the Note II (though that's technically in a different class than a smartphone) and the Butterfly S.

I can't wait for Motorola to raise their Maxx standard.

38. KingKurogiii (Posts: 5647; Member since: 23 Oct 2011)


yeah, i'm using the Note II now and even with power saver on it can just get me a little over a day and a half.

Does a Nokia 3310 truly ever run out of juice though? ;-)

Lol, this can join the term "all day battery life" for nomination of bull crap.

Gimme a break, mileage vary

Sounds like another marketing BS

But here's a useful tip...everytime you go to sleep, play a game or watch a movie, activating the Airplane Mode helps a lot

Sometimes I even deactivate my sim card ( a feature in JB 4.2) when I go travelling to avoid that dreaded cell Standby battery drain

I can get 1 day+ of extra heavy usage from my note 2 and easily 2 days moderate/heavy usage from it. So why would the maxx with its smaller screen yet bigger battery not get 48hrs? Think on guys, this is easily possible.

the thing is... We all have our own definition of ''moderate/heavy usage'' because we often visit web pages to a varying . fluctuating degree, If you are an ADHD user (like me) a certain webpage won't last 30 seconds on the average till I open another one, and that easily drains the battery !

I sit at home all day with my phone. Believe me when I say I use my phone FAR more than the average person.

If the new Maxx can make it through 2 full days without charging, can we expect the Ultra to make it 24 hours? I'd settle for that.

36. johnriii (Posts: 230; Member since: 17 Oct 2011)


I have three co-workers who have the original razr maxx, and their battery life is still quite stellar. so much so until they have zero desire to upgrade, until I show them this.....

Don't forget Max Battery Booster, it can combine with every other energy saver
