You're asking for too much, maybe half of that or a little more would be good/possible.

Wait, you're right. I forgot for a moment that the Razr MAXX has a 3300mAh battery.

Lol, that phone beats out my nook color. It only has a 2000mAh battery.

I just want to make it through the day with moderate use and all my radios on. I'd really love to be able to hide away brightness, gps, wifi, 4g, and other toggles that I frequently use to manage batt life. I'm ok with charging every night when I sleep. I think the Razr MAXX might be the first to actually accomplish that.

Not bad. Had this happened last year, Samsung would have been the manufacturer of the year.......

Maybe they should invent a phone that feeds off ur own enery in order to recharge its own battery life, if that's not too much to ask . . . .

This is a trend that could turn me back to android! Hopefully HTC gets its together and follows the leaders. After having the thunderbolt battery life is #1 to me. If HTC can get the battery life on par with the competition I would to have sense again. I don't even care if the phones get thicker as long as the back is flat. Although I hope HTC can stop using snapdragon processors. Hopefully moto can sell batteries to htc and samsung. Although sammy does have a lot of dough so I could see them building an even better battery then Moto.

RAZR MAXX already does better than Samsung dreams of achieving.
It's not a freaking perpetum mobile, it's reality and manufacturers don't have an excuse for not doing what Motorola did.

I'd rather have 2/3 the battery life and swappable then the Razr. With a good ROM and kernel, the Galaxy Nexus can easily best the Razr in operating time per mAh.

This is nice to see. I don't count my self as a power user, but I do carry an extra battery in my wallet. All it takes to try and enjoy a couple hours of music and you have to reach for that extra battery.

The feeding of your bodies natural energy may sound far fetched, but they were able to make watches run on motion recharges. Also an idea would be a solar power sensor to recharge the battery during the day. Remember how calculators ran on it, may not be able to run android, but a trickle charge on the battery might help a little.

I'd like it if Samsung took the time to improve their cellphone reception first before improving their battery life.

i like your bluray players and your televisions, but your phones are subpar from my experience

I like Samsung and Android but i got to said Samsung need to learn from Fruit company. The first step is the OS need to need more optimize to maxium the battery, and this is the simpliest way. I know it can done it b/c I got an Atrix and when I installed Alien ROM the phone the battery is 30% improved, the ROM is almost identical to official ROM.

What's the deal?
Li-polymer batteries are smaller and lighter than the same capacity Li-Ion batteries and significantly extend operating time, it's strange that Samsung have not yet introduced these on the market and still sustains the old Li-Ion technology.
Sony Ericsson had been using Li-Polymer batts. since 2005.
