    Okay so it is getting a little better. How many charges has your phone had? The reason I ask is because a new battery takes a good few charges to get to max capacity. Over the next few days let it run down to 20% or less each time before you charge it back to 100%

    I also forgot to ask what your signal is like and if your on 3g or 4g because a bad signal can eat a battery and for future reference if you have apps running in the background in future it is best to leave WiFi on when the phone is asleep.

    Forgot to ask if you let your phone run out completely before you charged it. If not then do that when it is convenient if possible.

    So I just charge my L920 to ~77% and use it to ~40% (charging it once every day), how does it fare?

    If your asking if that is the right thing to do then yes I believe that is what a lot people in the know do but after the first few weeks of a new phone but it is also good to let it run out every now and then before charging it to 100%

    I'm no expert on batteries so I am just saying what works for me, what I do is let it get down to 20% or less and then charge to full. Again I could be wrong, after all I keep my laptop battery in my fridge but that's another matter.

    I have to ask: how do you limit the charge to ~77%? My phones charge 'till they hit 100% and I don't know of an option to automatically stop at some point. If you just watch the charge and manually stop at ~77% I guess I'm out of luck because I don't use it enough to be likely to see when it gets in that area.

    I took that to mean she was just using rough numbers. I too questioned the specifics of 77 vs. a number like 75 but you can't get hung up on numbers people throw out on the internet, haha.

    Using ~35-40% through a day though is pretty spectacular. Since you have to figure the phone would only be on the charger for less than 2 hours so you'd be looking at 22+ hrs of run time.

    I received a 925 yesterday and so far so good. I charged it updated it and transferred all of my apps. After the heavy lifting the battery was not down too much. I topped it off and went to bed and after about 12 hours it was down 8% or .9% per hr. I hope this continues and that your replacement will do the same.

    I say 77 cuz in most cases I just take the phone off the charger between 75-80%. I can get that mostly because I don't play games.

    I never understood why users try to micromanage charging. Phones have a built in system for that. I set my phone on the charger when I go to bed, and I take it off when I get up. That's how I manage charging!

    I'm looking for an app that will play a clapping sound when my battery reaches a selectable percent. Then I could just plug my charger into "The Clapper": Amazon.com: The Clapper Sound Activated On/Off Switch, 1 Each: Health & Personal Care

    On a related note, I am looking for investment capital to produce and sell "The Whistler". Basically, it is a device that makes a clapping sound when it hears a whistle so that people with one hand can use The Clapper.

    Have you put all the apps that were on your other phones on it, did you restore it from the backup of your other phones? Something is not right there and this is your 3rd phone yes.

    What email sync have you. If your syncing Gmail you are probably better to not sync it and just forward it to your outlook.

    I think your problem is with the pop3, I remember seeing a post about someone having trouble with their battery and as soon as they deleted the account the battery problems stopped.

    Can you not have an outlook email and just forward your email to it, you will still get you mail instantly even if you have your outlook set to 1 hour sync. Even if you just try it for a few days.
