    Based upon my own experiences with Motorola products, the outcome is always the same- the customer purchases their phone, and within a month they are back in the store with battery or charging problems.

    Why is it that LG and Samsung can put a 800-950mAh battery in virtually any one of their phone models and customers never come back in complaining that their phone only holds a charge for half a day, but when Motorola uses the same rated battery, the charge only lasts half a day to a full day on any model phone, no matter how its charged or how little use it gets?

    I thought at first it was just me coincidentally getting all the customers with these issues, but I've talked to our local TMobile store, AT&T and other Verizon Retailers and the outcome is always the same- customers are only complaining about the Motorola phones.

    I literally replace 40 Motorola phones and/or batteries each month just for this specific issue, and not counting all the software issues I have with them. In contrast, I replace approximately 5 LG and Samsung phones COMBINED each month.

    Are they using some sort of black market junk parts or something?

    Anyone else have some input on this?

    Honestly, the only device I have noticed this with is the Q. With that smartphone an extended life battery was mandatory unless you could charge throughout the day or had a spare battery.

    Other than that, all the Motorola handsets I've owned (and it's a lot, obviously) have been great with 1 or more days of life on the battery.
