- Battery saving tips
- Use the Motorola charger that came with your phone
- it may take several charging cycles for your battery to reach optimum performance
- your device will warn you when its battery is getting low. Charge as soon as you can and manage your phone features to reduce battery usage
Managing your phone features to reduce battery usage
- turn off Wi-Fi when you are not using it
- turn off Bluetooth (not enabled by default) when not in use
- avoid live wallpapers as these will drain battery faster
