I have the black Verizon 8x. Now I'm at 79%, last charged 6 hours ago and 25 hours remaining.
Can anyone verify this calibration business? Can I calibrate it myself? It would be annoying if it read that there's 25% battery left even if it's almost dead
Side note question: Does anyone know if I can peel off the barcode sticker on the back of the phone?

The numbers go up and down as you use the phone well that's how mine is. So if I am using my phone pretty heavy watching videos and what not Ill check my battery and itll say 7 hours left on my battery till my next charge. If I sit my phone down for 10 minutes without touching it my battery says I have much longer left. Its estimated real time usage

Same here. If I charge it overnight, it will run out of juice just by the end of the next day so in practice it gets 2 days (no background tasks enabled, 3 exchange accounts syncing every hour, Facebook and Microsoft accounts, Wifi always on, bluetooth / nfc always off).

As for the barcode, I removed mine. You just gotta get a long fingernail under it.
A little off-topic in terms of the thread, but since you have a VZW 8X, I need to ask you something. Are you always getting a "Roaming Service"?

It'll go up and down like a yoyo, be sure to monitor the percentage more than anything. If you notice it drop a fair bit unexpectedly then start slowing things down if you can't charge it for a while. I've noticed the estimations to be wildly inaccurate (unless in battery saver mode).

Yeah, it will go up and down depending on what you are doing. I got mine on 11/15 and have had outstanding battery life. Like I said above, with moderate usage, I was going into my third day without recharging it. I then recharged it even though it said I had enough to get through the workday just because I get antsy when it drops below 35%.

When I first got my 8X it lasted honestly around 6 hours and that was with light use, and then I reset the entire phone. Today my battery finally died after 1 day and 13 hours of being on, with about 3 hours of music, 2 hours of web, and probably close to 300 texts.

yeah. I'm on my second full charge of my newly exchanged 8X (battery life much better than my first). When I first turned the phone on it said 85 days remaining
This is what it showed earlier today with about 2 hours of moderate use in the morning followed by several hours in airplane mode with location turned off:
Needless to say there's a pretty huge range in the estimated remaining time based on usage :)
