With the recent announcement of the new Motorola device the Droid RAZR, the manufacturer stated that the device would be one of the thinnest handsets in the world. Measuring in at only 7.1 mm thin, this definitely proves true. However, because of the extremely small size Motorola had to make a decision that has received negative reception from some: the device will not include a removable battery.
The reason this choice has had such a poor reaction is because the device will be running on an LTE network, a process that is known to drain battery life extremely quickly. Without the possibility of a backup battery or an extended battery to use in case the phone goes out, many prospects have been unsure whether the aesthetics are worth the risk. To ease growing concerns, Motorola has released a video showing a newly developed app called Smart Actions. According to Motorola, this app will allow users to customize their Droid RAZR to fit their needs and use the battery more efficiently.
The Smart Actions app is similar in action to other power management apps such as Tasker in the fact that it uses the time of day, the current apps being used, and even the user’s location to automatically turn off settings, close apps, or even automate tasks such as automatically turning the phone to vibrate mode when at the workplace to increase battery life.
According to the video demonstration provided by Motorola, by changing just a few settings in the Smart Actions app your Droid RAZR device can operate much more efficiently and even save up to 30% your battery life. The app can even learn about your personal habits and make suggestions to cut back on battery consumption.
