    Not for me, the least it shows as fully charged is 99% but i think its 100% but the first 1% drops soon as i unplug it so i think something is wrong with your battery or phone.... Try a new battery?

    same happens with me.

    green led comes on at 90%, then goes to 100% after 10 minutes or so.as soon as i remove from plug the battery shoes 99% in 5 minutes maximum.

    well seems it is supposed to be like that

    It's not uncommon. After your initial charge, unplug it and then plug it back in again for a bit longer. After the battery cycles a few times, it won't do it. On another note, that green led isn't very precise -- the difference between 100% and 90% isn't 10%.

    Thank you for the responses, I was kinda worried since this phone has known battery issues. I love the atrix so far though, best phone iv'e ever had, gave up my wp7 for one and very glad i did.

    The phone does not have known battery issues. It’s the reality of battery technology competing against consumers demand for bigger, faster, and more feature rich devices.
