This fix does nothing for battery life. I updated my phone this morning and still see a large power drain even with nothing but the esential apps running in the background. Sprint and HTC you better get on the ball ASAP or you will see a large churn of customers!

How long have you had the EVO? I noticed after a week or so, the battery was alot better. I do not run any task managers/killers. I have the Sense UI with news, friends feed, stocks, and weather refreshing quite frequently.

I run internet radio on our store demo for my entire shift every day, and haven't had to plug it in yet.

My regular phone can't play radio for hours without being charged!

Yes, it's a huge touchscreen, so of course the battery drains faster than that of a Blackberry, but considering the Evo's size, I don't see how people are complaining about it!

That is the only issue with the battery, people dont stop playing with their phones. When I got the HD2 I thought the same thing. Then after a couple weeks the battery life improved, due to me not being on it 24/7.

My battery has lasted 40 hours and I still had 50% battery life. Like they said before put your phone down every once in a while and it might last through out the day.

Yea I'm with everyone else...sounds like operator error and/or operator over use. I use mine HEAVILY for streaming podcasts, browse the web, and in 4G which uses more battery. I get 8-10 hours on 4G and 12-14 on 3G/wi-fi..i keep task killer set to autokill every 30 min, turned off auto brightness and keep it relatively low and have had no issues.

Maybe it's a case of too many applications or too many radios running? Embarassed

My battery goes all day, no problem. If I need to do a lot of browsing or GPS navigation, I carry a spare, not to mention always having access to car, wall and USB chargers.

It's usually a user problem more than a technology problem. Rolling Eyes
