It is getting less than half the battery life of the I-phone 4G and the I-phone is pushing more pixels. (And no, I'm not an apple fan, it is why I own an Epic...)
To the earlier poster who said 4G drains faster than 3G, that actually isn't the case with this phone. (see link above.) It is odd that 3G drains faster and I'm guessing that's a major design/software issue.
Fact is, this phone can't make it through the day even WITH everything turned off. I have 4G, BT and Wireless disabled and my phone is dead before 2:00 just sitting there... It drains about 20% per hour doing NOTHING with applications turned off.
Anybody have any advice, any Sprint people have an explanation for how something that uses AMOLED gets WORSE battery life than the HTC EVO? (I went with the EPIC due to the horrible battery reviews of the EVO, now I have a WORSE phone in this regard.)
Other than battery life, I love the phone though.
