Easily the Achilles heel of its predecessor, Sprint/HTC marketing needs to go into overdrive to help reassure people that this phone won't fail in the same way as the old phone did if they hope to lure many of us back.
Handicapping the phone by disabling features or bump charging is not an acceptable answer to the problem. I really hope the battery upsize and dual-core processor gives us a little more time.
I returned my Evo after 27 days of frustration. I was forced to go to the iPhone 4, the only viable alternative last summer, and consequently having to deal with AT&T's ridiculous data caps. I'm anxious to come back to Sprint but I'll not give up the completely hassle-free and adequate battery life I've enjoyed with the iPhone. For my use patterns (heavy texting, moderate web use, light phone use) I'd say the iPhone gives me at least 2x-3x as much juice as the Evo ever did, and that was with GPS/4G and all that other crap turned off.
sorry but i have to laugh at this. You left a whole phone and a carrier over a battery issue LMAO! Alot of use don't experience battery problems even without root. Some people just don't know how to manage their phones. It's like giving a teenager a ferrari and expectin him to obey all speed limits.
Evo has interchangable batteries. You can buy chargers and batterries on ebay for $5. I've gotten two batteries and an external charger for $10 on ebay. I don't have the slightes problem with battery. There's no need to, I just swap out my battery if I need to. Android isn't dummied down so If you need a phone that will do nothing then stick to iphone.
