Yes and no, ya know?

I get great life (8 hours screen on, wifi) on my LTEvo and average over 16 hours/day no matter what, with a 2000 mAh battery.

Maybe the 2300 mAh with this setup will perform similarly. Those of us grown accustomed to and ok with 16 hours/day or so won't care.

But even that performance isn't enough for some folks. Stick in 3100 mAh and I doubt you'd get more buyers - a day is a day, and that's all I've ever asked for within a reasonable budget.

It's the non-removable battery that's making it a non-starter for many. People losing juice roaming with crappy signals (either kind) and doing a lot of talking for work - just need more.

In my opinion.

PS - bet ya the Sprint version won't be standard.

PPS - that new live crap on the homescreen looks catastrophic, both as eye candy and as the ultimate battery waster.
