Default Important Battery Tips EVO

Ok, If you have your EVO, I am sure you think it's great, but you are worried about the battery life.
If you are planning to get one these tips help conserve battery

First thing to remember**
This thing has a 4.3 in screen and a 1 ghz processor, it also has 4G so that is more light and data that the battery has to use.

This will not last as long as an old flip phone but these tips will help.

Tips
  • Mail Sync
Meaning if you have a mail account on the stock HTC mail application, by default it updates every 15 minutes.
You can change that buy going to mail>menu>more>settings>Send and recieve> set download frequency. Mine is set to manual.
This means your phone will not wake up every 15 minutes and use data.
  • Weather and other widgets
As nice as the weather, and friendstream and my location widgets look, they also use battery. They have to keep the information up to date, so they are going to update when you are not using them. Make sure when adding a widget select the largest time for evey update, or choose manually. This goes for all of them.
  • 4G
This is the biggest feature on the phone but their are myths out their about it.

Of course 4G over 3G is going to use more battery, but not as much as everyone thinks.

The key with 4G is if you get a good 4G signal, use it if you need fast speeds and don't have WI-FI.

But this is the key, if you don't have 4G TURN IT OFF!! That's what kills the battery. Your phone is always on searching and searching for a 4G signal that the battery only lasts 3-4 hours.
Think about when you had an old phone ans whenever you didn't get a signal it would search for it and get hot, and your battery would die in 2 hours because it kept looking for a signal, this is the same thing.
  • Screen Brightness
Yes, the screen is beautiful and bright, but the brighter it is the more battery.
I keep mine on auto, but for the most battery turn it to the lowest you can.
Settings>sounds and display>brightness>uncheck automatic brightness> and lower it.
  • Haptic feedback and sounds
These are very very minor, and likely to not have a very big effect on battery, but every little bit helps if you want. Turn off all vibrations and sounds from screen taps, keyboard, or the dialer.
  • GPS and WI-FI
This is also not very well known either, but my theory is if you are not using it turn it off, it will conserve battery.
  • Live wallpapers
They are cool, but if you really want to conserve battery leave a normal wallpaper


If you have any more tips please include, hope this helps.
Enjoy the EVO!

No....If you read the thread it says, these are tips to conserve battery.

All of these things help conserve battery, because people are worried and complaining about it.

Default Hows the battery?

I was wondering how the battery is on the EVO. I was talking to a Sprint rep earlier and she told me they are telling people to expect four hours of battery life with normal use. Seriously? 4 hours?

What have you EVO owners found?

As soon as I turned 4G off the battery started performing well, especially considering how large the display is. If you are using it for 4 continuous hours, then yeah, you will burn through a lot of the battery. I'm not sure what you get on your Moment, but 4 hours is pretty standard for a smart phone.

Check out the battery meter under settings, it breaks down the battery life. Once I installed and used advance task killer, my battery life went from like 5 hours to 10 hours,with 4g.

Depending on signal I'd say 4 - 5 hours of constant use. About the same as most devices.

I charged mine to 100% around 10am. It's now 2am and I'm down to 4%. I've been beating the hell out of it all day installing apps, configuring, playing mp3s, FM Radio, browsing the web, Facebook, a couple tweets/texts.

I think the battery will be just fine. Normal use with my Hero got me to ~50% every day. I expect similar when my usage pattern settles down.

with the 50% that came with the phone it lasted 3-4 hrs. after i charged it again im still on 48% after 7hrs. 2 hrs of this 7 were heavy the remaining 5 hrs were light.

i imagine if you use the phone lightly - mediocre it will last 8-12 hrs. 5-7 if use pretty heavily. but honestly i could kill my old verizon flip phone after 4 hrs of talking

got mine around 10:30am and took it home to charge immediately. it was about 1 or 2 pm that i felt it was fully charged so i unplugged it. i've pretty much been messing with it all day installing apps, browsing websites, music/video, etc. and the phone finally died a little after midnight.

i had 4g turned off from when i unplugged it and a few hours into using the phone i turned gps off. so i basically got around 9 hours of moderately heavy usage out of it.

wow, all I can say is it's all about configuration. Turn off what yer not using (gps included) and turn it on when u want to use it.

My impression so far, couple of days on one charge easily. it's all about usage, this question becomes so subjective.

Bought a spare ‘OEM’ battery ‘pre-launch’ so I had it ready to go… on the charger for 24 hours before picking up the phone @ 7:30AM… placed the charged battery into the phone @ 8:00 AM EST and put the battery from the box into a charger…
First battery went from 8am – 6:00pm with fairly heavy use and then back into charger @ < 10% capacity. Spent most of that time ‘playing’ with everything I could find youtube, camera, email, etc… installed lots of apps… Thanks App Brain! A couple of phone calls… and last but not least, the MicroSD OTA update.
All the while I had the following radios turned off… GPS, Bluetooth, 4G (Rumor is November J) … WiFi was powered on as I needed to connect to a 802.1x wireless… some challenges with certificates, but the PHP method worked great! I basically replicated what these folks are doing here…
http://www.realmb.com/2010/01/android-certificate-installer/
Sense UI Exchange ActiveSync support… with a ‘self signed certificate’… was a dismal failure! If anyone has some suggestions here, I’m all ears… yeah… yeah… who hosts an exchange server with a self signed cert… apparently ‘we’ do.

Default Returned EVO-Battery life

Off charger at 5AM Sat. Everything except WiFi turned off (GPS, autosyncs, 4G, email, etc...) In other words exactly like my iPhone is set-up. Checked phone only twice since then. At 5PM 88% (Ok, not bad), at 6 AM this morning....red light flashing and 5% battery. WTH?

Sorry, I'm just not going to jump through hoops to basically turn into a dumb phone. Esp. not with the 'premium data fee'. Sorry...maybe next time around. For now it's back at Sam's where I picked it up Friday.

My question is did you use it at all in that 25 hours that you didn't charge it? If you did use it (even regular usage) I have no idea what you're complaining about. My iPhone wouldn't have lasted 25 hours with regular usage. Now, if you just let it sit idle for 25 hours, then yes, there's a problem. But one wonders why you'd let your phone sit, unused, for that long.

I left mine off the charger last night. I looked at it this morning. It had been off a charger for 10 hours, and it had 80% battery remaining. You've got something set up in a way that's draining you.

This honestly makes no sense. Why would someone be complaining about 25 hour battery life? I always thought hitting 24 hours was the goal with any phone since that means you only have to charge it when you go to sleep.

Maybe that's CDMA but I feel that is terrible considering you are not doing anything with the phone. In a 24 hour period about 50% of your battery would be used due to doing nothing but having it on. My iPhone does not drain batteries like that at most it would be like 5% for 10 hours.

Still giving my EVO a work out and jury is out on what I think of battery so far.

In 8 hours while I was sleeping, I lost 4% of the battery. The battery is fine if you use power saving settings.

People, ask yourself this:

If you are able to put EVERYTHING that the EVO has (hardware and software) on the Iphone....

Will the Iphone battery last exactly the same as it is now?

People talk about Iphone like it's literally the best phone ever made and has no cons, none whatsoever.

Wasn't battery life a major issue when the original Iphone came out? Or even the 2nd generation?

People like to forget that for some reason.

Different things are important to different people. There are many things about the iPhone that prevent me from buying it.

I think we have room for diversity of thought.

I agree battery life is rough on the Evo (it feels like a laptop...watching it drain while I use it). I can't get my hands off it either though. :P I got about 9 hours of regular use yesterday texting, GTalking, checking email, browsing some websites. It doesn't feel a lot worse than my old Touch Pro but it does seem it sucks the battery faster while being used. It takes some adjusting.

However, I don't think the example you give is a good argument for bad battery life. If most of the battery drained over night you either had bad signal strength or left something on. Most people leave it charging overnight. If you would have, you'd have no issue with battery life at all. Like I said, I'm not sure that's a good evaluation of battery life....it's not a typical expectation of the phone.

This is a moot point though since you returned the phone.
