    Hello there Im new to the forums and thought I would post this for some advice. This morning I took my evo off the charger after charging the whole night. For some background info I have all my accounts to sync manually and I did the gsm data trick and I am not running a live wallpaper. So I start my phone and turn on my wifi( I have everything else off) I then go watch about 10 mins of youtube videos and check my email. So I started at 100% and at the end of the videos and checking my email I was at 75%! What is going on here? I have done everything I can to ensure proper battery life but this seems outrageous? Anyone have any suggestions? Thanks in advance.

    I managed to actually KILL my phone in 3 hours and 12 minutes this morning, nothing but web browsing and 4 ~8 minute videos on youtube. When I say kill, I mean it turned itself off.

    Wi-Fi off half the time, mostly on 3g.

    Will Wi-Fi kill battery faster than 3G?

    No wifi should do better then 3g. If you have wifi use that, its faster most of the time anyways.
