    That's no different than any other phone.

    Like mentioned before, many things effect your battery life. Even with the screen off and you don't think its doing anything...it probably is. I imagine that iPhones gut anything when the screen is off. From using my itouch, I know the iPhone likes to stop background apps as soon as you hit the home button. Android permits more to run on the background. If you have autosync on, it may be pinging your 3g, so on and so forth. The iPhone works for you? Great! Glad it works for you. Just please don't try to paint all android devices with a broad brush because you didn't want to investigate why you had bad battery life. Makes me wonder if you do maintenance on your car, but I'm sure the iCar will come out soon.

    People who upgrade to the HTC EVO 3D from the HTC EVO 4G will say their battery life is outstanding compared to the EVO 4G. Why? Well, the HTC EVO 3D will sport a 1730 mah battery. If HTC would have put a 1750 mah battery into the HTC EVO 4G, people would not complain about battery life ever. I have a 1750 mah battery in my EVO and that sized battery should have came with the phone from the beginning. Had the battery since the launch of the EVO and I never need to use a spare and that battery doesn't require a special backing for the phone. But like I said, people will think the battery on the EVO 3D is outstanding but that will be a result of HTC placing a larger battery into the EVO 3D.

    I don't know about this. Thats like comparing the taste of pepsi and diet pepsi. The EVO has a gen1 snapdragon and the EVO3d is going to have a 1.2 dual core. Yes I am hoping battery life is better, but with a dual core phone, it might be the same or worse. Either way I am getting this phone.

    There have already been plenty of conversations about how the dual core processor will help battery life.

    I just started playing games on my EVO and I think those apps use a little more battery juice in my opinion. Now I see why people complain, but I'm not a gamer so it doesn't bother me one bit. Just play the game with the phone plugged into the wall outlet when the battery gets low.

    I'm just saying you have to admit a 1730 mah battery compared to a 1500 mah battery is a NICE improvement. And if HTC would have placed a 1750 mah battery in the HTC EVO 4G they would not have seen a lot of initial complaints due to people not understanding how to tweak apps on their phone. Anyway, the phone would still bleed battery if you don't tweak it right.

    For me all my apps download once a day or they are set to download manually. If I need weather I don't use the weather service connected to the app. I need to see the METAR/TAF for weather accuracy and a radar. The animations on the homescreen don't mean jack to me. The METAR/TAF gives me the times of the day for the weather. I use aviationweather.gov and since we have flash I can see the radar for all over the US in conjunction with the METAR/TAF.

    I asked a question in another thread about the battery, so hopefully someone has an answer, but has it been determined if any of the EVO 4G batteries will work with the EVO 3D?

    From the videos and/or pics that I've seen, it seems like the EVO 3D battery is shorter in height than the current EVO battery, but I'm hoping that someone has insight into the possibility.

    they appear to be completely different form factors, so I would think that the OG batteries will not be compatible.

    Stock out of the box I am certain that battery life will be about the same as the current Evo, at best. I would love to be wrong.

    If you're certain, than wouldn't that mean that there's absolutely no chance you'd be wrong? :D

    notice that what s/he's certain about is worded in a way that is subjective.

    If you want to see some decent battery life benchmarks for various phones I recommend checking out anandtech. They do about the best job I've seen of giving you a real world picture of what battery life will be like on most high end smartphones. At least their results on the Droid X mirror what my results were with that phone (I've now got an optimus S... which has really good battery life btw).

    As for the Evo 3D... I'm really curious to see how it does on battery life. I've been pleasantly surprised with the battery life of other dual core phones so hopefully Qualcomm can be competitive in this area.

    One thing that I'm sure will be significantly better is 4G battery life... the 4G radio in the Evo 4G was first gen, the 3D should outdo it handily.

    I checked that in another thread - looks like they're using the exact same 4G SoC radio at 65 nm as in the Evo.

    If true, I'd expect little or no change in poor 4G battery life.

    I thought I read somewhere around here that the 4G chip will be exactly the same as the previous....


    -edit-

    sniped by the Early one.

    That's a whole lot of analysis over the wording of an opinion. Just sayin... ;)

    WhiteNoise's post wording looked perfectly cromulent to me. :)

    Agreed. We need to start blocking off everything else on our calendars for that date.

    It's htc's fault that we're like this:D

    ninja'd. yeah that is better. just like your avatar. shrouded in darkness. I actually messed with levels in photoshop on that pic. Amazing how much detail can be brought up... I'd post it, but would want your permission first.

    Please don't - I leave it as an exercise for the curious. On some displays, all you have to do is move off-axis. ;)

    FWIW - that avatar isn't photoshopped or anything - just my laptop cam catching me late at night while posting here. Many think I'm wearing sunglasses, but as you've probably discovered, that's just the laptop display reflecting in my glasses. :)

    Those would be the cheap-ass twisted-nematic (TN) panels :) each eye sees a different color because of the off-axis difference between eyes.

    I believe you'll find this effectively happens on more than TN displays - I'm watching it happen on an IPS display.

    Try it on your wife's iPhone.

    Wow. Talk about off-topic. OK - my avatar is guaranteed to only require slightly more power to display on an LCD that a lighter one.
