    I updated my EVO this morning when I was prompted for the htc software update. my phone has been uncharged since 12:15 it is now 4:04 and my battery is on 59% Much better battery life. prior to the update if my phone was uncharged for 3 1/2 hours it would be on 20 - 25%. Thank you HTC.

    I agree. Mines is way better. Not sure if it was the CDMA settings or the charging trick, but all good now!

    Was your phone idle or were you actually using it non-stop?

    Mine has had great improvement. On idle the phone doesnt drain like it did before. I didnt think it was bad before the update but now it is noticeably better!

    Mine has improved as well. Its been off the charger since 1am, however i was asleep from 1-7. I would say I started using it at 7:30. 1 hour of music on the way to work, texting and tweeting and emailing throughout the day. Downloaded a few files. I'm at 16hours right now and still have 40% left.

    My battery life has improved too! I went back to stock to get this update just to see the buzz. So far I'm just gonna stick with stock. Cheers HTC for the fixes! Keep em coming and we'll have our EVO back in the flagship ranking.

    Most battery life drain will be when the screen is on. What is your Display Up Time
    Out of 3 EVO's I had, mine was around 4 hours. I could leave the screens off and be playing music for 8 hours. I could leave it in phone mode for 1d 4hours.

    It's totally unscientific but I was able to play six continuous hours of Robo Defense without the battery pop-up warning.
    :D

    My battery life has gotten better also. I leave 4g on all the time and am still going strong @ 5. I used to be on the charger by then.

    Yep, I can actually get through a WHOLE day without charging. I never made it past 5pm before the update.

    I updated on the first day by 7:30 AM. Noticed the battery lasted all day without a charge. Surfing the net, listing to IHeart Radio while at work, talking 20-30 minutes and texting. Not in a 4G area. Bluetooth, GPS and WiFi on at all times. Performed eyeball test on how fast and smooth the phone was, vast improvement. Co-workers have other Droids, BB and IPhones, they were impressed with my phone's speed. I was very pleased with my phone before but now I'm bragging to everyone.

    I've also noticed an improvement in my EVO's battery life (Version 002, and NO issues!). Use to go an entire day with normal usage, now can go even longer!

    I updated around noon time yesterday and didn't see any change in my battery life. I have usually been getting 14-15 hours with light to moderate use. Is there some sort of reboot I should be doing?

    No matter how many tweeks I try I just can't get past the plateau of 14-15 hours of light to moderate use. How are people getting 2 days?

    What I do leave running:
    - Background data - I use gmail quite a bit so I can't turn this off.
    - TIKL
    - Fring for occasional incoming Skype calls
    - The weather channel app (NOT widget) since I live in NE and you jusy never know

    I use Timeriffic to toggle Bluetooth for drives to work and Wi-fi when I am home
    I use Advanced task killer set to auto-kill every 30 min and level is agressive

    My battery is better, but when charging all night on the charger, I unplug and within 15 minutes Im at 93% then at 85% within 90 minute I dont do anything during those 90 minutes but unplug and get ready for work, and drive to work. I dont get it, but as a whole - the battery does great throughout the day....If I charge via USB cable to the computer or car charger, I dont lose that initial 15% for hours...

    Its been discussed that it cycles between charge and drain when on the charger and "full." So if you catch it after its fully charged then it lets it drain a bit before charging again instead of running a trickle to maintain the top battery level.
