Hi, I got my EVO about 3 days ago and for the first couple of days I got horrid battery life. I'm talking about 4 hours, 5 max. Since then I've read through a ton of battery threads and made some changes... mainly in disabling 4g, Wifi, bluetooth, and GPS when I don't need them, changing the update frequencies of most of the background programs. When I disabled the google talk application and updated the PRL my battery life made a turn for the better. After charging the phone before I went to bed last night it lasted ~16 hours... mind you the first few it was just sitting on the cupboard while I slept. The phone "Awake Time" was 17.4% of the total time. I guess I would consider this light usage? I still think I may be having a problem because the drain under load seems excessive at about 10% per 30 minutes of moderate surfing. Just surfing here, not streaming videos or playing 3D games. Also, I noticed that the signal strength often varies wildly... like from 2 bars, to filled bars, back down to 1 bar, all withing a second or so. Is this normal? I've included some relevant screenshots and am hoping for some feedback on what you guys think. Is this the best I can expect or is there still something I can try.
