That the EVO's battery is crap. I've done all the tips and tricks from the trickle test to sd card format. I even removed the Facebook for Sense account. Battery still drops dramatically. I left from my house to visit my mom last night at 8:30pm with 100% and around 12:30am it was down to 7% when I got home. Today I charged up to 100% and removed my Facebook account and it dropped to 97% in one minute! Only thing I haven't done yet was do a hard reset because I have text messages I want to save when I go to court this month. I'm very disappointed. With about 50% or more of EVO owners complaining about battery life, I would think HTC would have put out a patch to optimize the phone just like they did for the Hero. Even before the phone was released, critics and reviewers said the phone had poor battery life. I didn't pay attention to the review as I was too excited about the phone and would have hoped that they would have fixed this problem before release. I'm not getting rid of my EVO as it is a great device and does everything I need for it to do besides last the entire day with moderate use. My wife's Hero can go the entire day on one charge and still have over 60% battery life left before we go to bed (12+ hours). I really hope that it's just my battery. I will be going to the Sprint store to see if they could swap out my battery for a newer style or even one for the Hero. I want to do a hard reset but need suggestions on what app saves my text messages. I've been an Android fanboy since it was released. I even gave up my Palm Pre for the Hero. HTC, you really need to step up your game and listen to your customer complaints before you go down the same road as Palm. Sorry for the rant. I just had to blow off some steam before I go back trying to figure out my battery issue. I have no other issues besides the occasionally screen grounding issue but that isn't such a big deal.
