I read one review where the journalist mentioned the Evo sat on standby on his desk for 6 hours, and when he left work it was completely dead. I work a 6 hour shift, phone is on standby, and it's barely grazing the 90% mark. Are these reviewers unaware of the customizable potential of Android? I maximize use out of my phone, and easily lasts me 16 hours. Sorry, just a rant. But non-tech oriented people should stick to Apple products. I was a long time PC fanboy, because I loved customizing, playing games, a lil hacking n cracking now and then. Now I'm older, I just like to come home turn on the computer, use the internet and turn it off. So in turn, I bought an IMac. My phone has remained my lone soldier though, in my quest for nerdism and tinkering. I think people need to understand Android is for the existentialist while IPhone is for the be-told.
