I've been looking at these forums and some say they get 15hours + on regular usuage and others such ass myself get 6. Im pretty sure by now all of us have our settings pretty much the same. Gps,wifi,bt,background data off. Turn screen brigtness down etc. I think that maybe there's a bad batch of batteries out here....When the palm pre came out EVERYBODY had bad battery life so it was no question. With evo its some have horriable batt life, some have aweome batt life and the rest don't use it enough to actually know.
