    I just flashed back to 1.12.605.6 Decided to check out HTC Sense. I started with a full battery at 8 am and at 1 pm I am at 10 percent!

    Friend Stream, Weather and Contact Favorites is all I am running on the home screens. Is it the RUU or the Sense? Then I forgot that the Video sound sucks with this RUU so I have to get rid of it,too.

    I have only texted on this thing lightly and commented on a couple facebook posts. I am shocked at the life of this. Back to NTE for me!

    It's probably the LTE radio destroying your battery

    probably, like i said earlier, horrible design. the battery should not drain that fast no matter what you do.

    This would be my guess as well.

    Don't take this wrong way, I'm honestly trying to figure out your thought process on this one.

    How do you figure it shouldn't drain that fast no matter what you do? It has a big touch screen, several radios to provide as close to constant service as possible, and if you cross through or spend extended periods of time in areas where your 4G isn't receiving good signal that only further exacerbates the problem but that's the case anytime a cell phone has to poll for any or additional signal to maintain signal strength.

    They could have put a larger battery in the Thunderbolt, within reason, and I have really not much of an idea why they didn't but that wouldn't change the speed at which the battery would drain. It would only change how long it took that battery to drain until it was totally depleted.

    I was getting ALL DAY life. That is 7 -8 AM until it hit the charger at 10 pm. At that time I had anywhere from 5 to 10 percent left before I changed out my battery. I was running DaS BamF 1.6

    I then went to the Leaked GB and reverted back when I felt my Battery getting hot and not cooling. But I referted Almost all the way back to the old radio. That radio sucked the life out of my phone with sense on it. Totally dead in under 5 hrs with minimal use.

    Now I am on 1.13.605.7 ThunderSense 1.45 and imoseyon sp 2.51

    It is lasting me just as long as Das Bamf. Its a winner! And he is right!

    All the same problems we all had from the first week or so out of the box returned.
