    That seems to be a problem with all of the smart phones. The more they do, the faster the battery drain. There are always tips and tricks on making that batter last a bit longer as well advice on going to a bigger battery. Welcome to Android Forums megznyc. We have a section just for the Evo 4g where you will find all of the above mentioned and more. Here is a link to that sub forum:

    Good luck and enjoy the forums

    I sometimes have the same info with my Evo. What I've found great is to have a widget that turns data on / off. Sometimes I only need voice / text, so by turning off data, it preserves the battery life. Then when I want to check email, turn data back on, and voila it checks right away.

    You can also try apps like Juice Defender that lets you have more control over how the phone behaves, to conserve battery, etc.

    Welcome!
