    I usually get bout 6 to 8 hours of usage before I'm in the red. Today I started a job and I haven't worked since I got my evo in june. From there till last night I havent put this thing down. Long story short, I'm a auto technician and my hands are always dirty so i haven't touched my phone but 2 times today. Been off the charger for 8 hours and I'm at 85 percent. At this rate I'm looking at 40 plus hours!! So there u have it, the secret to long battery life. Proceed with your smart comments LOL

    I work in an office and am constantly using my phone (posting this from my phone right now). I even stream Pandora in the car whenever I drive anywhere.

    I get about 6 hours...

    That's not a secret at all. I've been saying this on the forums since the phone came out...all the people posting pics of ridiculous battery numbers are barely using their phone. Any battery will last forever when it's just sitting there not being used.

    Yep.

    If you only touched your phone 2 times in one day, you're obviously going to get good results..

    It does apply, did you even read the announcement? It was a BATTERY RELATED post. Even says in the announcement, battery complaining, or battery praising goes in that thread, and other battery related posts will be moved there.

    There's already too many battery related posts filling up the main Evo section.

    I did read it....
    this is not a neg or pos post...

    it looks like a joke...
    OP was attempting to be funny... light-heated post for giggles.

    so I personally would not put it within the battery sticky... :rolleyes:

    Conversely, anyone with almost no battery life is maybe playing with their phone when they should be working.
