lol I see what you're trying to do there. Nobody said it was required, just being electronically savvy and responsible.. Merely good practice for the technically inclined. The modifications I mentioned are unrelated in my case and IMO the very reason the world is choosing Android over other mobile OS. cool.gif We do it because we can.

No disrespect but in my world it is common knowledge to break in a battery.. I've been doing it for years, phone after phone. I have never suffered the battery issues others often complain about with smartphones .

I have never heard of anyone "breaking in" their battery... I dont expect the majority of smartphone users know or do this either.. Anyhow I did not do it with any of my iPhones ever and they have always given me great battery life like apple said they would have.

Isn't breaking in batteries like from the 90's where they used to develop a "memory"? Thought that was why NiCad aren't used anymore and why all gadgets have Li-Ion

Yes. It's an archaic practice.

I don't have the weak battery life from my Droid Incredible that many people talk about, given its 1300mah battery. I charged it for 24 hours while off before i even used it, and after a few charge/discharge cycles, i've had very good battery life.

I'm not sure where us tech geeks got so entitled that we get enraged over having to do something as simple as battery conditioning on a high drain device. Android devices on the whole have had shorter battery life than iOS platform largely due to the multitasking that they perform. If you shut off all background tasks and make it so that the only way something runs is if it is actually open then I bet Evo would have a similar battery life to the iPhone.

NOTE:
I know that not EVERY app on iPhone is closed when you can't see, I'm generalizing for the sake of the point I'm making, overall many more apps are open on Android platform than iOS at any given time.

Also it seems people aren't mentioning 4G, which takes significantly more battery power than 3G. Once again, when iPhone hits Verizon and gets LTE, I'm sure you will see a drop in battery life. The Evo is an amazing phone that runs fast and smooth and the only glaring issue I have seen overall is the battery life could be better. If you don't want to deal with it, get an iPhone, but don't come on a forum saying how HTC makes "horrible pieces of plastic". It's a quality device and I have never had a phone from HTC that broke from anything short of me ripping it onto the floor via catching my foot on the USB cable and yanking the charging port out.


Also, this reminds me of a conversation I had once:

"Man, I hate my netbook, it's so slow!"

"Well, you could just edit the startup and kill some background tasks to help it run a little smoother and save some battery life as well."

"God, I shouldn't have to do that, how stupid."

*sighs* "Maybe you should look into getting a Mac"

I will say this, I use very expensive Li-Po battery's(the same technology/similar to Li-ion used in modern smart phones ) in my R/C helicopters and it is recommended to break them in, you people saying that modern battery's don't need or benefit from it , are talking rubbish.

I'm with this guy. If you actually read the manual it will mention battery care and maintenance.

Same with most laptops and cameras. It will instruct you to fully charge and discharge the battery 2-4 times before normal operation.
