Unless the newer Lithium Polymer need that kind of care, but that seems like it would be a step backwards. Someone else on this thread was talking out their use of Li-Poly batteries, maybe they have a better idea?

Once you put a kernel with HAVS on the Evo, battery life gets pretty awesome.

each to his own, if you want apps and stuff go with an iphone, if you want customization go with an android if you want social networking go with a blackberry, it's apples to oranges.

Unlike CPUs or video cards, there aren't universal benchmarks for phones, they all have their own strengths. However apple sucks so...

for all the poo poo i hear about the "evo 4g and battery life" i've never had a problem. I can go a full day and just recharge at night like always. the one thing that makes me really happy about switching to sprint is atleast I can make a phone call, as oppose to my Iphone and AT&T. i would loose my call after a few min.s almost every time.

iOs was cool, but i like the way android works so... yeah... it was a good switch.

I usually get 15-20 hours out of a battery, even with bluetooth, Wi-Max, and WiFi running. No idea what your talking about

Wrong - even the newest, most expensive, high quality batteries require priming cycles. When I get an order of say, the highest quality, most advanced Saft batteries in - batteries designed for long life, deep cycling, and used in "can not fail" applications - I still need to put them on the Cadex and do a priming cycle in order to obtain full capacity and use. Regular batteries used in consumer applications will certainly benefit from a few charge-dischage-charge cycles to yield peak capacity.

I can't say for sure which helped or a combination of both, but I definitely see vastly superior battery life now that I have discharged/charged a few times and turned off things until I use them on my evo 4g. Syncing/wi-fi/always on mobile, etc. I now get a full day and usually more if I don't use wi-fi all day. I am going on around 38 hours on a charge atm.

You guys arguing about battery life are ignoring the primary problem with the Evo: IT'S TOO DAMN BIG!!! One of my subordinate managers carries one around, and I cannot help but mock him every time he pulls it out. It's just ridiculous.

Truth. I'm not arguing with the battery gearheads that are trying to squeeze every last drop out life out of their battery...maybe it helps, I don't know. And to the person who wanted documented proof that NiMh batteries don't have memory: go look it up yourself, lazy bones. This is commin effin knowledge, has been since NiMh batteries were released en masse. God, I used to hate worrying about screwing up my batteries, and I am SO happy that I haven't even had to THINK about it for longer tha I can remember. (Until you guys brought it up here...nice going, fellas!)

Yes.

Yes.

Well, for one, I don't think it's a feeling of entitlement that we don't want to do something that hasn't been necessary for a decade. Why not ask how we got the feeling of entitlement for cell phones in general, landline phones work just fine and are in fact FAR MORE RELIABLE than cell phones?

Second, the very notion that you think this is about tech geeks exposes a half-thought position. Smartphones are NOT toys for tech geeks, they haven't been since the iPhone was released (and thus for thre ENTIRE LIFE of the Android ecosystem). Your probably clueless mother or grandmother is going to want one of these someday, if she doesn't already. Should she have to know about crap as obscure and ridiculous as battery conditioning? Of course not!

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.
Perhaps. I am of the camp that thinks the first-gen Verizon iPhone will actually be CDMA, sometime in the spring; and that the iPhone 5 will be LTE in late summer. Just speculation, but I think it makes sense. So I think we have a while to wait before we can assess this hypothesis.

Oh they do, do they? Okay, I'll play along. I've bought a couple of cameras in the last six weeks...let's check the manuals!

Canon PowerShot SD1300 IS camera...bzzt!
Canon Vixia HF M31 HD camcorder...bzzt!

Oh, and I bought two iPhone 4s too...bzzt!

No no, stay away from the BlackBerry! Only get one if you need corporate e-mail and that's all they will let you have! Even then, beg for an iPhone...it's got the basic security features that corporations need.

(Android does NOT yet, but it would be silly to think it's not coming...they need to hurry up and get that stuff in there. Not sure in the Android fans would be okay with the security requirements though, since by definition they have to give up some control of their devide.)

Why stay away from blackberry's? They are amazing for social networking, iOS and android have absolutely nothing on blackberry messenger. Sure they're slower for web browsing but they also compress data to crazy small amounts so you can browse more of it than you could on an iphone or android. Blackberry's are also way better for corporations because you can setup tons of them at once over a very short period of time. Also blackberry's receive their emails as soon as they reach your inbox where iphone only checks for them once every couple of minutes (15 is the minimum amount of time between checks if I'm not mistaken) and android only recieves the email immediately if it is from gmail.
