    Is it normal for the screen to be using this much battery? Ever since I've gotten this replacement the other day, the lowest I've seen it is at 59% and that was very briefly. It use to be on auto brightness but last night I moved the bar to very low. I had it unplugged over night and this was the most it has gotten. Does it still need time to "break in" or something? I got this replacment the other day.

    Hey Drhux, I see that in your screen shot that you are roaming. Is it like that for most of the day?

    I use 2x battery on my LTEVO. It is more of a battery percentage widget in the notification bar more than actually saving battery life. I get between 10 and 20 hours of life in my day to day. 10 hours when I work because working in a slow traffic sprint store ='s lots of "studying"? With normal day to day , checking emails, texting, facebook, and constantly taking pictures and video; I'm getting easily around 15-20. Overall happy coming from my Epic 4G Touch battery that seemed to drain to 50% while I'm laying in bed checking emails and texts for about 30 minutes.

    I absolutely cannot believe the battery life you guys are experiencing. I get nothing like what you all are reporting. Take it off the charger before work in the morning, and it's back on after lunch about 7 hours later, and that's with me pushing it to make 7 hours. Looking at my stats now...I've been on battery 3 1/2 hours, and I'm already at less than 50%, and I haven't really used it in that time. What's your secret?

    Sounds like you definitely have something wrong there. Is the phone only barely getting signal?

    The people getting 2+ days seem crazy, but I haven't been able to kill the phone in under 12-13 hours. But that's when I'm somewhere with bad coverage and I use the phone a lot. If I'm getting a good signal and go easier on the usage, 30-36 hours is normal.

    So this is what I've been getting. As you can see its not good. I've also had to charge it around 5 or so hours of use. And this is with the advice I've gotten in this forum. Any suggestions after seeing my usage?

    Wow. How many hours is in your screen usage? This seems to eat up the battery.

    Looks like the EVO LTE is a much better battery than the Galaxy nexus, but then I can remove mine in my GNex lol

    Is anyone using Juice Defender or any apps like that?

    Don't believe the hype. While alot of people say they get super long battery life, they are not telling the full story. If you look at their usage bars and stats you can discern they've left their phones idle for long periods of time yet claim "moderate to heavy use". Its deceiving. Real usage seems to yield about the results you're getting. Its not you, its them. lol

    So I fully flashed my Evo over to cricket with everything working flawlessly and now my battery last over 2 full days! Crazy...so I'm using the s3 on Sprint and Evo (biz line) on cricket. So I'm assuming it's Sprint network that was draining my battery so badly when I wanted to blame HTC.

    Using both phones frequently I can tell you there are pros and cons to both devices and probably comes down to personal preference and what you look for in a phone.

    Check it out, this is been on cricket all day and I've lost no service quality, I'm stunned. On Sprint battery would be dead by now.

    This is a combination of my weekend usage pattern and 1 day of normal thus far. I don't think my stats fall into the normal category since I rarely make or receive voice calls..

    How can you say great battery life isn't possible. I use my phone heavy every single day and I haven't gotten anything less than 10hrs.

    4hrs 18min of screen time. A little over a hour n a half talk time. Over a hour of internet time. Emails, videos during lunch, and pictures of the kids. I love the battery, but I HATE THE MULTITASKING!!!!Attachment 28685Attachment 28685

    I had a day where my phone was off the charger at midnight(power outage) did not plug it in all day at work made over 20 calls throughout the day. Average data usage I.e. checking weather, facebook, and email. And 17 hours later had 37 percent battery left.

    I have had my EVO 4G LTE for a solid week. I average about 16 hours a day before charging the phone. I do admit that I turn off blue tooth when I am not using it and use wifi when I can. Also since I have corporate email I did modify my push settings in my touchdown app. If I can keep this kind of battery life for at least a year, I will be satisfied. Coming from an O.G. Epic 4G even with an external battery I would be lucky for 8 hours on one charge.

    Yes, but if you turn off 3G, I believe you render your phone no longer a phone- right? No more incoming text or phone calls?
    Wow havent been on in quite some time. Granted this is most surely answered... Turning off 3g just puts your phone in 2g mode allowing you to make calls and text but no internet services till toggled back on
