If battery life was an issue, they wouldn't have made the phone that way.
I've played Temple Run for 45 minutes today, which would have normally drained a good 30% of my battery of my EVO 3D. After nine hours of heavy usage, I'm at 57%.

Who wants to take the device in to have a battery replaced?
They all go south eventually. What about replacing with a higher capacity battery? I often drain my 3500 ma/hr battery by evening downloading data on line.

It's obvious that HTC knew what they were doing when they designed the battery for the EVO4GLTE.

Now, if the OG EVO didn't have a removable battery your complaint would be valid, but if you can't live with the battery life of this phone then you're doing it wrong.

My EVO LTE has proven to me that removeable batteries are very overrated.
I'm a pre launch user and I have yet to say "oh snap I need to charge my phone".
I'm averaging about a day and a half between charges on normal use.

I almost never talk on the phone. As in -- days at a time will go by without me placing or receiving a call. But I surf a lot, I'm digging Flipboard, and I stream movies on Netflix. I think only once in 11 days have I HAD to plug in for a boost-up before bedtime when I plug it in anyway. Now and then, I play media to force the battery nearly empty. MUCH better than my Nexus S and my original EVO.

I usually have to charge at end of day. 16-18 hrs sometimes longer. 3 g bites in my workplace so I Manage my battery by turning off 3 g while working and web browse during breaks and lunch. I take alot of pictures' although I keep very few of them. Trying to get best settings for my taste. I can honestly say you won't worry about battery life but you may have to use common sense to manage it. Even if I didn't turn off 3g battery would still have juice.

Re: FailBattery not removable. What a blunder in an otherwise oustanding device.
I had two batteries for my old Evo from the very first day I got it, and I realized that not once have I ever used the other battery. I dont even know where it is anymore, it was obviously not important to me at all. And I can reset the phone with a button press combination without having to take it apart to remove the battery.
It was really a mind opening experience once I asked myself how many times I swapped batteries, I realized my bias.
Non issue for me.FApple
