You should clarify Mosspuppet in the correct namespace: com.appplefanboys.MossJobsoPuppet . When has he never not absolulely luved an Apple device? Ummm....never to my recollection. Many reviews mention the limitations of 4G, but I think this is to be expected given the infancy.

Engadget's recent podcast elaborates on the battery life of the Evo.
If you have a strong and constant 4G singal, 3.5 hours can be achieved.
However, if you're in an area that switches from 1X to 3G to 4G and back, you're battery life will be less because the constant switching of radios will reduce battery life.
That has to be taken into account.

Big Moss probably really pounded the HD video streaming non-stop which IMO is the #1 battery killer. also - turn off WIFI and GPS when not in use. normal daily usage pattern will be different.
also, the battery needs some time and a few cycles to "condition".

I never expect to get more than 2 hours use on modern smart phones these days.
Even laptops never seem to get as long as they say, for me at least. Maybe I use them more than the average person, unsure.
I already ordered a 1750mAh battery and may order another one if need be. Unless you are always near a charger that is usually the best option.
