Rapid battery drain suddenly after 3 years of minimal battery drain
My Evo 4G is a little over 3 years old, with original battery. I use it usually only for occasional phone calls and a little text messaging, with the occasional internet looking up stuff. No playing of music or videos.
I keep it with settings that require minimal battery drain, incl no wifi/bluetooth, background sync etc. This has enabled me to drop only 1% charge per hour of non-use up until this week, when it began dropping 10-15% an hour with no use whatsoever.
Thinking it needed a new battery, I installed a new one, only to find the same problem.
