    Default First time 4G use

    I finallay got to use the EVO today with 4G while on a business trip in CHI. I must say i am a litle disaponted. Yes it is fast but the service area stinks and it sucks the battery life.

    Sadly, both of those are true statements.

    That's why I don't miss it much using MIUI. Never really used it much when I could.

    Root your Evo. You'll never know what you can do.

    turns out that if you stay in constant 4g signal. battery life is good. it's the moving about part where 4g drops to 3g is what kills the battery.

    it's like it's using more power to sniff for 4g signal. now if only thing would actually kick back into 4g.

    it drops to 3g automatically but to get it back into 4g it has to be switched off and back on.

    That's EXACTLY what is happening here. If you live somewhere where the 4G signal is nice and strong, and stretches out over your entire daily traveling area, the battery should be fine. For example, I live VERY close to Washington, DC, and I work in DC. I can always pick up a strong 4G signal, so my battery life is relatively good with 4G.

    I drive 30 miles or so to work each day and 4g drops but will pick back up and connect on its own. Don't have to manually tell it to scan.
