how long has your battery lasted F-E
i currently own a evo and its battery life is horrendous 6.5 hours tops(heavy use). Im considering switching to the epic just wondering if battery life is any better on the epic.

I went from 100% to 5% today after first full charge since getting it yesteday overnight in 6.5 hours (used a constantly connected irc session to 2 servers with androidirc, meebo connections with aim/msn/yahoo and some moderate browsing all over 3g - hey, I do also have *some* work that has to get done). It's recharging now, hopefully the battery needs to get beaten and I'll be able to squeeze eight hours of it - otherwise hello seido we need to talk soon

This is my biggest concern. Yes, it's a nice looking phone but people's usage patterns vary *so* much that there's really no way to know how long a charge will last *me* until I get it. Well, that and the lack of 4g coverage in my area (but even that isn't as annoying as battery issues.)

i had the Evo for the full 30 days. I can say that day 1 the epic is much improved. where i notice battery saving is on stand by. the evo would be battery draining just sitting there with the screen off. stand by is where you have the most gains. the screen still sucks up the most power but overall its improved.

I'm definitely having battery issues. It came out of the box with no power. Charged it to full using the wall charger. With light use it died within 4 hours. Charged it again today and again with light use it died within 4 hours. It was even connected to a PC and charging for over an hour. Once I disconnected it the battery warning light came on. I think I need to get a new battery.

Phone off the cradle @ 6:30am. Used it for Nav to work, about 1/2 hr drive. At work dl'd some apps and played with them. Enabled Wifi @ work and played some more. Browsing, and dl some more apps.. Rcvd txt msgs and sent a few. Left work @ 1:30p, and used GPs to get me home, another 1/2 hr drive. @ home, checked email and played with configuration. Idle from 2:30p to 3:00p as I cut the grass. Checked txt msgs til 4. Drank a few beers with neighbor till 5. Plugged it into the dock @ 5:30p to start charging. Had a warning just before that the battery was low.

So what is your avg time with the battery on the Epic4G? My Evo has a 2day usage with a Seido 3500 Battery, wanted to pick this up for the girlfriend but she uses her Hero pretty heavy i think she'd kill my Evo if i ever let her touch it within a day.

Re: how long has your battery lasted F-E
Took it off the charger a around 730, battery still has a bit left in it at 6, but I am recharging it right now.
Pretty decent considering that this is reasonably heavy first day use. If I can get 10+ hours with moderate use on a regular basis, I will be happy. I just wish it recharged as fast as my pre.

Made it through the day. Used it a bit more hard core towards the end.

Afraid to use the phone? The one that showed 17hrs with 10% left, I got to 18 1/2 hrs. The Up time was 18 1/2 hrs with awake time of 6 hrs. 6 hrs of using a phone in one day is hardly "being afraid" of using the phone... Even on days where I would get 8 or so hrs, the display % was NEVER more than 10%. Do yourself a favor, don't pretend to know what you're talking about

i got 14 + hours yesterday. my voice calls was at 42%. i played around with it in the morning for about an hour then went to work. when i got home my wife and i played with the phone for a couple hours, downloading apps, playing games, and just checking out the phone in general. i gotta say, i'm impressed with how long the phone lasted. this was on a full charge.
