    With the latest update, the HTC EVO LTE is complete garbage! tons of of bugs and bad battery life are totally unacceptable. Especially when there are alternatives. I'm thinking Galaxy S3 or Galaxy Note II. Because my battery life is so bad, I dream of having the Note II that could probably go more than a day with 4.1. Anybody feel like dumping their EVO? What phone would you get?
    Im ditching mine fri. This was my first android phone and i cant deal w this anymore. Rim gave me a more stable phone. Imgonna try note 2. Its very close to evolte w an otterbox size, so i really dont see size as an issue

    I fear this is my last dance with HTC as well.... Suffered with a Palm Pre for over a year and now it seems HTC is following in Palms footsteps by using their customers as "test" subjects in their experiments. I don't mind some "bumps" in a brand new device, but fix them in your first major release. Don't add bugs like HTC just did with this JB update.

    Funny. A screen shot was posted of the battery life.

    Too bad the screen shot can't be read because the update screwed this up.
    I'm assuming the battery life wasn't too good. This is too bad because the update screwed this up also.

    The update was really a big time downgrade. It is hard to believe HTC let this update go out.

    I hate to say it but this phone is trash. The phone was better before any updates came out on it!!!

    I would like a Note 2 and since I am under contract. They are running around 400-450 used.

    I guess if I sell my EVO then it would be about 200-250. Still a lot.

    How often does the average user really need to take screenshots? I'll be the last person to defend HTC at this point but for me this is way down the list of issues I care about.

    And yeah my battery life has some really bad days post update

    If you were one of the lucky ones that got the last ICS update with all of the contacts issues then this update couldn't have come sooner!

    Harsh words, how did your phone get so much worse? If you really want it back closer to ICS have you tried turning off google now and seeing what that does for you?

    I would like a Note 2 and since I am under contract. They are running around 400-450 used.
    I will probably end up returning my phone for wifi issues and that would mean evo #4, at some point I'm going to have to decide between the note 2 and the evo. I'm really leaning towards the note at this point not going to lie

    I guess if I sell my EVO then it would be about 200-250. Still a lot.
    Good luck

    For "you" maybe, but I consider this one of the main features. I (as well as others who use their smartphone for business communication) find it detrimental.

    1. The picture tells the battery level which doesn't mean anything. If it was readable it would say how long it has been on the battery to get to a low level. That means a lot more.
    2. I do screen shots relatively often. And guess what? It doesn't happy on other phones or pre 4.1
    3. The contact issue had an easy fix.....clear the memory in the contact app. Then resync your contacts. It would fix it for a while. It was only a 2 min fix so I could live with 2 min to fix it every month or 2.
    4. There are a lot of issues with 4.1 including proximity sensor issues, battery life, unreadable screen shots, screen going black when listening to voicemail and many more!!!!
    5. $250 + my evo is a lot but the battery life of the N2 may be worth it. We'll see.

    Nobody loved the evo brand more than me but the quality of the updates is just too bad to make this useable like you need it to be.

Turning off google now or a factory reset is not going to fix all the problems if any AND its gonna take me too much time getting all my apps back on.

    I said the average person on this, I totally get that some people rely on this feature, use it a lot and need it to work. I bet a very large percentage of users don't even realize this issue exists though

    Strange, my screen shots turn out beautiful. I thought the issue with this was sending screen shots through the messages app...

    I think the problem was with how he posted it to the forum, how is that the phone's fault?!?

I literally have my phone in my hand allllll day at work. Very heavy interest use and I'm using WiFi. The battery lasts all day without having to charge. In wouldn't change for a s3 any day. Touchwizz is poo!!

    I don't seem to have any of the issues people have been reporting - Jelly Bean has been awesome for me. I am generally getting two full days of use per battery charge (6am one day to 9pm the next), even with heavy Pandora streaming. I do better on battery life than my wife's SIII, and I use my phone a lot more. And that is with location history enabled. I've got to think that people having battery issues have some bad app that is killing it for them.

    Kevin
    How is that kind of battery life possible? Do you have auto sync and background data disabled? What is your set up. In don't see how that's possible with even normal usage.
