    Now that there is a HUGE group of battery testers walking around, I'd like to find out how your battery life on your Evo compares to your battery life on your Pre. Since everyone uses their phones differently, I'm just looking for a better/same/worse type of response figuring your are using your Evo similarly to your Pre (number of email account pushing to your Evo/Pre, streaming music, etc.).

    Pre is crushing it. Although, it seems similar to pre day one vs pre day 365( if that makes sense)

    Way better as of now. But tomorrow I'll be able to get a better idea of it after I charge it up over night and then see how long I could go through out the day before charging.

    After changing sync settings for two email accounts, Facebook, Twitter, calendar, weather, and news to every 2 hrs or so depending on the app, and signing out of Google talk (which killed battery on the pre too), battery life is much nicer. I've still got Bluetooth, gps, and wi-fi on. 4g is off and its probably going to stay that way unless someone with an iPhone starts talkin' trash.

    My EVO came with about 40% battery life out of the box. 3 1/2 straight hours of playing with it with the screen on and it just now hit red. My Pre would have coughed up blood in that same usage on a full charge.

    agreed! This thing seems to handle the work load a hell of a lot better than the Pre, I Have multiple things running and it is not draining the battery. I am impressed so far

    Not even a comparison. Even with my Seidio battery on my Pre, the EVO kills it.

    Evo is doing about the same as my day 1 pre, but keep in mind that our beautiful 4.3 inch screen isnt powered by smiles and rainbows

    My Evo is kicking butt for over 7 hours of heavy use so far. Battery just went into yellow. Started with 75% charge and still have about 18% left.

    My Evo kicks the Pre's battery.

    It's just more stable. No random 20% droppage.

    NICE!!! Thanks everyone. I'm not the kind that needs to have a battery last for 4 days, but its nice to know that I will see an improvement from what I have now.

    Day 1 or in the EVOs case all of week one will be a bad reflection of the actual battery use ... Everyone will be on their phones trying new things and NEVER putting it down ... Making sure its cozy on the pillow and tucked in tight at night ... lol ... I know I have pretty kept my phone plugged in most of the day while I was getting to know her ... In the car ... In the cafe ... At work ... In the diner ... At home ... So its hard for me to tell ... This morning I will try to keep it unplugged to see how well it does but just to be safe ... I will buy a battery for an emergency type situation.

    My EVO is destroying the Pre's battery life (Day1 vs Day1). Can't compare to my Pre with the Seidio 2600mah battery though

    Agree with majority doing better then the Pre did. I will be running it down today without the charger to see how many hours I get before it lays down. But I still ordered that two battery and charger deal from EBay for $10.99

    With 4G on and with heavy use (while stationary), I get about 2-1/2 hrs before the low batt indicator appears. I've done this 3 times since yesterday. Certainly not a 'test', but just an indicator of how fast the battery can go with heavy 4G use.

    EVO is doing circles around my Pre. My daily Pre routine was unplug before work - on/off touchstone during work hours and then plug in as soon as I got home at the end of the day. If I forgot to do any o those things.. i didn't make it the whole day.

    EVO lasted me all day yesterday - killing the snot out of the phone showing off..

    If 4g in general sucks juice like that Sprint is going to have a problem. I have been very impresses with 3g battery life thus far.

    Yeah... maybe software needs to be optimized in handling 4g..?

    I'm fine with 3g/wifi... it's fast enough for me.

    Seemed like my Pre had better battery life, but I am definitely using the evo a lot more b/c of all the fun!! That might have something to do with it.

    How did you change settings in e-mail accounts exactly ?

    My Evo is MUCH better than the Pre was, but I haven't tried it out at work. That's when I'll really know the difference.

    Go to Menu--> Settings--> Accounts & Sync.
    Try adjusting those settings.

    My Evo doesn't drop randomly like the Pre does.
    Also, I use it constantly and it goes down little by little.

    If I use my Pre constantly, BAM... there goes 30%.
