    Battery Life - There's Something Wrong with my EVO

    So, I lost my original EVO about 3 weeks ago and got an insurance replacement. Reloaded the new one with pretty much every app I had on the old. There's something wonderfully strange about this new EVO. I am getting INCREDIBLE battery life.

    As I'm typing this, the Uptime on my EVO is 32:17:57 and I have at least 40% battery remaining. My first thought was maybe it's the battery since a new one came with the phone. However, I got the $10, two battery/chrarger deal off eBay, and I'm getting this kind of uptime on all three batteries which I didn't come close to with my original EVO.

    Is this some HTC manufatoring improvement with newer devices, or did I just luck out somehow?

    Does that mean you're getting much longer battery life, too?

    maybe one of you can help me with MY battery life issue: I've got a stock EVO (7/11/10 purchase) and just lately the battery is totally draining faster than ever before - this is what I see when I check what's using the battery:

    Android System 50%
    Display 20%
    Cell standby 17%
    Launcher7 9%
    Phone idle 4%

    is there any reason that the Android system should be running at 50%?

    BTW, congrats on your new EVO problem - sounds like a good one to have!

    That level of Android System use is quite a bit. I'd guess some app is continuously running in the background and draining your battery. I'd try two things. Go to the Android Market and get these two apps:

    1. Android Booster
    2. Advanced Task Killer.

    Among other things, the first will tell you the battery usage of each app. Will help you identify the specific apps using all the battery. Then you can use that to set up the Task Killer.

    thanks for the info about Android Booster - I did install it, and it told me the one thing that I was afraid of - that my launcher, Launcher7, is the culprit . Since I love it SO MUCH (it emulates the Windows7 phone UI without losing the Android brilliance), I'll just have to deal with staying close to a power source ...
