Default Will EVO 3D have improved battery life over EVO 4G ?

Only real complaint I have of my EVO 4G is the poor battery life. Even though I am rooted with a great ROM and custom kernel for better battery, my battery life still doesn't come close to my Brothers iPhone4. My phone dies by end of the day.

I see the specs of the EVO 3D, having a larger stock battery, and dual cores should be more efficient on the OS, and this phone was built around Gingerbread that is better performance than Froyo.

So adding all that up, I hope to God this new phone has much better battery life ?

Thanks laf.

I am sure HTC is well aware of the bad press the EVO 4G got on release in regards to poor battery life. So maybe they worked extra hard to make sure the new EVO is improved.

Do you have the original specs for the EVO 4G. Be curious what HTC wrote down for talk time last year.

I think it will probably the same. It has a bigger battery but also a dual core processor.

dual core = more power efficient

not dual power



anyway this thread really isn't useful right now. Since noone really has the phone we are stuck with speculation and specs that can be altered heavily. In theory bigger battery plus dual core sounds like a longer battery life, we really won't know how it compares until release

I wonder how much the graphics will drink that juice. I don't know much about the 3D technology but I assume the graphics will be more demanding and graphics sucks so much power.

This was my thought, I mean 3D has to be graphics intense since it's essentially 2 pictures running side by side.
