Default Htc Amaze stock battery life is actually very decent AGREE?!

I just got the amaze for the second time..... Never cared to notice before but I think for being htc and htc is well known for its quality hardware but terrible battery life.. I was in awe over the battery life for it on a first time full charge !!
Off charge at 7 am and heavy usage till 3pm and with 70% battery left after 8hr..
Reallyy!!!!
All my evos and mytouch devices in the past on OTHER CARRIERS were dead by 12 Noon!!
Maybe htc got it right with this phone.. I'm really content with stock Rom , which makes me wonder how much better can it get with this talk about Energy 03.10.12 Rom....being stellar Battery life!!

Energy is nice. I get great battery life. But if you're content with stock then just roll with that.

I can kill my battery in 7 hours if I use it really heavy, or make it last 24+ hours with little to no use... It really varies and "usage amount" is all relevant

I just literally hit the yellow mark in my battery department, which means 30% left. I took off charger at 9 am and is now 800 pm and I have streamed quite a bit of music, about 20 texts and a few calls, little web such as this very forum.

Even forgot to turn off my BT. So going on almost 11 hours. I should get my usual 10-15 hours of use. All on stock.

The only phone that I've ever owned that poor battery life that could compete with the Amaze's battery life is the original Evo.

In other words, The Amaze's battery life is tied for the worst that I've ever seen from a phone. Any phone.

Custom ROMs should improve things, as will the Anker battery so I hear. I'm going to test these theories.

My goal is to get equivalent usage compared to other Android phones. That will be my standard, not trying to squeeze 24 hours of continuous video watching or something like that. Right now on stock, with my standard usage patterns, it's dead in 8 hours tops. (Again, my other phones would not have been dead)

I'm am with you all. I have my days with this thing including the update to ics. I am ranging from 5 hrs to 15hrs. Yes they are the exact same usage. Minimum 1 hr of net, 20 minutes of you tube and about 6hrs of podcast or music. During this time I have the settings at : screen set as low as possible via widget thing and auto sync. Guess it depends on how the battery feels.


Forgot to add these results are from work. 12 hr shifts. 6 hours I am able to use continuously. The rest of the time its on breaks and sits in my locker.
