    Is it me or does the battery suck?

    I love this phone but whats up with this horrid battery life after the update?
    As soon as i unplug it the battery drops to 97%
    last night i charged it, unplugged it and just uploaded some pictures to facebook and it sat on my desk for a few hours and when i pick it back up its at 35%??
    i even adjusted the settings to try to save as much juice as possable!
    It wasnt like this before the update............

    The 97% isn't uncommon b/c HTC typically doesn't allow it to truly charge to 100% (wears on battery life cycles) - so at times there will be a real quick drop initially.

    The other sounds like something was stuck running or downloading or something... it's not normally THAT bad.

    If you don't mind reloading all your stuff a factory reset is always a valid option. It can be frustrating tho.

    This is correct for two reasons. First with Lithium Ion Polymer batteries, they can not be continuously trickle charged like older Nickel Metal Hydride or Nickel Cadmium batteries or they could become unstable. So once the battery reaches "full" (which as jntdroid pointed out isn't even the actual capacity of the battery but more likely only 85% to 90% of rated capacity to extend lifespan), at 100%, the charging shuts down and the battery begins to lose charge naturally. By the time you unplug it, there could have been as much as 10% of the charge drained before it would resume charge to replenish again.

    So when you pick it up and it says anything from 90% to 100% after a full charge, there is nothing wrong with it and the battery and charger are functioning normally.
