    Plus most likely if you root and switch roms the LTE wont work. Cmod just finally got wimax working on evo/epic/sprint and I'd guess LTE might be different?

    It is a very reasonable complaint. Why put a 1400mAh battery in the first 4G phone for Verizon? With the other awesome specs, the battery is just a horrible thing to add to the list. They should have just left it off the spec sheet.

    I'm pretty sure my D2 came with a 1350mAh. With the bionic coming with a 1950mAh, I'm really confused as to why they decided on 1400mAh.

    My d1s battery was only lasting about 10 hours or so so I ordered a thundeerbolt. Then the rep at verizon told me to install juice defender and now my d1 lasts 2 days but I'm still going to the thunderbolt Ill just install juice defender there also and hopefully get a full day out of it anyway.

    this guy is a FOOL. use your phone less??? what a idiotic thing to say. after paying high costs for a phone and data plan i have to ration my usage??? YOU shut up. dont like the thread? DONT READ IT!!!


    i agree that if they have the tech for bigger batteries they should probably use it. my d1 is mah1350, and after a year and a half they can only put in a mah1400 in there flagship phone that they know to have complaints with similar models?? {evo 4g}

    I could see if these phones were getting okay battery life but HTC phones are notorious for bad battery life. Any other phone, and yes maybe your expectations with the amount of usage are unreal but seriously, HTC needs to do better. I understand if you use your phone a lot it will need to be charged which is why I have two batteries and always have a charger, but I've had an HTC phone before and the battery life was worse than my Droid.

    My point is either dont get the phone, learn how to extend your battery life through usage, or stop complaining. You as the consumer have the liberty of choice to either read up about a phone from reviews and get it or not. You make the decision of buying it.

    A fool? Yes. An idiot? Probably. An angry forumer who knows what kind of hoops manufacturers have to go through to balance price, performance, demand, and competitiveness? Definitely.

    I can see the research the phone part. That's why I don't currently own an HTC phone. I researched and saw they had bad battery life.

    Pretty much any phone is $600 or more off contract.... that's how they pull people into contracts, either pay an arm and a leg fora phone or sign a contract to stay with them for 2 years.... if your like me then don't really think twice about a vzw contract. My family has been with them since they bought Cellular One.

    There are options. Buy an extended battery (I'll most likely be getting a Seidio). Use various battery saving techniques (google them). Dim your screen. Get an app that helps save battery.

    However, I don't know why HTC did not put a bigger battery in this phone. Especially since the EVO and Inc were notorious for having bad battery life, and that was the number one complaint of owners or why people chose to get something else. 1400mAh sounds pretty small for a flagship beast such as this. The second generation snapdragon processor and smaller die (reduced from 65nm to 45nm) are supposed to help, but is it that hard to put a little bit bigger one in there? It can't cost all that much more to have a slightly bigger one. Even if it makes the phone just a little thicker, it is worth it to get one full day's use out of a phone. They could have just as easily gone with a 1600, although I would have like to see more like a 2000.

    There will be third party batteries available. I wouldn't be overly concerned about it.

    Imagine if they invested in buying or having manufactured a larger battery into the phone.

    The thing is already reportedly $730
