i've been reading this thread as it goes along, £207 is an awful lot of phone for a reasonable price, trouble is reports of terrible battery life rather put you off when you don't have much disposable income.

excellent deal, mind.

From what I've read, the battery is only terrible if you're taking 3D photos or using the 3D a lot, the battery is pretty much on par with the Sensation otherwise. A fine deal either way!

Most modern smartphones have crap battery life these days sadly. My Galaxy S needs charging daily, and for all the hype the screen received, it's the largest contributing factor to its woes, even on minimum brightness.

ah is that true? i've seen the 3d drains battery but putting it on par with the sensation is good news.

i'm mostly blind in one eye so 3d is useless for me anyway.

I'm basing the "equivalent to the Sensation" on these three critic reviews:

Gadget Review: Battery life on 3G lasts a solid day and a half under regular use, though it’ll go on for a day under heavy stress.
Engadget: After topping off the EVO 3D, it only took 14 hours and 44 minutes to drain the beefy 1730mAh battery down to 7%. We barely used the handset during that time [Blizzard7 - Sounds like a pretty normal day to me!] -- we made a 15-minute call and slept 6 hours. The rest of it was spent taking a half-dozen pictures, and occasionally checking three email accounts plus one Twitter account with all the radios enabled (save for Bluetooth).
TechRadar:The battery life for most activities (ie not using 3D) is much greater – up to 14 hours for making a few calls, checking email, and occasionally playing a short video.

Don't see a point to bother about battery life. I would understand your concern, if you would have an option here. It's either Evo 3D or no phone at all.

Xperia Arc S would have better battery life than Evo. My Play runs for 3 days with GMail + Good always on, about 10 min of talking a day and a moderate Whatsup messaging. Wifi off , 3G only. However, Evo is twice as good as Arc. So unless you desperately need a phone that would last for a few days on single charge Evo is your only reasonable option.

My assumption is that Evo has same screen technology as Desire HD ( I could be wrong here, as I never had two phones next to each other ). My DHD with Revolution ROM easily last for 2 days, if I keep screen off. Turning screen on absolutely decimates battery. So standby (synching Gmail and Good), talking on the phone (screen is off) works for two days. Texting takes a heavy toll, but still last a day. While reading news or browsing internet last less than a day. DHD has 1230mAh battery.

well not entirely true since i do have a phone. i don't /need/ a new one but this was only meant to be a temp one after my X10 died, and i've now had it longer than i had my X10. heh.
