When I first started using a smartphone, I was a little surprised at how short the battery life was compared to my feature phone. Moving from an iPhone to the HTC EVO was even more of a surprise. I could usually get two days out of my iPhone 3G before needing a recharge, but when I first got my HTC EVO, I couldn’t even make it through a full day before needing some more juice.
Thankfully, there are some tips straight from HTC on how to improve your HTC battery life. After following these steps myself, I went from a dead phone at lunch to an EVO that lasted me until the evening on most days. Of course, it depends also on how much and in what ways I’m using it.
How to Improve Your HTC Battery Life
Anyway, here are the steps:
- Turn your device ON and charge the device for 8 hours or more
- Unplug the device, turn the phone OFF, and charge for 1 hour
- Unplug the device, turn the phone ON, wait 2 minutes, turn the phone OFF, and charge for another hour
