I'm predicting this battery will give an extra 2 hours of 3G talk time. I think the battery is going to be "siginificantly" improved just like I feel it was last year.

Apple currently lists the 3G talk time being up to 5 hours. That's roughly the same as the Pre, Droid, Nexus One or comparable smartphone. If Apple somehow squeezes out 3 more hours, then I'll be impressed. Probable, but not likely. Any other battery improvement as far and music and video isn't important to me.

A fixed camera lens can't possibly have optical zoom, can it?
That would only be when using the camera, which has always been detrimental to battery use, but you don't spend all your time in the camera app anyway so it doesn't matter. It's not like it's something you can't control, and a higher resolution camera isn't going to affect running it in apps or anything... Flash will barely affect battery at all.

I'm always glad to hear about a stronger battery. As Jellotime said, I think I drain fast because the damn thing is in use almost all of the time. That said, with my current phone I am never far from a charging source. Will be nice not to think about that as much with the new phone.

I wonder why they stopped at a 40% improvement?
If they had not made the phone thinner, they could have increased the size of the battery even more. A 50 or 60% improvement would definitely silence the critics.
I'm not complaining, btw. Just wondering why they made it thinner.
people want it to be thinner rather than wider .
Between battery and size, more people are choosing
size for their reasons not to get the EVO on Sprint.
You also have to take in account everything the phone
can do now and how Apple still managed to increase
the battery life. The display, the new features (HD
video recording), etc..

Oh and, if you're a case type, I'm sure there will be battery extenders that will make it feel like a 3GS in a slim case, so if you don't mind thickness you will have the opportunity to get one of those!
