HTC EVO 4G vs Samsung Epic: Battery comparison

When Sprint launched the HTC EVO 4G it was hailed as the best Android smartphone to date, and they were not wrong. However, since its release it has been marred with problems, such as stock issues and battery performance. So will the upcoming Samsung Epic 4G fair any better?

What better handsets to offer a comparison, the Epic forms part of the Galaxy S range and is considered to be like the EVO, but with a slide out keyboard as well as a touchscreen. The new smartphone will have a tough job on its hands, not only will it have to fend of the HTC EVO 4G, but also the BlackBerry Torch as well, which is also a slider touchscreen handset.

Back to the matter at hand, it is no secret that the battery life on the EVO is poor — both have a 1500mAh battery. The screen on the EVO is a TFT and has a Qualcomm Snapdragon processor, whereas the Epic has a super AMOLED display and a Hummingbird processor.

Taking both of these features into account, the Epic should offer more than the 5 hours talktime and 146 hours standby on the EVO. Do you think the battery life on the Samsung Epic 4G will be better than the HTC EVO 4G?
