I have an HTC HD7 on Canada's Bell Mobility and I recently updated to 8773 and my phone gets INCREDIBLE standby time now. 20 hours from fully charged used to put me on battery saver, if I even made it that long without having to seek out an outlet to charge. Now, I still haven't even cracked the 70s at that point! While I can't verify it just yet, it seems to even last longer when I'm doing high-drain tasks like surfing the web or playing a game. I feel like I could confidently get 2 days on a charge now, where before I wasn't confident enough to go out after work without a quick charge. Anybody else rocking Tango and notice a battery improvement?

I am not saying it's not possible that Tango changed something, and you obviously have the facts, but nothing in the update was related to battery performance. Did HTC push out firmware with Tango? Did your radio get an update? Did they put up a new tower down the block?
My L900 battery appears to be about the same post Tango.

It's possible I received some firmware that actually caused the improvement... Difficult to say as I don't know offhand what version it was before. As far as other changes, no. No new apps, haven't deleted any old ones or made any usage changes. I had assumed it was due to Tangos lower RAM footprint... If it was firmware I have to wonder why HTC dragged their feet so long only to deal with it now. I've received 6 OS updates in the 13 months I've had this phone, and I still don't have the firmware to enable tethering. Not to mention all the original Titan owners that haven't received much needed firmware for the call volume issues etc.
