Take this analogy into consideration:

My Athlon 1.4 Ghz used 2-3x more power than my Athlon 64 X2 4400+ @ 2.4Ghz. My new processor also runs at around 30 degrees Celcius, whereas my old chip ran at 70 or higher, even with aftermarket cooling.

Point is, just because newer chips are faster, doesn't mean they should use more juice. The opposite should be true, and IS for most devices.

HTC just needs to fix the radio. Simple as that.
That's an excellent point, and I think most users are forgetting about that. With the rate at which technology moves, there is no reason why a faster processor shouldn't draw far less power in 5 years.

At this point, it's clearly obvious that HTC screwed up on the the radio/power draw.

So that leads to two questions:

1) CAN they fix it?

and

2) WILL they fix it?

I'm pretty sure we know the answers already...

1. Yes
2. Probably not. But then again, they do manage to push a few updates out for each device. Hopefully one of them will be for the TP's radio.
