Maybe the 2300 mAh with this setup will perform similarly. Those of us grown accustomed to and ok with 16 hours/day or so won't care.
But even that performance isn't enough for some folks. Stick in 3100 mAh and I doubt you'd get more buyers - a day is a day, and that's all I've ever asked for within a reasonable budget.
It's the non-removable battery that's making it a non-starter for many. People losing juice roaming with crappy signals (either kind) and doing a lot of talking for work - just need more.
In my opinion.
PS - bet ya the Sprint version won't be standard.
Good point on the battery life,it's not the capacity, it's the run time. Admittedly, I get caught up in the battery size, which is only one factor in run time.
Just as you, if I can make it from my out-the-door time to well after a long day @ work, etc...., that's all I need/expect for run time.
As long as we're on the subject, I just gotta mention that I'm currently rockin' a ZeroLemon 6300 mAh battery on my SGS III, more than enough juice to make it through a day
Nice to have that option, but, I'd be willing to try the HTC ONE if it can run 12-16 hrs., the specs on this phone are making me seriously consider switching up, lots to like here.........
