My photon is really old now and I was wondering if I should go for HTC One/GS4/iPhone5, and I love what HTC has done with this new phone... HTC One has beautiful metallic design which rivals iPhone 5 and an OS I love. Now if only I can get some accurate battery test results for the phone.
I think they try their best, but testing is something that requires training, it's an engineering discipline.
I find that the better assessments are done by AnandTech. Not perfect, but excellent and much more thorough.
The real assessments will come from us users - we don't mess around and by pooling our results, get the most accurate picture of battery use.
That means you'll need to wait to see user results, or wait for AnandTech to give better indications.
This new model has more to power than my phone, but it also has a bigger battery, so I'm not comfortable making numerical predictions without more facts.
Although - we might look up Engadget's battery review of my phone, compare results, and maybe get a ballpark for how close they got before. Hmmm...
