Notsure Battery

Battery isn't great so far but I did only get the phone yesterday. I gave it a full charge, took about 2 hours and started light use; battery was dead at midnight.

Charged it overnight and used it this morning to send 20 texts, 7 whatsapp texts and viewed 5 emails without downloads but no calls and battery is now at 85%.

Have you tried playing around the battery saving options in the settings? I was expecting the battery to have a battle with a higher performanced phone. Guess the incremental battery vs cpu speed makes it a balance with what we get in the One X.

I haven't touched the settings yet; I thought I would run it for a few days first as sometimes a number of charge cycles can help. It's now been running just over 12 hours with light use and I am showing 22%. I had hoped for 16 hours with average use but maybe not

I took my one X plus off the charger at 9am on Friday morning and the battery was completly empty by 1am on Sunday so 41 hours with medium use. I'm quite happy as the battery on the sensation I had before never lasted as long as that.

Edit: currently on my 4 day on the same charge. Pretty impressed with the battery life.

Notsure

I'm struggling to understand what heavy and light use is to some people with these battery complaints. First day I got the phone I charged it fully for 12,hours. Then through out the day I watched avatar in high definition, listened to music, watched some you tube videos, repeatably surfed the web and made calls and texts as usual. I considered this heavy use and the phone still lasted 1day 14hours with power save on before if reached its last dregs and then put it on charge again.

what exactly are people doing on there phone for it to only last 10-12 hours before it dies?

Had mine a couple of weeks now. Find the battery lasts much better than my desire used to.

Default Not impressed by battery life

Granted I've only had it a day. Yesterday doesn't count because all the set up downloaded and just the mere fact I had it on so much...I understand.

My plan is to run it today as I do my other phone. I charged it last night and unplugged it at 7am moderately used it with emails, download apps, texts, and various other things. Now it's 3.5 hours later it's down to 68%, my old phone (a 4S) would be at 90 to 95% at this point. I fear if I make a call or stream something, I'll drain the battery in an hour. At this rate I think I'll be on the charger by 8pm tonight.

So I'm not new to Android, I used them during Cupcake, Froyo and Eclair. I'm not necessarily devoted to either platform per se, I think both have their goods and bads, but battery life is my biggest concern with any phone or platform.

Are my expectations to high to have the battery last a full day as I used my old phone without charging (as my old phone could easily do)? I love this phone and hope the battery life miraculously improves in the next few days. I want to keep this but charging multiple times a day when I'm not a power user is not in my DNA.

Thanks

*Disclaimer-I know I have not quanitified my usage, or what Light, medium or heavy is. This is purely the battery performance of my 4s to the 1X+ which I didn't expect to be the same, but I did not expect it to be over half as bad.

This phone is much better than my previous One X phone. The battery still needs to be charged at the end of my days, but it's a visible improvement. I found that having a car charger works wonders in my life.

Anyone tried out the power saving option, and if it works?

Do you know how much Display time your getting? A bit fustrated with HTC that they would take that option out, also the USB mass storage as well.

My personal take on the battery is that you should leave it in power saver mode if you're looking for long-term use. From my understanding, it limits the phone to only one core and turns off data connection when screen is off.

Limiting yourself to one core might sound unappealing to some (after all, the quad-core was a big selling point), but it's not that bad when you consider that each core is offering 1.7ghz. This is more than enough power for most of the things you'll be doing on your phone. Playing a game that needs more juice? Turn off power saver mode for your game session, then back on when done.
