Question Battery life?

I have had the HTC One X for one week. The main problem I am having is the very short battery life. It goes from full charge to zero in about 8 hours at night in the sleep/standby mode. During the day with all notifications off, all items in setup off and only making 4 to 5 short calls and using task manager to shut off everything after each call the battery lasts about 5 hours. I have made 3 trips to AT&T store and they say that is normal. I am asking you if in fact it is normal for the HTC? Never had this problem with the iPhone with all notifications, location GPS etc on. Thank you for any help. Gary (k9nut)

No, it's not normal.

I have similar usage and battery is at half after 2 days.

You can try some complete drain full charge cycles to optimise battery.

Shutting stuff off using Task Manager could actually being doing more harm than good as if the OS thinks it needs them, they'll just start up again which eats in to CPU/Battery. It goes against the way Android works and why Task Killers are bad. The apps aren't being held in RAM

It also takes the battery a few charges to settle so if you're not getting what you'd expect, it might just be you need to hold out a bit. My batter definitely performed better after 10-14 days of owning the phone.

That being said, 8 hours is a little low (my first charge lasted 20 hours with 3.5 of screen on time).

Re the charging cycle comment above, don't let the battery die completely, that's not overly healthy for Lithium batteries.

I leave my phone on the charger all night even though I have the green light showing full often before I sleep. It come off the charger at 7:20am as thats the time I leave for work.
I make a few calls throughout the day. Maybe write a few emails and texts. I have email notifications on as well as auto sync etc. I don't generally have WiFi on. I browse a few forums a couple of times a day.
It's now almost 11 hours later and I'm showing 54%.
I Did have a period of a couple of weeks immediately after dropping my phone where I was losing charge rapidly. At least 70% gone in just a few hours even without making calls. On the evening that I was going to back up and factory reset it decided to behave so didn't reset it.
Since then its been back to being more than acceptable as noted above.

The battery goes completely dead every night to the point where the phone will not turn on. I was told by AT&T to not leave the charger on all night. Thank you all for the help. I will try and charge all night and hope that the battery life improves with use.

Also, if possible switch off your phone when charging, this is reduce the charging time considerably, as there will be no discharge from battery and thus it will charge faster.

I have seen this from practical experience.

Try putting the phone into aeroplane mode (which basically shuts down the data connection and phone signal) and see if you still get poor battery life.

If you do I'd suggest downloading BetterBatteryStats from the Play Store and see if anything is draining your battery.

If it doesn't show any app as being the culprit then I'd say the battery looks faulty.

Charged the phone for 9 1/2 hours. Put in airplane mode, location service off, mobile network off, blue tooth off, wi-fi off, sync off, screen set to dim, all notifications off and put in sleep mode. No use of phone or text and in 5 1/2 hours battery was at 11%. AT&T rep still says it is normal. I really think either the phone or battery are bad. Thank you all for the suggestions and help.

After all this, the battery is definitely bad.

You should return the phone.

Agreed, I'd argue with AT&T cause they're wrong, the battery definitely shouldn't be draining that quick.

They should send you a replacement phone.

My battery lasts 2 full days with still some left before I charge it. It definitely should last more than 8 hours.

5 1/2 hours with no use is not normal.
I used to get about that playing screen intense games, but since controlling GPS and mobile internet settings to when I need them, I get a lot longer, and often 12 hours even with using the phone. This phone is proven to last 2+ days with standby mode.
I take it that the screen is turning off in that 5 1/2 hours?

That's a good point, it would be good to see what the screen on and awake time looks like.

K9nut, can you post a picture of it please, it'll look like this:

Wow all these people that are getting 2 or 3 days how are you doing that?

I must admit i dont always have it set to ulimate battery saving settings but im still lucky if i manage to get it to last a day,
I have chargers pretty much everywhere i am though so its never really off charge for more than about 6 hours and never drops below 30%

Think ill have a go 2night at seeing how long i can make mine last and ill post the image

Also, comparing battery times is such a hard thing to do because we all use our phones differently.

The screen and data connection are normally the biggest drainers of battery.

Obviously playing games and using apps or doing all these things at once is going to kill the battery quicker.

The 3200 mAh extended life battery in my Mesmerize usually will last 4 or 5 days before it needs charging.

QFT.

My battery life varies immensely. If I'm at home with a strong signal/WiFi connection, my phone mainly gets used for Gtalk and the odd call every now and then. My wee one has games & stories on there he likes to play to so I can get about a day's worth before I need to charge (and I charge at roughly 30-40%) with a screen on time of circa 2 hours? It really shines when idle, I lose 5-6% during an 7-8hour kip.

At work, it's a totally different story, Cell signal is very strong, but WiFi is terrible (and a bad signal of any kind will hammer the battery) and I tend to hammer it via videos on my break, a bit of gaming, web browsing etc so I tend to find I need to charge at the end of a 12 hour shift. Screen on time is roughly 2-2.5 hours.

If you click on the Screen Time in Power then it'll tell you your screen on time.

Mine is between 13 and 17 and thats with some quite heavy usage, some THD gaming quite alot of browsing, a few few texts and a qouple of calls. Im quite happy with that as i say im never far from a charger so its never really and issue

The only thing that is slightly worrying me at the moment is since my phone locked up a couple of weeks ago the battery seems to be getting alot hotter than it was before.
From what i read on here its not getting stupidly high - the highest ive had it is around 45C whilst web browsing and its normal operating temp is within the 30-40 range,
But when it does get in the mid 40's my charge starts to rocket down alot faster than it used to - it can go down about 20% in 5mins.

Is this unusal? Im more bothered that its only been doing it since the big crash a couple of weeks ago

Did i see someone post a link about a handheld charge storage device that could charge the phone a number of times whilst on the move?

That's very similar to what I use (although mine is Anker) and I get just over 2 charges out of it if I don't use the phone.

This is good advice to speed up charging slightly, the only draw back, apart from the obvious of not receiving incoming phone calls is that any alarm you may have set will not work if your phone is completely switched off.

Another app for saving battery life is Juice Defender. It does stuff like turn off data when your not using it. Helpful little app.

That's not long at all.

I have the One XL and i average 12-15 hours. That being said if I use 4G my power will drain in say 6-8 hours. I must add that in the location I did this test was low coverage.

So 4G or not any phone will discharge faster in low coverage areas die to the phone working harder to ensure you get best performance on the network.

Hope this info helps

Hi guys,

Didn't want to start a new thread about battery when this one is already here...So I currently have the wildfire s and after about a year of use, I now need to charge it every day (Lasts about 24hrs if I use airplane mode at night with moderate to low usage).
So I was thinking of maybe buying the One x as I love HTC but I know that the One x only has a 1800mAh battery whereas the Samsung Galaxy S3 is a bit higer (2100mAh). Since my husband has the Galaxy S3, I know that at the end of the day if it's used moderately, the battery would still be about 30-40% so I'm thinking the One x maybe would be around 15-30% at end of day??.

I'm ok with charging my phone every day since I got used to doing it with the WFS. But it would be a deal breaker if I need to charge it more than once a day. If I use airplane mode at night, would I need to charge more than once in a day?

So I was thinking of maybe buying the One x as I love HTC but I know that the One x only has a 1800mAh battery whereas the Samsung Galaxy S3 is a bit higer (2100mAh). Since my husband has the Galaxy S3, I know that at the end of the day if it's used moderately, the battery would still be about 30-40% so I'm thinking the One x maybe would be around 15-30% at end of day??.

I'm ok with charging my phone every day since I got used to doing it with the WFS. But it would be a deal breaker if I need to charge it more than once a day. If I use airplane mode at night, would I need to charge more than once in a day?
if u only user your phone with moderate use then the one x will last a day easy. its standby time is impressive.

Mine get to about 20 - 30% left after a day with 2 hours ish of gaming/video streaming, light texting and calling and surfing the web.

you're getting a lot better battery life than i am lol...try turning down the brightness and if you don't lock your phone after you're done, turn down the screen timeout time

I get about 8 hours before it hits 20-30%. But that's very heavy usage. Basically being on it most of the day. The screen though takes up 87% battery. Wow. If I moderately use the phone say just picking it up every now and then to text or email I can probably get a few days out of it. But I use it a lot so I find my self charging it at about 6-7 pm.

A lot of the cases I've seen only provide 0.5A so they won't actually charge the device whilst you're using it.

There was a good thread a while back which had a couple of decent charging cases in it, I'll find it so you can see if there are any there that are of any use.

My phone has just made a liar out of me. My battery was drained 70 percent in 7 hours doing nothing. It's never done that before. This bothers me.
