YMMV, there's limitless variables that contribute to battery life.

With my current set-up/location/available networks/WI-FI on a typical day, I can get up to 12-16 hrs.

Connectivity strength & screen-on time (& brightness) are your biggest factors in determining battery life.

BLUETOOTH & streaming are the X factors for my variables in battery life.

If I listen to streaming music all day @ work w/BLUETOOTH, I'm looking to plug-in after 10-11 hrs.

Reason I mention this example is if you're not doing anything like this, or, a lot of on-screen time, you've got a rogue app that is eating battery.

I'd begin by simply re-booting your phone & see if battery life doesn't improve.

If that doesn't do it, this entire thread has a lot of information/hints/tips on increasing battery life w/o sacrificing performance.

This alone will eat battery like yours truly @ an AYCE Buffet............

Hopefully,there are other things you find that will increase battery life.

A co-worker of mine was wondering why battery life was so awful & mine was stellar.

Set aside that his phone is a SAMSUNG GALAXY S2 (EPIC 4G TOUCH),he finally let me take a look @ his settings.

He wasn't utilizing 3G or 4G WIMAX.Once enabled,he's now making it to the 7-8 hr point before popping-in another battery.

I'd start from the general phone settings & look @each & every available option.

Then,go to your app drawer & look @ each apps own settings.You may be able to increase battery life w/o uninstalling any of your favorite applications,or,sacrificing performance/convenience.

One tip that seems to have a two-fold effect of better performance/battery life:

Disable the system apps that you do not use.No harm in disabling,as you can always re-enable if you begin to experience otherwise unexplained issues.

Some are more straightforward as to what they do than others,disable those first (ex:FACEBOOK),has no effect on other apps if you do not use FB,safe to disable.

Please keep us posted on your progress/results.

Try adding a battery monitoring app (GSam is popular round here) so you can get more information on how the power is being used, e.g. some particular wakelock.

@Zer0BurnX: I'm not aware of any such setting, and the feature is probably a bit too device-specific for Tasker to know about it (I had a quick look and couldn't see it anyway).

Default battery screen time

I was wondering what the average screentime should be for HTC one. Last time I checked, I got 3.5 hours screentime by the 16% left on battery.

That's like asking how long a person's legs should be. It depends on the temperature, what you have enabled, the signal strength of the various radio signals, which apps are running, etc., etc.

Not to mention screen brightness and standby time. I've seen almost a factor of 3 range in screen on time with my phone depending on usage, and that's the same device.

Battery is driving me nuts on this phone at the moment, went from getting nearly 2 days out of it, now lucky to get 10hrs.. I've been told from some snotty cow from my carrier that 10hrs is perfectly acceptable and could be made better by doing a factory reset, using the power saver and turning down the brightness. I informed her I may as well pull out my old Nokia 3310 as I've already done those things, now I've been given the dreaded number to contact HTC to send it in for repair

I meant what the average should be under normal circumstances. I just want to know the range should be for light use, medium use, and heavy use.

For example. Is it 1-2 hours for heavy? Or 18-24 hours for heavy usage?

With heavy usage (screen on non stop while playing games or browsing the Internet on 3G/4G) battery life for me is around 3 hours with maximum brightness.

Thanks I see. I just uploaded images of my battery life to my previous post. Does it look normal? When I have screen on during the day, it was only for texting and browsing the internet and facebook.

I have a strange problem with my HTC One.

Until last night, I was getting even 2 days of battery life if my screen was off.Last night, I fully charged my phone (100 %) and then went to sleep.When I woke up my phone was at 50 %, and untl 4 pm it was almost empty so I had to charge it again.The screen was off almost all the time, because I don't really use the phone in weekends since I'm home.

I was normally loosing max. 5-10 % of the battery over the night, so why the big change to 50-55 % ? Not to mention that since my phone fully charged like 2 hours ago, I lost almost 20 % of battery life, and the screen was off all this time.

I don't remember changing any settings so I don't understand what the hell happened.Why I suddenly loose so much battery ? And yes, I rebooted the phone twice.

Must be an app gone crazy. Did you installed something new? Something keeps your phone from going to deep sleep. Check your wakelocks.

Also, do the ten seconds hold on the power button to do a hardware reset - you won't lose any data.

If it's not a runaway app or service, it could be something stuck in silicon and that will clear it.

Default HTC One not charging

Hey

So there was a 'USB Power Surge' warning on my computer with the HTC One connected, and at the same time the One asked me to to connect it to a support adapter. The wire I was using was the the one the mobile was shipped with. The wire had gotten really hot when I unplugged it.

Following this, the mobile has not charged at all. I tried an USB adapter, and a travel charger.
Is there anything other than visiting the service centre that can be done?

Edit: The computer isn't recognising it as a USB device either. Is it fried?

try an different computer.
try to connect to AC power
use yet another usb cable

do you have a battery app on the phone? see if it shows any battery charge activity

what OS version are you running?

is it rooted?

what carrier?

how long have you had the phone? under the stores grace (return) period?

worse case, factory reset.

if not coming back, phone may be damaged beyond these steps and repair at htc is needed.

Tried all three, to no avail. No battery charge activity on the battery monitoring app I use. I'm using 4.2.2. Rooted, but running the original OS only. I've had it for less than a month. I've already tried a factory reset, though I didn't reset all the apps.

Last chance is a hardware reset - hold the power button for 10 seconds until the phone restarts.

Was it plugged in when you did it?

If so, try it without, sorry for not being clear.

If it wasn't plugged in and you got that message, it's service center time.

Okay, so the hardware reset just got me a 'Power Surge' option again, for a second. Then it went back to being non-responsive.


It wasn't plugged in when I reset it, but it was plugged in when the cimputer surge - I was trying to charge it again.

I'm off to the service centre in the morning. Do you think they'll be able to fix it? I have my doubts. And I'm not sure if I'll be able to get a replacement.

Default Phone Powering off at 5%

Does anyone else's phone power off when it reaches 5% charge? Is there anyway to fix this, in order to use until 1% like other Android phones?

That's a calibration issue. The phone isn't shutting off early, but the meter is telling you that you have more left than you really have.

It's also a lot more common across different phones than you think.

In my experience the worst cases usually recalibrate after the shutdown. There are recipes for recalibration, but I don't have the confidence in them to suggest one, so will leave that to someone else.

I know from experience that my meter is calibrated OK, but for the good of the battery I try never to let it run down that low anyway.

Is it normal to drop 16% in 3 hours while the phone is idle?

The radio used 5% in this time while WiFi active (but not connected) used 6%.

I unplugged at 6am @ full charge, set phone down and didn't touch it till 9 and it was at 84%

Hoping to get this resolved as before the 4.3 update I seemed to be getting much better life.

I have gsam (that's where the stats above came from) however I'm not sure what to look for or where to look.

That's not normal. I've had a low usage day today, and have dropped 15% in 9 hours with 55 minutes screen on.

If you don't already have one, get a battery monitor (GSam, BetterBatteryStats, Wakelock Detector) and find out what's really using it. I'd look in particular for anything that's stopping the phone from sleeping.

Default Battery suddenly drain issue

Guys please help if can I have already been using my phone for few months already and I don't play games or listen to music much with it and also I doesn't on my 3G often as well. So usually everyday I'll charge my phone when I'm in my room or when I got back to my room and then until night time when I sleep it'll be fully charged, then i unplug it and goes to sleep. The next day i Check the phone it still has 80~9x% of battery left, but last 2 days until now, my battery suddenly drains very fast, like yesterday my battery life suddenly became 4x% when I woke up, and I did the same thing the day before! fully charged then unplug it before sleep. Today the same thing happened! these 2 days I've only installed 1 app which is whatsapp+ so I thought that's the problem, so I uninstalled it and then install back the original whatsapp but still the battery drains very fast! I've also updated all the app in my phone through play store during these 2 days I didn't change anything and wifi and all other battery draining app is closed before I go to sleep. So was wondering what just happened to my phone?? (

Can you check the power settings of the phone and probably see what apps are being power hogers. Also let it drain down until the phone is completely dead and then charge it (while powdered off) until 100% and then see what happens

Click on app usage. When it gives you a list of power used by app, the title at the top is a drop down menu. Tap it and look at "time held awake" in particular.

I have something odd that happens from time to time. I have a message on the top of the phone stating battery hot or something similar as it happens quickly.The odd thing is nothing is running and when I check battery temp it says 83 degrees on the battery monitor. Not rooted. Latest updates installed and it did this before the os update as well.I'm not concerned but it seems to be misinformation. Has anyone else seen this?

EDIT: Yes, GSam battery monitor. Thank you

Are you running a battery monitor app? Some of those can produce high temperature warnings, and I've heard other reports of these going off spuriously, and seen it myself.

The weirdest thing happened today.. I'm on 4.3 stock and after my HTC One charged to 100%, I unlocked the screen, the battery % fell down to 98%. Wait like 20 seconds, then another 2%, another 2%, and from then on the battery acts like normal, not dropping 2% like it just did. What in the?! I have done about three factory resets and my battery life still sucks. I have no apps causing it. Lookout was eating a lot of my % up, but I deleted it. This all started happening after I updated to 4.3. Any suggestions?

I think that after the update the best thing is to drain down the battery till it's dead, then charge it up while phone is powered off for the first charge. I've achieved always best results doing this with already several HTC phones. I remember experiencing this drop in battery after updates on my Evo OG, Evo 4G & 3D...

Sweet, thanks for the tip. I'll definitely try that.

Default Battery Drain

Hey Everybody !

I have a silver HTC One 32gb which is unlocked and I am from the UK. I have to say ever since I received the Android 4.2 update (A while ago) my battery life has gone down. Before I would go to sleep with 100% and on a good night with nothing on the multi tasking bar, I would wake up to 96 - 99% sometimes still 100% but after the update it goes down to 90%. I remember before the update I could check my phone a few times before it drops just 1% and now it goes to quickly. I attributed it to me accidentally taking the "Power Saver" mode off but ever since its switched on again, the story is the still the same. I am expecting Android 4.3 update soon and 4.4 KitKat a while from now but can someone help ?!

Thanks

I'm having the same issue, for the last couple of days my battery life has been pretty terrible. I'm going to try to factory reset and wipe all the junk off the phone to see if that helps any.
