Thanks for the update

Though I'm not overly concerned with the batt life (my first smart phone was a Pre and THAT thing had to be charged twice a day no matter what), I'm very impressed with what I've read from actual users thus far.

Please keep us poor folk who have to wait longer, updated and informed. It will ease the pain of the delay!

My latest, 2 movies watched (not streamed), Bluetooth use was sending another movie to the phone at the same time, bit of stickman gaming, bit of browsing, push email, few texts.

Heres the problem though...In the U.S. we will be getting the LTE varient! From some reviews (namely PhoneDog) who absolutely love the one, it's been said that it's lacking in the battery dept...Remember these guys are using an unlocked euro varient of the one with an at&t sim card running on HSPA.

I'm interested to see what battery life is right here in the states with an LTE One. I really hope it's no HTC one x or HTC Thunderbolt

Going on where my % was after watching 2 movies i'm pretty sure if i kept watching movies i would have reached around 10 hrs screen on before running out of power. May have been 10hrs screen on = 100% power used but i think that would be pretty good.

Obviously i can't compare to usage in the States, does being on LTE use more power?......we all have LTE "Ones" over here, but not all of us are on LTE tariffs.

I'd take that all day long.It'd be hard to imagine myself using my phone that intensively on any given day.

I just need a ONE to prove it........

Typically, LTE has been a bit of battery hog around here.

Those look like pretty fair results to me, craftycarper!

Understand that LTE may increase drain, but I live in the boonies and don't have coverage at home, so I'm hoping I can turn it off. I travel fairly often, but by car, so LTE will almost be as much a novelty as 3D was with my 3VO. I also get that in that aspect, I'm not a typical user (I'm not very typical anyway), so my input on this matter may be totally superfluous. :-D

If Crafty is on Vodafone then he won't have LTE.

At the moment there is only one LTE network in the UK, EE (Orange/T-Mobile), with limited coverage and absurd tariffs. General roll-out us scheduled for later this year. So while UK handsets are LTE capable very few will have LTE contracts just now.

As said, i'm on Voda, so no, i believe the time frame is sometime in the summer (the way spring is going we ain't gonna get no summer!)

No coverage where i am at the moment on EE, and also the prices!!...i could probably manage on 500mb (31.....but 239.99 for the One) but i know the wife would choke on her own burnt cooking if i told her i was spending that upfront on a phone!

Here's my phone battery after one full day. I wish I could work out what is keeping my phone awake for seven hours though! Going into the App Usage section at the bottom gives me three hours awake for NetworkLocationLocator so maybe on the next battery cycle I will switch it off. Google Now was never activated and is definitely off. Blinkfeed is empty. Most of my wakelocks seem to be from Google Services though.

I have four email addresses pushing to the phone but Sunday is usually quiet so I didn't receive many emails at all. Very odd.

Still, the battery is on a par with my other phones but I get the feeling that if I could figure out those thing holding my phone awake, I could wring even more time out of this phone.

I clicked the App Usage right arrow and I believe it takes me to the same screen (I could be wrong though). Number of times waking the device was over 14,000 I think.

I've let the phone run out completely and it's switched off on the charger at the moment. I'll come back to it in a couple of hours and switch it on then.

I'm not overly fussed. It looks like the phone will last a day and that was only the first complete charge.; I expect to get better results from subsequent charges I'd rather get my held awake time down though so I get even more life out of the battery.

Ah, yeah. Same thing.

If it turns into a problem that GSAM Battery Monitor doesn't provide enough info on, BetterBatteryStats has more.

Sounds like you have your arms around it though.

The Held Awake takes only 0.2% of the battery usage, so don't waste your time on it.

That being the case, I have left Location services on and will see how the second charge performs.

Interestingly, my battery didn't reach 100% when charged, it stopped at 99% and refused to go higher. Usual?

Yeah, especially when new. It happens from time to time on my other phones. Not a brand or model phenomenon.

By the way, if you don't use NFC, try turning that radio off.

Great, thanks. My S2 was second hand when I got it and didn't suffer that.

When you say 'turn the radio off', do you mean for me to put it into Airplane mode please? Sorry for the noob question, i'm still not used to shiny Android phones, my battered S2 was basically just used and abused without me going into this level of detail.

Just shoot me. Turning the NFC radio on/off is a setting that they changed with Jellybean, you may not be able to. I am on custom rom, keep forgetting about that. Sorry to pop off without thinking.

Third day of ownership and only on second full charge. I took it off charge yesterday, about 19.5 hours ago, and the phone still has 70% battery left! This is astonishing to me; even better than my iPhone with virtually the same usage (running both side by side for comparisons, iPhone sitting at 59%). I only have just over an hour of screen on admittedly, but still the standby time is exceptional. Yesterday/today are light use days but I did spend a lot of yesterday somewhere without wifi and received and replied to about twenty emails and about fifteen SMS messages. No phone calls.

Yep! Definitely looks promising. Certainly better than a Pre! Which, BTW, my wife is now rocking since she decided to work on our pool with her 3VO in her pocket! Her 3VO is now dis-assembled and taking a rice bath. On a positive note, her new digitizer came in yesterday and if I can't get her 3VO working, I'LL have a new digitizer! (Sorry for the OT).

I forgot how it feels to really Rock an LTE phone full time so yesterday I solely used my iphone 5 for the whole entire day without using my nexus 4 at all. Which will have to do anyway because I'm selling my nexus 4 to make room for the One or the X phone as my daily driver...most likely the one until the X phone comes out. We'll see! Anyway back to batteries...right now I have 32% on my iphone 5 with the last charge 21hrs ago. That's with some pretty steady usage yesterday and this morning, if the One can get anywhere near that I would do cartwheels as that would be awesome!

GSMArena have conducted and completed their battery test on the HTC One. Makes for very interesting reading!

If you're a power-heavy user, you will be disappointed. For the average normal user, it's great! Does me just fine

You *will* be disappointed if you are a heavy user? Seems that on their continuous usage tests it matched anything else (apart from the Maxx, of course). They claim it's the standby was "weak", if you can call 48 hours including 2 hours of calls and 4 hours screen on "weak", so surely the heavy user is least worried?

But the devil is in the details. I know that GSMArena test screen-on usage at a fixed % brightness, so phones with brighter screens are at a disadvantage (to contrast, anandtech set to 200 nits for their tests, so same light output for all devices). I don't know what they let synch in the background for their standby tests - the safest would be to either have standard apps, accounts and settings or turn everything off, but I don't know whether they try to standardise or if so how hard they try.

So I'd say read a range of tests, try to work out what they test, and look at the range of results. And perhaps more usefully, see what the real experiences of people who own the devices are.

Interesting reading. Thanks for posting that up. Fortunately for me I am a low to moderate user and I am finding the battery life to be amazing. I'll post up a screenshot tomorrow when the battery is low.

I took the phone off charge a day and a half ago and it still has 36% battery left with 2h 40m screen on. Only one very short phone call but loads of emails and texts and a couple of short YouTube videos (maybe fifteen minutes total). I don't game on the phone at all. This is far above what I expected from this phone and really urinates all over my iPhone 5 battery life. Absolutely amazing battery life for me!

I agree whole-heartedly. Outside the MAXX, it rivals all the other flagships, and I don's see where you can complain a whole lot about that! Or at least I won't!

And how do you find it for performance as a user?

On topic because I'm asking for your view - does that battery life come at the expense of your using experience compared to the iP5?

Took phone off charge 7am yesterday morning & still have 24% left! 35 hours so far, This makes my rooted S2 look pathetic.

I have had few phone calls, plenty of texts & emails. Blink feed on(which I surprisingly like, and would love with more topics), internet & loads of playing around as new phone. I am so surprised, battery life was suppose to be a negative, if it stays like this I'll be more than happy!

Not even remotely, my friend. I haven't turned off location services and I run pretty much the same apps on this as I do on the iPhone 5 and it is faster to open apps and massively faster when it comes to downloading emails (especially with attachments) and opening pictures or large files. I made sure to use the phone in the same way I used the iPhone so I could get my own personal comparison of battery life based on my normal phone use habits. I honestly didn't think it would be as good as the iPhone; I just naturally assumed the battery life would be worse. It isn't, it's way better and i'm blown away by it.

Ok, I bought a 3500MaH battery for my Evo 2 years ago, and it used to last me a little over a day on a charge, now I can't get 8 hours out of it, and it goes from 100 to 85% in the first 10 or so minutes of taking it off a charge, I expect this to happen to this battery as well. I mean.. it is 2 years later haha but it is aggrivating when I have to use my phone daily..and it only charges when it feels like it.


Now with the batteries of the HTC One.. do you all recommend running it to 0% a few times when I first get the phone? Should I run the battery all the way down out of the box before charging it?

Definitely not.

These are the newer lithium polymer batteries.

Do nothing to condition them or break them in.

Calibration happens naturally.

Forcing a battery to zero charge (your phone will shut down before that) isn't the best for battery life, neither is high temperature operation.

Just use it and don't care.

Wow, I'm impressed with the numbers you guys are posting. I'm using a RAZR M currently, and I thought that had good battery life. This alleviates my main concern of the HTC ONE. Now only if Verizon will let the HTC ONE be on it's network unmolested.

I want this phone more and more now, but I really should wait to see what Motorola comes up with this year.

Just one more screenshot from me then i'll stop as I think you get the general idea on my battery life from the screenshots I have been posting up. It's going on charge now as I need the phone alive and I don't want to charge it up later on when I am out.



No power saving mode used. Location services on. Phone goes into silent mode between midnight and 8am. Only one very quick phone call but shedloads of texts and emails received and replied to. I'm now on my third day on the same charge and I am using my phone in exactly the same way I used my iPhone, which would last a day and a half.

Being that you've all been so nice, here's another one.

In flagrant disregard for my earlier post, I didn't charge my phone before I went out and decided to take my phone juice pack with me and see how long the phone went without charging instead. I was on wifi most of the day but I still didn't have power saver on. THREE DAYS! This is unheard of for me. Absolutely unheard of.

This is great information . I am new to android and sealed batteries. What happens when the battery wears down and no longer takes a charge? I have read that the iPhone battery which is non removable can be replaced by the user fairly easily. Will it be the same for the One or does the phone need to be brought in for service? Thanks in advance

Unless you severely abuse your battery, or you get a defective one, you will not need to replace it. With battery tech today, these batteries are outlasting the phones, especially if not abused.
My wife's OG Droid is still running it's OG battery quite well. While I'm sure it doesn't get quite the same life it did when it was new, it is still quite good for its age.
All this being said, you would likely need to send it in or have a pro do the replacing if it did get to that point. The One will be a tough nut to crack without actually doing damage. Just look at the tight design and aluminum build.

Check this article/website out to learn more about the batteries we use.

Well, AT&T shipped mine on so it was dead when I got it.
It took quite a bit of time to charge.
Once charged it seems to be lasting me >= 12 hours with moderate/heavy use.

Mine dies pretty fast with low usage. Played a game for about 30 minutes and the battery drained 20% and about 20% overnight. I'm quickly regretting this buy solely on battery life. How long do you think you had yours charging?

Yours is the 1st report of sub-par battery life here in the forum.

Unless someone here finds a culprit/solution before the end of the day,I'd return it for a replacement.

Yeah I feel really bad about that, everyone is having decent battery life and it seems as if I'm stuck in the back ranting. If it weren't for the battery life and the weather app (not that big of a deal) I'd have fallen in love with this phone. Do you think I should overcharge the phone a bit or just give it a few more cycles?

And I don't know if I can return it, I don't think it falls under the warranty and HTC would probably blame me anyways. Thank you for the warm welcome.

If it's your first day and first charge, I wouldn't put a lot of faith in the battery stats, the battery is new, nothing's had a chance to calibrate.

GSAM Battery Monitor, free, can help show what's really eating power. If you're going in and out of service in areas where you expect a stable signal, definitely take it back. Nothing eats power like a bad signal situation.

If it's not that and it doesn't improve after a day or two, then looking at a replacement makes more sense.

Meanwhile, GSAM can help see if you have some app or setup going nuts.

I've had that with Google sync on a new phone (brand doesn't matter, can hit anyone). If you see the two circular arrows chasing each other at the top (sync icon) not going away, then settings, Accounts and sync, turn off auto sync, cycle power on the phone, then turn sync back on. That power-killer is a Google sync error.

Hope this helps, welcome to the forums!

I had it charging for 4 maybe 5 hours.
There is another factor .. something called... ICantKeepMyHandOffThisCoolPhone

Are you using it on LTE?
What's your signal reporting in about -> network?

If you look in battery history... the line that says "mobile network signal"
is that indicating a low signal?
Green is good... red is bad.
What does yours look like?

To add to the suggestions mentioned above,call your carrier to ensure that there aren't network/tower issues which could be affecting your connectivity.

On the return policy,if you continue to experience charging/battery life issues,this is a legitimate claim for warranty service.

Please keep us posted.

Are you using it on LTE?
What's your signal reporting in about -> network?

If you look in battery history... the line that says "mobile network signal"
is that indicating a low signal?
Green is good... red is bad.
What does yours look like?

On the return policy,if you continue to experience charging/battery life issues,this is a legitimate claim for warranty service.

Thank you for the replies. I live in NYC so signal isn't a problem in a big city like this, it is a pretty straight dark green line with only slight points where it goes light green and usually on 4G LTE. AT&T treats me good there. Well my phone lost 4% battery while I took an (accidental) 3 hour nap, I don't know if this is normal and I had GSam running. By the way this is my first android phone so maybe the iPhone spoiled me with battery life.
