    HTC: Past, Present & Battery Future?

    After all the talk about Sense 4.0, the ONE line and the third iteration of the EVO, HTC has been on my mind and I need to make sense of it

    I agree with most of your points. In the past, the problem with HTC's poor battery life could be solved easily by using extra batteries because batteries were user-replaceable. With the One series, this is no longer an option and the battery life is indeed quite bad. Personally, I am not sure why HTC cannot put a big battery like Motorola, but I guess they do not know how. Nevertheless, we should wait until the SGS 3 is announced to tell whether this year is a good or bad year for HTC. Currently, the One X is the best Android phone that anyone can get.

    Based off all the reviews I've read, it looks like it is the best android and maybe even the best phone out period at this time. Being in the U.S., getting my hands on one is slim. Lucky for me my cousin, who has been a big HTC supporter since the WinMo days, ordered one which should be shipping to him sometime this week. I can't lie I'm jealous that everywhere, but the U.S. get the phones and updates faster then over here. I understand why, but damn is it annoying. You are right the year is a long way from ending, but HTC is off to a great start in 3 and a half months in.

    It's not to be honest with you. The initial software release had an issue with battery life, but HTC have since patched via an OTA update.

    At the moment, with relatively heavy use, I get about 30 hours before I'm asked to plug in the charger. With minimal use, I could probably get over 2 days. Thanks to the Tegra 3 companion core, you lose relatively nothing when the phone is idle.

    My friend is currently using the One X and he said its battery life was quite bad (admittedly it was 2 weeks ago and I don't know if the OTA update works for him or not), but if you managed to get 30 hours under heavy usage, the One X seems to be working really well. I will be waiting for the Galaxy S3 to see how Samsung can respond to such a good phone.

    That is good to hear, but with the U.S. version not being a Tegra 3 I wonder if it will act the same as the One X...
