HTC One Specs Review: A Jet Li of a smartphone

0. phoneArena 19 Feb 2013, 13:31 posted on

HTC is one of our favorite smartphone companies. No, really. They have proven it numerous times that they can think outside the box. We've seen it in some of their earlier Android smartphones, which could easily stand out from the crowd thanks to their characteristic design features and highly-customized software experience...

who cares!!!!! This is Phone arena....NOT TABLETARENA!

Maybe they should launch a completely seperate site for tablets because this site should only be about PHONES thus the f***ing title!

Until a tablet comes out(IN AMERICA) with a hologram keyboard and it can cook me dinner, they are virtually useless compared to an ultrabook!

dude look at the top menu bar the third option says TABLETS. and this site posts on the nexus 7 & 10. note 8.0 - 10.1. the transformer line. the tab line and iPad line... oh yea ive read posts on the playbook and surface... so it was a legitimate question.

All is moot due to the poor battery life, sadly. 2300mah is not gonna cut it.

why not??? you havent used it yet?
its not the size of the battery its how you use the battery.
the 2100 mAh supports the S3 just fine
the 2000 mAh supports the evo 4g lte and gives it the same performance of the S3.

the 2020 mAh on the Droid DNA gives a day and half performance.

How do you know that 2300 mAh isn't going to cut it? Have you seen any power consumption test results? Nothing like Fire, ready, aim.

That`s right !!
and BTW its not tegra 3 anymore
the new sense is more optimized than the previous
even s4 pro consumes less battery than tegra 3,so not to mention the snapdragon 600 that is on it.
this phone is a beast !!

It's going to push battery life right to the edge. We don't need real time manufacture produced consumptions tests to known that. It's historical data. It's looking at other smartphones and seeing their real time performance.

I wouldn't say 2300 mAh won't cut it, but it will standard.

my dna has awesome battery life, I think the extra 300 mah would add a extra 3 hours to my 12-16 hour that i get on my dna

The DNA gets good batterly life, so your statement is false drpain. If you haven't used the phone, don't be so quick to judge it.

Iphone 5- 1400mah battery. 9 hours of web browsing. Size doesnt matter.

Apple designs iPhone and iOS in tangent, meaning they can take optimising seriously and work with the core of iOS and iPhone custom Apple SoC to bring long lasting battery life.

But with Android it's different. The HTC uses NVIDA CPU and a Google OS. It will be a lot harder to optimise battery life when your major components are primarily designed by other manufactures.

And let's not forget than an iPhone will not last 9 browsing the web.

We still don't know anything about the power consumptions, maybe 2300mAh will be enough. So stop trolling about poor battery in every article.

HA! Good luck pulling off an a15 with a 2300mah battery, wtf if your going to be pushing that your gonna want atleast 3000, probably more like 3500.

I like the direction HTC is going now. If I was not on verizon I would definitely give it a try. I am a past thunderbolt owner so I know all to well how poor an HTC product's battery life can be. That being said, I say give it a chance.

This phone better come out for Verizon. Im going to be super pissed if Verizon doesnt get this jewel of a phone because we got the DNA. Dont get me wrong the DNA is a great phone but this is a pure jewel. Also, can I just say that Im getting sick and tire of Verizon and their "DROID" packaging of phones??? its like come on we are not all 14 year old boys that get a kick out of robotic exotic car racing design. And if this phone does come out later for verizon it better not be altered in any way with disgusting Verizong branding...

so mad right now that Verizon is not listed as a carrier scheduled to get this phone. This was my phone damn it!

Small battery 2300 with full HD display my estimated time will last about 4 hours of non-stop usage.

The DNA had good battery life with just 2020 mAh. Smaller screen, more power efficient SoC, and a bigger battery. It should easily get through a full day of use.

With the DNA on board, you'd assume that Verizon wasnt going to carry the HTC One. I dont like how certain phones arent with every carrier. Phones like the DNA, HTC One and many others shouldnt have carrier exclusives. I wouldnt mind trying the DNA on AT&T's LTE network to see if it can get rid of the displeasure ive had with HTC over the last year and a half

yeah once again Verizon Wireless had to be a bunch of f***ing douches and not carry it because they think the DNA is supposed to be some badass device when in reality the DNA sucks with its 16GB internal memory and no memory card slot, thats why this device should be pretty sweet with two options of 32 GB or 64 gb because id totally get the 32GB!
