HTC One battery scores very well in endurance tests

HTC One battery scores very well in endurance tests

If you have been worried about the sealed battery into the HTC One, fret not, as it seems to power the phone for a long time, an improvised 3rd party test indicates.

The One sports a 2300 mAh juicer, with which the phone managed the very respectable 8 hours and 32 minutes of video playback, and more than 16 hours of talk time in 3G mode. Given that any score above six hours in continuous video playback is already above the average mark, this is a pretty good achievement on HTC's part, and with a high-res Full HD screen at that.

It's One aree where HTC has outdone itself. Very impressive stats based on early reviews and user feedback (SAMOLED still outperforms screen drainage though).

3G talk time, big whoop. Video playback is good tho. Lets see web browsing over 4g scores. That's the great equalizer.

Wait a minute....I actually use my phone for calls.... Talk times do matter to some of us.

That's the great equalizer, and if the S4 launches with SAMOLED it'll get trashed by the HTC One in web browsing over 4G.

Samsung is traditionally all about inefficient software that they hide with massive batteries.

Nice, so hopefully they've answered a major problem with their phones. The others being Sense, camera (still unimpressive in the One) and expandable storage + removable battery.

HTC phones usually have good talk times and decent to good multimedia times. Call quality also tends to be top notch as is speaker volume.

its a fact. HTC always put bad battery on their phones, compared to Samsung and Motorola.
don't be surprised if few months later, HTC will come with HTC One+ with bigger battery...

But after (more than) a year or so, performance and efficiency would degrade dramatically....nothing beats a user replaceable battery, just sayin.

Since 2008....I have yet to keep a smart phone long enough where the battery degraded dramatically. The longest I had a smartphone since then was 18 months. Even that battery didnt degrade dramatically.

I have been using non removable batteries since 2011...and havent had a problem yet. They do degrade....but I dont think we keep our phones long enough to have it happen.

After a year, go get it replaced. 30 dollars and you won't have to worry for another year or two.

Seriously, this ship has sailed.

have you seen the video quality, it actually is amazing. Feels almost like a dslr if you do the same filter editing.

htc has shown that they really want to compete.Htc is really on a roll here with the 'one' which has great battery life, the best screen by far and the best designed phone i've ever seen.

People always keep mentioning about how much talktime, browsing, video watching but after you charge the phone, you don't want to keep watching a video constantly, you have other things you do in life :) Android is really bad with retaining charge when doing nothing. Even if I do nothing with my S3 I loose about 4 percent in about 6 hours(I dont want to keep turning off everything on the phone in that period). That is something which no one mentions. why? I think that should be another characterstic that should be mentioned when discussing battery life?

This source shows the nexus beating the sgs3 in battery. That alone discredits it...nm the iPhone 5.

My nexus 4 couldn't last me to 2pm. Then it was charging from 2pm to 4pm.

I don't think so. It was fine if I didn't use it. Mind you, I didn't keep the phone for longer than 3 days. I was not impressed by the battery.

Sorry about your Nexus, but you will still continue using it right? Battery life isn't really a big deal. Don't forget, the Nexus is a cool phone :)

I have been getting 5+ hours of screen on time with mine since the newest update (80% brightness) and Bluetooth always on.

Try a restore maybe

Hmm... that is weird. Iphone 5 gets one of the best results in battery benchmarks that I have seen. 10 hours in web browsing and 10 hours in video playback and that is very good, even better than HTC ONE according to benchmarks. What are you doing on your iphone, because iphone 5 should last through a day just fine.

Now I know somebody got paid. Follow the source of this article, there's no such thing as this article strongly claims. That chart drawn there is not even in the source and PA has not reviewed the phone on their own. So where does that fact come from? that chart???
Visiting thehttp://verdict.com there's a full review of the phone and the battery test is so bad that they cleary says that HTC has failed on that part. Go get the f***n truth fellas

Verge also gave the DNA a bad battery life, but hey. A good source like GSMARENA said it was good. I wouldnt trust the Verge reviews. The Verge isnt exactly a big fan of HTC phones, they always say random crap about it.

The specs on this phone make it seem like a beast! It looks very good as well, but as a tech for a major cellular provider here in the u.s. and I can tell you there are a few phones that consistently come in for repairs. The galaxy s2(software issue), HTC Evo 4g, Evo 3d, and Evo 4g LTE. I might see about 5-10 different HTC hardware and software issues on any given day, where I normally see about 1 s3 a week which usually has something to do with user error.

I really hope this HTC phone is a bit more reliable for us than other HTC's have been in the past. I would love to see this device be a success. Especially with that camera! :)
