Qualcomm: OnePlus One and its Snapdragon 801 chipset can offer more than 60 hours of music playback

0. phoneArena 07 Aug 2014, 18:37 posted on

The high-end (yet affordable) OnePlus One is a surprisingly good smartphone, and Qualcomm obviously believes in its qualities...

You are tellling me I just bought one today. I have to say the whole One Plus One invite system was just.... The worst thing every to happen to smartphones, maybe not but it sucked bad. I got my invite and in less than 24 hours it was gone. I contacted them with 10+ hours left and they could care less. I posted about it and they closed the post and said they would ban me if I brought it up again. Why do they even care, like they can have any worse PR or something. So today I got an invite gifted to me and I got one. And, no I can't gift you one too! Glad it's over I will never set foot in the Nazi controlled forums that is forums.oneplus again. There is nothing worse than power happy Admins. From here on out I will only be dealing with their support, if I even have to do that.

do you really think that after 60 hours of playing music though the headphone jack that there will be 50% left on that battery?

What OnePlus is actually promoting is the mass-produced and more expensive Color OS version of the 'One'.

Clever marketing trick.

Is it that high? I know other phones that can go north of 100 hours of music playback...

"Although it’s still relatively hard to find, the OnePlus One is certainly one of the nicest large smartphones we’ve seen lately..."

So nice that it got a lower score than other flagship devices despite being better specced than some of them and costing half as much.

I almost jumped at a oppo find 7a but it doesn't play nice with AT&T LTE. I heard this has the same issue.

Since when? Couldn't find a single forum post stating that. I would love for that if it indeed does work

I have been using my OPO on ATT for three weeks with only one problem (a dumb CSR that provisioned it as a feature phone when I switched back from my iPhone).

I didn't say it wouldn't work, I said it doesn't play nice with LTE on AT&T. 4g yes

Maybe only 60 hours of music playback, but well over 4000 hours of hype, BS, gimmick, hunger games, shoddy support, and lies. By far, the leader in the smartphone world.

Sony Xperia Z2 can play music for 120 hours non-stop.

And, more importantly, can be bought without an invite. And comes with real support from a real company.

I guess this means the Huawei ascend mate 2 can do 150+ hours of music

At least. Maybe a few hundred hours using the same system that OnePlus used to measure things:

1. Plug OnePlus One into charger.
2. Start playback app.
3. Wait for OnePlus One to crash.
4. Measure time.
5. Add 59 hours.
6. Report amazing results.

actually, 60 hrs of continuous playback can be REALISTICALLY achieved if you do the following

1. Low Bit rate music files only
2. Airplane mode with no screen wake-ups

But under normal circumstances (high bit rate, moderate wifi usage etc) you'd be lucky if you can achieve even a third of that.

My old Note 2 with Agni kernel can actually last more than 60 hrs if i let it sit using these strict guidelines

I say BS on this claim.
