HTC One battery scores very well in endurance tests
posted by Daniel P. / Mar 11, 2013, 5:27 AM
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.
- Display 4.7" 1080 x 1920 pixels
- Camera 4 MP / 2.1 MP front
- Processor Qualcomm Snapdragon 600, Quad-core, 1700 MHz
- Storage 64 GB
- Battery 2300 mAh(18h 3G talk time)

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).

This phone is just PERFECT from every single angle. Superb metal design. Fantastic screen. Raw effing power. Great camera and it's features. Stereo front speakers. Wide angle front camera. Even better Sense + BlinkFeed. LOTS of storage. Great battery life. It just has it ALL !! :)

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

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.

I don't trust the source much, HTC has a bad reputation for making an awful battery life phone fyi...

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.

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.
