HTC touts the One X battery life

0. phoneArena posted on 03 May 2012, 02:38

HTC outed a blog post in which it detailed the thousand of man hours that went into the battery life performance of its flagship HTC One X handset, partly to alleviate the concerns about it having a non-removable battery, we'd wager to guess...

This is a discussion for a news. To read the whole news, click here

Seeing the HTC one x in action first hand over the last few weeks I've seen it generally last almost two days under normal amount of usage. Mostly at the end of the first day the battery can be at 55-60%

"what a waste of a thousand hours" I traded iphone 4 for this and whilst i do like it overall, the battery life is around 50-75 % of what i got with the iphone in any situation.

Sure. Apple still has the better battery life per whr. However you have to remember that they are still driving a tiny 3.5" screen. That's nearly half the area most flagship Android phones are driving. If Apple makes a move to more comparable screen sizes this fall it will be interesting to see how battery life stacks up on a more even footing.

The One has a lot more background things going on and is more capable than the iphone, whereas you have to use apps to do just about anything with the iphone, hence more power consumption

These results are not real. Check out the real battery test of the HTC one X done y GsmArena @http://blog.gsmarena.com/htc-one-x-battery-test-concludes-the-results-are-inside/

Actually they are real. GSMArena's review was based on old firmware (1.26) most likely. Newer firmware (1.27) fixed it. Doubt they'll change it and update their battery life ranking.

Check the date of the GSMArena test btw to see what I'm talking about.

Thanks! Their result make more sense. No way a HTC One with a 1850mah battey is outlasting a Razr Maxx with a 3300mah battery as phonearena's chart is saying.

This is true at least for my HTC one s, been getting 24+ hours off a charge which is twice what my amaze was getting. so great jobs HTC engineers!

Considering the battery life of the Sensation is my single biggest issue with the device, I'm glad they focused on it for the new crop of phones. That being said, I think a slightly larger battery wouldn't have bothered too many: look at the success of the RAZR MAXX

Why does the S4 AT&T version of the 1X fare so badly in cellular talk time compared to the T3 international version?

Most likely is because it's burdened with bunch of unless apps. However, the processors are different, it could be that reason too. We should only compare AT&T One X to One XL..

How could the HTC One X have longer web battey life than the Razr Maxx??? It has a 3300mah batteyr! Please explain.

Good question. I'm wondering the same thing. If the HTC One X only has a 1850 battery, there's no way it should last as long as the Droid Maxx.

If the HTC Evo LTE 4G (Sprint's One X) comes with a 2000mah battery, how long does it last on a charge compared to the One X? Also how come Sprint's version gets a larger battery?
