Qualcomm: OnePlus One and its Snapdragon 801 chipset can offer more than 60 hours of music playback
posted by Florin T. / Aug 07, 2014, 6:37 PM
The long music playback time (2 days and a half) can be achieved not just because the OnePlus One comes with a very capable 3100 mAh battery, but also because it features Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 801 (8974-AC) chipset. Music is processed by Qualcomm’s Hexagon DSP, this allowing the quad-core Snapdragon 801 CPU to power down and significantly reduce battery consumption. It looks like data and cellular connectivity have been disabled on the OnePlus One showcased by Qualcomm, but, even so, the music playback time remains impressive nevertheless.
Although it’s still relatively hard to find, the OnePlus One is certainly one of the nicest large smartphones we’ve seen lately - and it’s also very cheap, prices for it starting at $300. You can find out more about the handset by reading our OnePlus One review here.

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.

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.

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.
