Honestly, I don't know how reliable the battery life is gonna be of this new phone. My gf is a samsung fan. and she is suffering from poor battery life issue since S2, and now she has S3.
Changed battery from the service provider. Brand new battery still can't last a whole day of regular use. She doesn't even have unlimited data, or LTE.. The S3 battery life dies half day thru..

honestly, why do people think the octa is going to blow benchmarks out of the water? its purpose is to increase battery efficiency while not sacrificing performance. the 600 is a good processor, just use more battery.

Personally I am hesitant about htc. I currently have a thunderbolt and I want to throw it at a wall. Once htc's next best phone came out their support for it sucked. And htc is notorious for pitting in batteries that are way underpowered for their devices. So I am scared to upgrade to it. Need something with decent battery life.

the one is not going to be anything like the thunderbolt. the thunderbolt was the first lte radio available and so its power efficiency was really poor. this is a at min 3rd generation qualcomm lte radio. it should be much more efficient. not to mention the thunderbolt had a 1400mAh battery and the one will have 2300mAh battery. that's at minimum 64% increase in battery life.

I am still seeing in reviews that the One has mediocre battery life (barely last a day). Even with the bigger battery that doesn't necessarily mean better battery life with more power consuming processor and screen. The feature I am looking at most is battery life so i can actually use my phone, along with performance, seems like sammy is doing well with getting power and battery life from their phone. but we'll see when consumers get their hands on it.

oh and with the thunderbolt, learned quickly to turn off data network and wifi. Through a day off on and off texting I would be straining to make it a full day, so frustrating.

optimus g pro will be better with it' s display and it's huge battery unless if the gs4 has an octa cores cpu and for a reson i think that optimus ui is the best and i knew few days ago that this summer lg is anouncing optimus g2 with octa core 16 megapixel camera 5.2 " inch with 448 ppi 3 gigs of ram so i think it's lg's year

Why is his 1.9 Snapdragon so much lower than the 1.6 Octa? Shouldn't the first Galaxy S4 be below what he is running?
