ho3xh ...... there's a show everytime there's a post about brand and OS. Every one has to defend their 'faith' about stuff . It's natural . Because it's about what they believe . Every product has their flaws and advantages . No one is 'perfect'. I too, using a product that i like . No big deal . But , it is BETTER if we praise there's more than one OS / brand . That way, innovation may created much more than if just one or 2 OS / brand . It's about a choice and functionality . Style is a functionality too . People that buy a more pricier stuff, because to them, style is a functionality . Come on ...... . Don't let PRIDE hold u on 2 think / do better . * Peace [ IBLIS_PERANG ]

I'm not at all interested in the Mobile Windows OS, but still, the battery life is pretty impressive. I'm curious how much of a difference it will be once Android L and Project Volta come out.

i dont hate android OS as a whole, and its definitely open source thats why cyanogen mod was so famous. What i hate is the conservative fanboys who even in normal condition behave like someone offended their early ancestors. Everyone almost anyone has used android for once in their life, Period.

If this turns out to be true, then Microsoft could capitalize by rolling out their own "wall hugger" ad aimed at Android.

while the One (M8) for Android can withstand up to 12 hours. That’s nearly double the dfiference. Wrong. htc.com talks about up to 20 hours for 3G. source - neowin article (can't give a links yet)

Where did you get your specs as they are not correct. I guess the correct data wouldn't have made for a good headline. With the same battery, HTC One (M8) for Windows listed to have slightly better battery life of the One (M8) for Android Man I hate people that have to create headline rather than just reporting them.
