HTC One battery tests impress, beats competition

With all the new high specifications that modern smartphones are coming with, users can sometimes find the battery life of the handset doesn’t quite meet expectations, but some HTC One battery tests look impressive as it beats the competition.

HTC smartphones have not always been the best for battery life, and personally I could sometimes have issues with the Desire HD that I used to own, but it seems the company is onto a winner with the HTC One.

Many HTC handsets now feature uni-body designs that make the batteries installed inside them un-removable, but the 2,300 mAh unit found inside the HTC One has returned some impressive figures in testing. It was found to provide almost 17 hours of 3G talk time and lasted an impressive 8 hours and 32 minutes during constant video playback.

With these sought of figures it doesn’t seem that owners will have too much trouble going all day without reaching for the charger. The length of talk time compared to 15.3 hours on the Nexus 4, 11.6 hours on the Samsung Galaxy 3, but the Apple iPhone 5 came in behind at only 8 hours of 3G talk time.

When you consider the HTC One has a Full HD touchscreen display it makes these figures even more impressive compared to the other smartphones, and the version of the HTC One that was used wasn’t running the final version of the operating system, so whether the battery life would stay the same or change either way remains to be seen.

This news comes after we recently told you that there may be some shortages of the handset at launch because of the camera specs, and some areas may not see the device for a couple of months yet.

Are you impressed by these battery life figures?

    I can Believe my Eyes..I love my DHD but the battery life sucks.
    Glad to see that is not the case with HTC One, but I will wait for the reviews to come.

    Wow

  • John

    no. It is only talk time when the display is off.

    • SID

      And you’re impressed with the iPhone’s 8hrs?

  • John

    no, I am not impressed by the test results. It is only talk time when the display is off.

    Outdated. I’ve seen the much more modern handsets blow the HTC One out of the water.

    We’d appreciate it if you can compare the HTC’s battery performance between this current generation of smartphones. Sony Xperia Z, Samsung Galaxy S4, and LG Optimus G Pro.

    If they could make the battery user replaceable and add an option to expand the available storage, I’d reconsider buying an HTC. If they continue to take the path of Apple, they are not going to succeed. Android is all about flexibility, not replacing your phone every year or two because either the battery failed or the storage is not enough.

    I don’t like the quality of the HTC One X. Although they’re claiming that their polycarbonate is more premium than the SGS3, after a few months, it’s true ‘quality’ will start to show. It will start to crack and is very difficult to clean.

    Every other reivew tells horror stories of how the battery life is atrocious.
    This phone is a big fail. It’s just a beautiful empty shell.
    Get the SGS4 instead, or even better, the Note III
