    I'm really on the fence about this S4 vs HTC One. I really, really enjoy having the ability to swap batteries when needed, but that HTC One is one sexy beast. I'm intrigued by this camera (not so much with Sense)

    What are people going to do for extra battery power???? [I don't use cases so I won't add a case+battery option]

    Yay, someone with a sensible response to a non removable battery, and only 20 sorted.

    I just picked this up over a week ago - totally digging it. Works great, small form factor, huge capacity. I actually picked up the one with the tablet port (2A charge current vs. the standard 1A charge current most phones will use) but it was only $10 more.

    I use the Anker 5600mAh battery pack I bought from Amazon.co.uk for 20. Charges both my iPhone 5 and my HTC One perfectly, Not that i've actually used it yet with the HTC because this battery is way better than my iPhone.

    For those of you here that have had the One for a week or two now, what are your impressions on battery life?

    I would get a small portable battery pack, maybe contact Mophie and see if they will be making one for the One. They did for the GS3, no word on if they will for the GS4. I know I wouldn't even bother with one on a phone that could swap batteries out like the GS4, a second battery is cheaper and less bulky, but the One could benefit from it.

    This is an awesome thread! Thanks so much for this info. After a lot of debate, I preordered a developer edition yesterday. I usually carry an extra battery with me for my GNex. I don't use it often, but I like having it around for travel, long days, and those days when I end up using my phone more than usual. I'm looking for a similar solution for the One and think this option is fantastic!

    Anyone got any thoughts on the official htc external battery bank. it looks to be retailing around 40 here in the uk, which is a bit on the expensive side compared to some other cheaper versions by other companies, is it better long term to use the official battery bar compared to a 3rd party manufacturer.

    While the battery bank may be official, 40 seems like a steep price for only 4,000 mAh battery capacity. I get the feeling that you are mostly paying for the HTC brand than anything.

    Never used one of these. How long does one of these devices keep their charge if you don't use and discharge it very often? Seems like it would be handy to have as a backup, but not something I'd be using that frequently, which makes me wonder if it would lose its charge over time if it went unused for a long period.

    With any android device besides a note 2 or droid razr people have to do tweaking to get a full days use without charging and I'm pretty sure a lot of people make it through without swapping batteries.

    What am I going to do personally? Tweak my settings like I always have to do and it will last just fine. And then to take it a step further flash a kernel that provides better battery life. That's what I'm going to do for extra battery power. I'd also say wait until you actually use the device to decide if you need something additional. And of you do then one of the battery packs above is sufficient. I'd actually prefer over another battery. Just me though.

    I don't like cases, it makes the phone bulky. I have got a RAVPower external battery pack. It helped a lot when outdoor.

    At first the anker product I bought was working well with my one but for the past couple months I seem to be getting pop-ups on my phone saying the external charger not compatible when its plugged into my phone. Is this a concern cause I just ignore it and keep charging it with the anker.

    I have the Mophie Juice Pack on my (silver version) and I don't find it too big, bulky or annoying. It is nice to have a full battery ready to do at the flip of a switch.

    I'm trying to decide between anker and ravpower. Both seem to be popular and frequently go on sale.
