    ^At least that particular quad core anyway..


    That 5th core on the Tegra 3 seems to be doing as advertized. Will be interesting to see it compared to other quad cores. I see I will be holding on to my current phone till more quad cores come out for comparisons. I do have a PS Vita that hasnt been charged in probably 3 days and it still has what looks like 80% or 70% battery life left. I havent used it in those 3 days but it seems to have amazing stand by time.

    Looking at your use....if I had the One X...it could probably last me 2 days...lol. I keep my phone on Airplane mode most of the day at work, phones not allowed in the office and they go in a lil locker that drains the battery real fast.

    That is very good news to hear about the quad core's battery life. Without question I'm waiting for quad core w/ LTE capability to upgrade. Fact of the matter is very limited battery life is by far the biggest problem with almost every smartphone available today and it's not just the inconvenience of having to plug in for those of us in the field, it's the lack of ability to plug in. When you need your phone for business purposes you need it, it's not just a minor inconvenience of not being able to play games, surf the web or listen to music. A dead phone at the very least costs you time which of course is money not to mention the very real possibility of lost business.

    I see zero Reddit usage in these screenshots. Can someone do a daily run with average Reddit is Fun / Diode usage so I can get a real-world estimate, please?

    Quite expected for a high end Android offering...but people are going to lament the non-removable battery for sure. I could be wrong.

    While the non-removable battery certainly is not a good thing in my experience in 2-3 years of usage you don't have to replace your battery anyway and I think 2-3 years covers the amount of time most of us keep a smartphone before upgrading especially with the rapid advance of smartphone technology. Of more importance to me is how do you reboot the phone on those occasions where it freezes and battery removal is the only way to reboot?

    I'm also sure there will be other choices in the near future that have removable batteries. 6 months from now I think we will have a number of quad core 4G/LTE compatible choices.

    I'm sure there is an immediate reboot button sequence you can depress to get out of freezes, for the One X, yes>?

    Yes it is...like it was mentioned earlier...its that way for tablets too.

    I had to use it once or twice so far for my RAZR. Had my RAZR since 11-11. Power and Volume down for 10 -20 sec? Think of it like this....and I'm sure there are a few computer users on here...lol.

    If my desktop freezes...I hold down the power button and it reboots. I can also unplug my PC...but holding down the power button always...always does the trick.

    So really a non issue for non-removable battery phones then, I would imagine there being years of uproar for IPhone users if there weren't any such feature from the start...

    The iPhone has had decent battery life for a long time. With Android phones....you better do your research first.

    Even then...Android did stuff out the box that the iPhone couldnt that effects battery life. Widgets being the main thing. If you load up just one widgets and change some settings in that widget...could mean the difference in your phone dying in 12 hours or 6 hours.

    With that said, It would suck to go up to 15 plus hours on a HTC one X and then realizing shucks I am nowhere near a charging point... Widgets or no widgets.

    Chargers' a must I think, at least if you aiming for a one day's use....

    If this is true and you're not just spouting off to try and make a point about not liking the non-removable battery, then you would/should be carrying an external battery pack anyways, even if you had a razr maxx.

    Default Re: One X official battery thread.

    That is a valid point about carrying an external battery however if your phone drains its battery in the 4-5 hour range (which my Captivate easily does, often less than 4 hours depending on usage) you'd need to carry two extra batteries to get through the day. I certainly don't see where a non-removable battery has any advantage which makes me wonder why HTC designed the phone that way. Is there any other Android phone with a non removable battery? Again, it's a non issue as there will be other phones comparable to the One X available with removable batteries.

    I think phone manufacturers are well aware that users want phones with longer battery life and I believe that is a major reason for the upcoming quad core phones rather than the multi threading capabilities. Every article I've read about quad core mentions increased battery life. As someone else mentioned on this thread at this point there are very few apps available that can even take advantage of multi core chips however greatly improved battery life is a strong selling point for most everyone, a solid reason for purchasing a quad core phone.

    Number of times in three weeks that I've had to do some sort of emergency reboot that folks are so worried about:

    Zero.

    (And one of those weeks was on early, buggy software.)

    Those screen shots are looking good Phil.
    If they could now come up with a more efficient screen, this phone could last a week.

    Do you put the battery life down to the sleep mode efficiency or something else?
    Sometimes I put my phone down and when i pick it up 2 hours later, I haven't lost a single %.

    on a normal use, not always connected to wi-fi (1 to 2 hours a day) and another 1 to 2 hours a day on mobile data, using it on low screen light (which is more than enough) and using it for normal stuff (text, calls, browsing, emails, etc) i'm getting about 2 days to 2 days and a half. now, if i play a game, that's a tottaly different story.. battery goes down in a couple of hours.

    Phil, with wifi at 10% (in every screen shot) you must not be doing much out of the house stuff correct? My battery life is always far better on the weekends becuase I am around the house much more and always on wifi. Network data generally paints a much different picture.

    I wake up. I use the phone. I plug it in when I go to bed.

    The last thing I want to do (and have time for) is have to actively manage the battery.

    Right. And as you'll read in the post sometime today, remember that I've got the Euro version of the One X on AT&T. So I bet things will change a little once we get the official AT&T release. (Including, of course, the chipset.)

    Yeah, when you get the LTE version and leave WIFI I imagine battery will be much less. On a typical saturday, when Im on Wifi most of the time, I will get around 3.5% an hour discharge at the end of the day. You are running about 5.5% an hour (on average). Even with the European version, I would expect you would be loosing 7% an hour on HSPA+ instead of wifi. Not quite as impressive.

    I know this might not totally apply since it is based off of another phone but with my Nexus I regularly get 20+ hours on one battery and I almost never use wifi (even when I am at home). I will admit I have done modding to my nexus as that was the reason I bought the phone but with enough optimization there is no reason you could not expect the same out of the battery in the HTC One X. True LTE will cause more drain but hopefully you could turn it off and with it being integrated into the chip set and with the S4 being 28 nm and more efficient hopefully the hit to battery life will not be to terrible.

    I have seen people getting over 4 hours screen life. Had the phone a week and I have managed this once, think I got just over 4hrs once but battery was at like 3%.

    Disabled 3G (changed to 2G) and running at around 30% brightness makes no difference.

    When I first got the phone, I charged it up while off until the light turned green. Worried that might have something to do with it.

    Running the battery down to zero and then doing a full charge, hasn't made any difference.

    Got nothing set to sync in the background neither.

    Fearing i've got a bad battery.
