    Wow! Really jealous. I wish I could get that much usage. I'm lucky to get 12 hours ago.. Will post mine this evening

    From yesterday, first day of normal use for me.

    Yeah, I was at 5% battery last night with the screen at 2 hr 55 mins (device was on for about 17 hrs total). The rest of the metrics are similar - about 9-10% cell standby, etc. Lasted about 16 hrs total.

    I wonder what's different. Navi, are you using live wallpapers, and what's your screen brightness at?

    Slashgear has a review which claims that, with the screen on, the device lasted over 8 hrs, and there was still juice left:

    "With the display set to be permanently on, along with GPS, and with mixed use of WiFi and cellular data, playing videos and browsing the internet, both versions of the One X managed to run for over eight hours with 26-percent power left. Bear in mind this is an extreme case: with more typical – though still heavy – use, we went for nearly a full day on a single charge."

    HTC One X Review (AT&T) - SlashGear (2/3 of the way down)

    I must be missing something. I used the screen for about 40 minutes today, with some web browsing and gaming on the morning train, and my battery is at 65%.

    ...no live wallpapers, that is a battery hog, period.

    Battery is set to at about 40% or so. I don't use the auto option...

    I don't have live wallpaper today, and my device is losing battery just as quickly. I don't think the live wallpaper actually has a big impact. I am just still surprised how quickly it's draining. It feels like my phone will only last about 3 hrs if I keep the screen on and browse, write e-mails, etc. Feels inconsistent with what other people are reporting, and what online reviews say. Not sure if I got a bad battery or something (quality says "good" under battery monitor).

    My screen brightness is at 35%, no auto adjustment.

    The screen is the big got here. If you can get away with lowering the brightness, I'd do it. That is, of course, if you won't have the opportunity to charge it. Live wallpapers are always a battery killer as well. I'm almost never without a way to charge it... but even so, I think the battery life is great.



    That was 2H and 52M of screen on time.

    I have been taking screenshots of my battery life since I bought the phone a month ago, mostly at times before I charge it. I'm using the International version.

    LOL

    .... I spent most of the day streaming audio over H/3G, so - a little misleading, and proof that 'screen on' time is not always a good judge of battery.

    Some of my metrics from today are attached. Not sure why my phone is being drained so quickly - maybe 4G talk and Web browsing is costly from the battery perspective. Thinking about swapping my unit.

    Neo:

    Go to Settings / Wireless and Networks / USEAGE
    Tap Settings, st Show WIFI
    Back arrow
    Hit the tabs at the bottom to show different graphs. Drag any graphs up to see applications using data (cellular or Wifi tabs only).

    Look for what is using your radios, both cell and wifi.

    I played with that lame Locations app that HTC included, and it launched a download of biblical proportions. Didn't notice it at first, but it ran for an hour.

    Killed my battery.

    Also, have you ever run your phone down to automatic power off, then recharged fully before use? Makes a big difference to the charge controller when guessing percentages if it knows the absolute bottom.

    Voice calls are also a big drain.

    Anything taxing the radio at a steady and constant pace will kill the battery...downloads, videos, streaming music, etc.

    I am running AnTuTu Battery Tester right now, going to see how it does. I'll check the radio usage - thank you for the tip. I haven't tried turning the radios off, and all the stuff I've done was online (using LTE), so that could be it.

    Locations app? I'll look at that. Google has Latitude, but that one is pretty battery-friendly.

    Yup, I have done the automatic power off - the first day I got the phone.



    Kevin - is it just voice over LTE/4G? I feel like for calls over 3G, my old iPhone 3GS would last forever...

    No real network usage. Only Microcell. I little disappointing but I did download a lot of apps and messed around more than I normally would. I got a little over 8 hours. Another noob question (iPhone convert) but if I buy an app from the amazon app store, will the amazon app always have to be running (using RAM) when a purchased app is running?

    thanks

    Got a score of 432 on AnTuTu Battery Tester, which apparently is about the same as Galaxy S2. Anyone have other scores to compare to?

    On average, I think I am getting around 3 hours of on-screen time. If I am a little more conservative with the things I am doing, I will go over 4 hours. If I keep the brightness lower, I am sure I could go longer... but it has just been so damn sunny lately.

    Up to this point, my average day consists of: web browsing, heavy messaging through free messaging apps like kakaotalk and weixin (using gps), flipping back and forth through translation/dictionary apps, a bit of music, and 20-30 minutes of tegra games.

    I'm happy with it. It's funny because when the reviews first came out, commenters everywhere were bashing the battery. But here I am today, with 4 hours+ of screen-on time, normal usage, and it was 12 hours til my phone shutoff. Of course I would always appreciate more time if improvements can be made to the tegra 3 drivers, but hey so far so good.

    Pretty sure voice isn't done over LTE, but when you're in a voice call it's constantly communicating with the network, which is why voice calls will usually show up as a top user, even if you only talked for an hour.

    Interesting.

    I had my battery at around 20%, just watched about 1.5 hrs of video until it died - in Airplane Mode. From that perspective, seems great. I wonder if it's indeed the LTE that's draining the thing so fast when I use it for web/email.

    Using LTE will drain the battery faster, even with the more efficient baseband we have. It's still reportedly much better than the Vivid or Skyrocket.

    I wish they would give us the ability to turn it off, but I'm not sure that'll happen.

    I let it completely drain for the first cycle. The first few hours of use was, and usually is for everyone, a lot of setting everything up, downloading apps, etc. Once it totally died I plugged it in for the first time and let it get to 100% and took it off the charger. 11% battery life after 18+ hours of typical use from me... this thing has great battery life for my needs.

    Exactly.

    And this was the big item from all the know-it-alls posting on Android Central, screaming Deal Breaker when ever the battery was mentioned.

    I can go to bed with 5% battery, and wake up 7 hours later and still have 2% left. I have the quad core model which has a 5th core that handles very low power tasks when the phone is asleep.

    I'm not complaining at all. My One x has the best battery life of any smart phone I've ever owned. This usage is with the screen set to auto and I'm in an LTE area. Happy camper here
