    Default Battery Life - HOX vs SGS3

    Argument: The HOX only has an 1800mah battery, and it is non removable.

    LOL so much for the super 2100mah SGS3 battery!

    + battery banks are available you know....

    Anandtech:










    -----------------------

    Also the HOX is tested on 4.0.3 unlike the SGS3, and users of the test leak of 4.0.4 for the HOX have reported much better battery life compared to 4.0.3

    Wow, I must say I'm impressed. Who/what's the source for this info? Many websites are saying that their tests show S3 has longer batteryblife in their tests, especially video playback and games. Maybe that 5th ninja core isnt a myth after all. have an international HOX and I must say I agree with the WiFi (hotspot and browsing) time, but the talk time seems a bit too much, 12.5 hours?

    For all the praising of the extra 300mah battery, I must say I wouldn't say S3's battery life is that much better (my brother has a S3). It gives you more than 3 hours of screen time on average (average screen time for my HOX is about 2 hours 30mins) but its not so good at preserving battery in stand by mode.

    Anandtech

    Very popular third party testing organisation, most people over the years have regarded their battery tests to be the most accurate when comparing to other devices.

    Here is what I don't get. Those times seem so high. He is getting close to 11 hours on Wi-Fi browsing. So that means on one charge he was able to browse the internet on the one x for 11 hours? I'd sure love to see that 11hr screen on time screen shot.

    Anandtech might test on lowest brightness, you don't know their parameters.

    This is mine on the kindle app, (lowest brightness)





    This would equal over 13 hours screen on time!! - (As once the HOX reaches a certain level, it will enter its own battery saving mode to save juice)

    The HOX screen is very battery friendly.

    Obviously, the more CPU/GPU intensive apps you use, the battery will drain much quicker.

    A guy on XDA has had over 12hours screen on time, by PDF reading with 20mins of calls,

    From the paragraph after the chart from the anandtech review. Even if I isn't realistic, it's consistent and the same for each phone. So this can be considered apples to apples.



    The web browsing tests consist of a few dozen pages which are loaded every 10 seconds with the display set at precisely 200 nits (using a meter) until the phone dies - this is done over WiFi and cellular data. The tethering test consists of a single client notebook attached to the device using its onboard WiFi hotspot function, and four tabs of our page load test alongside a 128 kbps streaming MP3 station are loaded on that notebook until the phone dies.

    The Tegra3 international version does,

    I don't have a clue what percentage, but its built into the nvidia chipset, their own battery saving mode. (Nvidias, not HTC's)

    FWIW people are seeing different results in real world use.

    If I may chime in on behalf of the Galaxy S 3 fans:

    <channel fanboy>
    These results have nothing to do with the real world because with the GS3 we would be using an extended battery that we swapped in with the ninja removable battery capability so we've got more battery life anyway and our phones are polycarbonate too and anyway you've got multitasking issues nyah nyah nyah
    </channel fanboy>

    Wow that was traumatic.

    It doesn't change the poor battery performance of the SGS3...

    2100 is just a number it seems!

    All phones can have extended battery, heard of battery packs/banks...

    Just because we are getting SG3's doesn't mean we're mindless fanboys. I've used HTC phones since before they were cool but I can't get a One X on Verizon so the only logical choice is the GS3

    13hrs battery on time, 2 hours screen on time with the SGS3. I JUST hit 50% battery. This is by far the best consumption ive ever seen. (GPS ON, WIFI ON and conntected, Sync ON, Auto screen brightness)

    Just crawled out of the S3 forum and read a lot of bickering about S3 battery! Guess what I got 17hours + on my 4.0.3 the other day and I can't complain.

    That's one powerful 747...porn and flash are a true test for battery life..I find the upper half of 50% lasts a lot longer than the bottom half of 50%. I.e. once I'm on the 30% zone drainage seems to be a lot quicker. Half of our phones haven't even been truely optimized yet through software tweaks so once we get a few updates things should only get better.
