    Default Battery pretty much stinks on first day

    So yeah, after all the praise it seems as if im either just accustomed to a long day of battery with the GN2 or the HTC one battery is poor. My battery today with moderate use and the majority of the day on Wifi has been pretty poor. I'm sitting at 7hrs and 24mins and already down to 34%. Granted where I am located I am on 2g services this still isn't good as most here paint it to believe. I see folks talking about they get 20+ hours of B Life with "moderate-heavy" usage but I don't think thats right. Are there some Palm Pre guys that own the One now claiming astronomical battery life when in fact its very poor?

    Well from my experience this phone does pretty well with battery life in 4G LTE coverage. From my Nexus 4, which wasn't that good for battery life, this is a very big improvement. Easily get through a full day with my HTC One and put it on the charger before bed with around 30% and 15 to 18 hours with moderate usage.

    Where are you that you have 2g ans you do do know that having a bad signal can affect battery life really bad.

    ive only had mine not even a full day but when I turned it on for the 1st time it was at probably 70%. that was at 3:30 PST. I used it pretty heavily, installing/trying apps and I had to plug it in at about 10:30 in the evening. I'll get a better sample tomorrow but it seems ok so far for me.

    I noticed that when I first got my phONE that I also didn't get good battery life, but after a couple weeks of charge cycles i started getting much longer usage times between charges.

    I honestly think my battery life has gotten better over the first couple months. Maybe I'm just getting more used to it or have made adjustments to better manage the battery, but I seem to get longer out of it than I did early on.

    You're expecting it to be great on the first day, with you constantly using it?

    This! Between the batter getting several full charge cycles in, combined with the fact that on the first day you're probably using it WAY more than usual (gotta check out all those features, right?!), it'll get better. I was disappointed my first day as well, but it's improved quite a bit, both getting regular use and lasting through the full day.

    If you have only just got the phone then you can't have charged it, so what do you expect? From the factory they only ever have minimal charge and like others have said, it takes a few cycles for the battery to settle down. Mine was not great for the first week but then it got steadily better.

    The thing is, you gotta look at screen on time. "moderate usage" doesn't mean jack in terms of something that can be compared from user to user. The One is capable of over 7 hours screen on time. That stands up pretty well to the Note II methinks.

    It's better than my S3 ever was, and the S3 was pretty good. That makes me happy.

    It just takes a few charge cycles to achieve its full potential. Don't worry Truthteller.....your batter WILL get better.

    I dont really know about you guys but the battery life is poor. With power saving mode on and 10% brightness, no bluetooth wifi or gps, my battery drop 1% every 4 minutes browsing web.
    Thats comparing to my old ip 4s which the battery capacity is only 1100 maH. It takes 6 minutes to drop 1%.
    Btw this is my second htc one. I switched the first one with same problem but no help

    You either have a bad app or unit. I drop as little as 1% an hour on power save mode. I couldn't believe it.

    Yes you are correct.."screen time" is the tell all when it comes to battery.

    I've asked this before but I haven't gotten a good reply yet. How are people getting 5-7 hours of screen on time? I certainly make it thru the day, and I'm not complaining about the battery. I'm more than pleased. But I am curious how to maximize. Here are my settings:I've got 3 Gmail accounts syncing, 1 yahoo that checks every 4 hours, bluetooth on, wifi off when I'm not home, auto brightness, no Facebook refresh, no twitter. Turned off the location in maps.

    Any suggestions?

    Much appreciated.

    Now, did you happen to consider the screen size and processing power difference between the One and the ip 4s? The One's screen is much bigger, more pixels, and using a higher density than the iphone. The One is also a quad core, more ram, and faster graphics chip. So only a 2 minute difference to drop 1% isn't bad. Sure it can add up....but the iphone only does one thing at a time...android and the One does many.

    Kill the auto brightness and slap that puppy at 40% or less. This will greatly improve battery life when the screen is on.
