    Default Re: So what happens if my HTC One battery goes bad?

    This is a very good question and one that I struggle well as I decide if i'm going to keep the phone. It is FACT and undeniable that these batteries over time do give out. If the didn't then the stores wouldn't keep replacable batteries on deck. My GN2 has shown tremendous wear and tear and can barely muster through 8 hours without needed a charge. My friend has and HTC phone with a non removable battery and she can't even get past 5 hours without needing to charge. I truly believe that Li Ion batteries have a most a 1 year life spand. Especially for those of us who charge overnight.

    Use it has a nice looking paper weight. Lol. the battery is a li-po ion. They usually have a 600-800 recharge cycle rate before they start to die. It should be good for two years. U might have to email htc about the cost of replacing it. Usually carries have a warranty/repair center and they might be able to replace it there.

    But with how often phones change they might nor carry batteries for ut in a year or two.

    That's just not true at all. I've always been able to get over two years of decent battery life on my phones including the one I am using now. But yes, at some point all batteries need replacing. But none of us are going to be using the same phones five or ten years down the road. At least I hope no one here will be!
    If I wanted limits on what I could do with a device, I would have an iPhone!

    You have a very special case then..Just about everyone I know that has an Iphone has battery that basically is depleted and can't hold a charge for long.

    Read the article I linked in this thread and change your charging habits and you may find your battery health exceeds your previous experience. As anecdotal evidence my two year old EVO 3D battery has probably 80% capacity which is pretty good in my mind considering I only discovered the best way to maintain battery health a year into ownership. Best luck.

    He's not the one with the special case. It is not normal, and is certainly out of spec, for a battery to have the issues you describe after that period of time.

    Droid DNA
    Evo 4g lte
    htc one s (was great when it was new, but died pretty quickly)
    Htc Rezound

    All have bad battery life.

    I've owned a couple of those devices and either me or a lot of customers or people close to me can attest that those devices have terrible battery life.

    And with battery life it doesn't get better over time, no it goes the other way around...

    Because Verizon's demands crippled that device from the get go.

    My wife and I have both been using iPhones through 2 year cycles since the first one and have not experienced significant battery loss over time.

    I haven't bought insurance for any of my phones for almost 10 years and I've never regretted it.

    Also, with Verizon's insurance plan, after paying the deductible you may not even get a new phone, more often than not, you get a refurbished phone. I think I could do better with a phone off eBay.
    Same here! Even my release day Palm Pre- still has the same battery and not an issue wrong with it. Its going on 4-5 years old now. (I think?)

    With the HTC One you will only need about half of its battery with Google Now, GPS/Google Maps data connection all turned off. No complaints from me in the battery dept.

    How was it Verizon's fault? Sorry I do no know much about the back story here. However I'd like to know.

    As far as anyone worried about the HTC One battery...Don't be. It's pretty solid thus far!

    Based on my 2 daughters and 3 sons experience with the iPhone I would have to agree. They are always charging their phones in the afternoon when they come to visit. On a recent vacation my one daughter's iPhone 5 needed charging at about 4pm every day. I know that is anecdotal information but it is odd that 5 people with iPhones have the same battery problems. But then again:

    It can be a real pain when you watch your battery drain, and you're no where near a power source.
    I know my days are numbered, but as long as a phones with removable batteries are available, that's what I'll be buying.

    The problem with complaints could be a lot of issues. Like with the HTC Evo 3D/4G I never really had an issue that I blamed on HTC. It was Sprint's crap network in Vermont. You would tops get 1-2 bars of 3G data service. The same with my Palm Pre-. So with personal experience with these phones I do not blame HTC. Thats not to say that no one had battery problems.

    Now with att my HTC One at the end of the day will have around 50% of its battery left. So I have only been charging at night so far. But no matter what at the end of the day you will always have complaints about batteries. Just the nature of the beast I guess.

    Or you can get an external battery. There is that option.

    True fact.



    There is the HTC official one. But if you look on Amazon you will find many more options as well.

    That's some good information (in the article), although I'd say it's much more relevant to devices with sealed/embedded batteries. Whereas with a user-replaceable battery, I can use it however I wish knowing it can be easily replaced any time. No need to change my use or charging habits to try to maximize battery life or longevity.

    OK, I first went to their warranty page, and was unable to find a policy regarding battery. I have emailed HTC asking what they would do should the battery faily to hold a significant charge at 6 months, or 18 months, and am awaiting their reply. Once I get that reply, I will post it here, and then we'll all know for sure what their position on battery replacement is.

    In all likelyhood the battery will easily last you more than 2 years, and should still give good life at 3 years. My concern is though that is usually the case - what recourse do I have if I get a battery that is a lemon? I'll post a reply once they reply to me.

    Here is the warranty I was able to pull for their Android phones in the US:



    Their limited warranty is for 12 months, but nothing in the warranty talks specifically about the battery, except voiding the warranty by shorting the battery or other mallicious means.

    It would be a shame if the warranty for the battery was only 12 months, when most people are on a 24 month contract. As badly as I want this phone, It also makes me hesitant knowing that I have no recourse should the battery fail at 18 months, which is even more punishing because verizon/att are scrapping their 20 month upgrade renewals and pushing it even further to 24 months.

    Why be wasteful? Because you can? Wouldn't it be smarter to keep your battery as healthy as you can for as long as you can? You change the oil in your car right? It's the same idea.

    I just called HTC. They confirmed that they do cover the battery and it can be found within the paper work of your phone's warranty. (12 months from the date it was bought.)
