What happens if you enable power saver mode? I've found that with it enabled, the phone is still plenty fast and I get over 24h battery..

Re: Tired Of my HTC ONE

As an example, my day one(Ordered it the day it was released and have had ever since) HTC One lost 6% within the first hour, so my battery is fine. If yours loses single digit percents, it's fine and you have an app draining your battery.

if you lose more than that, i would recommend RMA'ing to HTC to get a new battery.

My one wasn't that bad but it needed to be plugged in by 3:00pm everyday. Finally decided enough was enough and got a g2 two weeks ago. Awesome battery life. Easily goes two days without a charge and surprise...it doesn't lose any charge overnight while sitting idle unlike the one.

Posting a screenshot of your battery stats would be a lot more helpful if you want us to possibly fix the issue

Re: Tired Of my HTC ONE

I've had my HTC One for almost 1-yr now, and I've never had any battery issues. I normally charge up my phone every night, and unplug it at 4:30 am and go until 5 pm where I still have about 60% charge. Of course, it depends on your own personal usage. I normally have WiFi turned off, and only use BT in my car for about 1 hr a day. I don't do any heavy streaming of music from my cell connection, but I do auto-check my email throughout the day and read the news from different web sites about 4-5 times during the day. I use an app called "Tasker" which automatically turns on/off my WiFi depending if I'm at home or not. GPS is also turned off unless I'm using my Google Maps app.

Can you be more specific?
We can't help you without any more specifics.
How much screen on time are we talking about? Wifi On? Data On? Bluetooth On? Are you playing games?
Install GSam Battery Monitor and post a screenshot.
I can go up to two days with my phone, but it all depends on usage. Especially screen time.

Re: Tired Of my HTC ONE

Again I would prefer some data from an app like GSam. The built-in app does not provide much info.
For example how much screen time was on.
Moreover I see both the wi-fi and 4G icons on.
Do you experience any problems with your wifi? Because under normal conditions if you are connected to wi-fi there should be no 4G icon.

I don't use streaming services like Spotify so I can't comment on how much drain would be normal.

Try the Snapdragon Battery Guru. I've been using that since I've had my One and I regularly get 15-18 hrs out of my One. I use that in addition to the HTC power saving app.

Also, check the polling of your background apps like Facebook and Instagram.. telling them to sync once every hr can cause battery drain.

Android System taking 80% usage is high.. that means you have alot of apps that are waking your device up and polling for data.

So why are both icons present? It's either wi-fi or data.
Also check your wi-fi settings. Google has by default an option turned on, so that wi-fi is still working even if it is off.

Check what apps may be waking your device, location services also etc.
I may seem too much, but there are many things you can do to improve your battery life.
As I said there are some apps that can find the culprit for the drain you are experiencing.
