Day 3 with my One, battery life graph for today(off the charger at 100%/ 9am, back on at 5:27/ 31%). This is my typical usage for a day.



So far I love it(coming from a GS3), Happy that HTC will get the 4.2 update rolling in a couple of weeks, Sense have been pretty good except for the lackluster Battery stat info (reason why I am now running Gsam).

Battery isn't too bad for being only 2300mah, your screen on time wasn't high, but I bet you could easily squeeze 3hrs screen on time in at a minimum 15 hrs total battery time. More if your on Wi-Fi all day.

Surprised that HTC put a new battery stats application on there... But agree that you could do some tweaking (like me) to make it last much longer...
8 and a half hours with more than 2/3rds battery gone with only 1.5 hours screen time seems like it's pushing it to last throughout the workday and commute time for me...
I charge my Galaxy S4 every other day...

Samsung has announced its new Galaxy S 4 topped 10 million units sold in record time. That beats the 50 days it took the Galaxy S III to sell that many, a mark it took 5 months for the Galaxy S II to pass and 7 months for the original Galaxy S.

Interesting that the S4 is selling really well, although the HTC One is thoroughly winning this poll... Geeks here don't go by the gimmicks on the S4 I guess... thinking.gif
I know the poll started even before the S4 was released, and I actually voted for the HTC One on the poll... but the numbers stretched further apart even after the S4 was released...

I also hate to see good companies (especially ones that step outside the box for something different) on their downfall... but this doesn't look good for the ones who purchase phones and want to keep value from HTC... or plan to re-sell their phones in the future...

Maybe HTC has "brand loyalty" in the same way Apple does? As I have said before here in the UK the One is more expensive than the S4 so if I was going to buy either I would want to see the One offer significant advantages over the S4 and I simply can't see that. Since I always buy my phones I see the fact that I couldn't get the back off the One as a major disadvantage, effectively barring me access to my own property as with the Iphone. I wouldn't buy a house with no back door.

Not sure what new HTC battery stat application you are talking about, the graphs I was showing in that post are from Gsam battery monitor, a third party app.

The Battery stat graphs in Sense looks like this(not on the same day as the GSam graph I shown before):


Granted I am running the screen much brighter(70% on a 459 nits screen) than HTC default(50%) or S4 default( 50% on a 319 nits screen). If I turn down the brightness to default I could get more screen time. Brightness numbers from Anandtech's review.

I actually voted for the GS4 back in March, but after examining my needs( brighter, more visible screen under sunlight + better speakers for video playback & speak phone calls) I changed my mind and bought the One instead, the Aluminium uni-body is just a bonus.

Thanks for the clarification^^^ And do agree that it is a lot harder to see the AMOLED screen with direct daylight... Just walked outside for lunch, and it's difficult to read in daylight with sunglasses on...

Glad to see you are enjoying the HTC One to your liking... thumb.gif

On Amazon UK the 16GB S4 is £535, the 32GB HTC One is £490.

I got the One simply because the S4 wasn't released at the time. Either way, I'd be extremely happy with either phone. The differences are so minute that it's pointless trying to argue which one is the superior phone.

I stand corrected - I just checked on Carphone Warehouse and the S4 IS more expensive than the One, and yet I posted on this forum awhile ago and the figures were the other way round though not at CW - Phones4U I think?
post #579 of 839
I just got my Verizon Wireless Galaxy S4 yesterday.

While my time with it has been brief, I have been very impressed with the device overall.

First, the screen is GORGEOUS!!! I thought my wife's Note 2 had an awesome screen. The new AMOLED display on the S4 is in a league all on it's own, though. Text is just awe-inspiring. Video is absolutely beautiful. The colors are rich, vibrant, and pop. It's not over-saturated like AMOLED screens of old. The color is actually believable and beautiful...It is stunning! drool.gif

Second, this phone is so powerful compared to my old Droid X2. All games that I've played so far have played perfectly and without stutter. On all benchmarks, this device is at the top of it's class. Browsermark says it's faster than 98% of other smartphones out there... and amazingly, when running the desktop version, it says it's faster than 13% of desktops. I got a chuckle out of that. tongue.gif I've tried slowing this phone down, and I simply cannot. It is snappy about 95% of the time, and for me, that's perfect.

Third, this phone is very light... crazy light. The otterbox I put on it took care of that issue. wink.gif

Fourth, from what I can tell, battery life is very good. I can flog this thing hard, and it will easily outlast my old Droid X2 on battery life. Unfortunately, my wife's Note 2 is still the king when it comes to battery life.



Cons:

Lots of useless gimmicks. I tried using them, and it's apparent that the stuff that uses your eyes and gestures for motion still need some work (or I'm just doing it wrong)
The plastic does look cheap when compared to metal phones. However, since it's in an Otterbox, it doesn't really bother me.
There is a learning curve, but I'm getting used to it very quickly.


Overall, the S4 is a stellar phone. I like it better than the HTC One, but I will concede that both phones are amazing. Choose one and be happy. I'm definitely happy with my S4. thumb.gif
