I want to get another android phone, i should have got one instead of my iphone cause i loved my evo, but my sister has an upgrade so i'll trade her my iphone for a gs4 as soon as its avalible on sprints employee plan(uncle works there)

Battery from the reviews I've seen are pretty good, can't post link BC I'm on my phone. It'll blow away your iPhone 4s in performance hands down, even over the nexus 7 it'll be somewhat better BC of the more ram and better processor.

So far whatever Apple has been making has been the fastest. All they need is a super high res like the HTC One and then unlike HTC have good battery life, and then everyone will buy the iPhone.

EDIT: Oh I see he wanted an an android phone anyway. But anyway just stating a fact...

What exactly is wrong with HTC One battery life ?

Last I heard it was very nice for such a high end smartphone.

I've read the total opposite.

Your saying the iPhone 4s is faster than the newer android phones out right now, go check your facts before you post again please.

ya that's confusing. Apple has been behind in everything except for the gpu performance where the phone does not value in.

Man... Angry birds at 150 off screen fps. So sexy.



Is 6 to 8 hours of heavy use a bad thing? Do people not live or go anywhere without a charger or a spare battery. And before someone says the battery isn't replaceable, there are mobile battery packs that you can slab in your bag. I can't get 3 hours under heavy use with the s2 but connecting it to a 6000 mah pack when I get to my destination or work is great. Driving long distances we thought a charger is far from the norm these days. As long as the phone gets me through the day that's good.
Isn't it? The one can do that while having one if the best cameras... Solid audio performance, and great portable media between your destinations.

Frankly when all high end phones can't perfect everything I say it all end it comes out to catering to a preference.

I'm dealing with this with my galaxy nexus. I came from a Razr Maxx. I get barely 3 hours of heavy usage on my nexus where I could get 10+ hours of heavy usage on the maxx. I can barely make it 6-8hours on a charge with the nexus where as the maxx would last for an 24+ hours.

I'm not asking any phone to be one extreme or the other. What I prefer is that we get more cases like the new Defender +Ion and the Mophie Juice Packs. So that we can just connect a case that will properly protect the phone but also provide extra battery. Simply because it is tedious for me to carry around an external battery pack or a charger.

lol at Samsung with their ad's and gimmick features. HTC One is the one to get ultimately.
