XDA is about developing and is for developers. Any user that recognizes that will gain the most benefit from this site


 
This is and always will be a site for developers, pure and simple. Without them we are nothing, without them there would be no reason for XDA Developers to exist; we should never ever forget that. Without them this place would not be called XDA-Developers but something else, e.g Mobile Phone User Support Services For Ungrateful Nerds.

About battery I wonder if there will be a way to replace it once warranty is over. Because I'm really concerned of battery longevity. I mean, after two years of intensive use its life will decrease quite a lot so does the current design may allow some not too hard replacement ?

Am not a big fan of portable chargers, I fear from it to load the battery not at the right current speed, making it last fewer on the long term... I'm probably wrong though

i am using the new trent 11000 mAh portable charger for my phones and its a beast. charges up my nexus s 6x before dying. Only downside is that it only charges one device at a time.

I have ordered one (delivery tomorrow). Looking forward to not having to keep watch on my battery level when out and about and charging my phone/tablet where I want to rather than being limited by where sockets are

Update - My New Trent iCruiser IMP1000 turned up on Friday and I gave it a full charge. So far I have recharged my MP3 player and my One X and the Trent still shows as full. This beast is brilliant! I can also charge my Prime and Sony Smart Watch (when it arrives). I might use it to charge the PS3 pad that I use with my Prime too. 1 charger for 5 items so far is ace!

The best portable charger is the PowerGen. look it up on amazon it charges my android twice and my ipod twice before it drains. I think its 5400 mah. Its also cheap like 30-50$
samsung infuse 4g> HTC Vivid> Samsung GS2> GS2 Skyrocket> HTC ONE X!!! Brand new!

Just got a One x!!

had similar thoughts as well before and after buying the phone. Portable chargers can help but when the phone can only hold <50% of its original capacity, so you gotta charge it always as it will die(used up the battery) quite often
