Speaking of GPS its pretty damn good! I get 7-9 fixes inside my livingroom surrounded by concrete walls and some windows.

Battery on this thing is good but I really pray HTC does releases future firmwares that improve the battery anyways.

Cheers
Nice. Out of that 2h 33m screen time how much was it actually sufing internet on 3G?

Well I left 3G/Mobile data on the entire time so stuff like skype were running and viber as well.

Actual surfing time I honestly dont know since the use was sporadical I would say maybe 1 hour? maybe 50 min? I am not sure but quite alot anyways.
Unfortunately it doesnt show something like 'Surfing 3G' so again no clue, but next time I do another more proper 3G test ill measure the surfing time myself.

Cheers!

I'm having a similar experience as you johnny. I've made it 2 full days with medium usage and have a few screen shots of 20+ hours where I used mainly wi-fi but surfed and played with the phone quite often. I feel bad for people having issues but I have seen numerous phones that just needed a reboot to fix the problem.

Just wanna share some info of an 'experiment' I am currently trying out.

My phone is rooted but running stock, and I have SetCPU and set it on Min 51 MHz and Max 1000 MHz from a fully charged battery, just curious to see if it will make any difference at all.

I noticed when I had SetCPU installed but not 'running' when I went in to the Info - Time in State and I noticed that 1.4Ghz and 1.2 Ghz was used ALOT according to the graph, and I have NOT played any games at all, just surfed,played movies, listened to music but nothing that requires 1.4GHz ,1.5GHz power.

We will see if it makes any difference as I said

Cheers!

Will post the images when the batteries run out.

The S4 based One XL smokes the Teg3 based One X. Not surpising considering S4 is 28nm and a much more modern and efficient design. And this guys only on his second charging cycle so it'll get better.

I wouldn't say the XL smoked the international version. Its only better under heavy usage. The international version is still better under standby. If you are light user the tegra3 version will end up much better because of power saving companion core.

Not to be a smartass, but if I didn't use my phone I wouldn't need a quad-core, ICS-based, 4.7" SLCD2 smartphone would I? Owning the title of "best battery life when not used" isn't really a big win. I'm sure like most people I just want a full days use out of it (12-15 hours) without having to ration how much I use the display. Don't misunderstand, I'm not bitching. I'm fine with what I'm getting. But let's be honest, for people that consider battery life a hot button (and use their phones) the S4 chipped One XL seems to be a better choice.

The big caveat being that both phones are being used over HSPA. Turn on LTE and you'll be able to watch the battery on the One XL drain in real time. At least that's the way it has been with other LTE phones.

LOL at this, one they have figured out how to implement power saver function so you can for instance to temporarily (Similar to what we have on our Asus Primes) disable 2 cores when we do not need all four of them running at the same time then your S4 wont even come close to the Tegra version.

This is apart from the fact that I've seen here on this thread people getting 4 to 6 screen time.

I myself hit 4.30 not very long ago.

Bye bye dual core Hello Quad-Core yeeeHAAA!

Fair enough. But it depends alot on usage pattern between each individual. Heavy user will be more comfortable with the xl no doubt.

LTE drain on the new qualcomm chip is still a big unknown at the moment. Alot depends on the actual throughput. The radio eats up more current than hspa but also finishes loading a web page much faster and switches to standby. So in practice when using a lightly loaded lte network compared to a congested hspa network, it may end up being better.

I think the best thing we can do guys are the following

See what bugs and issues got fixed on the Asus Prime via OTA

See on Average if HTC have fixed bugs with their older phones that had the same problem the One X is having, such as screen flicker, camera and video performance etc.

Then at least we can have hope if the Asus Prime had similar problems or some older HTC phones did.

and if the bugs and issues that got fixed on these devices, and were similar to HTC One X bugs and issues, we can hope


Top reliable phones I have had: HTC One. LG G2, Nexus 4, Note 2, Nokia 5800, Motorola RAZR V3X, Motorola RAZR i, Nexus 5 Had many more, but these devices were the best IMO.

Current Phone: HTC One M8

Press THANKS if i helped you, it's nice knowing when you have helped somebody out
