Hi!

I'm new on this forum and YES I've read many threads about this problem with HOX, but I haven't found really something useful that have worked. I bought my HOX last week from a reseller so I don't got any guarantee on it. I wanted a HTC for the beats audio and the performance in this phone, but I had no clue about the battery prob, and this disturbs me alot.

When I'm playing a game on my phone it drains the battery from 80% to maybe 50% in 15-20 minutes and that's really disturbing. I've calibrated my battery that I read on this forum and it helped the phone a bit but not much..

Today when I surfed the internet I had 21% and i surfed maybe 10 mins and then it was 5%. I can't really figure this out why it's like this, I've read on the forums that it's maybe something with the Tegra 3 chip but does that problem still exist if i got Android 4.2.2?

I've thaught on installing a CustomROM to help my batterylife, so could you give me some examples and does my beatsaudio function still work if I install a new rom?

Thanks in advance and I hope you can help me with this!

Regards, Christoffer

if you're going on a custom rom.. its definately better compared to a bone stock rom.. but if you're going for a sense 5 rom.. don't expect too much.. maybe 10% increase?.. for some reason i just find the old sense 4 roms better in terms of battery and stability.. just my opinion though..
