On the HTC M7 running Sense 6, how much battery life will you get when using Extreme Power Saving mode? I do not know.

I never tested it, only the normal power saver.
However, extreme power saving disables everything and only leaves functions like Phone, SMS and no internet during screen off - it'll last long. HTC claims a few hours even when on 15%.

contacted HTC Support and they told me to run a "Battery test" and to "wipe cache partition" from stock recovery. The battery test was ok and cleared cache, now waiting for the battery to drop to test it again..

In the dialer type this: *#*#3424#*#* click "more" and you'll have a "battery test" option, to test it you will need to have the battery fully charged and the phone on airplane mode.
