I know this has been discussed in prior threads but I wanted to see if there are any other suggestions to help with battery life.

New to HTC One and on my third day, my battery life yesterday was not bad, was able to get through the day without charging however, was limited on usage so not sure if this is normal.

Today I am almost 6 hours of usage in and I'm already down to 40%, again with minimal usage.

Any suggestions to improve this?

I also have GSam battery monitor installed.

Thanks

What network are you on? How is your cell phone reception? Are you connected to WiFi or 4G LTE? Do you have all your radios on like bluetooth, WiFi, or 4G? Are you using the WiFi optimization setting? Did you set your to never keep WiFi on when the phone sleeps? Under power settings is sleep mode enabled to cut off data
connection during long periods of inactivity?

There are lots of things that play into battery life. If GSAM isn't showing your phone not sleeping or a bad app you have to take into consideration everything I asked. And you should definitely read through the entire battery thread.

Look at the held awake time. It should be relatively low. Also, look at what apps if any are using the most battery.

Also, I don't leave all my radios on. I leave on only the radio I'm using. And if I forget to turn off a radio myradio goes to sleep. Radios being enabled will use up battery life even if they aren't doing anything. If they are sending/receiving data then the battery will take a hit depending on the amount of data.

Take a look at this, after going through the process of removing cache, here's my current battery life the next day.

So I've had my Verizon M8 for about 2 months now. I returned my first M8 after about a week because the microphone unexpectedly quit, but Best Buy replaced it with another brand new one and I've had no issues since. I am curious to see how well everyone's batteries are holding a charge now that most of us have had the phone for a couple months. ☺

I must say, this phone has the best battery life out of any smartphone I've owned to date. I'm a relatively heavy user (~4 hours screen time per day, sometimes more, and I listen to music for several hours per day). Currently sitting at 18% after 16h 25m. My 2-month-old phone still seems to hold a charge as well as it did when it came out of the box, and no issues after the 4.4.3 OTA.

Somewhat off topic, but I really must say that HTC did an excellent job with this gem. I've never been so satisfied with an electronic device.
