Update: A system update just came out and it claims longer battery life, so I will have to test again…
My HTC Sensation looks like it will probably have a battery life of 1.5 days for me before it hit 9% battery. I have heard that even though it boasts That is less than I hoped. I was hoping for two days, so I would only have to plug it in every other evening. Maybe 9% would last me till tonight, but I doubt it.
A few notes on this 1.5 days.
- I used my HTC Sensation for browsing the web for a good 45 minutes straight in the evening, so maybe I used more battery life than normal last night.
- I was on the phone no more than 10 minutes
- I made sure to keep all services, GPS, Wi-fi, etc., off during most of this time as I am fine turning them on when I use them.
So I also may have used less battery than some who must have these services enabled all the time.
I hoped that since I turned off these services, I would get much more than two days, even with good hour of use at some point during that span. But alas, the HTC Sensation Battery Life meets the low expectations I’ve heard from others. I have already bought a car charger (well, actually I bought an iGo tip to go with my iGo Car Charger) and I will certainly buy a an extra charger to have at my desk at work as well.
