Adventures in Battery Problems - Part 1

Part of the problem with Android is the battery life generally leaves something to be desired. In my iPhone review, I stated that one of the features I liked best about my iPhone was the crazy good battery life. So far living with the HTC One X has been a nightmare as far as battery life is concerned. I was barely getting half a day of use with just under 4 hours of screen time before the battery was totally dead. Even more troubling, the phone draws so much power while in use that if you use it while plugged in the battery can barely charge.

This is part 1 of my struggle to get the HTC One X to last an entire day.

Battery issues post coming soon!!

Work has kept me extremely busy as of late so I haven't been able to contribute to my blog as often as I would like. I'm working on an extended post about battery issues with the phone. I hope to have that available no later than this weekend.

Thanks for your patience!

Running with Android Part 1

So, I went running today with my HTC One X. I hurt my shoulder about two weeks ago and I haven't been on a long run for a while. I only went a quick 2k and walked home. The lighter weight was really great. I know it's only 10 grams lighter than my iPhone (plus whatever the case weighs) but I could really notice a difference. It may have also been the larger size prevented the phone from slinging around in my pocket. On the downside, I was very concerned about sweat getting into the phone. I'm not sure why, but I just never cared about that with my iPhone as I just assumed it would live through it. Maybe it's because of the iPhone is mostly made of glass instead of soft plastic. Not that I don't like the soft plastic, but I'm worried about sweat ruining it.

VIDEO: This old iPhone!

Watch "Episode 1 - This old iPhone 4" on YouTube

In this video I discuss things I like and things I dislike about my iPhone 4. The intent is to show where I'm coming from as a smart phone user.
