HTC U battery capacity revealed

HTC U battery capacity revealed

Most of the specs of the HTC U have already been revealed, but another rumor has surfaced which helps fill out the spec sheet a little more. If @LlabTooFer is correct, we now know the battery capacity of the HTC U.

Those disappointed by the HTC U Ultra’s 3,000 mAh battery will likely not be pleased to hear that the HTC U is expected to have the same battery capacity. Since we’ve learned that the HTC U will have a 5.5-inch QHD display, a 3,300 mAh battery seems like it would be more appropriate for the phone’s size.

That being said, the HTC U’s battery life should fare well even if it has a 3,000 mAh cell. Multiple reviews have shown that the U Ultra can make it through a long day on a single charge and the new Samsung Galaxy S8 also has a 3,000 mAh battery, despite the fact that it has a 5.8-inch display.

If the HTC U does come to market with a 3,000 mAh battery, would you buy it? Leave us a comment and let us know how big of a battery you would want to see inside the HTC U.

    It’s ridiculous how bad the battery capacity is in modern phones. I would prefer a big battery that can be replaced in time. What use use is it to have the best phone in the world but with a empty battery.

    It could be 3000 but whats quality. How many times can charge battery before will start to lose capacity. If it is in thousands 3000 is good enough.

    3000mAh? I’d prefer 3300 and a slightly thicker phone that had an audio jack. Please HTC, I don’t want to buy from competition 🙁

    No one want to get through 1 day of use we want 1 day heavy usage & 1 & hard day normal use.

    The Galaxy S8 is 3000 mAh also, lets see how kind the Snapdragon 835 is on the battery before we judge how small it is yeah?

  6. Well, my previous phone was an HTC Rezound. It was shipped with a 1620ma battery. Needless to say that was definitely not enough. They were smart and offered an “Extended Battery” of 2750ma with a new back plate that was better but still not good enough. Third party vendors came out with a 3600ma battery that seemed to fir the bill for the most part but the Rez still consumed a lot. It had a Qualcomm Snapdragon MSM8660 dual core. I was lucky to make it through a day and I am not a heavy user.

    Now I have an HTC M10 which is powered by a 3000ma battery. I was disappointed at first cause it was so small -but- mainly cause it was not removable. With the Marshmallow OS I got decent time on it compared to the Rez but still was not happy.

    Now with the latest OS UpDate, Nougat, I am getting, IMHO, a fantastic amount of time on my battery. If the new “O” OS improves yet again on battery usage then I do believe that a 3000ma battery will suffice most users. Currently mine lasts 2 days. This is another Qualcomm chip but it is a Snapdragon 820 Quad Core. Almost getting a phone more powerful than my PC!!

    My complaint is NOT about the size they are supplying -but- the fact that I can not remove the battery and replace it meself. Both because of replacement and development. There were times in my Rezound usage that I had to Reset/Kill it via a battery removal. Can’t do that with the present one which is another reason I have not done any development work on it. Besides the current stock OS’s are looking good and running very well.
