Among the upgrades are a more powerful processor, double the amount of internal storage and an update to the Android operating system, running the Jellybean version out of the box. The device also has an upgraded battery to cope with the extra demand of the processor and its 4.7 inch HD screen. Rather than the 1800mAh battery of the HTC One X, this new version packs a larger battery with a 2100mAh capacity.
In order to find out how much of a difference the battery makes, GSM Arena has carried out a battery test on the HTC One X+. The test is split into three parts, to determine how the handset performs when it comes to making phone calls, browsing the internet and playing videos.
The first part of the test determines how long you can carry out a phone call for over a 3G connection on a single charge. An impressive 13 hours and 31 minutes was clocked up. Because the extra processing power isn’t really used for this task, the higher battery capacity simply equates to longer talk time.
The HTC One X+ also performed well at web browsing. With a single charge, a respectable 8 hours was clocked up, which nearly doubles the 4 hours 18mins achieved by its predecessor, the HTC One X. Find the best HTC One X+ Deals and compare HTC One X Contract Prices.
The final part of the test determines how long the phone can play video footage for on a single charge. Because this task requires a lot of involvement from the processor, and demands more battery power from the screen, the battery must be up to the task. An impressive 8 hours and 11 minutes of video playback was achieved on a full charge of the HTC One X+, outdoing the majority of competing handsets.
The single full charge should see excellent performance from the battery for the vast majority of users based on average use. Unless you are planning to watch movies all day or download lots of data, the battery capacity of the HTC One X+ should be more than up to the task.
