HTC canceled bigger battery plans for thinner phones

Would you rather have a larger phone with a bigger battery that lasts forever? Or a thin, sleek and sexy phone? This was HTC's question and apparently they decided to shelf the bigger battery plans to compete with the DROID RAZR MAXX and opted for a mild upgrade to the battery. This will enabled them to produce the thin and awesome phones like what we are seeing today in the HTC One X and One S.

Mugen Power 3900 mAh Galaxy Nexus extended battery review

Battery life of smartphones is something we all wish was better. Especially ones like the Samsung Galaxy Nexus with a huge screen and 4G LTE. Last week I had the pleasure to test the Mugen Power extended battery for the Galaxy Nexus coming in at 3900 mAh -- a huge improvement over the stock 1750 mAh battery. I wanted to see if it would last the entire weekend. Read on below for my full results and plenty of pictures.

HTC One X shows NVIDIA’s Tegra 3 is a battery’s best friend

Starting today and all of this week we're getting our first look at the new HTC One series of smartphones. Starting with the NVIDIA Tegra 3 quad-core powered HTC One X, and then the equally impressive One S with the dual-core Qualcomm S4 Krait processor. We've reviewed them both here at Android Community and will link to them below, but what we were impressed with (among many things) was the battery life and conservation.

DROID RAZR MAXX ultimate battery test: 3-day business trip with no charger

Battery life is a problem for all mobile electronics, and Android is no exception. If there's one thing holding the platform back from a hardware perspective, it's the inability for high-powered Android phones to last through a full day without additional charges. There is one exception: the Motorola DROID RAZR MAXX. With its massive 3300mAh battery impressively kept in a housing thinner than 9mm, it's nothing less than the best combination of power, longevity and high-end components of any phone on the market.

Tests show that task killer apps have little to no impact on battery life

Google doesn't like task killers, and they've been steadfastly saying so since the release of Froyo - which, not incidentally, broke functionality for many of them. There are still some hold-outs that claim they're useful for saving the ever-important battery on Android phones, but according to some in-depth research from PCWorld, that just isn't the case. After running the most popular example, Advanced Task Killer, through its paces, the conclusion was that the extra monitoring and other services had almost no effect on the phone's longevity.

HTC Sensation 4G gets twice the battery life with Mugen Power

The HTC Sensation smartphone has been around for a while now. We reviewed the smartphone back in May when it first launched.

Mugen Power has a new battery for the HTC Sensation that is available now.
