    Is anyone else having battery issues with there HTC 8S. I got mine on Saturday and I dont seem to get any life what so ever out of the battery.

    I did an experiment last night I charged to 100% before going to sleep turn off everything and airplane mode on and when I woke up 7 hours later it was already dead.

    I'm gonna return it for another one of the same model hopefully I just got a dud but how much life are other users getting out of there battery.

    I suggest you not to set airplane mode...It make few difference.

    Go to configuration, Battery saver, turn it on, go to advanced, and set ALLWAYS. It will make battery last about 2-4 days. Mine can do that.

    Using "allways on" battery saver none programs runs at background, no programs will update anything that need GPRS conection, but everything will keep working, than, if you need to update anything, all yuou have to do is set update manually. Easy and, for me, enought.

    Hope it help. Tell us later.

    Best regards,
    Claudio Brito

    not really an option I need live email updates from my phone as part of my job

    I'll just drop it back I'm not getting 5 hours without needing to charge with limited use (only using it to check emails and texts) if your getting 2-4 days without saving on I should be at least getting 12 hours. I'm guessing I've just got a knackered battery.

    Ive has my 8s for about a week now. I have also had significant battery problems. Firstly charged it before going to bed. No use overnight to find it dead in the morning. Next tried charging it overnight, started using it about 9am. Set the "always" setting for battery saver. I only sent a few texts, and checked Facebook and email a few times. You have to update these manually using these battery settings. 6pm the phone died completely. No warning just switched off. I am going to return the phone and hope its just faulty. I have also heard that this is a 'bug' with all new windows 8 phones, so lets hope theres an update to rectify this. Shame really because otherwise its a nice phone.

    I have everything on, no battery saver and it last for more then a day (never go below 30%). I never charge it to 100% just leave it on the carger for 1-2 hours and thats it. I check email/fb frequently plus listening a ton of music.
