Battery Life on the HTC 10- Sprint Product Ambassadors

Sprint Product Ambassador

Today, we use our devices for nearly everything… calls, messages, streaming music, video, navigation, etc.  Battery life is a top priority.  HTC gets that, and they built in phenomenal battery life into the HTC 10.

I have been using the HTC 10 for a little over a month now, and can honestly say the battery life on the HTC 10 is the strongest I’ve had to date, and I’ve used a lot of devices over the years. The HTC 10 was engineered to provide up to two days of normal use for a battery. 

The HTC 10 has a new PowerBotics system, which enhances hardware and software efficiency, providing up to 30% longer battery life. It also comes with a Quick Charge 3.0 Rapid Charger. This can give you up to 50% charge in only 30 minutes, and the HTC 10 keeps cool while the battery is charging as well.

The included cable has changed to USB Type C. I recommend you use the cable and charger that comes with your device to yield maximum charging results. My favorite thing about USB Type C is that it is reversible.  It does not matter which side is inputted into the port (unlike the micro USB cable).

That being said, you might have a lot of old chargers around your house and in your car that work with micro USB.  You can buy a micro USB to Type C adapter, but it will slow the charging speed to charge your device.  I purchased a few micro USB to Type C tips, and use them with my car chargers. It was a convenient and affordable solution.  However, when I use the cable and charger provided, the charging speed increases significantly.

HTC has listed the following tips in their Q&A to ensure battery life:

  • In the Settings app, go to Power > Battery usage or History to see the details of different apps' battery consumption patterns.
  • Use the Boost+ app to monitor if there are irregular activities on your phone that have been handled or you need to stop. This app also has a Game battery booster feature that optimizes system resources to save battery life without affecting your gaming experience.
  • When using accessories with a USB Type-C connection, make sure to unplug it from your phone when you are not using it. It will continue to use battery power when it's connected to your phone.
  • You can choose to turn on different battery-saving features on your phone, such as Power saver, Battery optimization, and Extreme power saver.
  • Recharge your phone's battery using the QualcommQuick Charge 3.0 enabled rapid charger that came in the box.


My screenshot above is after several days of use without charging! I am extremely happy with the battery life on the HTC 10. It is noticeably better than all of my other devices.

If battery life is important to you, I suggest you look into buying the HTC 10, which is available for purchase at Sprint.
