I've never placed much reliance on what specs GSM Arena post.  I've found their information quite suspect in the past.

Brad, you're right about the battery life with Best Performance enabled on WiFi, it even warns you under the heading for the settting.

Oh no I was referring to the battery life with Wi-Fi performance turned on.

.


Is that switched on default?


No you have to turn it on under Wi-Fi > Advanced settings. I'd recommend against it.

bradstewart: 

Under Wi-fi > Advanced  do you have 'Best Wi-Fi performance' checked? That does unspeakable brutal things to your battery.

With that checked I go from 30 hours and 4-5hours screen time to about 15 hours if I'm lucky.


Nah thats not checked.

While in there I set wifi to only on when plugged in when on standby. See if that helps. (altho I think with battery saver on its doing that anyway eh?)

No, it's not out yet.

The specs are out. That's all.

It has in fact leaked and there are flashable ROMS over at Xda in the form of TrickDroid and ARHD. Not that I would recommend such a thing of course Tongue Out

bradstewart: I also just realised and I can't believe I missed since I even posted a photo of the bootloader back on April 30, this but the review units we got have S-Off.


Yes, I noticed that and was disappointed to see mine is s-on. No matter, seems I'm in the majority.

Who has rooted their HTC One here?

Was thinking on maybe doing it to get 4.2.2...

I've finished up all my blog posts so free root and play.

I'm now running 4.2.2 and it is good!

I've rooted mine. You do lose a couple of apps if you didn't know. Flashlight, calculator and a couple of others. But I'm not too concerned. 

What I would like to know though, is that there were some early reports that if you root, because of losing these apps, you can no longer get OTA updates. Does anyone know if this is/ever was the case?

I use Facebook Messenger (with the Chat Heads) quite heavily and find every now and then my messages won't send.. it one case it arrived about 36 hours later, just now they disappeared from the convo completely without sending, but usually they will show for me but not have sent (an easy way to tell is going to the list of conversations and the last message won't be what you said). Tied with this is quite often when trying to send pictures it will fail for no apparent reason..

Anybody else experienced this at all? Didn't have any problems on my S2 that I can recall..

I have just got a Note 8.0 and will need to get a new MHL cable as it is not compatible with the one I have for my HTC phones (One and One X). If I get one of the new (11 pin?) MHL cables that is compatible with the S3, Note2, Note 8.0 etc will it still work on my HTC One?
NB: I have also asked this question in the Samung Galaxy Note 8.0 forum.

No, you need a 5-pin MHL cable for the One, an 11-pin cable won't work.

You can get an adapter for 5-pin MHL cables so that they can be used with 11-pin devices, probably the cheapest way to go.

I warned about this several times early on. Yes unlocking the bootloader will (for now) prevent you from getting OTA updates.

However S-Off and Super CID won't be far away meaning you'll be able to flash an RUU if a Telecom/VF/Optus one finds its way onto the net and return your phone to its factory state.

Sure, but nunasdream said "Nothing showing up for me yet" so I assume he's talking about the official one.

Some very nice changes in 4.2 I've found so far.

- The well publicised option to map long press Home as menu ( this will remove the annoying black bar).
- Pressing back on the BlinkFeed screen will take you back to the top
- New services added to BlinkFeed including Instagram
- Overall responsiveness is vastly improved
- Quick toggles panel. Standard for 4.2 but they've skinned it very nicely and also added a 3 dot icon on most of the toggles to go to settings for that item.
- Some improvements to the handling of dock icons.
- Vastly improved keyboard. 100% more accurate.

If anyone is interested in downloading it, then it is available for download here: http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=2224752 That has options for odexed and deodexed. If you pick the Odexed one and flash back the stock recovery afterwards you will be able to get WWE OTA updates.
