This I tend to see a LOT of. It’s rarely the battery itself that’s faulty.
So,how do I fix it?
Depends a bit on what’s causing it. But, the following list is the most common reasons
- Too many apps/games installed. Many of them badly written
- Apps running all the time. As in a badly written app. Uses too much resources.
- Phone recently updated to a newer version without doing a factory reset.
Too many apps/games installed
Try reducing the number of apps/games installed. And the type of apps/games installed. If it doesn’t help: Factory reset and be a little careful with what you install.
Apps running all the time
Remove the apps causing it. Be a little careful with what you install. If doesn’t help: Factory reset.
Can it be the actual battery?
Yes it can, but it’s very rare in a phone that’s less than 3 years. But, after a while (like 2-3 years) you simply wear out the battery. My Desire lasted around 3 years on the battery that it came with.
Phone recently updated
Do a factory reset, as that is a known “cure” for having problems around a major update. And: Android 4.2 and above might take a week or so to be stable when it comes to battery, you can’t judge battery life from a single day.
Using the phone a LOT on 4G or playing for hours
Then you need to bring a charger with you or have a battery bank, since that will simply use a LOT of battery. It’s just how it is. Use it less, or be prepared for it.
But, all HTC phones got bad battery life!
No, simple NO. That’s a rumour that doesn’t have much merit behind it. Sure, some phones will have a somewhat less than perfect battery life, but that is for ALL makers and just not htc.
Of course there’s other reasons as well, this is just a starting point. You have the DQTG as well to help you in this.
