I have M7, M8, M9. GSam says they all drain about 1.6 to 2.5 pct./hr the way I use them daily. I get 2 days use from all of them. Currently replacing my M7 with M9 but just making sure about M9 before I give M7 away. I do a few phone calls, check 5 email accounts, surf the web a couple hours per day. Bluetooth and Wifi combined about 5 hours per day. No Facebook but do have Twitter and use Blinkfeed all 3. I have not had any heating issues (GSM unlocked version). No hotter than M7 or M8 imo. What is interesting is they all drain about 1.5% per hour when not in use. That tells me sd810 isn't sucking power when phone is not used. M7 and M8 on KitKat still because I am convinced that Lollipop is the power sucker. Read reviews of Sammy S6 battery dies quicker than M9. Read user opinions that Lollipop 5.0.x has ruined their M8 battery experience. So M9 running 5.0.x is doing good when compared to others. I am convinced we all need 5.1.x before we see true battery performance on ANY Lollipop phone. Cameras are fine - don't believe all the FUD being spread around. If you doubt then cash buy from HTC and they will give you 30 days refund policy but after two weeks I am definitely keeping my M9.
I also do not use vibrate for touch feedback and have power save set to "put data connection to sleep when screen is off"
P.S. I also have GSM iPhone 4s and 5s (work phones) and they last about 40 hours with nearly the same SOT. My collegues that got new iphone 6 have poor battery life and those that got 6+ have good battery life.
Can i exchange the mobile if it is damaged with in 2 months of purcahse
Hi, recently upgraded from the M8 and have been using the M9 phone for almost 2 weeks now. Camera vastly improved following the software update and I can say battery life has been slightly better than the one m8 and easily gets me though a day. I was worried as the online reviews weren't great however this is a great phone and I haven’t had any noticeable heating issues. If you have an M8, the M9 isn’t going to change your life but it is an improvement across the board on last years model.

Is it just me or other people's m9's camera got absurdly better..?? Yesterday's update phenomenally improved the camera.. Digital noise is negligible now.. Lens flares are a thing of the past.. I mean looks like it was only a software problem..
most people seem to be very impressed when they see this phone in hand, definitely eye catching, and certainly fast enough, great upgrade from M7.
OH WOW HTC,
why you don't think about "sharp igzo display" or S-LCD4 or S-LCD5 with quantum dot tech.? huh
