A few days ago we posted that, according to HTC and Verizon’s own tests, the HTC One for Windows had significantly better battery life than the Android version.


Windows Phone vs Android

Now a stress test by Slashgear has demonstrated the same fact in commercial devices.

Slashgear had both the HTC One M8 with Windows and the original HTC One M8 with Android, both on Verizon and left both devices overnight on a full charge.
