There was resetting the phone, which also freed up a lot of space on my 8 GB phone. And then there was turning off a Google+ feature. Now photos on my phone only get uploaded online when the phone is on wifi and when the phone is connected to a charger.
The auto upload feature is why Google+ is my top choice for photo upload and sharing. But that was also draining my battery.
Now my phone feels more normal. So much so that I still want a OnePlus One phone, but I am not in a desperate hurry.
My external battery clocks at 10,000 mAh. That is what I carry. So it is like carrying two phones. But it's worth it for the peace of mind that my phone will quite literally never run out of juice during the course of the day. When your smartphone is your personal assistant, you tend to use it with some intensity.
I am thinking a 5,000 mAh inside a phone might finally do the trick.
Another reason not to be in a big hurry for the One is the idea of actually being with people when you are with them. Face time is also good for the phone battery.
