There are many factors that inform our choice of mobile device. Whether it’s picking a smartphone with a big screen for graphics, or an environmentally-friendly mobile, there’s an overwhelming selection to choose from.
But perhaps the most important factor is a mobile device’s battery life. So here’s is a quick rundown of the smartphones that last a little longer.
Apple iPhone X
There is little doubt that Apple’s stylish iPhone X managed to pick up the top accolades for being the best smartphone of last year.
And whilst the device’s facial recognition technology and newly configured screen caught many people’s attention, it looked like the iPhone X managed to also improve on its predecessors’ battery lives.
The iPhone X is kitted out with a 2716mAh battery that should last a good eighteen hours per day. Thanks to the relatively efficient OLED screen, it means that the new Apple smartphone should be able to last a full day of heavy use and help the company put their recent battery embarrassments behind them.
Samsung Galaxy S8 Plus
This Korean brand has consistently rivalled Apple for producing excellent smartphones. And the Samsung Galaxy S8 Plus certainly manages to hold its own against the iPhone X with a very respectable eighteen hour battery life.
The Galaxy S8 Plus has a 3000mAh battery that could possibly have been larger were it not for the Galaxy Note 7 battery fiasco of last year. But with a full day’s use without running out of juice, it should help Samsung retain their title of being the world’s most popular smartphone manufacturer.
Motorola Moto Z Play
Whilst Samsung and Apple compete to provide us with expensive smartphones with increasingly sophisticated features, a few companies have released mid-level mobiles that might not include the most futuristic specs, but they more than make up for it with some impressive battery stats.
This is certainly the case with the Motorola Moto Z Play. Although Motorola have struggled to compete with bigger brands, their Moto Z Play smartphone managed to clock up an incredible 23 hours of battery life.
We tested the Moto Z Play with some more battery-intensive tasks like playing virtual sports online on Betway, and it seems that Motorola have given us one of the best smartphone batteries so far.
Huawei Mate 10
This Chinese brand have been receiving plenty of acclaim for their excellent smartphones that are delivered at a very competitive price point.
And true to form, the Huawei Mate 10 was released last October, and it quickly picked up many commendable reviews for its 18:9 FullView display, water-resistant construction and its long-lasting battery.
With its massive 4000mAh battery cell able to last well over twenty hours, it looks like Huawei have given us one of the longest-lasting smartphones on the market. And with a speedy charging-up time, it shows that Huawei are taking their mobiles’ batteries very seriously.
However, if you are looking for a smartphone that can last well over two days, then the Lenovo P2 would be well worth tracking down.
Whilst the Chinese tech manufacturer have struggled to keep up with their competitors, their Lenovo P2 smartphone features a huge 5,100mAh battery cell that was accompanied by claims that it could last up to three days without needing recharging.
And with a very handy battery saver mode, it once again shows how some smartphone manufacturers are making battery life their main selling point.
And finally, we’re taking a look at the Google Pixel smartphone. Unfortunately this device has been blighted with many reports of users suffering from battery drain problems.
Although the device can be charged up to seven hours of usage after just fifteen minute’s charging, with most users only getting less than a day’s use out of the smartphone, it seems that Google Pixel’s 2,770mAh battery struggled with the competition.
