So many tablets and smartphones are released each year and all seem to focus on which have the best camera, the coolest design, the flashiest screen resolution. Yet, what doesn’t seem to get enough attention is which devices have the best battery life? After all, what use is having the flashiest device if it’s always out of battery?
So, w’eve done some digging to pull out those devices you can rely on for a good long gaming session on the move, without being tethered into the wall!
- Asus ZenPad 8
The Asus ZenPad 8 comes with an 8-inch screen, 1280 x 800 pixel resolution and runs on a 1.4GHz octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 615 processor with 2GB of RAM.
It also features an 8-mega pixel camera on the back with a 2-mega pixel camera to the front for those lengthy video calls.
Powering the device is a 4,000mAh Li-Po battery. Asus claims this to be easily be enough for a good 8 hours usage, by which time its probably time you stretched your legs anyway!
And, if that isn’t enough, Asus also offer a ZenPad power case, which adds a whopping 16 hours battery life to the tablet! Great for any long flights! (We’ve covered some of the best places you can see here).
- Huawei MediaPad M3
Huawei are a Chinese brand that have been trying to live up to the bigger players for a while now. They have produced some smart looking tech at a pleasantly affordable price and the MediaPad lives up to this as well. It doesn’t scream sheer power, but it’s a very functional device at price point that makes this perfectly acceptable.
The MediaPad M3 holds an 8 mega pixel camera, running on 4GB of RAM over an octa-core CPU and Hisilicon Kirin 950 chipset. The 8.4 inch screen runs at a high resolution of 1600 x 2560 pixels, which was never going to help the length of the battery life. But, thanks to the 5100mAh Li-Po battery should still get a good 7.5 to 8 hours play time, according to TechRadar.com.
- Lenovo Yoga Book
The Lenovo Yoga Book is an impressively stylish device. Yet, along with the good looks it packs enough power and charge to be a great on the go productivity device.
The device comes with a stylus, great for sketching, whilst the 8500mAh battery is claimed by Lenovo to give a 12 hour run time from a full charge. Plenty of time to make a start on your masterpiece!
- Amazon Fire HD 8
The camera on the Amazon Fire HD 8 isn’t fantastic and it won’t have you playing high powered games. But the Amazon Fire is a reading device and, used as intended, will get you plenty of book time. And, even better, it comes in at a pleasurably low price! You could buy a stack at that rate if you wanted!
- Apple iPad Pro 10.5 inch
The Apple iPad Pro 10.5 inch is by no means cheap! But sure does pack a punch! Its got fast usability you’re used to with a familiarity that allows you to feel right at home straight of the box, whilst the battery will grab you over 10.5 hours of play time! This one takes the cake for us!
