List of smartphones with longest battery life

We all know that having a feature-packed smartphone means nothing if it has poor battery life that won’t last a day without being plugged in. If you’re out looking to upgrade your handset with great battery performance, you might want to check out this list of smartphones with the biggest batteries.

smartphones with longest battery life

The devices are ranked by FindTheBest according to their battery size and overall battery performance. As seen above, the phablet Samsung Galaxy Note 3 tops the chart with its 3200mAh battery despite its big display which should consume more juice. Falling in second place is LG G2 followed by the Galaxy S5 and Galaxy S4, with the iPhone 5s tailing the list.

One thing that we can conclude from this graph is that Android smartphones are better in conserving battery with its power-saving apps, both embedded and downloaded; and that battery performance from Windows and Apple phones are far cries compared to Android devices.

So again, if you’re on the prowl for a device that could work for long hours without the help of power banks then hopefully this graph would help.

Update: The source states that the data was derived not only from battery capacities but also from performance benchmarks that include specs of each device. Experiences from different testers were also taken into account.

* Data from manufacturer and carrier websites. Ratings from CNET, LAPTOP Mag, PC Mag, PC World, and WIRED. Performance benchmarks from Geekbench, DxOMark, and Rightware.

    This just prove how biased yugatech are, ni hindi nga sila nagpost ng news na lumabas yung WP 8.1 Developer preview, eh yung mga major tech news site may nilabas sila na article.

    • Reverie says:

      Clearly, this is not misleading but just a spinned article. That’s why a source is given in the bottom.

  5. Lantis says:

    BIAS talaga ang yugatech. Yung Sony Xperia Z1 hindi nila isinama. Yung xperia Z lang ang nilagay.

  6. hans says:

    Lenovo P780. 4200maH. Maybe, Lenovo didn’t pay their share to Yugatech that’s why thisSP (smartphone) didn’t make to Yugatech’s list. OR the writer is a neo.
