Android Smartphones Ranked by Battery Life

Android Smartphones Ranked by Battery Life

One of the most important factors when considering a new smartphone is its battery life. And while usage behavior will vary from person to person, there are several ways to create a standard form of measurement.

Higher battery capacity does not always equate to longer battery life. In this chart, we used PC Mark Battery Test to gather the approximated battery life of each of the smartphones included in this list (recent update is April 1, 2017).

* Update: We’re also including phablets and tablets into the list. We will also add our standard video loop test as a secondary data set.

We used PC Mark Battery Test as it is more or less standardized and simulates normal usage behavior like web browsing, photo and video playback, gaming and file manipulation. The resulting time is not exact but merely a representative of their relative performance with each other.

We will be updating and using this chart every month to include more devices as we test them.

    How about Firefly Mobile Allure 64 LTE?

  2. Phillip says:

    Interesting.. nagulat ako sa ZF2, nasa bandang taas pero kung magcomment ang mga owners sobrang bilis daw ma-lowbatt

    • nyayay says:

      try niyong pumunta sa zenfone forum ng asus halos reklamo sa battery ang nandun. totoo naman kahit sa review ng iba

    • jr says:

      im currently using zf2 ze551ml more or less 7 hrs of streaming using wifi, 5hrs lang pag naka data

    • Basa basa din pag may time says:

      Baka naman ze 551ml ang inutukoy mo?
      Zenfone laser kasi nakalagay sa pangalawang spot. Talagang matipid sa battery dahil 410 sd ang procie at 720p lang ang reso kaya matagal malowbat

  3. Lenard says:

    eh asan ang z3 compact?

  4. Yazzy says:

    Can you guys add other tests for battery life like video loop playback for example? This is a real world test and can give us a better idea on how long the battery of the device really last.

  5. Marvin says:

    Where are some models of Cloudfone thrill?

  6. hope says:

    Talagang di man lang nakapasok ang myphone. Myphone Uno user ako tagal ng battery life kahit mag sound maghapon at nka wifi ako hanggang 5pm na yun. Talagang siguro may galit ang Yugatech sa Myphone.

  7. Christian says:

    Can you include Windows Phone at iPhones in your other articles? Sayang, it would be also interesting to see how those phones compare to others.

  8. JG says:

    you should include meizu m1 note

  9. romeocharlie says:

    I’d say mas reliable ang loop test na ginagawa nina yugatech than pcmark.

    deceiving talaga yung ZF2, actual users ang ranting bout its battery life..

    BTT: you can add Xiaomi Mi3 and Mi4, although old models but worth the comparison.

  10. Tan says:

    Ung Flare S3 Power… bakit di kasama sa ranks?

  11. bern says:

    Could you add Meizu M2 Note and Sony XPeria Z3 Compact?

  12. Jes says:

    Lenovo P70 scored 10 hours+ while K80 only 6 hours+ with same 4,000mah battery. Bakit kaya?

  13. Yul says:

    I read on Engadget that Samsung Note 3 still is number 1 when it comes to battery life.

  14. adam says:

    please add “Infinix hot note” for low price battery comparison

  15. Jay says:

    Nexus 5 user here. Mine lasts 6hrs with some internet use.

  16. jp says:

    Where’s the LG G Pro 2?

  17. jtin says:

    nakakatuwa naman po my nag rereview ng mga local phone tulad ng Cherry Mobile at myphone keep it up po maganda ang site na ito sa mga nag hahanap ng budget phone na matagal ang battery life

  18. Ronald says:

    Nice info.

  19. Vincee says:

    Cherry Mobile Fuze S user here. My smartphone should be included in this list.

  20. yadzkie says:

    LG G3?

  21. Kofty says:

    Anong baseline ginagamit nyo for the tests? Brightness? Volume? Wifi on? Data on? Etc.

  22. how about sony xperia z2?

  23. Jhandie says:

    sana my full review ng O+ ultra

  24. karl says:

    cherry mobile s3 power/fuze s pls :)

  25. What about the lenovo A5000 4000mah?

  26. A follower of your blog says:

    Misleading.. Like you said, it does not necessarily mean that the higher the mAh the longer the battery… Why not do a survey and ask people which phone they think lasts longer?

  27. A follower of your blog says:

    Hahaha… Bias… Pinipili lang ang mga positive comments… Yung mga negative deleted… No wonder maraming nagsasabi na bias ang media

  28. bambi lee says:

    try samsung e6

  29. baconbriefs says:

    Interested in the MAIA Smart Tab but its position on that list is discouraging, lol.

  30. Phone Collector says:

    Please add Flare 4, s4 and s4 plus!

  31. Reniel Estanislao says:

    What about Flare S3 Power?

    • WC says:

      My Cherry Mobile Flare S3 Power (The newer version with Lollipop pre-installed) logged 12 hours 46 minutes.

      I don’t know how Yugatech test their devices, but I tested it with the following parameters: 50% brightness, Volume at max (it only plays during one portion of the test), no SIM, airplane mode).

      Hope Yugatech could test this unit too, so that they can add it to the list, it’s the cheapest model with 4000 maH battery and with a decent CPU too.

  32. Crimson says:

    Can you add Samsung Galaxy Note 4 N910S please? Thanks YugaTech

  33. Issei says:

    Sir Abe, maybe if you can add the prices of each phone so they can decide more on what to buy.. :-)

  34. Aeon Ranger says:

    Dami pang wala dito. Nokia and Windows Phones are not listed…

  35. huazyness says:

  39. NIlz says:

    So this means that Mediatek-based devices are really inefficient devices.

  40. mel gaza says:

    how about the new asus zen 3 Laser ? :-)

  41. jl says:

    how about oukitel k10000? Reviews say that it lasts for a week. This phone has a 10000 mah battery. I really want to see. I’m sure you would be excited to test such phone.

  42. orlando says:

    wheres alcatel pixi 4 plus power?

  43. Win ong says:

    Hi why is zenfone 3 zoom not in the list? I’m curious to see how it does as zenfone 3 can manage to get 13hrs with 3000 mah because of the snapdragon 625.

  44. Win ong says:

    Ah ok thanks abe, is there something wrong with the zenfone 3 zoom thats why it crashes? Please also include the f3 plus. Im also curious how it fares against the rest. Im checking back on this article every now and then for reference. Great job guys. Hope u keep it up!

  45. Win ong says:

    What is wrong with the zenfone 3 zoom thats why Pcmark battery test crashes? I read it in yugatech review too. Please also include the f3 plus. Im curious how it fares against the competition. Great job on this article by the way. It was very informative.

  46. Win ong says:

    Ahh, well looking forward for the next update of this article. Im looking at these two phones for my next smartphone upgrade. Anyway, more power to u guys ????

  47. Ren says:

    Hi Abe,

    I’ve tried it on my S8+ and gave me a result of 6hrs and 7mins, with full brightness on and everything else turned off. I think it’s too low, should my brightness be set somewhere in the middle?

    I’m really disappointed on how it performed given that some of the tests I’ve seen goes beyond 8hrs.
    Don’t know if something’s wrong with the phone, but it’s only 2 weeks old.


  48. Jaycee says:

    How about the samsung galaxy a11?
