Which Is The Best Battery Life Smartphone?

Share on :

Apple said at the launch of the iPhone 7 that the smartphone would have better battery life. But that doesn’t mean it can top Android competitors, according to new data.

The firm's testing sought to determine exactly how long each phone's battery would last while making voice calls and while browsing the web, both using 3G.

If we compared the iPhone 7’s battery life, when making calls and browsing the web, to those of three top Android competitors: the Samsung Galaxy S7, HTC 10 and LG G5, and the results were staggering.

The iPhone 7 only managed 712 minutes (nearly 12 hours) with a single charge. On the other hand, the rival Samsung Galaxy S7 lasted twice as long.

The HTC 10 lasted an incredible 1,859 minutes (that’s almost 31 hours)!

As for Internet surfing, the iPhone 7 still came in last against its rivals although the differences weren't that major.

The differences seen when web-browsing using mobile data weren’t dramatic. The HTC 10 performed best, managing 790 minutes of continuous use. The iPhone 7 was worst, at 615 minutes, but not hugely lower than LG’s G5 which managed 640 minutes and Samsung’s Galaxy S7 at 677 minutes.

Why does the iPhone 7 battery fare so poorly?

So just why does the iPhone 7 have such a poor battery life? It may sound obvious, but the majority of the fault lies in its comparatively tiny cell. Smartphone batteries are measured in milliampere hours (mAh). The iPhone 7 has a 1,960mAh battery, whilst the HTC 10 has a 3,000mAh battery: it should hardly be surprising that one battery nearly half the size of another offers roughly half as much charge.
