While the smartphone business keeps booming, more and more new devices are coming into the market that offer more new features. These features are actually the highlight of any major flagship that are being released these days.
These days it's not really a surprising thing to see devices fitted with powerful hardware like a quad core or an octa core processor being released into the market. These devices running via this much energy surely mean that more new advances are waiting to happen in the days to come.
But more specs and features mean more power consumption. And sometimes these kinds of consumption can spell danger for the user as a drained battery isn't really a great thing if you still have a day ahead of you, but only running the phone on a single charge.
A long battery life is easily one of the most desirable features among the smartphone buyers. Long battery life allows you to email, text, and surf the web longer, apart from giving your smartphone enough juice to last the whole day.
So if we are to pick out the cream of the smartphone business with reference to a major battery backup-based device, which are the smartphones do you think will get the benefit of the doubt? We take a look at the top 5.
The Lenovo S860's battery life is an area where the device overshadows all its rivals in the market. The device's 4000 mAh battery will easily last for a day, even under heavy usage.
Apparently, a few tests have even showed that the device will offer continuous video playback for 16 hours, Wi-Fi browsing, and an overall time on average usage of 28 hours. So it's basically offers a monstrous battery.
The Moto X ships with a 2,200mAh non-removable battery that the company claims can deliver up to 24 hours of mixed usage. And by our standards, while we played around with the device, the Moto X easily completes at least 7 t0 8 hours on a single charge.
There's also a power saver mode that comes into action once the battery hits orange level and cuts off packet data.
The Samsung Galaxy S5 is one of those few current top-end phones that actually give you access to the removable battery unit. It's a 2,800 mAh unit that's quite an upgradation compared to the 2,600mAh in the Galaxy S4.
So even under heavy usage, that also consists of mixed usage, the S5 will keep rolling on with more to spare for the next day. And we mean that when we say that all that can happen on a single charge.
The Battery life on the LG G2 is quite excellent. Sporting a 3000 mAh unit, the device was a grand success when it first arrived on the scene in 2013.
And now with the Android KitKat update, the device's battery life has managed to get even better. Moreover, LG actually managed to cram in a 3000mAh power pack inside the G2, which is larger than the new flagships like the Samsung Galaxy S5 and HTC One (M8).
The Nexus 5 comes with a 2300mAh battery, and while our time with it, we managed to get more than a day with mixed usage usage. This included surfing the web, listening to YouTube, and even composing back to back mails for our clients.
And while there have been reports about the inconsistency of the device's battery life, we are yet to come across any user who actually said negative about the device's battery. And we know quite a few who own one.
