Which phone has the best battery life? Galaxy S4 vs Xperia Z vs HTC One vs iPhone 5 infographic
The Brits from Which? did a battery test recently, where the world's flagship smartphones were pitted against each other for your viewing pleasure. In the test conditions the phones' screens were set to one and the same comfortable for reading brightness level, rather than turning them up to the maximum, since brighter screens would consume more energy in principle. Browsing time was recorded over a 3G connection, which puts strain on the battery both from the display and network connectivity.
Despite Samsung's recent share price woes due to its disappointing guidance on high-end phones slowdown, the Galaxy S4 consistently proves that it might not take your heart with design and new features, but it is a very, very balanced smartphone, consistently scoring at the top of camera and now battery tests. It was also a fast charger, though the iPhone 5 took the cake in the charging speed category. There are no phablets in the infographic, but the testers say that if there were, the Note II with its huge battery unit had shown to beat them all in its turn.
