Battery Stats Plus creators log the best and worst Android devices and apps in terms of battery life
The creators of Battery Stats Plus for Android outed some graphs, based on reports from 474 Android devices and 5585 battery statistic reports in the span of the last three weeks. 

Bear in mind that the app is installed on user's phones all over the world, so some of the phones and tablets with the best and worst battery stats might surprise you in the stat charts below.

We won't spoil the fun, just check out the models below, we'd just point out that the average battery life seems to hang around the 20 hours mark, so don't be upset if that's what your Android phone manages to pull off with average usage.

How is it the Droid Razr HD is on the list but not the Razr Maxx HD?

i was thinking that it was actually the MAXX HD and that the MAXX devices share a device id with the regular Razr variants since all that's different is the internal storage and the battery size but that's actually not the case so i don't know what to tell you, maybe it wasn't tested. o:

the galaxy tab 8.9 is better than the 10.1, i have gotten a whole weekend of light usage out of the 8.9, not so much with the 10.1

I am kind of shocked the Thunderbolt was not listed in there somewhere. It's a good day for me to get 8hrs out of a charge.

Where the hell is Galaxy Note II?!

The battery can last longer doesn't mean it is a battery friendly... Take a look at the graph... Most of the battery friendly are LOW ENDS, SMALL BATTERY... why? Go figure... I give you a hint, galaxy y has below 3 inch screen, while galaxy note has above 5 inch :)

I for one, can say the HTC Sensation 4G had one of the worst battery life I've seen even with the Anker (2100mAh?) battery.. There's no way that phone can milk out about 35 hours. Reference: Picture 1

It doesn't. I average 16-18 hrs and have hit 30 hrs with light usage. In fact, I'm going to download this app so I can fix their averages for the Optimus G. In truth, what I believe we are seeing is that it's a very new phone and people typically use new phones a lot more at first before their usage settles down to normal usage.
