T-Mobile's Des takes the Samsung Galaxy Note 9 on a road trip to test its 4000mAh battery
T-Mobile has become known for its unusual unboxing videos starring Desmond Smith, the carrier's Content Director. With the unveiling today of the Samsung Galaxy Note 9 and its 4000mAh battery, Des decided to take the phone on a road trip to see if he could outlast the handset during the course of an all-day unboxing. The video kept track of the battery life of the Galaxy Note 9, which started at 100% at 9:05 am on the day of the road trip.
By 10:30am, the battery was at 99%. By 12:40pm, after using the camera often to display several features (including Super Slo-mo and Panorama), the cell still had 83% of its charge remaining. Des was also going strong, even after nine roller coaster rides. Next up was a small seaplane flight, and more video was shot. By 5:27pm, the battery inside the Galaxy Note 9 still had 64% of its "life" remaining.
Des certainly had a full day. After partaking in some Jet skiing and Paragliding, it was beginning to get dark. At 7:42pm, the battery had 42% of its original charge remaining. Des? He had to be feeling beat. In fact, when he was ready to pack it in at 8:01pm, the Galaxy Note 9 was still rearin' to go with 36% of its battery life still available.
