HTC One (M8) battery life test: excellent endurance
We measure battery life by running a custom web-script, designed to replicate the power consumption of typical real-life usage. All devices that go through the test have their displays set at 200-nit brightness.

13 November Our Google Nexus 6 battery life test is complete, phablet lags behind the Note 4As it turns out, this is the first Nexus device to achieve an excellent battery life on our custom test, or, all told – 7 hours and 53 minutes. Unfortunately, while this is a pretty great score overall, it does fall behind other recent QHD juggernauts, like the Galaxy Note 4 and the DROID Turbo, both of which fared better (8 hours 43 minutes and 10 hours 42 minutes, respectively)...
31 October Step aside, Sony Xperia Z3, the Motorola DROID Turbo is the new king of flagship battery lifeGet a hold of this, folks – Motorola's insanely spec'd out new flagship clocked the amazing 10 hours and 43 minutes on our trying battery life test – more than then any other high-end model we've tested, ever. In fact, the only two devices that are even more resilient are the ZTE Max and the Huawei Ascend Mate 2, both of which are significantly less decked out. This puts the DROID Turbo ahead of the Xperia Z3 (9 hours 29 minutes) and even the Xperia Z3 Compact (10 hours 2 minute). What's more, this results gives the Turbo a solid lead on other Quad HD smartphones, like the Note 4 (8 hours 43 minutes) and the LG G3 (6 hours 14 minutes)...
27 October Apple iPad Air 2 battery life test: shorter battery life despite Apple’s claimsApple has gained a lot of bragging rights with the iPad Air 2: it’s the world’s thinnest tablet, and at that - one of the lightest - plus, all of this without compromising on performance…
10 October Surprise, surprise! The Note 4 defies expectations by acing our battery life test, becomes the longest-lasting QHD phoneWhen Samsung execs took up to the stage during the company's Galaxy Note 4 announcement event and made it clear that the Galaxy Note 4 will not come with a significantly larger battery, we were a bit worried. After all, a Quad HD display is pretty much guaranteed to require more out of the battery, and we had proof -- just look at the LG G3 and Oppo Find 7. Neither of those had horrid endurance, but they weren't exactly industry-leading, either...
2 October Our Meizu MX4 battery life test is complete: ties with the Samsung Galaxy S5 and HTC One M8Meizu isn't exactly a household name in the West, but in its homeland of China, it very much is. The company has been involved in the smartphone business for a while now, and its latest flagship, the MX4, is quite promising -- the phone is spec'd out to the brim, more or less.[img right gallery4 200 [[142028,142030,142029]] /] What we were particularly interested in, however, was its 3100 mAh Li-Polymer battery and how well it will handle our stressful battery life test...
