HTC One Max battery life test: the luxury of having a 3300mAh juicer
We have put the One Max through our extensive battery life test that mimics real-world usage and found it more than capable to do so. The HTC phablet scored a whopping 7 hours and 27 minutes on our battery test. This puts it at the top of our rankings, beating the already long-lasting Galaxy Note 3 by a huge margin, and leaving smaller smartphones in the dust.
The 7 hours and 27 minutes is the single-charge longevity you should get out of the HTC One Max if you use like you normally would with one exception - in our test, we don’t put it to rest not even for a second. In reality, of course, you are not glued to your screen non-stop, so you should expect it to last much more. The One Max has great stand-by performance, and if we had to translate its 7h 27m score into real-world terms, we’d say that you can easily have it last a full 24-hour day, even under the heaviest of strains. Use it without going to extremes, and you’d enjoy two to three days of use between charges. Neat!
All in all, the HTC One Max is not only big in size - it’s equally big in battery longevity. And with that gorgeous aluminum body and premium design, it might turn out to be a great choice for those looking for their first phablet.
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.
As for our battery test, we use a simulation of real-life usage. A smartphone nowadays is used for much more than calling and texting, so we had to take this into account. The average smartphone user actually spends most of the time on the web and social media, and you might be surprised that this average Joe of a user actually listens to music and plays games more than he talks! To get a better understanding of that average use, feel free to take a look at the top activities we do on our smartphones.

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...
