How does it all work together?
Quite impressively actually: the Mate 20 had the highest score of any flagship phone in 2018 when it comes to battery life!
With a score of the whopping 14 hours and 26 minutes, it's head and shoulders above the competition. Take a look at the chart below to see the astounding difference in battery life with the Mate 20:
Battery life (hours) Higher is better
Huawei Mate 20 14h 26 min (Excellent)
Apple iPhone XS Max 9h 34 min (Good)
Apple iPhone XS 8h 37 min (Good)
Apple iPhone XR 11h 1 min (Excellent)
Samsung Galaxy Note9 8h 56 min (Good)
Samsung Galaxy S9+ 8h 5 min (Average)
Samsung Galaxy S9 7h 23 min (Average)
Google Pixel 3 XL 7h 39 min (Average)
LG V40 ThinQ 6h 21 min (Poor)
LG G7 ThinQ 6h 32 min (Average)
The only device that even comes closer to it is the iPhone XR, which scored a respectable 11 hours of battery life, but still compared to the Mate 20 is way behind.
In real life, you can get two days of usage out of the Mate 20, while with most other phones this year, you can get 1 full day, but usually not more.
Charging time (minutes) Lower is better
Huawei Mate 20 98
Apple iPhone XS Max 209
Apple iPhone XS 185
Apple iPhone XR 192
Samsung Galaxy Note9 109
Samsung Galaxy S9+ 105
Samsung Galaxy S9 107
Google Pixel 3 XL 123
LG V40 ThinQ 109
LG G7 ThinQ 107
When it comes to charging times, the Mate 20 ships with a fast charger in the box and despite the big battery size, it's able to fully recharge the battery in just about an hour and 40 minutes. This is not quite as fast as the ultra-rapit charging on the Mate 20 Pro, but is still plenty fast.
So... will this incredible battery life convince you to put the Mate 20 higher on your wish list for the holidays? Let us know in the comments below!
