Mobile Olympics: phones with the best battery life
posted by Daniel P. / Oct 20, 2014, 4:08 AM
That is why we take a peak in our battery tests database to see which phones offer much more endurance than others, and, as expected, the results might surprise you. It's not always the most popular flagship phones, and not even the ones with the highest battery capacity that are at the top of their endurance game, but rather phones that are a good mix of sufficient battery capacity, well-managed processor throttling, and - most of all - power-sipping screens, which means you won't see only phones with high-res displays in the top of the pops.
scored at least seven hours of screen-on time in our demanding battery test to help you choose, in case battery life is your most important requirement towards a smartphone. On a sidenote, we include the Lenovo P780 and S860 with their gigantic 4000 mAh batteries, despite that they are not present in our database yet, as there is enough hard evidence already that these are the smartphone endurance kings at the moment. There are plenty of new entrants since the last time we updated this list, and we are pleased to see the flagship Xperia Z3, Z3 Compact, Huawei Mate7 and Note 4 to make the top charts.We round up some of the best brand-name handsets that

still not enough for me. I only got 18-21 hours with zerolemon 10k mAh battery, but that for sure pretty impressive compare to stock battery. Hope one day, smartphone can survive more than 5-7 days with screen on.

Get a new Galaxy S5 and put the new $45 zerolemon 7500mha battery in it. Zerolemon even includes a new back cover plate for the S5. If the Galaxy S5 got a great battery life with a 2800mha battery, then you can just imagine how long it will get with a 7500mha battery.

you don't need to wait. thire is something hat could last an Entire (24 hours) of pure hardcore gaming/movie-watching. Galaxy Note 3. + Galaxy Note 3 external battery charger. + http :// mugen . co / batteries.html (remove spaces) Then buy 5900mAh extended battery and swap with original, and violla! A phone that easily a day. (I haven't checked, but when i use it (i play a lot of games and watch movies) it gets to around 10% after 2 days and one night.) And then you can swap out for another and you last another 2 days while charging the battery with a external battery charger.

My z ultra lasts almost 2 full days without a charge and i do use allot. On the sony site i could buy a cover with a 5000mah batty inside. Would probably get around 5days with that. Total would be 8050mah.but for me 2days is enough. Waiting for a z2/3 ultra ;)

my s4 with the zero lemon 7500mAH battery and thier new case is almost the same size as the otterbox case so I doubt it will be as bulky as you think. getting to 7 days battery life with 10 hours of screen time is pretty easy now.

10,000mah? well thats not a problem... you should buy note3 and buy a zerolemon 11,000mah which is availabe in a very reasonable price and install it inside your note3... here you go... 7 days of juice

no normal person living under normal circumstances should want a phone with a 10,000 mAh battery unless there was no trade off to having it which i'm sure is still a ways off. you wouldn't even get close to using all of the battery before you had to go to sleep a time in which it's no trouble at all to charge a phone. now if you're a hiker or something then yeah, you might want to get a phone with a removable battery that has a battery like this available.

Remember the time when nokia phones had 350mah battery an lasted for more than a week.??? Why do we need a 3000mah battery in phones? Surely in a year or two we will see battery of 10000mah in same size as we see a 3500mah one.. Then everyone would want one and they would be "normal"
