Phones that stuff the most battery for their chassis? Well, here's a metric
posted by Daniel P. / Jan 13, 2015, 3:38 AM
Sony Xperia Z3, and its 3100 mAh unit. That's right - it's the 5" Honor 6, 5.5" Honor 6 Plus, 6" Mate7, and 5" Ascend P7 that have the largest batteries relative to their chassis volume, as you can see in the ranking table below.Which metric is that, you ask? Why, the milliamp-hour-per-cubic-centimeter one, of course. It's no surprise that Huawei itself has ranked current phones by the mAh/cm3 ratio, as its own phones are occupying the first four spots there, followed by the slim
How important is this metric for the actual battery life, you ask? Well, out of the phones we've tested in our own battery benchmark list, the Z3, Mate7, and MX4 Pro - all in the top 10 here below - are indeed ranking "excellent," with more than 9 hours of screen-on time in our gruelling PhoneArena battery benchmark. We haven't tested the Honor 6/6 Plus yet, but those should deliver respectable performance, too, given the specs and battery capacities, so juicer size for a unit volume might be one of the good ballparks to follow when looking for long battery life yet still a compact handset. On the other hand, the iPhone 6 Plus is in the top 10, too, on account of its slender 7.1mm profile, yet its battery life is average at best.

Because you hate Chinese phones...I get it. Just learn to deal with it and accept the fact. iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus is nowhere near the Xperia Z3 and Ascend Mate 7 in terms of battery life.

iPhone 6 and 6 Plus?? They are on position 24 and 8. Number 1 and 2 are the Honor 6 and 6 plus, not the Iphone 6 and 6 plus. @Kruze I think he just misread the Honor 6, 6+ for iPhones. Also this table is about battery to body ratio, not battery life...

My mistake lol. But still, there's no way he will misread the Honor 6 and 6 Plus as iPhone 6 and 6 Plus; and as you can see in the metric, there are 荣耀 (Honor) 6 Plus and iPhone 6 Plus which have obvious differences in their names.

Anyone can invent their own metrics and be on top of it.

This article is as useless as the day is long. Other than playing with arbitrary numbers, this article says nothing about the life expectancy of any of these devices. A bigger battery does not equate to longer life if the system is not optimized for it. A Motorola flip phone with a paltry 800mAh battery lasts almost a week.

HAH! The Galaxy S5 beat the iPhone...both models. The Asians are kicking the USA's butt yet again. They make the most phones (Asian Country's), they sell the most phones, they have the best spec'd phones for what you pay and even in sub-categories they are on top their too. This is why Asian countries are number one in nearly every product sold in the USA. They simply make better products. Even though Apple is an Asian company disguised as an American one, because they design their own products as an American company and assemble them as an Asian company, their products just suck. The first 2 items in the list can easily be misread as the iPhone 6/6+ unless you can read Chinese equal of "Honor", which American company's and their fans have no idea what Honor means. lol
