Samsung Galaxy S4 extensive battery tests are out: average users could use it for three days without charging

GSM Arena has done some extensive testing of the S4 battery and the results came in impressive.
The Galaxy S4 ranks on top of all three tests - talk time, web browsing and video playback.
With a talk time of almost 14 hours (13 hours 53 minutes), it ranks on par with the HTC One and better than the iPhone 5 and most other Androids (still worse than the RAZR MAXX, though).
When it comes to its web browsing time, it is also in high ranks with 8 hour and 42 minute longevity, but that puts it slightly behind the leading HTC One and iPhone 5.
For video playback, though, it fares slightly better than its immediate competitors with 10 hours and 16 minutes of longevity.
Overall, this makes for an “endurance rating” of 63 hours, a combined measure of its performance that shows how much the device should last in real life. This means you’d be able to squeeze out almost three full days if you do one hour of calling, web browsing and video watching every day.

It is just a shame that they didn´t use dragontail glass and the stereo speakers like ONE. And with the Octa version they could use USB 3.0 because exynos supports it. But yes GS4 will sell like cupcakes. GS4 is very good but I believe that Samsung could do it much better.

According to GSMArena, the screen is better than the one used on the HTC One. "Winner: Samsung Galaxy S4. The Samsung flagship takes this one, as its screen is bigger, with better sunlight legibility, while still offering you the option to have accurate colors thanks to Adobe RGB mode. The HTC One screen is impressive, too, but the higher pixel density can't really make up for the lower native contrast and slightly inferior sunlight legibility." http://www.gsmarena.com/samsun

I probably do about one hour browsing or not even. Youtube for less than an hour. A few minutes talk or not even. Mainly Whatsapp and texting. Most people I know are like that too. I think we would get 2 days easily off of that kind of usage. One day probably with the HTC One.

It doesn't have the best camera the HTc one does let the Nokia fanboys thumb me down but I've seen enough evidence that show the HTc one has a better camera and it does better low light video recording but over all s4 very impressive and good looking phone

Just getting better and better, the Octa-core version should be amazing then because the Little A7 will be handling calls, video and some web browsing. The camera came out much better than HTC One camera too, here's the full review http://www.gsmarena.com/samsun

One's camera has an advantage over S4's because One's camera quality is depended on its software. This can be refined over time to improve the picture quality. But from my experience, I really don't use camera too often nor show people the pictures I took. Even when I did show pictures to people, no one ever says "wow! the picture is amazing!!", but rather it's always that picture is so funny or awe those cats are cute haha. It's just personal experience. The smartphones coming out now are super amazing on its on and you can't compare facts everyday and at the end of the day is the personal preference. I love my Nexus 4 :D and waiting for Nexus 5 right now to decide what my next phone should be :D
