Samsung Galaxy S9 and S9+ battery test results are out

Is battery life any better on the new S9 than on last year's Galaxy S8 or Note 8 series? And how does it compare to other flagship phones in 2018?...

Lol. My old as dirt Xperia Z3 has 2+ hours more battery usage than the S9's... It's 2018 and that shouldn't be happening with any phone... It's pathetic really.

I don't understand how it's technically possible for the S8 to have a better battery score than ever single other high end Samsung phone including: the s9+, S8+ and Note 8 which al have bigger batteries.

I have the exynos s9+ and on my first charge it lasted 29hours with 6h19mn with sot and that's with wifi all the time, AOD and gmail synching and auto brightness

What is wrong with this website? Every battery drain test on YouTube, thus far, has shown that the s9+ has a decent battery life improvement over the s8+. I have no idea how Phonearena manages to get such skewed battery results with their tests. At least gsmarena's battery table makes some objective sense.

I reacently got my s9+ and i have to admint i hoped for a better battery life out of box. But an option to decrease rezolution to 720p when browsing on web pages or facebook and instagram helps a lot. As from average consumer point it is now almost perfect phone :)

Literally the only site showing the S9 and S9+ lasting less than the S8s. Might wanna re-test them, PA.

I'm not worried battery life is up to the individual user they control what battery life you get. I'm a BOSS in the battery life department my S8Plus and Note8 are great S9Plus will be fine
