The BlackBerry Z10 has serious ambitions to become the business phone, but there’s one major requirement – it should be able to last during long hours spent at the office or traveling between meetings.
With a 1,800mAh capacity the Z10 battery isn’t the biggest around, but it has an OS designed just for it at the moment (unlike Android that runs on many different devices with many different chipsets). Read more »
Our review of Sony Xperia E dual is done, so we took our time to do a proper battery test. The results are ready for you to check out.
The Xperia E dual us running on a dated single-core chipset and comes with a 3.5-inch HVGA display, but features dual-SIM functionality with dual stand-by support. The smartphone draws its power from a 1530 mAh battery. Read more »
The Oppo Find 5 has ambitions of playing in the big leagues – it certainly did well enough during our review to be allowed entry. But high-end phones with their powerful chipsets and big screens can munch through a battery in record time.
Good thing it has a 2,500mAh battery – Motorola’s MAXX phones aside, most 5” or less phones have far less juice. The battery’s non-removable, too so it’d better be good. Read more »
Yesterday we published our in-depth Galaxy S II Plus review and now is the time to share the details of its battery test with you.
The smartphone offers the same battery as its predecessor, but offers a more efficient chipset and a new Android release, which should lead to an improvement in its endurance. Read more »
Now that our review of the Nokia Lumia 510 is over, we are ready to share the details on the smartphone’s battery test. It’s the first smartphone to run on Windows Phone 7.8 and is probably the one with least powerful hardware, so we were interested how it would do.
The Lumia 510 shares many specs with the Lumia 610 we met with last summer, but comes with a 0.3-inch bigger display (that’s a more space to light up) and 4GB less of storage. Read more »
Placed comfortably as the company’s top mid-range model, the LG Optimus L9 is a droid that should be on your check list when shopping for a stylish smartphone offering great bang for your buck. It’s now time to check how it does in our traditional battery test and how it stacks up against its direct rivals.
Naturally we put the LG Optimus L9′s battery through its paces in our traditional battery test to see how far it can take you in everyday situations. Read more »
Like we already concluded in our detailed review, the T-Mobile exclusive Nokia Lumia 810 has identical internals to the Lumia 820, save for its larger 1800mAh battery. Naturally, our battery test was the best way to determine how much further the extra 150mAh of juice which the Lumia 810 packs can take you.
As always, we take a look at the talk time performance first. Read more »
Being the latest Nexus device, the LG Nexus 4 has been burdened by a lot of expectations. As our review pointed out, it’s not only a handsome device, but also quite powerful. What’s been left unanswered (so far) is how good its battery is at keeping the whole thing running.
The Samsung Galaxy Nexus launched exactly a year ago posted terrible battery results due to an unfortunate combination of a relatively small battery capacity of 1750mAh, large high-res screen and not the terribly efficient TI OMAP 4460 chip. In comparison, the LG Nexus 4 features a 2100mAh battery and a 28nm Qualcomm chip, so let’s see how it did. Read more »
The Nokia Lumia 920 brings big innovations in mobile tech with its PureMotion HD+ display and optically stabilized Carl Zeiss camera lens, but what about the battery? It’s a 2000mAh unit – more or less on the same level as the Android flagships and the biggest Nokia has put in a smartphone.
But is it enough? How does it compare with the Lumia 820? Armed with a watch, a calculator and patience we set off to find out. Read more »
The Samsung Galaxy S III mini is a scaled down version of its big namesake – that means a smaller 4″ screen, two CPU cores instead of four and a smaller battery too, with 1,500mAh capacity.
Did the battery life scale accordingly, is it still the same, or even better? That’s what we’re here to find out. Read more »
The latest offering from Acer features a dual-core 1.5GHz Krait CPU, and pushes out an 4.3 inch HD display on Adreno 225 graphics.
It’s seems that this is quite a lot to ask from a 1460 mAh battery, but let’s if it’s up to the task. Read more »
The Nokia Lumia 820 is our first brush with the Finnish company’s next generation of Windows Phone handsets. It has a relatively small battery (1650mAh), smaller than even HTC’s Windows Phone 8X juice pack. And that one certainly didn’t impress us much with its battery life.
The Lumia 820 has a dual-core Krait processor running at 1.5GHz inside (like most other WP8 phones) so we don’t expect this to make any difference, but that 4.3” AMOLED screen probably will. Read more »
The HTC Droid DNA leads the charge of phones with super-sharp screens into the west – it has 5″ 1080p display with an amazing pixel density of 440ppi (the screen looked great when we handled the phone).
The demanding resolution is taken care by the powerful Snapdragon S4 Pro chipset with a quad-core Krait processor and the new Adreno 320, which is the best an Android phone can get at the moment. But is the 2,020mAh battery too small? Read more »
The Samsung Galaxy Premier is the latest in the line of Samsung droids to undergo out battery test gauntlet, and the dual-core 1.5 GHz device showed some great battery endurance – especially in regards to video playback.
Lets take a look at how this mini powerhouse performs in other areas as well, including talk time and web browsing. Read more »
The HTC One X+ is a quick update to the company’s flagship – they pumped up the Tegra 3 chipset to higher clock speeds, fitted a bigger battery to compensate and threw in some extra storage to sweeten the pot.
Now the question is whether the bigger batter and Jelly Bean are enough to offset the extra power usage from the overclocked chipset. Read more »
