    Phones with best battery life, what a joke. iPhone and Galaxy s20 shouldnt be on that list!

  2. Gustavo Rabino on June 25, 2021 at 8:02 pm

    My Xiaomi mi A2 Lite has a battery that lasts the same as these phones, cost me 180 USD and is 2 years old. Is sad to know that cellphone companies have failed to delivery on the most important thing of phones today. Charge should not only last longer but also the battery itself should be replaceable or last 3 years. Nowadays you get 6 months of a phone that has full battery life and then another 6 months with half the battery life you had when it was new until it reaches the point where the battery needs to be charged every 3 hours and you have to buy a new phone since they do not sell original batteries to replace to make you buy a new one and keep destroying the world. So when you buy a phone you should consider that they are made and designed to become obsolete in a year/year and half, very environmentally friendly, companies should be sanctioned.

    The thing is most phones use lithium ion battery and they age with time and it looses its capacity. No phone battery is gonna give you solid performance lifelong, maybe a year or a two.

    At the 5:17 mark, the number in the chart is mistaken. The Xiaomi Mi 10 Pro is listed to last 10 hours while the actual number is 14 hours and 12 minutes, longer than all other phones. We regret the error.

  7. Praneel Priyadarsan on June 25, 2021 at 8:06 pm

    It says "10 hours" for the Xioami Mi 10 ProπŸ˜‚

  20. Sealof TheLiving on June 25, 2021 at 8:22 pm

    The most important is the life span of the battery. How many years will the battery last. Not for hours of usage. I bought Asus Zenfone 4 max it has 5000mah. More than 2 days of usage if you are not heavy gamer. I bought last December 2017 and now Sept 9, 2020 its working but the battery is expanding and its damaging the LCD. Need to replace.

  21. Ashu XD on June 25, 2021 at 8:22 pm

    Guys to be honest android battery r best because i was using my 1plus7 since 1 yr n didn’t find any battery drain issue and i was playing games like pubg for 6-7hrs there was no issue….but when i switched to iphone Xr within 1 month the battery heath degraded to 99% then after 3months it became 94% the battery drain was really unexpected..That means in every 1 year we have to replace battery which will worth β‚Ή4000….And the price of these phone r not small also….So i just want to tell that go for any android phones but don’t go for iOS…

    Can u speak about the battery phone Samsung m31 and m31s

  24. Exotic Pyro77 on June 25, 2021 at 8:27 pm

    How about a phone that lasts two days of nonstop gaming

  25. Kamil Lugha on June 25, 2021 at 8:28 pm

    My cell phone I presumed already has factory setting to detect low battery power. Therefore if I did inadvertently reach at a "0%" juice left……again, then my cell phone would prompt me and indicate, " slow charge" or change to the correct charger cable. Some other warning similar to it.

    The battery is good, not the same though. Factory setting, not that much. Battery will charge on your phone, but not the same way. Stop and charge up on point, once you predict or see that you’ve reach below this mark. Zero < 30% battery power left. Stay above 30 > though to avoid the batteries reserve warning.

    I noticed that my phone charged at a higher rate just before I reach 30% hurdle or mark. If I paid attention.

    Sadly, charging below 30% reserve, forced me to charge it up (slow), I would then overlook the, " slow charging" or the "incorrect charger cable" prompts by powering off.

    The battery will charge quicker. Either way I had to eventually replace the battery. Less of a hussle that way.

    Moto g power has them all beat wtf

  27. Ovidiu Sandru on June 25, 2021 at 8:34 pm

    To keep a battery in top shape, you need to stop it from staying at 100% with a device like Chargie and monitor its health with an app like AccuBattery. Modern phone operating systems are still primitive when it comes to battery management.

    My ol LG v10 is running it’s course. The battery is going out, dropping sometimes as much as 50% of it’s charge if I’m browsing the internet for as ittle as an hour (granted, I do not know how Opera stacks up in power usage compared to other browsers), so I need to get a new phone. If anyone down here in the comments is willing to help me, I’m, somewhat obviously, looking for a phone with excellent battery. After all, battery is the main reason I want to replace my old girl (sometimes she stutters too, but it’s a 4 year-old phone). Except phones are also really expensive, so I either need a cheap one, or preferably, one that will just last a really long time before I need to buy a new one. I’d also rather the latter, since I want a phone with decent enough specs such that it will, again, last a few years and still be functional, and not so out of date that I want to replace it anyway. I also know for a fact that an iPhone won’t do, as I know from experience that I hate Apple software, don’t want to bother with an Apple account, or pay that much money if I can help it. Nor do I want to just get one of the later LG models, since they got rid of the buttons on the back of the phone, and I’m kinda salty about that. I really like that feature for some reason, and I just don’t want another LG out of spite for it, unless they are just too good to ignore. And I ABOLUTELY, POSTIVELY do NOT want a China phone.

    So is there anyone willing to help after reading all of that?

    I suppose I should also mention that I’m not willing to pay any consultancy fees. Need to spend that money on the phone.

    the more apps your running off your phone ..battery life drains faster..some apps run constantly,if you goto settings>apps>click a app might say disable or force stop..go through your apps decide which ones to uninstall/disable to save battery life,apps you barely use…also goto settings>battery>battery saver,click to to turn on,it might help a lil bit in battery life

  46. sunflash101 on June 25, 2021 at 8:56 pm

    The problem with these battery tests is that they don’t actually show the longevity of the batteries. Every Samsung flagship phone I’ve owned performed great for about 4-6 months before suddenly falling off a cliff in battery life.

  47. Luan Weber on June 25, 2021 at 8:56 pm

    I love the battery life of Samsung, but not the quality of the phones. I love the quality of iPhone, but not the battery at all πŸ˜‚β€οΈ
