PhoneArena Battery Test Results

PhoneArena Battery Test Results
We at PhoneArena take battery life testing seriously: we put all phones that we review through some rigorous testing.

This has allowed us to build a database of all the phones that we have tested in the last few years and on this page you will find all the results summarized in a table.

But let's start by talking about how we perform our battery testing. First, we make sure that all phones are tested without a SIM card and all conditions are equal as much as possible. One important step to ensuring that is that we set the brightness level of phones to a fixed level of 200 nits using specialized display color meter and professional software. This is a brightness level that ensures comfortable use indoors as the most common use case.

Our first test is the Web browsing battery test. It loads up the same set of webpages on all of the phones and then scrolls up and down to simulate real-world use. This is the lightest of our tests as it doesn't put a big load on the processor.

Our second test is the YouTube video streaming battery test. We load up the same video playlist on all of the phones. This is a more intense test that uses more resources, and it provides a valuable and different perspective on battery life that those who watch a lot of video on their phone will appreciate.

Our third test is the 3D Gaming battery test. In this test we load up the same 3D game environment on all of the phones and ensure that all the phones run at the same graphics settings. While the other two tests stress the CPU of a phone, this one also puts a significant load on the GPU and it is particularly useful for gamers.

With this in mind, here are the scores:
