Samsung Galaxy S4 has Best Battery Life beating iPhone 5 & HTC One

There’s good news on one side, bad on the other. But in the end, it’s the same smartphone which is into talks for different reasons. We did learn from a lot of users and this was reported that Samsung smartphone’s benchmarking results were not true and were actually lesser than what was being shown by the company for the Samsung Galaxy S4 and it was manipulated. But with the results about the battery life being shown by “Which?” – A UK consumer research company, we do have to believe it because there’s some excellent devices being compared with different factors taken into consideration.

We’ll keep all the benchmarking results aside, although the rarely used Geekbench 2 benchmark test too showed the Galaxy S4 on the top above the HTC One. Below is an infographic shown by Which? to explain how the battery lasts on the latest best smartphones in the market, when certain different functions are carried out.

Which Battery Research

Best Battery Life for Voice Calling

Samsung Galaxy S4 was on the top with 1051 minutes, followed by Sony Xperia Z at 985 minutes and Google Nexus 4 at 846 minutes. In the list of the 7 smartphones that were tested, the top four were Android devices, which were followed by the Blackberry Z10, iPhone 5 and the Lumia 920 from Nokia.

Best Battery Life while browsing the Internet

Again in this category, it was the Galaxy S4 on the top, in which the Internet browsing was possible for 405 minutes, and that was more than a hour than in HTC One which showed the battery capacity of 339 minutes on full charge, followed by the Blackberry Z10. The worst again in this league too was the Nokia Lumia 920 with 235 minutes of web browsing possible.

Fastest Charging Smartphones Batteries

This is the only section where the Galaxy S4 was not a winner, with the iPhone 5 and the Nokia Lumia 920 taking the top two spots, but when you are talking only about the Android smartphones, the Galaxy S4 is better than the Xperia Z, HTC One and Nexus 4 with a time of 164 minutes for a full charge of the battery.

These results do show the Galaxy S4 on the top, but with the new LG G2 coming into the scene, would the results be the same, with the battery of the G2 being better? It’s a 3000 mAh battery in the G2 when compared to the 2600 mAh one in the Galaxy S4. We’ll wait and watch, and try out a comparison as soon as the G2 is available for sale and we get a hands-on of the devices for a proper comparison. Till then, you may check the LG G2 vs Galaxy S4 vs Moto X comparison.

      I think its a fair comparison, because S4 have a bigger screen(1 inch bigger), More Pixels (1080p), powerful CPU(quad core), more RAM(2Gb) and more features which will affect battery life.
      just make it short, S4 is almost double on whatever iphone have, with less than double the size of the battery capacity and still managed to outrun iphone5 with double the life. its impressive.

    I think this charging time was not measured by the proper charger provided by Samsung Along with S4.
    the charger i got was a 2 Amp charger and it charges my phone in no more than 1:15 ish..
