6 Smartphones With The Best Battery Life

The last thing you want is for your phone to run out of juice when you need it most. Usually, a phone lasts a full work day with moderate use. But if you use it heavily, you’ll need to recharge it more often. Batteries also lose steam over time, running down faster the longer you’ve owned the phone. The spectre of losing battery — and therefore losing your communication hub — is frightening and real.

If you feel your handset battery seems to be stuck in the ’90s and doesn’t last as long as you’d like, you’re not alone. So if a long-life battery tops your list of smartphone needs, check out these top-scorers in CNET’s continuous video tests.

These are the phones with best battery life

1). Motorola Moto Z Play

As the cheapest, most “midrange” phone of Motorola’s Moto Z series, we were stunned to see that the Moto Z Play not only had the longest battery life of the Z line, but of all the handsets we reviewed this year so far. Clocking in a whopping 23 hours and 3 minutes, this handset is worth getting for the battery life alone (aside from the fact that it also works with useful modular accessories). Its Z Force counterpart didn’t do so shabbily either, with a time of 16 hours and 32 minutes of video playback.

2). Samsung Galaxy S7 Active ( S7 Edge and S7)

We know we said this list includes six phones, but really it’s nine. After the Moto Z Play, the next threelongest test results come from the entire Galaxy S7 family. That includes the recent Galaxy S7 Active, the S7 Edge and the S7. In addition to being top-tier devices (with the Active being extra durable) they clocked in battery run times over 21, 19 and 16 hours, respectively.

3). OnePlus 3

With an affordable price tag of $399 or £309 (approx. AU$590), the third flagship from OnePlus still offers high-end specs like a 16-megapixel camera, a Snapdragon 820 processor and a 5.5-inch display. Its battery also lasts an impressive 14 hours and 17 minutes, and with the company’s trademarked Dash charging technology, the device charges super quickly.

4). Xiaomi Mi 5


Unfortunately available in only China and India, the Mi 5 is one heck of a device. It features a dazzling glass design, a great 16-megapixel camera and a 5.15-inch screen. Its 3,000mAh battery is no slouch either, logging 14 hours in our lab tests. Perhaps by the end of 2017, the West will get a crack at the device?
