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?
