Who wouldn’t like a smartphone companionship with best battery life that will last beyond a day after heaviest of usage?
Battery life on any smartphone is an essential factor to keep in mind before buying a new phone. Although there are some flashy specs that manufacturers are pushing us to consider as well such as AI camera, bezel-less display and God knows what other, but the truth is, the entire strength of a smartphone becomes as useless as a brick when its battery dies.
The good examples are iPhones and Samsung’s smartphones which despite powerhouse, have always been poor on battery’s front. Their fans have been crying ever since, and yes you will find most of them carrying a power bank beside their phones.
Not everything is as gloomy as it seems to be, thankfully, there are smartphones which don’t spoil your experience at all. We have gathered some top phones with best battery life so the list could help you when you make up your mind next time for buying a new phone.
Mi Max 2 – 5300 mAh
Top of our list is the Xiaomi Mi Max 2 which is the successor of Xiaomi’s best selling phablet Mi Max. It comes with a colossal 5300mAh battery that can easily last up to two days of heavy usage, and this is where the best part comes. The phone is also equipped with Qualcomm quick charge 3.0. The company claims that the phone can charge to 68% in an hour so even if your juice dries out, you can charge the phone within an hour so much that it lasts a whole day again.
Such a huge battery with quick charge support should more than be enough to last more than a whole 24 hours even with heavy users. Other than its humongous battery the Mi Max 2 houses a Snapdragon 625 with 4 GB RAM and 32/64/128 GB of internal storage to choose from.
Motorola E4 Plus – 5000 mAh
Although the E4 Plus is an older phone as compared to the others on the list, still it deserves an honorary mention on the 2018 list just because of its tremendous battery. The phone was released back in 2017 and its sole selling pitch was its huge battery. Even now the phone is still going strong in sales because of its battery, given that it is a year old model and also a budget device.
Moto E4 Plus hosts a huge 5000 mAh battery. Although it supports fast charging but since its an older generation of fast charge, the phone takes quite some time to regain its juice. If you are a battery freak and don’t mind your phone being hefty and heavy, E4 Plus is the phone for you.
The phone boasts a 5.5-inch HD display with 3GB of RAM and 16/32 GB of internal storage. It is a MediaTek 6737 powered device which is not so much of a power efficient chip but still, the 5000 mAh never wears off easily.
Huawei Mate 10 Pro – 4000 mAh
It would be an injustice if we don’t add Huawei Mate 10 Pro to the list. Huawei’s latest flagship in the Mate series is an absolute beast in terms of battery. It sports a 4000 mAh battery with a support for Huawei Supercharge that can charge the phone from 0 to 58% in 30 mins.
Mate 10 Pro gives you more than a day of heavy usage and that is only possible because of the AI integration in the Huawei’s Kirin 970 chip which keeps a record of more power hungry apps and lets them draw less power, all the while improving the efficiency of the phone. Among all others, Mate 10 Pro is easily the flagship with best battery life.
In addition to that, the Mate 10 pro also comes with an AMOLED display which is known to be a power saving display technology. Huawei Mate 10 pro comes in 128GB/6GB and 64GB/4GB variants with a ton of exciting features.
Redmi Note 5 – 4000 mAh
Xiaomi is very good at providing huge batteries in its phones but not at the cost of phone’s performance. Redmi Note 5 packs a 4000mAh battery with Quick Charge 2.0. We are a bit skeptical about the fast charging technology, as it takes more than 2 hours to fully charge the phone.
However, even if you are an excessively demanding user, you will not need your charger until you go to bed at night. As for the light users, the battery can easily last two days giving you the best battery life experience within affordable range.
Redmi note 5 is Xiaomi’s latest offering in budget category and packs Snapdragon 625 with 64GB/4GB or 32GB/3GB versions available and proves to be a decent choice in midrange category.
Huawei P20 Pro – 4000 mAh
Despite the sleek look and elegant design, the recently launched Huawei P20 pro packs a mammoth 4000mAh battery. Huawei is constantly evolving their phones into powerhouses by providing excellent specs bound with superb batteries. P20 Pro also comes with Huawei Supercharge technology and can fully charge from flat to 100% in just 90 mins.
Other than that the phone is known as the world’s first triple camera phone. Huawei P20 Pro also comes with Kirin 970 chip that allows the phone to monitor and manage power usage intelligently. With 6 GB of RAM and 128 GB internal storage the phone is a powerhouse with a big battery.
Google Pixel 2 XL – 3520mAh
Google’s last flagship did not only snatch the position of the best camera phone but also made its way to the phones with the best battery life. Google’s stock android and optimized hardware ensure a smooth flow of your day to day operations on the phone while making sure that the phone’s 3520 mAh battery last your whole day at work.
Even though Pixel 2 XL is home to Qualcomm’s older chipset, Snapdragon 835, it still outshines some of the flagships in terms of camera and performance, thanks to Google’s ideal optimization and compatibility of hardware and software.
These are the devices that have made it to our best battery life phones list till now. We will keep adding to the list once we get hold of more phones with big batteries.
