Battle of Batteries, What Phone Has Better Autonomy?

Since we went from using mobile phones only to talk and send messages to use them for anything but for that (I think that many find ourselves in the position that almost we use more mobile to browse the internet, check email, update twitter, check facebook, etc., not to what was originally intended), the battery has gone from last weeks little more than one day – depending on the application, is clear -.

This decline in life after a battery charge is more than justified. The technology that we have added in recent years to our mobile phones (best cameras, screens far larger, more powerful processors, 3 G modems or even LTE, wi-fi, bluetooth antennas, GPS …) and has changed our habits of use of the same, It has evolved much faster than batteries, So where before we had to charge the phone once a week, now we have to do almost every day.

Many manufacturers try to include the maximum of news in their terminals (LTE, NFC, etc) and, fortunately, there are many who worry about a little longer over the life of the battery through the optimization of energy resources of the components of the terminal. Even so, this often is insufficient and are forced to increase the size of the terminal to incorporate a slightly larger battery, as it has happened with the Motorola RAZR MAXX, who went from a few sexy 7.1 millimeters thick to almost 1 cm (9.9 mm), which represents a “ fattening ” 40%, falling to 0.6 mm for the thickness of the iPhone 4S or 1. 4 mm of Samsung Galaxy S2, so that we can compare.

In this sense, sometimes manufacturers are tests to determine the duration of the batteries According to the use given to the phone and with certain conditions intended by themselves (brightness to 40%, only the wi-fi enabled but not bluetooth, or whatever), that’s why sometimes it is best to let an independent entity, as in the case of GSMArena, do the same battery test on several phones with the features that they define (for all equal obviously).

Thus, following the same parameters, as I said, from GSMArena have drawn up a list of terminals depending on duration of battery in three different situations: calling, surfing the internet and playing video. I warn you that the Motorola RAZR MAXX WINS Street (with time of 20 hours and 24 minutes, 7 hours and 23 minutes, 14 hours and 17 minutes, respectively) due to its huge battery 3300 MAH, but even so, it is interesting to see in which jobs are some of the most popular terminals.

Talk time

Test call time, the runner-up with a time of 12 hours and 14 minutes is the Galaxy Note (its size allowed to accommodate a larger battery), the Lumia 710 Nokia sits in eighth place with 9 hours and 5 minutes, the Meizu MX in twelfth position, followed by the Samsung Galaxy S2, iPhone occupies the nineteenth place with just 7 hours and 41 minutes in conversation.

To surf the internet using a wireless network, the best mobile, as we have already said is the RAZR MAXX, but heels we have HTC Radar (with Windows Phone), just 5 minutes away, while the iPhone 4S is in third place 27 minutes from Motorola phone. The BlackBerry Curve 9380 sneaks into the top 5 with a time of 6 hours and 40 minutes of surfing on the internet and most appreciated terminal that carry Windows Phone does not appear until the 23rd position, this is the Nokia Lumia 900 little lasting more than 4 hours, seeing even surpassed by the Nokia N9 with MeeGo.

Playing movies

Finally, the results derived from letting the phone playing video let us as second to the front of a Samsung phone for the us, giving it market the third place the new HTC One s 9 hours and 28 minutes of entertainment, while le iPhone 4S still you wake with just 4 minutes of difference. Already at more than 40 minutes away, are the Nokia N9, Samsung Galaxy Note and Samsung Galaxy S2.
