Which phone has the best battery life in 2018?
If you are looking for a phone that you know will last you through the longest of days or if you want to avoid buying a phone with poor battery life, you need to know those battery numbers.
We have tested all major new phones available right now in 2018 and we have found that battery life depends not only on the battery size, but on a number of other variables from software to display quality and other optimizations.
Of course, measuring battery life is complicated and it varies a lot depending on how you use your phone. For OLED screens, every single pixel matters and if you look at a picture with a lot of whites it would drain more than a photo with darker colors because every individual pixel consumes energy there, unlike the one backlight for the whole screen of LCD displays. And then there is standby that is a topic of a different discussion. Keeping all of these many disclaimers in mind, we ran our proprietary benchmark test that is the same across different devices and we have set the brightness of screens at the same level to keep things on equal terms. Here are the results that we've got:
