iPhone 5 vs Samsung Galaxy S3 vs Samsung Galaxy Note 2: battery life test results

When buying a handset one of the things that most smartphone owners worry about is battery life in real world usage situations. Recently RootInstaller tested the batteries on four of the best handsets on the smartphone market. Their results are as per below.

Motorola have seen success with the Maxx range of handsets and there are quite a few versions of the Motorola Razr. One thing you don’t want to do and that is to get the Motorola Razr Maxx confused with the Motorola Razr. Both have the same 4.3 inch display and their design is very similar, except for the thickness, which is down to the battery. The Razr Maxx has the 3300mAh battery, and under normal use, this would last for around three days says RI.

The Samsung Galaxy S3 takes the 4.8 inch display and the dual core processor into account. So if you don’t play games for hours on end, or use GPS a lot, you should be able to get around two days from the battery. On the other hand if you use the device intensively then you can expect the battery of the handset to drain down and not provide you with even a full day’s use. Lesser load is on the 4G LTE version of the Samsung Galaxy S3 as compared to the 3G version that T-Mobile has.

The Samsung Galaxy Note 2 comes with a display of 5.5 inches and the handset has a 3100mAh battery. As it does have a battery that is larger than average, it provides you with around two days use says RootInstaller. The Samsung Galaxy Note 2 has been very popular, even though the device is not the easiest to manage with small hands. The many great features have made it popular, along with the large battery. Of course, once again if used intensively it will give you no more than a day’s use.

The Apple iPhone 5 battery is better than batteries found on other iPhones. Apple had to make the battery larger thanks to the device having a display. You should be able to get a full days use of the Apple iPhone 5 with intensive use and should have a decent amount of battery life left when you hit the nightstand.

RI explains that intensive use refers to 1 hour of 3D games, 1 hour of talking, 1 hour of surfing and the rest of the time shared out with email checking, social networking and the device being on standby.
