Samsung Galaxy S3 vs iPhone 5 vs Samsung Galaxy Note 2 vs Motorola DROID RAZR MAXX: battery life test

One of the bug bears to owners of smartphones is how long the battery will last. RootInstaller tested the battery life on four of the most popular devices on the market, with the list of these being updated on 18th December.

Motorola have enjoyed a great deal of success with their Maxx range of devices and there are many Motorola Razr variations of these. However you should not get the Motorola Razr Maxx and the Motorola Razr confused. They do share a screen of 4.3 inches; have a design that is very similar, apart from the thickness, due to the battery. The Razr Maxx had the large 3300mAh battery and this lasts over three days under normal use.

The Samsung Galaxy S3 comes with power consumption for the large 4.8 inch display along with the dual core processor. This means that providing you don’t play a lot of games and don’t use GPS a lot, you can expect around two days out of the battery found the blog. However if you use the Samsung Galaxy S3 more intensively then you may drain the battery down in less than one day. The 4G LTE version, except that of T-Mobile, will use lesser load, even with the handset being connected to 3G.

The Samsung Galaxy Note 2 has a large 5.5 inch display and it has a battery of 3100mAh. Thanks to the larger than average battery, you can get around two days use from the device. The Galaxy Note 2 has been very popular, despite it being difficult to manage if you have small hands. The battery has been one reason and the other the superb features.

The Apple iPhone 5 does have a better battery when compared to other models. Thanks to the large display and the device being thinner, increasing the life of the battery was a challenge for Apple. You can get around one days’ worth of use from the Apple iPhone 5 says RI, with 1 hour playing 3D games, 1 hour talking, 1 hour surfing and the rest being shared with social networking, checking emails and on standby.
