The Samsung Galaxy S3, Galaxy Note 2, Motorola Droid Razr Maxx and Apple iPhone 5 have been in competition, but which of these will last the longest on a single charge?

RI’s battery life test: Samsung Galaxy S3 vs iPhone 5 vs Note 2 vs RAZR MAXX

One of the main issues with smartphones is the lack of battery life. RootInstaller recently did a battery test on four of the most popular handsets of 2012 and their results have been published.

One of the devices that have been successful is the Motorola Razr Maxx. This handset should not be confused with the standard Razr however. Both devices come with 4.3 inch displays and they do have similar looks. However the Razr Maxx is the thicker of the two thanks to it having a battery of 3300mAh, which provides around three days of use.

The Samsung Galaxy Note 2 comes with a large 5.5 inch display and this has a battery of 3100mAh. You can get up to two days use with a single charge. The Samsung Galaxy Note 2 has been a popular device; however it can be hard to hold if you have small hands. The battery has helped to boost popularity, plus the many great features.

The Samsung Galaxy S3 and its dual core processor will last you a day at most iffor medium usage. This is further cut down if you use LTE through the day.

The battery of the Apple iPhone 5 is better than previous batteries from Apple. However with the device having such a thin body and a larger display, it falls below the iPhone 4S. You should get around one days use, with an hour of playing 3D games, talking, surfing and sharing between social networking, emailing and having the device on standby.

Overall, RootIntaller found that the Motorola DROID RAZR MAXX made it to 3 days with lights usage, the Samsung Galaxy S3 and Note 2 with 2 days, and the iPhone 5 with just 1. However with medium to heavy usage it was only the RAZR MAXX that was still running past the 24 hour mark, making it the last phone standing.
