By  | 

Three of the best handsets are the Samsung Galaxy S3, the Apple iPhone 5 and the Samsung Galaxy Note 2. But which device is the best when it comes down to battery life and how do they compare against the likes of the Motorola RAZR MAXX which focuses mainly on battery life.

One of the things anyone purchasing a new handset considers is the battery life of the device. RootInstaller recently undertook a test to see which of the handsets, along with the Motorola Razr Maxx, had the best battery.

Motorola has seen great success with their Maxx range of devices. However don’t get confused over the Motorola Razr Maxx and the Motorola Razr. Both of the handsets come with displays of 4.3 inches and they do have similar looks to them. However they have different batteries and thicknesses. The Razr Maxx comes with a battery of 3300mAh and you should get up to two days life from it when using it on average. This is the battery that other devices have to beat.

The Samsung Galaxy S3 comes with a display of 4.8 inches and there is also the dual core processor. If you do not play games heavily or videos, then you may get around one day’s use.

The Samsung Galaxy Note 2 comes with a large 5.5 inch display and the battery is 3100mAh. Despite the device coming with a large battery, it doesn’t manage as well as the Samsung Galaxy S3. Therefore the battery is not one of the reasons why the device has been so popular.

When it comes to the Apple iPhone 5 the battery is better is some ways than any of the other devices. The screen is 4 inches and the device is thin, so it was a challenge for Apple to make the battery larger. You should be able to get a day’s use from the device. The Apple iPhone 4S came out better than the Apple iPhone 5 did and this was perhaps down to the fact that the display is smaller and the handset doesn’t support LTE.
