Samsung Galaxy S6 vs iPhone 6 Battery Life: Shocking Results

By  | 

Sure, developers have been coming out with bigger phones with bigger displays (note: 4K) and even with bigger batteries to make up for the extra juice it needs to power the display. But do you think that these bigger batteries really have a longer battery life as compared to small phones with smaller batteries? But is Samsung and Apple really giving us what we want? Which of these two scores better in the battery life chart?

The Galaxy S6 has a 2550 mAh battery (wireless charging), whereas the iPhone 6 is a 1810 mAh battery; but both of these are non-removable (Samsung has long made the switch to rule out removable batteries). With a bigger battery, the S6 just proves that it could produce more of that extra juice than that of the iPhone 6, though we’ll have to admit that these two could have a hard time staying “alive” if they were to stay out through the night. Regardless, Samsung does a slightly better job for offering a power-saving mode that restrains battery-draining, and you cannot deny the fact that the S6’s wireless charging is a darn cool (and effective) feature.

With all that being said, we don’t think it might strike as a big surprise for some, as the Galaxy S6 is clearly the winner when it comes to having a longer battery lifespan. But if we were to talk about features (like the 3D Touch iPhone has), we’ll probably leave that for another time. In the meantime, Apple fans better accept the fact that the S6’s battery life wins them over, hands down.
