Battery discharge characteristics are not linier, it depends on temperature too, in my experience, 75% - 40% of battery capacity, will drop much longer than other range capacity (with same testing parameters)
mwhelan, 13 Mar 2016bought one, I find the battery life really no better than the S6. The battery will last a day... moreThats so bad, you should return your phone to the store you bought from, because mine has reached 6 hours of screen on time.
Anonymous, 13 Mar 2016did you really just write that over 80mha? That's not the point and as someone else pointed out Mi4s has 3280 mAh. Try to understand the point behind the post if you can.
Yousef Al Salmi, 13 Mar 2016You didn't mention if this is Snapdragon or Exynos Did you even read the review? Exynos
I'm a Nokia Lumia 1520 user. The phone boasts a 3400maH battery which is good to go for 2 days. Very happy about everything this phone offers except the lack of useful apps. I would buy any other flagship when it comes with a 4000maH or more battery capacity, no matter user replaceable or not. Nobody cared for their customers as Nokia did. Waiting for their come back in 2017. I won't ever fall for a flagship with 2k or 4k screen who offers battery capacity as less as 2800 maH or less. That is not really smart ! Chinese smartphones prove, how they can pack a lot of powerful features for a price tag of 400-500$ They are the answer to the so-called flagship killers. I would wait for another 2 years for somebody to launch a better smart phone.
Not crazy about the battery life either. Phone was at 95% and I scrolled through my FB news feed for about 15 minutes, not watching any videos, just scrolling and it went down to 88%. Don't see how it would last 9 hours.
bought one, I find the battery life really no better than the S6. The battery will last a day with light usage. 11 hours off the charger, two hours screen time, used to surf web and take pictures...was down to 15%. I'm truly disappointed. These tests don't tell the whole story...
signal strength is excellent, no wifi, no bluetooth...love the form factor, but it will most likely go back in the return window....

its seems that the people arguing about this fact, doesn't have an original or best manufacturing quality phones... in my area, its the Vietnamese manufactured phones considered having the best quality
Anonymous, 13 Mar 2016Batteries do not degrade that quickly.Yeah they do. Apple claims up to 500 cycles for their iPhone battery which is a bit shorter than 2 years if you go through a charging cycle every day.
Don't expect better or worse from others; it's just the current battery technology.
To my experience, every mobile that has bellow 75h in gsmarena test is a phone i cannot live with. This just prooves that S7 can make the day with a user that buys a flagship to use its capabilities. I expect the s7 edge to top it and offer a decent battery life for a trendy thin phone.
My golden standard is the LG G2, that despite its sealed battery and supposed degradation can still outlast G3, G4 and G5.
Last year the flagships had terrible battery life because they were chasing the iphone's 7mm thickness at the expense of battery capacity.
Another culprit was the 2.5k resolution. Unlike LG, Samsung returned to reason and added decent battery capacity to the evergrowing energy needs of latest flagships.
Noone who is paying premium to get such a flagship will keep it for more than 2 years, so up untill then, there wont be any battery issues, the one who will buy it second hand after 2 years, must buy a new battery from a Samsung service store and pay the extra 15$ to them, to have it installed without the risks a third party store involves both for the quality of the battery and the installment!

And when I say noticeably I mean enough to notice, even after that they still last more than long enough. It would still be better than a fresh battery in the g5
Anonymous, 13 Mar 2016I Love my Samsung S4 more and more when i read these reviews....Same as you bro i know that feeling
Kartik07, 13 Mar 2016It will increase alot after some update same as s6 last year nd will be more better in performanceYeah I'm thinking it will. It looks to be just poor optimisation when only one task (web browsing) pulls it down.
lagwiz is still lagging.
want a proof? go visit a website with many many articles in one page. then scroll it up and down. you'll see the miserable lag.
Wonder what happened with web browsing, it pulled the overall endurance rating lower than I thought it would. The s5 had a 2800mah battery and 83 hours endurance rating, its disappointing that the s7 couldn't even match it.
