Battery life testing at 50% brightness is not the best approach as display technologies handle brightness percentages differently. It would be better if this method is changed from brightness percentage to brightness level (200 cd/m2 or 250 cd/m2. This will make the test more practical.

Why are no Lenovo models like the p780, s860, and Z2 Vibe Pro, included in the battery tests? They have 4000mah power and I am sure their battery test results would be interesting to compare with other more popular brands.

Hello,
given common use cases of the mobile phones nowadays, which include GPS navigation, it would be great if the testing could measure also the navigation. Although the laboratory test limitations it will be useful to us. For example, high precision location acquired with a fixed timestep, screen on, and cell phone located on a rotating device, so that "google maps" is forced to redraw the map.
Best regards.

Hi,

Your setup for the testing is not detailed enough, is the gps or bluetooth on? is power saver mode on or off?

More info will give us a more accurate comparison.
And it will be nice if you include testing on a 4g/3g connection instead of wifi. I think many of us don't connect to wifi all the time, but on cellular network most of the time.

Thanks.

Hey gsmarena why dont you include gaming test in battery test. Its important. You can run temple run in the test. I think all upcoming phones in 2014 can run temple run. Hope you take my comment in consideration.

I'm a little disappointed with the battery life test, as with many other users, I believe that when watching movies, the brightness should be set 100% and an HD video playback, since most users will be watching in that definition. Lastly,I find it odd that nobody has mentioned how inaccurate it would be to leave it in airplane mode while watching a video. I believe that most of us will watch videos on our phone while airplane mode is off. The next tests should have all these in for a more accurate reading. Otherwise, the ideology of testing battery life would be redundant. The idea of turning on airplane mode while watching is as if you're trying to save the battery life when battery life tests are all about how quick tasks drains batteries, please do change the concept.
