Ppl will probably wait 3 more years to see an iPhone with at least 3100mAh.
Sony phones despite having low mah have good battery.

However, before doing so we looked at the data and found that the average (mean and median) brightness of all phones we had tested up to that point is almost exactly 200nits. This I think works quite well when looking at average battery life.
For me honestly battery endurance means "Screen on time" only. Most of the people now a days using mobile for social media, internet surfing & games.... the bad part is every company is trying to made their mobiles as much thin as they can. But they should think about the battery too. Which is really matters.
My Last 2 Android devices, Samsung s3 and note 2 both had removable batteries which I put in an extended 3rd party type. The s3 went from a poor 1 day to 3 days heavy usage and when I went with the note 2 I went a massive 9300mAh zero lemon battery and got 5 days usage with heavy use.
My n8 now gets me by day to day but the nokn removable battery is a problem with me.
I have seen the zero lemon power cases but yeh we will see.
I would prefer companies stop sugar coating the handsets with fast chargers so they can use a smaller battery and get away with it because of the claim it can be charged in seconds and last you another 5 seconds.
I don't have the luxury of being behind a desk all the time.

i like to use longer battery mobile phones. my nokia e63 gave me 2 days power in one full charge. Now my redmi note 4 gives me 1 and half day until 20 percent. i also used sony xperia z for 1 month which gave me half day in one full charge. terrible capacity. i played games a lot on all.
Hoping for flagships to cross 100 hours mark

I do wish that we could enjoy BOTH an impressive preformance. (for a girl like me. MORE POWER=THE BETTER! is my motto) and an excellent Endurance and not compromise on either of them.
P.S. 10th comment! haha~
9rd comment haha.
My Sony Ericsson T630 fired up years (!) after being stored away, same with my Nokia E61i, I know they aren't "smartphones" but the standby time exceeds anything made today.
Sony Ericsson used Lithium Polymer batteries and somehow they lasted forever.
And just to cap it off, my Samsung Note 4 at least had the ability to pop in a freshly charged battery any time. Now we're stuck with whatever manufacturers decide is enough.
Anonymous, 28 Jan 2018Samsung best battery'sLOL that's a good one. Since size is laughable, what are they good in? Swelling? I'd agree with that.
endurance is so heavily relied on the firmware. I have a Samsung A9 Pro, the 5000mah can last 1 day only with stock Samsung rom, after a year I replaced the battery and installed a clean rom, the phone can last for 4 days or 15 days standby.
I don't know how GSMArena get their battery endurance ratings of 70-90 hours when the average Screen-On-Time of smartphones today is only 4 to 6 hours. You can only actively use your smartphone for not more than 6 hours on average per full charge. So how do get 70 hourd endurance rating?
1st answer: its the Endurance Rating based on GSMArena's testing profile. It's basically how many hours you can use it with 1 hour of 3G calls, 1 hour of video playback, 1 hour of web browsing daily, then set on standby. You can learn more here:
However, this entire article is wrong/flawed because GSMArena's testing, especially before 2016, is flawed because of their differential screen brightness level, video media used during playback, differences in software, and the introduction of LTE into the market. Essentially a current phone (2018) might have a similar figure to a phone much older (2013), but the older phone was tested using a dimmer screen, lower quality/less taxing video, and slower Data Connection. Or quite the opposite, a new phone (2017) might have drastically higher Endurance Rating figure than an older phone (2014), and the older phone may have used the same Data Connection and Taxing Video Playback, but the older phone may have been tested at a much higher brightness rating (eg 310 nits) as opposed to the new device being tested at the standard 200 nits level. We will never know which scenarios come into play on certain handsets, the only solution would be to source Hundreds of phones, and refurbish them with Fresh Batteries, and run a properly controlled Scientific experiment on all of them.
