Longest battery life android smartphone 2018?

#1
Hello!
I am a big gamer on my Samsung 5s but sometimes the battery drains too much while I play.
I was looking to upgrade to something better.
Which android smartphones have the best battery life ?
I am trying to get one if it has a battery life of at least 3 hours playing time with full capacity.
Any phones like that out there ?
Thank you.

Well in terms of capacity , the higher mAh of the smartphones battery specification the longer hours of usage. There are smartphone models nowadays that goes up to 5300mAh, normal battery usually goes from 2000mAh - 3500mAh.

You can check some new models here with high battery specifications:

If you want to save some money, i suggest a portable charger for extra power... if your smartphone still functions fine.

I hope this helps:coffee:!

Would suggest the same thing: Get a powerbank or keep your smartphone plugged in. I know it can be annoying to play when a cable is plugged in, but it's all I can help you with.

Also, it's not really recommended to play games for 3 hours non-stop. I don't want to sound like your average anti-gaming mom, but take enough breaks in between.

Thank you for the link provided.
Do you have any favorites of yours ?
3 hours playing, full capacity battery would be great.
If you, do let me know.
I am checking out the link.

I don't have any particular brands or model in my favorite list but i have been using SAMSUNG smartphones for my personal use. In order for you to calculate the power rating of your phone you should check the specification of your phone. Its usually written on the battery itself or in the manual provided by the manufacturer

You can try using battery calculators online that is very helpful in determining your phone battery capability. Again you need to have the information coming from your phones specifications.

Here's are some battery calculators for your reference...

There is no way I could believe that a phone can have almost 17 hours of a battery life.
That is insane.
What I find funny is that phones that hit that 10+ hours mark are usually not those that advertise the most like Samsung and Apple.
I wonder what makes these phones last so long.

It is because they pay attention more to the performance.
Looks is not their top priority.They want their phones to last, since, when you think about it, 10 years ago those types of phones were selling in hundreds of millions of copies all around the world, so it is no wonder why are ''modern'' phones like that still popular.Not just iPhone and Samsung.

I too would love to add a high capacity battery phone to my wish list. I have a lower end LG phone and it seems like I spend my life charging my phone battery. I am always consumed by how much battery I have and how fast it is draining. I love LG but not the battery issue.

Asus Max series has a pretty huge battery. I think it is 5000 mah. It is good for watching movies, and playing games for longer period. Of course, charging it will also be longer than usual. I think Lenovo also has phones that has higher than 5000 mah. I don't know if it is legit 5000+ mah. Asus phones are good for gaming because of the large battery capacity.

I, too once had a Samsung 5s. At first I think, generally Samsung batteries are long lasting until you often charge it while using it because that mainly destroys the battery's life. I think you have to focus on the quality of graphics your screen can provide and then later on purchase a new unit of a phone that's been reviewed as remarkable on gaming experience and use it correctly. You know like charge it when the battery's really almost dead and not to take it out of the charger until it is full.

I Phone XR has four hours of gaming time, I am not sure if you would prefer moving over to a I phone, but this seems like a good route if you are looking for good quality and game time.

I would recommend Nokia. They are underrated and still struggling to get on the market since that Windows fiasco, so they are not expensive, but they are still Nokia. So if you are willing to try something different, I would definitely recommend one of their phones. Nokia 7.1 has great 3000 mah battery. It has good duration and it still charges fairly quickly

I suggest you to try the Xiaomi Pocophone F1. It's a very powerful device but affordable at the same time. It has 4000 mAH that can lasts for two days. As you said, you're a gamer well this is perfect for you because it has SD845 processor. It's a very snappy device.
