Autonomy of smartphones is a very individual thing. It depends not only on how you use your device, but also how you perceive its service life without recharging. Some people, for example, believe that a smartphone should work from morning until evening, when it can be plugged in again. Htsyo, on the other hand, sincerely believes that a week is a necessary minimum that every mobile gadget should take.
Rating of autonomy of smartphones 2020
The test that made it possible to make this rating was to continuously browse sites at LTE speeds. This may not be the most objective experiment, as it did not include video viewing, calls, or photography. But, given that we all have different scenarios for using smartphones, it will be possible to call objective only the test that each of us will conduct independently.
- Moto G Power (5000 mAh) – 16:10
- Moto G7 Power (5000 mAh) – 15:35
- Asus ZenFone 6 (5000 mAh) – 15:01
- Samsung Galaxy A20 (4000 mAh) – 13:46
- LG V60 ThinQ 5G (5000 mAh) – 12:46
- Samsung Galaxy S10 Plus (4100 mAh) – 12:35
- Moto G Fast (4000 mAh) – 12:17
- Moto G Stylus (4000 mAh) – 12:13
- Motorola Edge (4500 mAh) – 12:12
- Samsung Galaxy S20 Ultra (5000 mAh) – 11:58
- iPhone 11 Pro Max (3969 mAh) – 11:54
- LG G8X ThinQ Dual Screen (4000 mAh) – 11:46
- Moto Z4 (3600 mAh) – 11:31
- iPhone 11 (3110 mAh) – 11:16
- OnePlus 8 Pro (4510 mAh) – 11:05
As you can see, in most cases, the top are smartphones with the largest battery capacity, although, of course, there are enough exceptions. For example, it is strange to see at the end of the list Galaxy S20 Utra with a battery of 5000 mAh and iPhone 11 Pro Max, which, although equipped with a battery of less than 4000 mAh, still has a high class optimization, so it could well if not lead this top, then at least stay somewhere in the middle.
What determines the charging of the smartphone
On the other hand, keep in mind that the processor and graphics accelerator also affect autonomy. I’m not talking about energy efficiency now, but about their computing power, which consumes more resources than it saves. After all, almost the entire top of the ranking consists of inexpensive devices with weak iron, which is not able to spend a lot of energy. The statistics are not spoiled even by the LG V60, which, having one of the most powerful hardware to date and a 5000 mAh battery, lives only 12 hours 46 minutes – almost an hour less than the budget Galaxy A20 with a battery 20% less.
What conclusion can be drawn from this? If you are looking for a flagship smartphone, it is not worth hoping that it will live for weeks on a single charge. Productive hardware and a high-resolution screen will simply not allow it to last that long. But if the computing power and functional content do not play a primary role for you, you can pay attention to the budget model line, which is naturally cheaper than the flagships, and lives from charging longer.
