Best phone battery life in 2020: The longest lasting smartphones
These are the smartphones with the best phone battery life based on our tests
If great endurance is at the top of your list when you're shopping for a smartphone, the devices that earned a spot on our best phone battery life list is the place to start.
Smartphone batteries are getting larger and larger — the latest flagships from Samsung and LG feature massive 5,000 mAh batteries — with the promise of phones that can go all day on a single charge. But which devices can really boast that they provide the best battery life for phones?
In our battery test, we have phones continuously surf the web over LTE or 5Guntil they run out of juice. The average phone lasts around 10 hours, but the phones we’ve highlighted here held out for at least 11 hours.
