Here is the smartphone with the best battery life – but do you believe the claims?


Samsung has released a video that compares the battery life of all the major flagship smartphones – and you’ll never be able to guess which phone came out on top.

Unsurprisingly, the test carried out by Samsung, found that the smartphone with the best battery life was Samsung’s very own Galaxy S7, followed closely by the Galaxy S7 Edge, which both overcame rival devices from LG, HTC, Huawei and Apple.

The findings, which should probably be taken with a giant pinch of salt found that the battery on a Samsung Galaxy S7 is able to keep going for 10 hours 59 minutes, while the S7 Edge had 10 hours and 30 minutes battery life.

The batteries on the two Samsung devices outlasted its rivals by some distance, according the to the video uploaded to YouTube by Samsung Deutschland.

The nearest rival was the iPhone 6S which lasted 8 hours and 13 minutes, although still  someway short of the Samsung smartphones.

In fourth place was the HTC 10 which lasted exactly 8 hours, with the Sony Xperia following just behind at 7 hours and 17 minutes.

Next was the Huawei P9 which lasted 6 hours and 51 minutes, but the smartphone with the worst battery life was the LG G5 which was shown to last only 6 hours and 31 minutes.

Samsung hasn’t actually offered any real details about the requirements of the test, other than to say all the smartphones featured were “tested on equal terms”.

The release of the battery test video comes as the Korean tech giant is about to launch its latest flagship smartphone – the Galaxy Note 7 on August 2nd.

The Note 7 is set to be Samsung’s most powerful smartphone ever and will feature the trademark S Pen, as well as a rumoured Exynos 8893 processor alongside 4GB of RAM.

Images leaked earlier this month claim the device will be available in a choice of black, silver and blue
