SmartPhones With Best Battery Life (2017)
What smartphone users hate the most is running out of juice when they need it most. For this reason, among the factors to take into account when deciding what smartphone to purchase, tech experts recommend battery life as the most important thing to look out for.
Top Phones In Terms Of Battery Life
According to ExpertReviews, as each year progresses, battery life is generally getting better. After a full charge, some smartphones can even hit its second day of intensive use. The days when only some flagships provided the best battery life are also over. Now, some cheap options are making it into the spotlight.
With moderate use, usually, a phone can last a full work day. Of course, in case that the phone is used heavily, it requires more often a recharge. Over time, batteries can also lose their initial capacity. The longer you own the phone, the faster they are running down.
These days, most phones feature a bigger battery than the previous phone generations.
