Powerful Phones with Extraordinary Battery Life
There's long-lasting phones, and then there's the ZenFone 3 Zoom. The latest phone from Asus may boast dual rear cameras with an optical zoom, but the phone's true standout feature is its long-lasting battery life. Put simply, the ZenFone 3 Zoom is the longest-lasting smartphone we've ever tested.
My OnePlus 3 has been really good since I got it almost 2 years ago, but the battery life has gotten rather poor since "upgrading" to Android 8.0. So I'm looking to buy a phone with exaggerated battery life this time. tomsguide said the OnePlus 3 only had 8.5hrs of life on their standard test to begin with which pales in comparison to some of the phones on the above list as of 2/5/18.
The only problem is that there is no high-end phone with over 13hrs battery life that isn't the Hauwei Mate 10 Pro. FYI, tomsguide claims that they test all phones using the same basic parameters:
When testing phones, we set each phone's display to 150 nits to normalize for brightness and make sure each handset is receiving at least three bars of service. Just to put this performance in context, the average smartphone lasts 9:40 on our test before running out of power.
Does anyone have experience with another phone? I'm reading great reviews about the Hauwei Mate 10 Pro, but it would be nice to have some choices near the same battery level. The closest competitor is the Google Pixel 2 XL, but its still 2.5hrs behind.
