Battery life is arguably the most finicky heavily-argued part of the ‘phone reviewing process. Different reviewers try everything to try and get an objective battery life, from custom-built apps, to the elusive ‘normal-use’, or just looping Nyan Cat until your brain explodes. Question is, what test would you like to see the full gamut of high-end smartphones tortured with?
I’ll let you in on a little secret — we’re planning on running a series of battery tests on a bunch of handsets in the near future, in a (probably futile) attempt to get a real, scientific look at which phone has the best battery life.
Of course, ‘best’ battery life is an elusive crown. How long a phone lasts isn’t just a matter of how big a battery it has, or how big and bright the screen is. Though those are certainly factors, there’s a bunch of other stuff like the specific software, and how a user uses the phone which really determines whether a handset makes it through a day or not.
So the question is: what test (and be realistic, please — we can’t play Angry Birds on ten different phones until they die, because, just no.), would you like to see conducted? Let us know below!
