Android smartphones with the best battery life

One of the factors that influences smartphone purchasing decisions the most is battery life. At present, any phone that can last an entire day is considered good (yes, we know, it's not how it used to be). But, among all Android phones, which are the best?

In the curation of this list, we have taken account of benchmark test results and our editors' real world experiences with the different devices. These excellent Android smartphones aren't listed in any particular order, and any listed here will provide you with above average battery life.

1. Huawei P20 Pro

Chinese manufacturer Huawei continues its rise to prominence even as the US market becomes increasingly difficult. The last flagship, the Huawei P20 Pro packs a 4,000 mAh battery into its slim, elegant body. Expectations for battery life were high after the Mate 10 Pro, and the newcomer didn't disappoint.

Using the smartphone intensively to call, text, email,  Facebook and Instagram, take photos, navigate with Google Maps and play some videos on YouTube, the P20 Pro managed to stay alive for about 1 day and 13 hours, with 20% battery life still available. Various tweaks and optimizations can be used to suit your habits and prolong the battery even more.

2. Huawei Mate 10 Pro

The Mate 10 Pro has stood the test of time, and still ranks as one of the best options for the battery. We were able to test the Mate 10 Pro extensively, and it lasted a whole weekend without needing to be plugged in.

The Mate 10 Pro's 4,000 mAh battery has lightning-fast quick charge capability. After 30 minutes the original accessory charges from 0 to 58 percent. However, wireless charging is not available and the battery cannot be easily replaced.

3. Sony Xperia XZ2 Compact

This compact smartphone with a 2, 870 mAh battery is able to outlast most flagships when it comes to battery life. With its power saving modes active, the smartphone is able to last two days.

However, be warned that the energy saving options can be less helpful depending on your use. The energy savers can end up really slowing down the performance of the XZ2 Compact, and if everything is taking longer to load and run over a long session, then you battery might not be being saved so much.

4. Sony Xperia XZ2

Keeping with tradition, the new Xperia XZ offers great battery life, although it's just a few hours less than the compact version. Although the 3180 mAh battery doesn't seem so much on paper, the phone is capable of incredibly long life thanks also to the Sony's software features for energy saving and intelligent charging via USB Type C.

The smartphone can safely provide more than 7 hours of screen time over one or even two days of use. If you're thrifty, I’m sure you can even reach 3 or 4 days of minimal use like quick calls, web queries and the occasional social media check-in.

5. Samsung Galaxy A8 (2018)

The Galaxy A8 (2018), Samsung's renewed mid-range of the year, brings an enhanced design that evokes the fabulous S-class.

The new Galaxy A8 accommodates continues the tradition of endurance characteristic smartphones in the A series. The battery capacity is strong: the Galaxy A8 comes with a 3000 mAh battery. In everyday use, you will easily be able to use the phone for two days with some left over. If you’re a smartphone addict it will still last you a day and a half.

6. Nokia 7 Plus

Nokia has a good reputation when it comes to battery life, and the new 7 Plus clocks in as a smartphone with one of the most durable batteries around right now. In everyday use, it;s easy to get two days of full use without sacrificing GPS, Wi-Fi, 4G, or power-hungry apps.

The 3800 mAh battery combined with optimized software and decent but not overwhelming technical specifications guarantees excellent battery life. Charging is via the USB Type-C port and fast charging supports 5V/3A, 9V/2A or 12V/1.5A standards.

    Its not a rocket science to develop phone with 4000mAh battery last 6-7 hours SoT, quite oposite, its a shame and waste of system optimization. You should rate the phone with average battery life per 100mAh, then it should be more accurate.

      Why would I care for that!?
      OEMs could use that info in marketing, but it's all.

      My only concern is will it last whole day, no matter what I do with it.
      So, when they say 7h of SoT, and " whole day" battery, that means it's not good enough for me.

    I've had 3 Huawei phones. Mate2,8,9 The Mate2 won me over on battery life & how stable it was, so it was a no brainer to get the 8. Sold the 8 to a coworker who needed to replace a faulty older phone, so updated to the 9. 1 day of super heavy use is super easy, moderate use can yield 2 days.

    I'm writing this from a Lenovo P2 which has a 5100mah battery. in my opinion the best there if on the market.

    GSM arena do in depths reviews of all phones and this tops the list. I'm coming from the 6P which we mediocre.

    I use satnav, Bluetooth, YouTube, messaging a lot of phonecalls, Kindle for reading and it uses about 35% per day.

    This is the best I have ever used.

    check out GSM arenas battery tests..

      From the Stylo 2 on, the double-size battery is also user-replaceable---a nice feature. So, you could have a spare battery charging externally while the phone is in use. I think it's the same one as in the V-10.

    An article on best battery life and no mention of the phones that are specifically DESIGNED for long battery life? As in, Motorola Maxx, Maxx HD and now Maxx 2 which boasts a 48 hour battery. Sure, real world test would be less, but none of these would last 48 hours even in standby mode. Here's a better article that doesn't even consider phones that are under 4000mAh: webcusp.com/smartphone-with-a-heavy-battery-between-4000-to-7000-mah/

    The S7 note has a chance to throw a 4000 mah battery in it


    And with Lg smartphone products on the brink of total failure, Lg should have a phone with at least 4000 mah. Nobody wants to be screwing around with changing batteries. Besides it interfers with the build quality. Lg take your time Im a Samsung owner but I have a few Lg products around the house that are great. Really evaluate this next phones specs and what the people are looking for. No gimmicks. please Lgg5

    In the past I had an Xperia Z3 and using it continuously I was unable to get more than 3 hours of screen on time. I don't think it has really a good battery life.
    Now I use a Galaxy A5 2016 and on same conditions I get 8 hours of continuous usage. The Galaxy S7 edge listed here could also be a good option but not as good as A5 2016 because of its high resolution and speed, which consumes much power.

    LG Volt Ls-740. Definitely a budget phone (about $70) on a budget pre-paid network (boost mobile) but with normal use I can get 48 hours on a single charge and 72 hours with light usage. I took it off the charger at 6am this morning. With normal use at 4pm it still had 80% left.

    Phone is relatively easy to root as well.

    This guy should not be reviewing phones or he is writing the reviews without actually testing the device. How could anyone suggest OnePlus with battery life? If you luck out and get a phone with a good battery you have very short phone life even with the utmost tweaks. The fact he mentioned OnePlus and their poor customer service that takes months and costs money even under warranty shows he knows nothing of what he writes. OnePlus never even sent back my phone and I had to buy another for a review. I wonder if the author wants to buy it? He has the best battery life ratings measured simply by capacity and that is it. He must have almost missed a deadline. Lame.

      That is so true! I just switched over to Android from my Lumia 640 and my OnePlus 2 has a very short battery life. In contrast, I could use my Lumia all day and still have at least 60-70 percent battery life at the end of it. I'm going to look a bit further into this issue -- perhaps I can make adjustments to my Oneplus 2 (besides the ones I've already made) so I can extend battery life. If not, I'm going to TRY to return the dang thing (have heard about the bad customer service).

    You want to know what the phone with the best battery life is? That is easy, any phone with a removable battery. One runs down put in a new one full charge in less than a minute. So many people I know are always so worried about their battery life. I never worry I always have a spare or two ready to go.

      Nice one Mark- spare REMOVABLE batteries- the only way to go. A gold and diamond encrusted phone will look like any phone when in a case, so bring back the featherweight strong as heck plastic back. Stick premium where the sun doesn't shine. I want usability and efficiency, not making a phone the prettiest thing on the block.

        You are right Greg. I will take a removable plastic back phone with the functionality it brings over metal or glass any day. I do like what LG did with the G5 and some reviewers are having a cow over it. I just don't get it. They won't be happy until every phone looks like the IPhone.

        Getting a new battery is one of the main reasons I'd get a new phone after 2.5 years with this one. But it's not so terrible that I couldn't go another year or so with my current one, which I will do if there haven't been improvements in battery life since I got this one.

      The Samsung Galaxy S6 has a smaller battery than its predecessor – down from 2,800mAh to 2,550mAh. You have to use its Ultra Power Saving Mode, otherwise it barely stays on at 8pm.
      Apart from that, I am quite in agreement with the Sony Xperia Z3 compact: my wife had one of these little beasts for one year and a half and she used it without aggressive power saving options for 2 days in a row (now I have bought her another smartphone, but this is another story).

    It's too bad that you included Oneplus in this article. Because you did, now I can't recommend to anyone to read it. Any phone from Oneplus is a disaster just waiting to happen. Atrocious customer service and warranty support, along with NO software support should dissuade everyone from buying from that childish run company.

    There's a reason their phones are cheap.

I have tried all the other flagship phones and under the same circumstances they are from 20 to 50% battery left. How does Apple do it when I even have it connected to Wifi all day?

      Agreed, I have my old iPhone 4 laying around. Whenever I charge it to 100% it will sit for 4-5 days before it's drained. I think the iPhone 6 series doesn't last as long, but still. My wife has an iPhone 6 and her battery is never a problem and she's on it almost nonstop all day.

        Jim your commeny is sort of wanting me to ditch Android and switch to an iPhone. But when I think of entering Apple's perfumed and drugged walled garden where nothing is under my control, well no thank you.

        It just goes to show that more battery capacity doesn't always mean longer battery life.

        Some iPhones last longer than Android devices, even though they have smaller battery capacity, simply because they require less power to run.

      This again shows that it's not the battery capacity that matters ultimately. It's the OS and how much power it eats.

    As an older phone, I get better battery life with my 'LG G2' than my 'LG G3'. They both have a 3000 mAh battery, but the G2 has a 1080p display vs a QHD for the G3. I feel safer with the G2 outside in the real world than with the G3.

      Hi, I really get your point of view. I actually had a LG G2 and was proud of its endurance and overall performance. Unfortunately, with the OS update, also came a worst battery life, because with Lollipop the antennae started to always be in use...
      Now I am the proud owner of a Moto X play and feel like a better LG G2 experience.

    I thought the title was "Android smartphones with the best battery life" and not "Description of battery life for some of the phones that I happen to know".
    One of the best android phones for battery life is the Motorola Moto X Play (which is sold under different names in the USA), with its 3650 mAh and almost no bloatware pre-installed. And this is just an example.
    Plus, considering as 'best' what will maybe last you a day (2600 mAh!? have you read comments by real users of HTC One M8?), means that you better go to sell hot-dogs at the corner of the street.
    Useless reading, and I am furious for this Androidpit's bad turn.

    Guys just wanna share some of the knowledge which I have had by using different phones.I normally do tones of research to buy a phone.
    And here are some performances of phones that I have used.
    I'm on about ON SCREEN TIME which includes YouTube streaming over WiFi and more of web browsing )
    IPhone 5s battery life.(below 4 hours on screen time)
    IPhone 6 battery life (4 to 4:30 hours on screen time).
    IPhone 6 plus DECENT around 5 to 6 hours on screen time)
    Galaxy note 4 DECENT with 6 hours in screen time.
    Huwaei mate 7 decent around 6 hours on screen time.
    At the moment I'm using ZUK international version with almost 7 hours on screen time sometimes 7:30 hours ) best so far.
    If u kn any phone which last longer than that plz let me kn I wud happily get it.
    But screen resolution sud be 1920x1080 minimum with snapdragon 801 minimum, screen size 5'2 inch min,

      On a Motorola forum I've read comments and seen screenshots of Moto X Play S.o.T.,which are damn close to your 7.5h. My own Moto X Play, even with some little tricks (nothing too nerdy) survives two entire days with ~4.5h S.o.T., or only one day with around ~6.5h S.o.T.
      It has a 5.5" screen, 1920x1080 res, but "only" a Snapdragon 615: performance wise, it works like a charm, I have it, so I know what I'm talking about, but I won't assume the same holds when playing (I don't play on my phone).

    I am disappointed by the lack of any Motorola handset in this list. I'm fairly sure that the Moto X Play and DROID Turbo 2/Moto X Force would easily make this list. Makes me wonder what other phones they might have completely missed.

      Me too! I would find it interesting if a company like Motorola took the Droid Turbo original with all of its high end specs, like the camera, sensors, amoled display, and of course the large battery, and changed it to a 1080p amoled display, and dropped a snapdragon 615 or so in it with 2gb RAM. They KINDA did that with the Maxx, but I would like to see them go all out with the specs apart from processor. That phone would probably last forever with battery life, and has the other features with it... something my grandma would be interested in!

    None of this phone have a battery like THL5000. I have one 10 months ago and works like a charm. It really have 5000 MaH of battery and no loose of capacity in all this time.
    With Wifi and 2G reaches 5 days. With 3G I use it about 3-4 days. I don't use it too much but a person who uses it all day can have battery for 2 complete days for sure.
    I know SnapDragon is lower consummer thank mediatek but I won't change my THL5000 for any listed here...
    The only "but" in this device is GPS that works very well but it uses a lot of battery. Maybe using it continuos with Google maps the battery in 4 hours drops to 60%. But I use it in car and always connect it ;)

    The HTC M9 has been slammed in several reviews for it's Shoddy battery life as well as the LG3 below is a quote from one review From Forbes the best & worst of the HTC M9


    "The M9’s battery life is poor. It has regressed from the M8, despite being larger. The M9’s 2840mAh battery is notably bigger than the M8’s 2600mAh power pack, yet there seems to be something rapidly draining power from the M9.

    READ: New Technology Will Triple Smartphone Battery Life

    As I said in my review:

    In one hour of constant use (browsing the web) – on low-brightness – I saw a drop in battery life from 44% to 27%. With medium use, the battery fared slightly better but drained faster than expected, particularly when 4G came into the mix. The best comparison I could make is that it lasts about as long as the LG G3, which had a power-sucking quad-HD display.”

      "Rapid you draining power" that would be the Snapdragon 810 for you. My Droid Turbo 2 BARELY gets me through the day, and it does have a lot of power in the CPU, but it sucks the battery. If I use any games like Real Racing 3, then it goes out fast.

My g3 is the "Stock" 32GB G3. only reason I have to charge again during the day is because I am Constantly in dev or code site playing around with different source codes.. if I was to put it down and leave it alone I have no doubts I have a 3 maybe 4 day battery life..
