Smartphones with the Longest Battery Life

Smartphones with the Longest Battery Life
By

Big screens, superfast processors and powerful apps mean smartphone battery life has never been more important. After all, what good is that advanced camera if your handset is dead before your kid's game gets started? And who wants their phone to die while rocking out to Spotify?

Of the 38 smartphones we've reviewed in the last year, these devices listed below lasted at least 8.5 hours on the Tom's Guide Battery Test, which involves continuous Web surfing over 4G LTE. We set each phone's display to 100 nits to normalize for brightness and make sure each handset is receiving at least three bars of service. See for yourself which smartphones keep going and going.

    Writing this on a Passport that's at 37% and on its 14th hour. Not on list. Interesting.

    Passport here as well easily 14+ hours. There are series of days that I don't even charge my blackberry. I suspect that since BlackBerry Limited does not have the cash to pay for this kind of marketing, they do not get on the list.

    Oh and the amazon pricing values are wrong. The galaxy 6 egde that they link to is the 128gb version that costs ~$1k. Whereas the advertising lists 299. The low end version on amazon still costs 500+ assuming you get the proper version for your region.
