Top 5 Phones with Best Battery Life in 2017

0

Smartphones are amazing – you can use them to play games, watch shows and keep in touch with your friends. Modern smartphones also come in many shapes and sizes, making it hard to know which one to buy.

However, one important part you always need to consider when buying a phone is the battery life. You don’t want to end up with a phone that requires charging every few hours.

For those looking for a phone with a healthy battery life, here are the top five phones with the best battery life in 2017.

1.     Lenovo P2

Lenovo’s P2 is a clear market leader when it comes to battery life. The phone runs an impressive 28.5 hours when a continuous video is plaid on it. This is quite a long time considering how some of the worst performers will have their battery empty after just seven hours. The phone is also quite a bargain, although its camera is not anything to boast about. However, the design is solid considering it’s a budget phone – it uses a real metallic structure adding to the design and making it feel sturdier.

2. Motorola Moto 2 Play

Motorola Moto 2 Play follows as a close second with 23.45 hours of battery life.  The model is rather affordable since it isn’t the newest phone on the list. It also comes with a well-sized screen that is able to play videos on a good quality. If you’d want to criticise the phone, you might do so in its design – it’s not the sleekest phone on the market.

3. Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge

The battery life drops under 20 hours in performance after the two above phones. The third smartphone on the list can keep up for little over 18 hours. If you are looking for something top-notch, the Galaxy S7 Edge is the phone for you. It’s not the cheapest smartphone but it has an impressive range of other qualities aside from the good battery life. The camera is superb in the phone, making it a great phone for people who love to snap photos. You will also fall in love with the design of the phone – it’s slim and clever in how you hold the phone.

4. Samsung Galaxy J5

Samsung’s Galaxy J5 is another well-performing smartphone in terms of battery life. The phone can play a video for just an hour less than the Galaxy S7 Edge model. It’s another budget-friendly model and one of the newest on the list. You shouldn’t let the price fool you – the phone packs a punch. The display offers a pleasant viewing experience and the quality of the camera is not too bad for such a budget phone.However, the phone is definitely not the best looking or feeling in terms of the design. The plastic framework does feel a bit flimsy, although it is rather comfortable phone to hold.

5. OnePlus 3

Finally, OnePlus 3 will continue playing the video for 16.5 hours. The phone is definitely worth considering, not least because it has a great camera. You can also enjoy a sleek design and there are a few different colour options to choose from. It also comes with plenty of storage space and the battery charges up quite fast. If there’s one thing that can cause problems, it is that the battery life can be a little unpredictable. Although it generally tends to last long, you might occasionally find it running out of steam sooner than you thought.

If you are interested in buying an iPhone, your best option is still the iPhone SE. The iOS device can keep a video playing well over 16 hours, beating iPhone 7 by several hours. Indeed, even the iPhone 5 SE is better than the latest iPhone in terms of the battery life.

When it comes to finding the above phones with affordable prices, you need to look around before you make the purchasing decisions. Always compare prices with different retailers and think carefully if you want to buy the phone with or without a contract. Furthermore, you should check out OZCodes for special discount offers with different retailers like Lycamobile and Just Mobile. With the help of the coupon code, you can enjoy a new phone without paying more.

Aside from buying a phone with a healthy battery life, you can also influence how quickly the battery drains with your own actions. You need to be careful with which apps you are running, what browser you use as well as some little tricks you can do in the phone settings.

So, if you want a phone that can keep up with your use, consider the above five phones. They are currently the best phones in terms of battery life, ensuring you get to have fun without continuous recharging.
