With their quad-core processors and 4G data speeds, smart phones have never been more powerful–or more power hungry. Yes, specs and apps matter, but what good are they if you’re hunting for an outlet by lunchtime or trying to outlast a blackout? If you want a smartphone that endures, check out the handsets that made our list. These devices lasted at least 6.5 hours on the LAPTOP Battery Test, which involves continuous web surfing over 4G at 40 percent brightness.
See for yourself which smartphones truly go the distance.
It's clear that LG built its latest flagship phone to last. If its blazing fast Snapdragon 800 processor wasn't enough, the G2's 3,000 mAh battery lasted a record-setting 13 hours and 44 minutes on the LAPTOP Battery Test. The AT&T version lasted 10 hours and 42 minutes, while the Verizon model lasted 9:14. All of these runtimes are great. While the back-mounted power and volume keys aren't for everyone, overall the G2 is a formidable Android phone that's built to go the distance.
