After all, charging your phone every night is not much fun, and for those times when a workday flows into a night outing, you need your phone to be with you and last, and last. Not every phone is capable of this, though, and that's why we are measuring battery life on every major flagship that arrives in our office to better figure out how they do in comparative terms. Now, with all important phones for 2016 already out, it's time to sum it all up and see which phone has the best battery life. Insidermonkey experts made a list of 7 smartphones with the best battery life heading into 2017.
First, though, let's say a few words about our testing method: we put all devices on equal grounds by settings the display at 200 nits, a brightness level comfortable for indoor use. Then, we put all phones through a rigorous browser testing that simulates typical smartphone use. With no stand-by time for rest, we get scores that reflect screen-on use. Let's see how this year's best phones do in this test. You can also check our list of 7 smartphones with the best audio quality.
