LG Electronics’ recently-introduced flagship Android handset, the G3, nabbed the top spot in battery life rankings, beating every top Android handset released this year, including the Galaxy S5.
US-based IT news site Phone Arena announced on June 9 (local time) that the G3 outperformed the Galaxy S5, the Xperia Z 2, the HTC One (M8), and the iPhone 5s in its battery life test.
LG’s new Android device scored 8 hours and 50 minutes in the test, followed by Samsung’s handset with 8 hours and 20 minutes, Sony’s Xperia Z 2 at 8 hours and 10 minutes, HTC’s One (M8) at 7 hours and 12 minutes, and the iPhone 5s (5 hours and 2 minutes).
Even in the charging time test, the G3 upstaged this year’s top handsets, scoring 120 minutes, and the Galaxy S5 (122 minutes) followed. It took 207 minutes for the One (M8) to be fully charged, while the Xperia Z2 needed 212 minutes to reach a full charge.
Phone Arena said, “Despite the numerous arguments (and concerns) that the G3’s super pixel-dense 1440 x 2560 (QHD) resolution display caused, it would seem that LG was quite serious when it said that the optimizations it has implemented in both the screen and battery would ensure an industry-leading endurance.”
