Apple’s iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus have won the battery life test against their rivals, such as the Samsung Galaxy S5. In concordance with some tests made by Anandtech, the iPhone 6 has a longer battery life than Samsung’s Galaxy S5, even if it Apple’s phone comes with a smaller battery. During the test, the iPhone 6, iPhone 6 Plus and Galaxy S5 were web browsing using a Wi-Fi connection and here were the results:
– Apple’s iPhone 6 Plus lasted 13.7 hours
– Apple’s iPhone 6 lasted 11.5 hours
– Samsung’s Galaxy S5 lasted 10.2 hours
However, iPhone 6 Plus was defeated by Huawei Ascent Mate with over 18 hours of Wi-Fi web browsing. The third place was occupied by HTC One (E8), followed by Motorola Moto G and iPhone 6. The ninth place was occupied by iPhone 5, followed by Galaxy S5.
Anandtech standardizes the phones brightness to 200 nits to make sure that they get an accurate result. The iPhone 6’s battery life was quite impressive, since the device has only an 1810 mAh battery compared with Galaxy S5 which has a bigger battery of 2800 mAh, while iPhone 6 Plus comes with a 2915 mAh battery.
With other words, the iPhone 6 Plus and iPhone 6 battery life exceeds what Apple’s claimed, since they said the batteries of these devices on Wi-Fi will last up to 11 hours for iPhone 6 and 12 hours for the iPhone 6 Plus.
Even if Apple’s devices come with lower batteries, the company seems to do a great job on making them last more than other phones that come with bigger batteries. Even the iPhone 5’s battery which is only 1440 mAh could beat Samsung’s Galaxy S5. The new A8 chip that powers both iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus is said that is 50% more efficient than the “old” A7 that the iPhone 5S has. At the same time, iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus beat their rivals in browser benchmark tests. Even if the A8 chip seems to bring solid lead to the iPhone 6 phones, there is a significant impact when it comes to GPU performance on the iPhone 6 Plus, because of the higher resolution of 2208×1242 on its display.
