Samsung Galaxy S III battery tested, lasts 10 hours for video voice


Consistent with trying out from GSMArena, the Samsung Galaxy S III can provide significantly better battery lifestyles than we expected. Regardless of the usage of an important 2100 mAh battery, the big four.eight” Tremendous AMOLED show and quad-core processor for sure have the possible to make use of plenty of energy, so I’d have anticipated simplest mediocre outcomes. Anyway, let’s have a more in-depth have a look at what the wonderful people at GSMArena have found out.


In the 3G talk test, where a 3G call is kept on and the screen is kept off, the Galaxy S III lasted for 10 hours and 20 minutes. That compares favourably to a number of other power efficient phones including the HTC One S (9:42) and the Nokia Lumia 710 (9:05). It was only bested by the Galaxy Note (12:14) and Droid Razr Maxx (20:24).

The next test was for web browsing – not normally a strong point for AMOLED screens, given the large amount of white backgrounds on the web. Here, it got 5 hours and 17 minutes, pretty much middle of the pack. The Razr Maxx again took home the prize at 7:23, while the iPhone 4S also got a good 6:56. The previous Galaxy, the S2, only got 4:24 here.

The video playback test came next, and it was here that I was quite astonished. The Galaxy S III comes second in the tests at a whopping 10 hours and 1 minute, a bit higher than the One S at 9:28 and much better than the 8 hours of the Galaxy S II. It’s also better than the iPhone 4S, which clocked 9 hours and 24 minutes.

All in all, it’s near tablet level results – it just goes to show that the 2100 mAh Galaxy S III battery and efficient 32 nm processor architecture is more than enough to offset the 4.8” Super AMOLED display and powerful internals – you won’t need to reach for that Samsung Galaxy S III charger for a while!
