Samsung Galaxy S24 Ultra shines in battery life test, narrowly beating iPhone 15 Pro Max and Pixel 8 Pro to reclaim battery crown
In a recent battery life test conducted by YouTuber XEETCHARGE, the Samsung Galaxy S24 Ultra faced off against the Pixel 8 Pro, iPhone 15 Pro Max, and its predecessor, the S23 Ultra. The comprehensive testing included a variety of applications, including popular social media platforms such as YouTube and Facebook, as well as challenging games such as Asphalt 8 and the 3DMark benchmark. The results, depending on your expectations, may or may not surprise you.
Despite having a similarly sized 5,000 mAh battery, the Galaxy S24 Ultra outperformed its predecessor by a large margin in our battery life test, lasting nearly 11 hours compared to the Galaxy S23 Ultra’s 8 hours and 10 minutes. This impressive improvement can be attributed to the advanced chipset and software improvements in the Galaxy S24 Ultra, clearly demonstrating Samsung’s commitment to enhancing efficiency.
The iPhone 15 Pro Max, with its smaller 4,422 mAh battery, managed to last 10 hours and 20 minutes, relinquishing its title as battery champion. It’s worth noting that the iPhone’s battery is approximately 11% smaller than the S24 Ultra’s, yet it only lasted 5% less, which shows the overall efficiency of the iPhone.
Of the three flagship phones, the Pixel 8 Pro took last place, achieving 10 hours of battery life, just behind the iPhone. However, it is necessary to emphasize that all three flagship phones feature impressive improvements in battery life compared to their predecessors. In everyday use, users will be hard-pressed to discern any noticeable difference in actual battery performance.
Although the test didn’t go into detail about other devices’ battery health, screen resolution, or refresh rates – crucial factors that affect battery endurance – XEETCHARGE succeeded in highlighting that all three flagship phones offer respectable battery life. Users can confidently choose any of these devices without compromising battery performance, a critical aspect for many consumers.
