Xperia XZ2 Has a Major-Selling Point Over the Other Flagships – Better Battery Life Than iPhone X


High battery life is an attractive-selling point for high-end phones. Conducting a series of tests, it has been revealed that the Xperia XZ2 and Xperia XZ2 Compact are phones that exhibit the best battery life right now.

Xperia XZ2 Series Races Past the Galaxy S9 and iPhone X in the Latest Test Results

According to a recent study conducted by Strategy Analytics, Sony’s Xperia XZ2 and Xperia XZ2 Compact take the cake when it comes to remaining powered on for the longest time. Amongst all the latest Android flagships, these two have the best battery life.

Strategy Analytics details that the Xperia XZ2 will last for 36 hours with average use and the Xperia XZ2 Compact will last for around 34 hours and 20 minutes. In the same study, it was discovered that in similar circumstances, Huawei P10, LG G6, and Apple’s iPhone X last for around 32 hours. However, the Samsung Galaxy S9 could survive for only around 27 hours on a single charge. Amongst the phones tested, the OPPO R11 had the weakest battery life, lasting for only around 16 hours and 30 minutes on a single charge.

The test refers to a ‘typical user scenario’ which means actively using the smartphone, including battery-draining apps, for around 16 hours in a single day. The brightness of all the devices was set to 150 nits and the sound volume was maximized. All the models were used under their manufacturer recommended default system settings, with the test running twice.

So, the methodology used was uniform and accurately represents the battery life users can expect on the tested Android flagships. The tests were conducted earlier this month so newer phones like Huawei P20 Pro, LG V30, and LG V30 ThinQ could not be included in the mix.

Initially, Sony wanted these tests to be done but apparently, Strategy Analytics financed the tests itself. Xperia XZ2 and Xperia XZ2 Compact are available for pre-order in the U.S., so if high battery life is your thing, look no further than these two handsets.
