One of the best and most overlooked specs of the LG G2 was its incredible battery life. When the LG G3 was announced with monster specs some people were worried that battery life would suffer. Thankfully, it looks like LG has managed to maintain great battery life in the G3, despite the power-hungry specs.
In PhoneArena’s battery life tests the LG G3 came out on top of other flagship Android devices. The G3 lasted 8 hours and 50 minutes while withstanding a test that is meant to replicate “typical real-life usage.” The Samsung Galaxy S5 lasted 8 hours and 20 minutes in the same test, followed by the Sony Xperia Z2 at 8 hours 10 minutes, and the HTC One M8 at 7 hours 12 minutes. How has LG managed to get such good battery life out of this beast?
In testing the G3 the publication mentions that the optimizations LG claimed to make during the announcement event are working as described. If battery life is your #1 concern it looks like the G3 has won this round of flagship devices. Samsung and HTC have also scored “Excellent” in the tests, but if you’re looking for a little extra boost the LG G3 is your phone.
