With some manufacturers starting to pick up on the fact that consumers actually care about how long a phone’s battery lasts, Samsung is promising plenty of longevity out of the Galaxy S III’s 2100mAh of juice. GSMArena has managed to get their hands on a pre-release version of the phone and decided to test out Sammy’s claims. They put the GS3 through a gauntlet of battery challenges and concluded that the phone’s battery lasts a full 10 hours of voice and video use.
The number rivals that of the iPad and Transformer Prime, but things aren’t all peaches and cream. For extended webbrowsing sessions the latest Galaxy S clocked in at only five hours, which doesn’t quite compare to the battery life of Motorola’s RAZR Maxx (but what does, really?) or the iPhone 4S. Actual battery life will likely vary, as few will enter into such marathon sessions of use. From the sound of things, it isn’t too unrealistic to expect over a full day’s use on a single charge.
