While we try to factor in all of the features that make up a good phone to rank the best Android phones for most people, not everyone has the same priorities. For those of you that really tax your phone and can’t take the risk of it dying before your day is up, we’ve assembled a list of the Android Phones with the Best Battery Life.

Now to be clear while we are sorting these phones by battery capacity, we aren’t including any duds in this list that just happen to have a giant battery stuffed into them, these phones are all going to give you a solid overall experience as well as multi-day battery life.

1. Asus Zenfone 6

Asus has managed to keep the Zenfone line consistently at top of mind when it comes to battery life and while the Zenfone 6 has some other fun features the battery remains a top priority. The most distinctive feature is, of course, the flip-up selfie camera, but with a Snapdragon 855, 8GB of RAM and 256GB of internal storage this phone isn’t coming up short with any of its specs. You can read our full review for the rest of our impressions of the device, but perhaps the best part is that you can pick it up for less than $600.

Battery: 5000 mAh

Key Features:

  • Ridiculously large battery
  • Best selfie-camera on the market
  • Extremely minimal bezel

Buy Asus Zenfone 6

2. Moto G7 Power

Motorola wasn’t going to let there be any confusion about what they were going for on this one, the Moto G7 Power pretty well announces that it is a battery beast. It matches the ASUS Zenfone 6 with a 5000 mAh, but the rest of the specs are what slot it in behind our top option. But before you dismiss it, consider that it can typically be found for under $200, making it absolutely unbeatable on a price per mAh basis. And it’s not a total slouch, you can read our Moto G7 Power review for a more complete look, but considering the budget pricing of the phone, we came away reasonably impressed.

Battery: 5000 mAh

Key Features:

  • Stock Android 9.0 Pie
  • Unbeatable battery life
  • Solid construction

3. LG V60 ThinQ 5G

Starting at just $799 the LG V60 is the least expensive Snapdragon 865 device that we’ve seen so far and while some will see the dual-screen accessory as a gimmick, others will appreciate having some of the cool factor of a folding phone without the durability issues.

The 5,000 mAh battery is a huge plus for the LG V60 ThinQ, making this easily a two-day phone when you opt to go without the secondary screen. And of course, the audio experience is unsurpassed with a 3.5mm headphone jack, four microphones for audio capture and noise-cancellation, and the 32-bit Hi-Fi Quad DAC.

Battery: 5000 mAh

Key Features:

  • Affordably priced
  • Unmatched audio
  • Unique folding 2nd screen

4. Samsung Galaxy S20 Ultra

When you slap “Ultra” on the name of your phone you certainly better bring it on the specs and you can’t argue that Samsung did that with the Galaxy S20 Ultra. From the 6.9-inch display to the 108MP main camera and potentially 16GB of RAM there is nothing subtle about this device and the 5,000 mAh battery is here to keep it all running. Now if you let the screen run at its full 120Hz and have a lot of screen on time you might be able to burn through the battery in a day, but take it easy on either count and you can make it well into a second day without a problem.

Battery: 5000 mAh

Key Features:

  • Blistering performance
  • Virtually tablet sized display
  • Full 5G support

5. Galaxy Note 10+


Samsung upped the ante on the screen size in the Galaxy Note 10+, going from 6.4-inches in the Note 9 all the way up to 6.8-inches. Naturally, the battery had to follow suit with a jump from 4000 to 4300 mAh. Now we will need some time to evaluate how the real-world battery life shakes out, but even given the screen size and power (12GB of RAM) of this device you should have your work cut out for you killing it in just a day. You also can use all that battery power to top up your Qi-compatible accessories like the Samsung Galaxy Buds using reverse wireless charging.

Battery: 4300 mAh

Key Features:

  • Fast performance
  • Enormous screen
  • Reverse Wireless Charging

Buy Samsung Galaxy Note 10+

6. Oppo Find X2 Pro

Oppo makes its first appearance on this list for us with the powerhouse Oppo Find X2 Pro. As we so often say with Samsung this phone took the kitchen sink approach and just threw everything in, which includes a 4,260 mAh battery. Now thanks to the 6.8-inch screen with 120Hz refresh rate this is probably necessary, but the battery will make it easily into a second day for most users. Notably, the SuperVOOC charging makes short work of charging this battery up anyway with a full charge taking just 45 minutes.

Battery: 4260 mAh

Key Features:

  • Fantastic cameras
  • Unbelievable fast charging
  • Beautiful screen

7. Huawei P30 Pro

The Huawei P30 Pro is primarily known for its awesome camera, but it also houses one of the largest batteries on the market at 4200 mAh. Meaning that nothing is going to stop your all-day photo sessions which can, of course, go well into the night with the otherworldly low-light camera performance on the P30 Pro. Check out our full review for the rest of our impressions on the P30 Pro, but we found we could easily make it through two days of light to medium usage.

Battery: 4200 mAh

Key Features:

  • Fantastic Camera
  • Large HDR screen
  • Fast Performance

Buy Huawei P30 Pro

8. Huawei Mate 20 Pro

Huawei is the second manufacturer to chalk up two devices on the best battery list thanks to the matching 4200 mAh battery in the Huawei Mate 20 Pro. If you liked the sound of the Huawei P30 Pro, but aren’t as worried about having an absolute top-end camera then the Mate 20 Pro could be the solution for you. And to be clear the camera in the Mate 20 Pro is excellent, check out our full review for a look at some samples, the P30 Pro is just that good. What you are getting in exchange for that is a starting price that is currently a little over $200 less than the P30 Pro.

Battery: 4200 mAh

Key Features:

  • Build quality
  • Speedy Performance
  • Strong Camera

9. Samsung Galaxy S10+

Samsung sneaks in its third option on our list with the Galaxy S10+, which features a 4000 mAh battery to go with the rest of its high end specs. I’m going to guess most of you are already pretty familiar with the Galaxy S10+ and you can read our review for the full breakdown on the device, but overall we were impressed with what Samsung delivered with the Galaxy S10+ last year with a fantastic array of features and for those that value the headphone jack perhaps one of the last flagships to carry it.

Battery: 4000 mAh

Key Features:

  • Dual-selfie cameras
  • Sleek Design
  • Reverse Wireless Charging

Buy Samsung Galaxy S10+

10. OnePlus 7 Pro

OnePlus took some heat last year for going full flagship pricing with the OnePlus 7 Pro, but the reality is that the company still delivered a smartphone that ticked just about every spec box at an impressive value. Needless to say they didn’t skimp on the battery, not that you could with a 6.7-inch screen, a Snapdragon 855 and up to 12GB of RAM. And while those specs sound a lot like a phone that should cost you at least $1,000, the OnePlus 7 Pro can be had for under $650. Read our full review for all of the details, but rest assured the battery will not disappoint and the included Warp charger means even when you do need to top up it won’t take long.

Battery: 4000 mAh

Key Features:

  • 90Hz QHD+ display
  • No notch or cutout
  • Triple camera array

Buy OnePlus 7 Pro

11. Samsung Galaxy A20

Samsung notches its fifth device on the list and its one of the most affordable options as well at right around $180. The Samsung Galaxy A20 isn’t going to blow you away with most of its specs, but the 4,000 mAh battery paired with the 6.4-inch HD+ Super AMOLED, 3GB RAM and the lower-powered Exynos 7884 means this thing will outlast a lot of devices with much larger batteries. The Galaxy A20 does offer dual-rear cameras, a small centered teardrop notch, fingerprint reader and microSD expansion to boost the 32GB internal storage by up to 512GB.

Battery: 4000 mAh

Key Features:

  • Teardrop notch
  • Super AMOLED Infinity-V Display
  • MicroSD expansion
