Samsung Galaxy S 4 goes through extensive battery testing, shows it can stay on for possibly 3 days



Samsung’s Galaxy S 4 has rightfully arrived with much praise and enthusiasm thanks to its awesome internals and custom software, but how will the phone and its awesome features hold up in real-world use? Well friends, it appears the Galaxy S 4’s 2,600mAh battery certainly packs a bigger punch than one could have ever imagined. Thanks to our friends at GSMArena, extensive testing indicate the Galaxy S 4 excels in three testing categories that make up the average smartphone user’s daily activities:

  • Talk time – 13 hours, 53 min
  • Web browsing – 8 hours, 42 min
  • Video playback – 10 hours, 16 min

While those results clearly place the smartphone in direct competition with other premium smartphones out there— the Galaxy S 4 essentially trumps everything out there on the “endurance ratings“, which are combined measurements showing how long a device could potentially last in real life. Hypothetically speaking, if a Galaxy S 4 owner did one hour of calling, web browsing and video watching every day— the smartphone would last for an astounding 63 hours— 3 days! Pretty impressive, right?

    Clearly this is why not counting the upcoming Galaxy Note 3 that Samsung will sell over 250 million smartphones in 2013. This will perpel them way over 50% of market share in 2013. Take that metal device from Htc and stick it where the sun don’t shine. It won’t sell anyway.

      Too bad Samsung didn’t even sell 213 million phones as you’ve repeatedly claimed. It SHIPPED that many.
