Latest mobile phones battery in 2020
Mobile phones battery is one of the main accessories in Mobile Accessories List. Smartphone are getting larger and larger, with the promise of phones that can go all day on a single charge. But which devices can really brag that they provide the best battery life for phones?
In our battery test survey, the average phone lasts around 10 hours, but the phones we have highlighted here held out for at least 11 hours.
In days, the Moto G7 Power puts almost every other phone to shame when it comes to lasting a long time on a single charge. Motorola’s budget phone set the new standard for phone battery life, lasting 15.5 hours on our battery test, thanks to its massive 5,000 mAh battery.

Impressive as the G7 Power’s battery performance is, Motorola’s handset isn’t the only device to hold out for more than 15 hours on our test. The Asus ZenFone 6 rode its 5,000 mAh battery to sneak past the 15-hour mark, too. Finishing in third is the newest entry to our list, Samsung‘s budget-priced Galaxy A20, which fell 14 minutes short of the 14-hour mark.
The top-performing flagship phone on our battery test is the Huawei P30 Pro, which ran out of juice just shy of the 13-hour mark. (Another Huawei phone, the Mate 10, did even better with a time of 14 hours, 39 minutes. But that phone came out more than a year-and-a-half ago.) Huawei brand phones are hard to come by in the U.S., even before the U.S. government imposed sanctions on the Chinese phone maker, so a more readily available flagship phone is the Galaxy S10 Plus, which lasted more than 12.5 hours; the newly announced Galaxy Note 10 Plus followed with a time of 11:46, besting both the iPhone XR and Galaxy Note 9 by 20 minutes.
We have capped the list of the 15 longest-lasting phones we have tested in the last 18 months. That excludes older phones like the ZenFone 3 Zoom, which topped 16 hours when we tested it in the first half of 2017, and the Cat S41, which also beat the 15-hour mark. We’ve also omitted long-lasting phones like the Oppo Reno 10x Zoom and Vivo Nex S that aren’t available in the U.S. but may still be on sale elsewhere.
When we testing phones, we set each phone’s display to 150 units to normalize for brightness and make sure each handset is receiving at least three bars of service.
