Battery Testing Makes iPhone XS Max One of New Generation Champions

Oh batteries. The bottleneck of the development of contemporary mobile technologies. The reason for our distress away from taking or powerbanks. The most volatile components inside a smartphone or tablet are sometimes too much.

With each generation, manufacturers promise worlds and backgrounds in the area, whether with larger cells or processor and system optimizations that are supposed to make our beloved smartphones survive longer out of the socket. But who is getting along better in this story? To answer that question, we can use the battery-tested videos on YouTube and today we bring two of them with good examples of the new generation of mobile devices including the iPhone XS Max.


The first test, from PhoneBuff, generated a polemic on account of a factor that may have been decisive in its further result on it below. Still, it is worth commenting for the simple reason that he is the first of the famous channel to bring a new methodology to his drum tests: the operations were not performed by human hands, but by a robot, which ensured maximum precision in the time and actions of each task.

The channel test put face to face only the iPhone XS Max (3,174mAh) against the Samsung Galaxy Note9 (4,000mAh) both set to display the same luminance on the screen, sound at a similar level across the speakers and with all apps previously closed. The result? The device South Korean won from washed and retained 37% capacity when the iPhone died, it held out for nearly an additional 3 hours in the test cycle. The tests were repeated 2x, with similar results.

However, it is necessary to cite such a controversy that can put the results under suspicion: as the presenter himself stated on the video, the Galaxy Note9 made the tests with its standard resolution of 2220 × 1080 pixels the device screen actually has 2960 × 1440 pixels and the maximum resolution can be activated in the settings, as a result of the battery lasting a little less.

In that case, the discussion goes: it is valid to test with the device at its default resolution, that most users will never even change, or it would be more honest to change the setting to its maximum resolution that Samsung even likes to advertise on. your marketing material? Both sides have valid arguments, but to cover all scenarios, let's go to the next test.


The channel Mrwhostheboss brought together the two devices previously mentioned to Google Pixel 3 XL (3,430mAh) and at Sony Xperia XZ3 (3,300mAh) in another such test, without the aid of robots, but with Galaxy Note9 operating at its maximum resolution. Again, the same methodology: timed activation and use of different apps and games, with screens and speakers on the same level and no background apps.

In this test, things were different. Sony was the first to die after about 4 hours; Google's device lasted 5:20 and the two Apple and Samsung archrivals remained in the final battle with a iPhone XS Max win by a slight margin he stood by 6:16 in the test, about 12 minutes longer than the Galaxy Note9.

One way or another, it is important to know that next-generation handsets (especially the Apple and Samsung creations, which are inevitably the most popular) are basically matched in terms of battery technology and the like; So whichever way you go, you certainly won't find great sources of dissatisfaction in that area. Right?
