It is important for an outdoor person to have a Smartphone with a long lasting battery (Lenovo P2). Not to be able to go home to charge the battery is the major reason why outdoor people purchase an Android handset with a sufficient energy capacity and a power bank.
In this mobile guide, we will share a test result of phone’s battery life performance, especially for a video playback. If you like to use the video feature or your work requires you to use one, feel free to read this article.
Running the test
There are many ways to test the battery endurance of a phone, but we will only cover the video playback method. For those who are not familiar with that, video playback method is a way to measure the battery capacity of an Android handset by playing a video in a loop until the battery failed.
Of course, this method is not efficient to test out whether or not a mobile phone has a long lasting battery capacity. However, if you are a couch potato or working with a video feature, running this test can help you to determine which device has the best battery endurance.
Note: The right way to see how long a phone battery can last is from the manufacturer description in the box. The information comes from the producer of the Smartphone and therefore, can be trusted.
Test result (Lenovo P2)
Based on the result, Lenovo P2 shows a good performance of battery endurance for video playback with around 5 hours difference with the second rank. The Lenovo P2 Smartphone can stay alive for 28 hours 50 minutes battery life.
With 5 hours gap, Motorola’s Moto Z Play gets the second place. It can endure until 23 hours 45 minutes. That is really an impressive battery performance considering the fact that both are just mid-end Android handsets.
Note: Remember that the result is limited only for video playback. It does not determine if those two devices are a match to Samsung Galaxy S8 or iPhone 7s. See below for the full list of best phone battery for video playback in 2017.
