When buying a smartphone there are many factors to consider. Some users prioritize performance, others are more focused on the design and there are those who only focus on the user experience above anything else. We today echo a news from Phone Arena in which they analyze the high-end smartphone with greater autonomy . And it is difficult to find a perfect device that meets all the requirements, but without a doubt, one of the most important points to consider, according to our point of view is the autonomy .
And it is that a smartphone that forces us to live next to the charger can ruin the rest of its advantages, and that is why today we are going to satisfy the curiosity of those intensive users who need a smartphone capable of following their rhythm of life.
As is logical, it is difficult to have all the flagship of 2017 and 2018, but we do have some very representative models of the high range in the current Android landscape. We are going to focus on 3 models that have sold very well and that are the Xiaomi Mi MIX 2S , he Samsung Galaxy S9 Plus and the LG V30 , 3 terminals of generous dimensions and with very powerful features in all sections.
The people at Phone Arena have focused on the Xiaomi Mi MIX 2S, a smartphone that as you know is Xiaomi’s commitment to design with a 2: 1 screen 6 inches that houses the sensors and the camera on its bottom edge and that integrates a Snapdragon 845 processor.
Well, although the Xiaomi Mi MIX 2S offers a good autonomy of 7 hours and 57 minutes (We do not know the test test used, but we assume it will be intensive), it is not by far the winner of the competition, because the truth is that within Android is the LG V30 the winner of the competition, followed by the Sony Xperia ZX2 and the Google Pixel 2 XL.
If you look at a best seller like the Galaxy S9 Plus , we see that this is capable of exceed 8 hours of autonomy, which taking into account that it makes use of a more powerful processor than the LG V30, it is still quite good.
And is that the Snapdragon 845 seems to be a pretty “gulp” SoC and the proof of that is that the Xiaomi Mi MIX 2 original , with Snapdragon 835, get better in more than an hour the autonomy of the 2S version, so if you want a Xiaomi with a great balance between power and autonomy, you should bet on this device despite its lower power.
If we take into account that both the Google Pixel 2 XL and the LG V30 use an SD 835, we see that there are only two smartphones with Snapdragon 845 capable of exceeding 8 hours of use, and those are the Galaxy S9 Plus and the Sony Xperia ZX2.
If you want power, now it’s up to you to decide which of the two is more to your liking, although in our opinion the Galaxy S9 Plus is the high-end smartphone with more autonomy to consider, since it is somewhat more complete despite of having 50 minutes less autonomy, and that without taking into account that the Xperia stays in the 5.7 inches .
In a separate kingdom is the iPhone 8 Plus , that thanks to a screen of 5.5 inches and an Apple A11 Bionic very well optimized, exceeds 10 hours of autonomy, but of course, we talk about a smartphone very different from the previous ones, which go around all 6 inches.
