Samsung Galaxy S5 battery life tests reveal impressive endurance

As the hardware on smartphones gets faster and more powerful, the importance of good battery life continues to increase hand in hand. The Galaxy S5 sports top-of-the-line specs that matches the competition’s, but the fact that it has only a 2,800 mAh battery – not a considerable upgrade over the 2,600 mAh battery on the Galaxy S4 – has had some folks worried that its battery life won’t be as impressive as its hardware. However, tests carried out by two different sources reveal that despite the not-so-huge battery capacity, the Galaxy S5 can offer excellent usage times that beat the competition in more than one use case.

The Galaxy S5 bested other smartphones, with many of them having bigger batteries, in quite a few tests. For example, in web browsing, the Galaxy S5 managed to last from 7 to 10 hours of screen time, depending on the brightness of the display. Gaming and talk time tests also saw the latest Samsung flagship do incredibly well, with only tablets and phablets with considerably bigger batteries managing to score higher points in endurance.

In the end, it doesn’t look like battery life is going to be a problem on the Galaxy S5, especially when you consider the fact that it comes with the Ultra Power Saving Mode feature, which can offer up to 24 hours of battery life on just 10 percent of battery by turning off most features of the device.
