The Infinix Note 3 has broken the two-year reign of the Lumia 1520 as Mobility Arena’s battery life champ. But before we delve into how it pulled off the feat, a little history of Mobility Arena’s previous battery life champs doesn’t hurt.
In 2013, the the BlackBerry Z30 took over from the Samsung Galaxy Note II as Mobility Arena’s battery life champ. It held that crown for a year.
Then in 2014, the Nokia Lumia 1520 took the baton. From that time, none of the devices reviewed on this site have so much as threatened the Lumia 1520’s grip on the title.
Well, this is 2016, and we have a new battery life champ. Running for 30 and half hours of regular use – from 8 am one day till 2.30 pm the following day – the Infinix Note 3 easily left the former battery life champ in the dust. All through the course of the day, it ran a 3G connection and was used for email, instant messaging, calls, SMS, and social networking services. Here is a screenshot from its battery stats page:
Here’s how the Note 3 compares with its predecessors:
- Samsung Galaxy Note II: 12 hours
- BlackBerry Z30: 15 hours
- Nokia Lumia 1520: 26 hours
- Infinix Note 3: 30.5 hours
