Back in September 2013, I reported how the BlackBerry Z30 trumped the former battery champ, Samsung Galaxy Note II, to take the enviable spot. Well, we have a new champion, and by miles. The Nokia Lumia 1520’s battery life is truly amazing.
Here is how the three devices compare:
Samsung Galaxy Note II: 12 hours
BlackBerry Z30: 15 hours
Nokia Lumia 1520: 23 hours
As at the time I took the above screenshot, the 1520 was still running, so it will do better than 23 hours in the long run. In one fell swoop, the 1520 takes over from the 720 as the Windows Phone battery champ, and if GSMArena’s battery tests are anything to go by, is the combined phablet and smartphone battery life champ.
