If you’re shopping for a smartphone, there is a small handful of things your typical shopper looks for: camera quality, storage space, and – perhaps most importantly – battery life.
In such a saturated market, even just an hour less battery life than a competitor can see consumers turned off for good.

So if you’re looking for a smartphone that will really last you, these are the ones consumer advocacy group Choice voted as the ones with the best battery life.
The Android winner: Samsung Galaxy Note 10+
Battery score: 91%
Durability score: 83%
GPS score: 86%
It not only rated highest on battery life, but also proved itself to be highly resistant to breakage and had a great GPS capability. Other features include a dual SIM capability, and you can enjoy videos with ease as it supports full HD and 4K video.
Android runner-up: LG G8 ThinQ
Battery score: 90%
Durability score: 70%
GPS score: 82%
A more affordable option than the Samsung, the LG G8 ThinQ is particularly handy when you’re completely out of reception: its FM radio works even when there’s no reception. The experts found nothing bad to say about this phone.
The Apple winner: Apple iPhone 11 Pro Max
Battery score: 85%
Durability score: 80%
GPS score: 85%
This baby has more battery life than all the iPhone models that have come before it, and the phone has been rated as having excellent display and performance. However, the price tag on this iPhone is nothing to sneeze at, at more than $2,000.
