The Wrong iPhone Has Solved Apple’s Battery Problems

Apple’s latest iPhone has come out ahead of the leading competition in regards battery life and endurance. But it is unfortunate that the iPhone that offers the best battery life out of the current portfolio isn’t the flagship iPhone X. Instead the winner is the pinnacle of the previous generation, the handset with the smaller battery and larger screen. Step forward and pick up your trophy, iPhone 8 Plus.

PhoneArena has been testing a number of flagship handsets in the battery life stakes. Under its conditions, the iPhone 8 Plus clocks in at 10 hours 36 minutes, the iPhone X at 8 hours 41 minutes, the iPhone 7 at 8 hours 37 minutes. Curiously all three models beat the latest South Korean flagships, with the Samsung Galaxy S9 Plus managing 8 hours 22 minutes, and the Galaxy S9 just 7 hours 23 minutes.

Anandtech’s battery testing applies different criteria. The Galaxy S9 Plus, at 10.48 hours, overhauls the iPhone X (9.76 hours) and the iPhone 8 (10.41 hours), but once more the iPhone 8 Plus wins out with 11.83 hours.

Given the iPhone X battery (2716 mAh) is larger than both the iPhone 8 (1821 mAh) and the 8 Plus (2675 mAh),  it is a shame that the X has fallen short. Under one test it is matching the smaller iPhone 8, on another the iPhone 8 has an advantage over the similarly sized iOS smartphone.

But it’s also clear that Apple, when it gets everything right, can squeeze more life and power out of a smaller battery cell than its Android counterparts. It’s just a shame that the flagship handset with the new technology, energy efficient screen, and convenient wireless charging has fallen short of Apple’s benchmark.
