iPhone 5 vs Samsung Galaxy Note 2 – Battery comparisons

On Thursday I left rural Dartmoor, and travelled to London. It was the first time I was away from my mains power or car charger.

One thing shocked me about the iPhone 5 was its poor battery life that day. It went flat at 8pm coming off charge at 6.30am and spending over 6 hours on airplane mode to save battery. I did some investigation and realised the jail break was impacting the battery, but I also looked at the official specs and compared it to the Samsung Galaxy Note 2 and S3.

The iPhone 5 states it can browse the Internet for 8 hours on 3G and 10 hours on wifi. Since I used wifi most of the time, that might explain why I felt the loss of battery. It has a standby time of only 225 hours. The Samsung S3 is similar but has a standby time 3 times that of the iPhone 5. That seems odd.

But we all know the Note 2 is famed for its size and battery life. And here’s why. The Note 2 can browse the Internet over 3G for 16 hours and has a standby time of nearly 950 hours.

This clearly shows all phones of smartphone capabilities need to have the Note 2 stamina.
