Category: HighOnAndroid SOT Test
In our latest HighOnAndroid SOT Test, we take up Google’s latest Pixel XL and Pixel versus last year’s Nexus 6P and also the Galaxy S7 Edge.
The results are very interesting as the Pixel XL and Pixel prove themselves as one of the best in having longest battery, just behind the Galaxy S7 Edge and Galaxy S7, current kings of HighOnAndroid SOT tests.
Here’s an SOT (Screen-on-time) battery test between the Galaxy S7 Edge Qualcomm 820 U.S. model vs. S7 Edge Exynos 8890 international model vs. Huawei Mate 8 w/ Kirin 950.
1st Place: S7 Edge Exynos = 11 hours 34 minutes 2nd Place: S7 Edge Qualcomm 8 hours 48 minutes 3rd Place: Huawei Mate 8 = 6 hours 50 minutes
In this battery test, we test out the Samsung Galaxy S7 vs. Galaxy S7 Edge vs. Galaxy S6 using our standard HighOnAndroid SOT Test.
Since the battery capacity has been upgraded from Galaxy S6’s 2550mAh to Galaxy S7’s 3000mAh, I expected the Galaxy S7 to fair much better in this test but the question was, “how much more?”
In this HighOnAndroid SOT test, we pit the LG G3 against G Flex 2 and the Galaxy Note Edge.
The LG G3 and Note Edge both have 1440P screens while the G Flex 2 has a 1080P screen. Also, the Note Edge sports a Qualcomm Snapdragon 805 processor while the LG G3 sports Snapdragon 801 and the G Flex 2 the Snapdragon 805 processor.
So, you want to know which phablet has the best screen-on-time out of the Galaxy Note 4, Nexus 6, and OnePlus One?
Well, we did a quick test using our HighOnAndroid SOT Battery Test and the results are in.
In this HighOnAndroid SOT Test, we test all the 2015 and 2014 flagship Samsung smartphones, the Galaxy S6 vs Galaxy S5 vs Galaxy Note 4 vs Galaxy Note 3.
In this test, all of these phones are running the latest TouchWiz Android Lollipop stock firmwares.
The display is the most power-hungry hardware on your Android smartphone. Most smartphones battery life efficiency can be determined by measuring the SOT(screen-on-time). But is it possible to do this in a controlled environment?
If you wanted to get SOT (Screen-on-time) results accurately, you cannot do it unless you do it in an isolated environment testing the actual screen-on-time as people use their phones differently.
