Sony Xperia Z3 tops battery life charts for its class

The Sony Xperia Z3 has one of the longest battery life spans of smartphones in its class, according to new tests.

Sony’s latest flagship lasted for nearly nine and a half hours of screen-on time when put through PhoneArena’s tests. The test consists of running a custom web-script, which is designed to replicate the power consumption of typical day-to-day use. The Xperia Z3 comes in ahead of any other smartphone with Huawei’s Ascend Mate 7 the nearest competitor. Its phone lasted for just over nine hours in this test.

To put this in perspective, the Samsung Galaxy S5 managed to last seven and a half hours, while the Apple iPhone 6 Plus lasted approximately six and a half hours. The iPhone 6, with its smaller battery, lasted for just under five and a half hours.

What is surprising is that Sony manages to eek so much life out of a smaller battery, compared to the Xperia Z2, the Mate 7, and other high-end smartphones. The tested charging time was somewhat longer than competing devices. It takes approximately four hours with the stock 850 mA charger.
