Deciding on which smartphone to buy is no easy task. We all need a phone with top-notch performance and a capable camera for digital lifestyles.

For this and several other reasons, the smartphone’s battery life is an increasingly important factor.

No matter how good a new smartphone is, it requires further recharge of its battery.

It is best to critically examine the battery size, measured in mAh, to confirm real duration or life-span indication of the smartphone.

Other factors such as display size and resolution and power efficiency still play an important part, too. However, life-span of smartphones’ battery need less guesswork.

In no particular order, some of the smartphones with top battery lives of the first quarter of 2019 are assessed below.
