Galaxy S III Battery Test Results Make The Phone Look Very Good

The boys at GSMArena, whom we are slightly envious of now just finished their first go at testing battery life on the Galaxy S III. With a huge 2100mAh battery, there has been plenty of question how that will hold up powering a 4.8″ Super AMOLED display.

With 3G talk time, the Galaxy S III put up some pretty amazing scores, surviving for a whopping 10 hours and 20 minutes of constant talk on a single charge. That’s among the best we’ve seen on a smartphone, unless you count the DROID RAZR MAXX and it’s 20 hour and 24 minute talk time on the same test.

When it comes to web browsing, the Galaxy S III lasted 5 hours and 17 minutes, which throws it right in the middle of the pack. There are plenty of smartphones out there that show up the Galaxy S III in this test however, including the Galaxy S Blaze 4G, HTC One V and of course the DROID RAZR MAXX. Among the other devices that best the Galaxy S III here are a number Windows Phone and iOS devices.

For video playback, the Galaxy S III returns to the top of the pack, again only getting beat out by the DROID RAZR MAXX with 10 hour and 1 minute of battery. That’s 10 hours of continuous video playback to drain almost 90% of the battery.

All in all, I think we can safely say the Galaxy S III has battery life that will easily last you a single work day, which for us hardcore smartphone users is all we really need. I don’t know about the rest of you, but I’m automatic about charging my phone every night before bed and I bet I’m not alone in that.
