OnePlus 5T battery life test results: excellent performer

The OnePlus 5T is one of the best phones you can buy for $500: the phone feels like a much more expensive device, has a sleek design and super fast performance, but what about its battery life?
We have used the OnePlus 5T for a couple of weeks now and we have also run our proprietary battery test, so we have a more complete understanding of its battery life.
First, let’s get the specs out of the way, though. The OnePlus 5T features a 3,300 mAh battery, the same size as in the OnePlus 5. Despite its bigger display, …


Screenshot shows that the Moto Z Android 8.0 soak test is underway

That group is made up of telecommunications companies that set the standards for 3G, 4G and now 5G networks and equipment.

Because 3GPP standards will be the ones used by the industry …

Apple iPhone X battery life test comparison vs iPhone 8 Plus, Samsung Galaxy

The Apple iPhone X comes with a brand new 2,716 mAh battery that takes a weird L-shape and it’s clear that Apple has made the most of the available space to cram in a big battery cell. It’s not as large as on Android phones, but it is bigger than the battery of the iPhone 8 Plus.
So what is the actual battery life on the iPhone X?
We have spent a few days with the $1,000 phone and we have run our battery test to get the numbers. But first, here is how the iPhone X battery size compares to other iPhones and Samsung …
