Smartphones with Long Battery Power: These days, battery life is more important than ever, thanks to the big screens, superfast processors and demanding applications we find on the latest phones. After all, what good is that advanced camera or high-resolution display if your handset is dead before the sun goes down? The list below is a closer look at the phones that make the grade when it comes to all-day battery life.
Smartphones with Long Battery Power
- ZenFone 3 Zoom
You will never have to sweat making it from sunrise to sundown with this older ZenFone Asus. The ZenFone 3 Zoom features a massive 5,000 mAh battery, and while its Snapdragon 625 processor is not the fastest CPU available, it does a pretty good job managing power consumption. Meaning you are unlikely to run out of juice capturing photos with the ZenFone’s dual rear cameras or its 13-MP selfie cam. You can also use your ZenFone 3 Zoom as a portable power pack, charging other devices via a reverse charging feature. Lenovo Phones with Good Processing Speed
- Cat S41
If you are impressed by the durability and longevity of the Cat S60 but put off by its $600-plus price tag, consider the Cat S41. The more affordable phone can also stand up to the punishment of job sites and the great outdoors, but it s the 5,000 mAh battery that really impresses. Not only does the Cat S41 match the ZenFone 4 Max with the second-best result on battery test, but you can also turn the S41 into an external power pack that boosts the battery of other devices. We wish the camera on the S41 performed better, but if you need a phone that does not require a charge to get you through the day, Cat’s latest smartphone is tough to beat.

- Moto E4 Plus
What a difference a 5,000 mAh can make. Moto’s E4 fell short as a good budget option, due to disappointing battery life. For the E4 Plus, Motorola went with a larger battery and reaped serious rewards on battery test, lasting nearly 15 hours. For a phone that will cost you less than $200, that is an impressive result, especially since the display and rear camera on the E4 Plus are pretty solid, too.
