Top 5 Smartphones with Long Life Battery in 2017

With extreme battery life capable smartphones being created in dark underground labs where they all pray to the god of Milliamp Hours (mAh)… I thought it was about time that I let the cat out of the bag and share this complete list of battery-centric mobile devices.
Battery life in smartphones is still a hot topic and a has always been real pain-point for many a new phone owners. Nothing gets on your nerves more than a phone that constantly needs topping up throughout the day.

So with the hate of poor battery life firmly in my heart, I vow that all phones henceforth (in this article at least) have at least a 5000mAh battery. Don’t know your Milliamps from your Millipedes? More than 5000mAh is easily enough to see you through a full days use and even safely into day 2, if not day 3, without having to connect yourself to a power supply.

HERE ARE THE LIST OF SMARTPHONES WITH LONG LIFE BATTERY

1. Moto E4 Plus 5000mAh

Even Lenovo has jumped on the big battery bandwagon and released a Plus version of their Moto E4. The Moto e$ plus comes with a bigger screen and reaches the 5000 mAh threshold to make it into this article.

Buying a bigger brand like the Moto comes with its Pros & Cons. The upside is that you get regular OS updates, more accessories and better support. The flip-side is that this comes at the expense of raw tech hardware and performance.
The Moto E4 Plus comes with a power efficient low-end Snapdragon processor and about the half the RAM we’re seeing on similarly priced smaller brands.

2. Xiaomi Mi Max 2

The Xiaomi Mi Max is just that with a whopping 6.44″ Full-HD screen and a hefty 5300mAh battery to power the smartphone beast to the… drum roll… Max! Whilst you won’t be getting the same amount of battery life you would from a 5″ phone with 5000mAh it’ll still be enough to last you well into the 2nd day.
What’s so impressive about the Xiaomi Mi Max 2 is that it comes with a set of mid-high range hardware but is priced well below the current flagships! This combo of decent specs, enormous screen real-estate and big battery is definitely going to put the Mi Max 2 high up on people’s wishlist.

4. Ulefone Power 2 – Battery Life All-rounder

The successor to the all-mighty Power 1, Ulefone have overhauled their design and components in the Power 2. We still see the same impressive 6050mAh battery but we treated to the latest Android OS 7 Nougat and a full metal body as well as an array of component upgrades.
There’s been quite a jump in performance when compared to the Power 1 with an upgrade to the Mali-860, storage has quadrupled to 64GB and I’m happy to see a front-facing fingerprint reader.
Overall, the Ulefone Power 2 is a well-rounded smartphone with impressive specs and even more impressive battery life. It does come in a little heavy at 210 grams, but it’s a pay-off for the enormous battery.
