One of the new features that got everyone pretty excited about when the iPhone 11 smartphones were announced, was the promise of battery life that would last hours longer than the previous gen iPhones. Many thought it was marketing hyperbole, but based on the reviews we’ve read so far, it seems that Apple has indeed delivered what they promised.
In fact, if you’d like to see how well the iPhone 11’s battery holds up against the competition, you might want to check out the video above. This is a battery test by PhoneBuff in which they test the battery life of the iPhone 11 Pro Max against the Samsung Galaxy Note 10+. If you don’t have the time to watch the entire video, spoiler alert: the iPhone wins by a pretty comfortable margin.
Based on the test, the iPhone 11 Pro Max managed to last 27 hours and 5 minutes, where the Galaxy Note 10+ lasted two hours less. The iPhone 11 Pro Max also seemed to last about 3 hours longer than its predecessor, short of Apple’s alleged claims of 4-5 extra battery, but still pretty good overall.
This means that if you’re a relatively light user, you could in theory recharge your phone once every 2 days. That being said, your mileage may vary depending on your usage habits and patterns, but overall, it is pretty promising for those looking to upgrade or those who have already bought it.
