The Samsung Galaxy S4 was presented just over two weeks ago. In the first performance tests or benchmarks, the results were really good. So much so that the Samsung Galaxy S4 surpassed the iPhone 5, doubling the final score. The European phone version will be presented to the market with an eight-core Exynos Octa processor, with a potential never seen in our territory. The Samsung Galaxy S4 is the first phone to arrive in our country equipped with a heart of these characteristics. But this is not the only special feature of this smartphone. Apart from having a great five-inch high-definition screen (1080p), it has an integrated removable lithium-ion battery with a capacity of 2,600 milliamps. But do you know what the exact power of this piece is? The GSMArena media outlet has done the first detailed tests on its autonomy. And here you have the results.
The Samsung Galaxy S4 has taken the first position in all analyses. In the first, in which 3G talk time was considered, the device lasted around 14 hours (13 hours and 53 minutes) without turning off. Its performance is on par with the HTC One but is better than the iPhone 5 and other Android devices. In browsing time, the Samsung Galaxy S4 also wins. When browsing between pages, the Korean device can work for 8 hours and 42 minutes, just a little longer than the HTC One, the iPhone 5, and other smartphones equipped with the Google platform. But there is more. And the longevity of the battery has also been taken into account when playing videos. In this case, the Samsung Galaxy S4 is much better than the other competitors. It can support 10 hours and 16 minutes of playing multimedia content perfectly.
But what role do these analyses play in this smartphone’s regular functioning? Well, in short, and as the author of the analysis himself explains, the Samsung Galaxy S4 can offer its users an average autonomy of up to 63 hours in its combined performance after a day of normal operation with tasks like an hour calling on the phone, another hour browsing the Internet, and another time playing video. You will not do all these daily, so the battery could offer you slightly longer autonomy. On the other hand, you will have to consider what functions you have active ( assisted GPS, constant search for WiFi networks …) or if you use applications with a lot of energy consumption, such as some editing applications or video games.
The Samsung Galaxy S4 was presented on March 14 and will soon go on sale. A day after its launch, Samsung confirmed that the phone would be in Spain from the end of April. The date and price have not yet been specified, but we will be attentive to providing you with all the information.
