Huawei G8 Battery Life Test

By 09:51 Thu, 29 Jul 2021 Comments


It is often times hard to escape from the shadow of your sibling - this is especially accurate for a lot of budget-friendly handsets nowadays that are specifically intended to be a more-affordable substitute for their bigger brothers. The Huawei G8 that we recently reviewed finds itself in precisely this position. It is hard not to compare it to the Mate S and the G8 doesn't have too many arguments there.

But, although the G8 is objectively inferior to the Mate S in almost every way, there is still one department where the budget-friendly model managed to best its flagship counterpart and that is battery life.

The Huawei G8 makes much better utilize of its 3000 mAh battery pack than the Mate S manages with its 2700 mAh one. The G8's slightly thicker body might not be to everybody's liking, but it did allow for that extra 300 mAh to be fitted and definitely contributed towards there respectable 70 hours endurance rating that it scored.


Seeing how the G8 is a dual-SIM device, you can also acquire 69 hours with a pair of network connections and 71 hours with only one, which is an impressive 9 to 11 hours more than the Mate S. It is also worth noting that the Mate S also has the benefit of a more power-efficient AMOrganic Light-Emitting Diode (OLED) panel, which means that the bulk of the superior battery performance can be attributed to a more efficient chipset (the Snapdragon 615 in this case) and also better power management.

Breaking the score down to its components, we find an impressive talk time of almost 28 hours. That is probably the one aspect in which the G8 treads in accurate flagship territory better than its high-discontinue sibling – the Mate S. It is a huge incompatibility between the two - and it might be a gigantic deal if you still tdiscontinue to utilize your phone to talk more than anything else. However, there is note to be made here - sadly, the G8 exhibited rather pool sound quality during our call test.
