Lenovo Vibe Shot Battery Life Test

By 04:11 Fri, 30 Jul 2021 Comments


The Lenovo Vibe Shot packs a surprisingly beefy battery for a 5-incher. 3,000mAh rivals the Xperia Z lineup, which is known for remarkable battery life. The Snapdragon 615 chipset should do quite well too.

"Should," but the Endurance rating of 54 hours is less than we expected. The ZTE Nubia Z9 mini (2,900mAh, S615) lasted 10 hours longer, while the OnePlus X matched it (2,520mAh, recent S800 chipset). What went wrong? Let's investigate.

The Talk time of 16 hours and a bit is less than the Z9 mini, but beats out the OnePlus and the Huawei Honor 7 (3,100mAh, Kirin 935). The Xperia Z5 Compact lasts almost double this time with a smaller battery though, so the Vibe Shot is average but there's plenty of room to optimize.

The Web browsing time of 8 hours is more competitive, though there are plenty of phones that push past the 10 hour imprint with 3,000mAh or less in their tank. The Huawei P8 (2,600mAh) lasted over 13 hours, but the Nexus 5X (2,700mAh) did 8 and a half hours with the latest Android.

The culprit seems to be the Video player, the Lenovo Vibe Shot couldn’t create it to 6 hours while playing video on a loop. Even the OnePlus X (which tanked on the Web test with a 6:30 score) did 7 hours. Snapdragon 615 does not have the best video decoding hardware, but the ZTE Nubia Z9 mini lasted an hour longer with the same chipset and the classy screen brightness setting.

The Lenovo Vibe Shot is a dual-SIM phone, but that doesn’t have much of an effect on the battery life. Adding a second SIM card shaved a mere 2 hours from its Endurance rating – going from 54 hours to 52.


With moderate usage you can easily go two days on a single charge with the Shot, provided you don't watch a lot of videos. You'll be installing a third-party video player anyway (the built-in one isn’t very good), so they may offer better efficiency.
