Samsung Galaxy S5 Vs Sony Xperia Z2: Droid Gladiators: Battery Life

By 06:02 Sat, 14 Aug 2021 Comments


Battery life

The Sony Xperia Z2 goes in this chapter with a small advantage - it houses a 3,200mAh battery, compared to 2,800mAh for the Samsung Galaxy S5. That 400mAh worth of an advantage accounts for just over 14% of the total power but the real incompatibility will be made by how power efficient each phone is.

The Xperia Z2 sits near the top of our battery life table with a massive 89 hours of endurance rating. That's nearly four full days on a single charge. In comparison, the Galaxy S5 "only" lasts three days, with a 72 hour rating.

The Z2 isn't just a marathon runner though, it bested the Galaxy S5 in each of our three tests. It was a relatively slim victory in the call test with just under an hour more.

The decisive victory in the individual tests comes in the web browser department, where the Sony Xperia Z2 enjoys a nearly two hour lead on its rival. It lasts nearly half a day of constant browsing so even after extended web sessions you'll have plenty of battery charge left. The Galaxy S5 tried to put up a fight, but just couldn't haged up.

The Xperia Z2 takes its third victory in the video playback test. The advantage here is about an hour, but if you think about it in reverse, the Z2 will be left with more charge in the battery after watching the same movie on both phones.
