What Battery Size should your next phone have?
HIGHLIGHTS
  • A 3000mAh battery is useful if you only use your smartphones for basic tasks

  • A 4,000mAh battery on a smartphone will ensure the phone should last well over a day

  • A 5000mAh battery will ensure the smartphone will almost never run out in a day

Most of you will look for the latest SoC or more RAM on your smartphones, but trust us on this. Nothing is more important than the battery on a smartphone. After all, without a battery that lasts long enough, all that firepower that the flagship processor offers will essentially be useless. But the question remains, how much battery capacity is the right amount to have?

The answer lies in the way you use your smartphone. If you are a heavy user who is constantly on their phone, you will need a smartphone that not only come with a big battery, but also super fast charging. On the other hand, if you only use your phone to take calls and send messages, a smaller battery in favour of aesthetics should also suffice.

Smartphones with up to 3000mAh battery

With Android applications becoming more and more resource intensive, it’s essential to have at least a 3000mAh battery powering your smartphone. That should at least ensure the phone lasts a typical work day when you take it off the plug in the morning and there’s enough juice left till you reach back home. 3000mAh battery is useful if you only use your smartphones for basic tasks like browsing social media and replying to messages. Now, if you are happy with a small battery, it becomes important to have a fast charging solution available. Phones that support at least 18W fast charging are reliable enough for a quick top-up before setting out on your evening’s engagements.

Smartphones with 4000mAh battery

Now, if your usage involves a fair amount of gaming, using navigation and the likes, a smartphone with a 4,000mAh battery is what you need. A 4,000mAh battery on a smartphone will ensure the phone should last well over a day depending on how heavily you use it. Here too, it’s important to have fast charging not because not only could you need it in emergencies, but a 4,000mAh battery without fast charging will take ages to charge to full capacity.

Smartphones with 5000mAh battery

A smartphone powered by a 5000mAh battery is essential if you are glued to your screen watching movies, playing games or shooting videos. With a 5000mAh battery, the smartphone will almost never run out in a day, no matter how you use it. It’s especially useful for creators and bloggers who would need to use the camera more often than not shooting videos in high-resolution. Even an avid gamer glued to games like PUBG Mobile will need a large 5000mAh battery so that charge doesn’t run out in the middle of the game. But here again you would need fast charging, something that is faster than the typical 18W fast charging most phones offer.
