LG G2 > Droid Maxx???
Just read this article
at Phandroid.com. It says that the LG G2 has a better battery than our Droid Maxx. Now, I thought our Maxx was the king of battery life. Is this bologna or is it for real?
The LG G2 is a favorite around these parts, but you may not have thought about the battery life. The G2 outperformed many other Android phones in most battery stress tests. Talk time lasted a very nice 25 hours and 12 minutes. While continuously surfing the web the G2 lasted 11 hours and 22 minutes. In continuous video playback the G2 lasted a 11 hours and 51 minutes. LG should definitely be marketing the battery life of the G2 more.
Motorola DROID Maxx
This is the device everyone expects to see on this list. After all, Motorola designed this phone specifically to have a long-lasting battery. Surprisingly the Maxx did not perform as well as some of the other devices. Talk time for the Maxx was 21 hours and 18 minutes. The continuous surfing test last just 9 hours and 12 minutes. Continuous video playback yielded better results with 16 hours and 35 minutes. The Maxx is still a beast if you need more juice.
