When you are buying a smartphone today, one of the most important criteria that you should look for is battery life, especially if you use your smartphone for streaming music and videos, and surfing the Internet the entire day.
Sadly, as smartphones have progressed, one thing which has deteriorated over time is the battery life. The days of the old Nokia phones are long gone, when you had to charge the device only twice a month.
You can carry a power bank with you wherever you go, however, this is not the solution to your problem. What you need is a smartphone that can last the entire day, even with heavy usage.
Here are the top 5 smartphones you should consider if you are looking for great battery life:
Samsung Galaxy S7/S7 Edge - Rs 43,400/Rs 50,900
The S7 packs a 3000mAh battery, while the S7 Edge comes with a 3600mAh battery. The battery life of these phones is exceptional even with their bright screens and always on display.
What's more, both smartphones support quick charging, allowing you to give them a fast top-up recharge.
