Need a phone that lasts and lasts right through until bedtime and beyond? Check out these phones from Vodafone that have enough juice to keep you connected, for longer.
There’s nothing worse than reaching lunchtime and noticing you’ve already sucked through 70 percent of your phone’s battery, especially if you left your charging cable at home. Rather than limiting your phone usage, why not treat yourself to a new a phone with a big battery and smart software optimisation?
Thankfully, there are loads of awesome phones that with a bigger battery – allowing you to browse, game, stream and do more, for longer. Here’s what’s on offer from Vodafone UK:
iPhone XS & iPhone XS Max
Last week, Apple took to the stage to show the world the new iPhone XS, iPhone XS Max, and iPhone XR, to much fanfare. While Apple hasn’t specified the exact mAh (milliampere hour – the standard metric for battery capacity) number of the batteries in its new devices, Apple boasts that the iPhone XS will last up-to 30 minutes longer per day than the iPhone X, while the mighty iPhone XS Max will go for an hour and a half more.
In terms of talk time, the iPhone XS will give you up to 20 hours, while the iPhone XS Max will net you a jaw-aching 25 hours. iPhones are famously able to make the most of what they’ve got in the battery department thanks to iOS, which is pretty clever when it comes to sipping power usage and putting unused apps to sleep.
Samsung Galaxy Note 9
With a large 6.4-inch, edge-to-edge Infinity Display, the Samsung Galaxy Note 9 needs a nice big battery to keep it running all through the day. But Samsung’s gone above and beyond here, opting to squeeze in a huge 4,000 mAh battery.
All that extra juice can be put to use on high-performance gaming (thanks to a water-carbon cooling system), let you snap away with a class-leading camera system, and allow you to indulge in hours of precision drawing and note taking using the S Pen – Samsung’s Bluetooth-enabled stylus.
Land Rover Explore
For those who like to live life on the edge, or at least in the great outdoors, the Land Rover Explore is the perfect match: it’s so rugged that it can withstand muddy, dusty and wet conditions (both in salt and fresh water) like no other, and even includes a screen protector that’s factory fitted. It’s proper tough.
On top of that, the Land Rover Explore features a meaty 4,000 mAh battery to stop you running out of power on your adventures, so that you can navigate unknown territory using GPS and take advantage of what will probably be countless nature photo ops. It’ll possibly last longer than you can in treacherous conditions.
Huawei P20 Pro
Boasting the world’s first Leica Triple Camera with AI, the Huawei P20 Pro is packed with smarts that all benefit from a large 4,000 mAh battery.
While photography is a key focus on Huawei phones, it’s really the onboard AI that’s the secret to its success in a lot of different areas. It’ll intelligently stabilise your images, , but the P20 Pro’s ever-learning tech will also provide you longer lasting power. That’s because the AI-driven power management system learns from your everyday use and adapts its consumption to give you maximum efficiency.. Somehow manage to drain the battery? Huawei’s SuperCharge feature will have you up and running in a flash.
Sony Xperia XA2
If you’re really into your selfies, what could possibly be better than extending your arms and staring down the lens of a camera? Staring down the lens of a super-wide camera, of course! The Xperia XA2 features a 120-degree wide-angle lens so your selfies are a little more inclusive of the world around you.
It’s a great feature, but we’re here to talk about batteries, right? Well, you’re in luck here too: the XA2’s 3,300 mAh (while sounding small, in comparison to the others above) battery is there to keep you connected right through the day, even if you want to spend all day streaming HD video on that gorgeous 5.2-inch display. And, as with the Huawei P20 Pro, Sony’s got some clever inbuilt tech (called Smart Stamina) that monitors your use throughout the day and adapts the power needs accordingly.
