    Samsung Galaxy S III Smokes The Competition in Web-Browsing Battery Tests


    If you are a person who spends a lot of time browsing the web on your smartphone, then you would be wise to consider the Samsung Galaxy S III. According to a new study by Which?, the Galaxy S III easily crushes much of the competition in a battery web-browsing test. In the study, the SGS3 scored a 349 minutes of browser time, and the Sony Xperia S scoring the closest with a 276 minutes. The HTC One X came in third with 226 minutes, while the iPhone 4S and iPhone 5 were far behind with 208 and 200 respectively.

    Keep one thing in mind about this study. One phone was notably absent from the testing that would likely have changed the results of this race. That phone is the Motorola RAZR MAXX with a 3300 mAh battery and 21 hours of rated talk time. Of course, regardless, it's still a pleasant surprise to see how efficient Samsung has made their flagship device. What do you guys think? Do these statistics jive with your experiences of the device, or do you think they sound exaggerated?

    I think my battery is great. Gsam has an average of around 16 hours for me. I'll take that any day. :thumbup:

    Sg3 browser brightness by default is low brightness. I bet this was not adjusted to match brightness of other phones. If so, of course it would win.

    Great post.

    This is about in line with my own estimates as well.

    Well yea but in order to get these results you have to use default browser with reduced screen light. I'm always using Chrome, but still, the battery stands pretty awesome.

    I am very pleased with the battery life of the S III as long as you don't have a lot going in the background.
