Smartphones that come with more complex processors and larger screens are extensively integrating diverse functionality, which require more power, thus increases the pressure on the battery lifetime, says an article on Mental Floss. In addition, due to the competition amongst smartphone companies to make phones thinner, the batteries are getting smaller too.
However, the good news is that technology has become smart enough to utilize higher mAh (Milli-Ampere Hour) batteries even in the thinnest phones, ensuring longer lasting battery life. Here’s a look at the best smartphones available in India with longer battery life.
