Smartphone users can be subtly sub-divided into regular users, average users, and heavy users. Regular users will be folks that “have other things to do”other than clinch on their smartphones all day. These are people with a regular 8 am to 4 pm job and on average, they have to click their phones for a few hours daily. Average users spend more time on the smartphone but do not game. Heavy users add intense gaming to whatever the regular and average smartphone users do. The recent battery test for the iPhone 13 Pro Max from PhoneArena considers the regular users. Thus, if you are thinking average or heavy usage, this report will not be applicable.
For the first time, an iPhone uses a battery capacity that exceeds 4000 mAh. The iPhone 13 Pro Max comes with a 4352 mAh battery. Although there is still a gap on the books compared to Android’s 5000 mAh+, under Apple’s hardware and software tuning, its actual battery life has been smashed in the evaluation of multiple media. It appears that Apple’s 4352 mAh battery could equate to Android’s 6000 mAh batteries.
iPhone 13 Pro Max retains 7% after three days
According to PhoneArena, its iPhone 13 Pro Max took 3 days and the battery still had 7% remaining. The daily usage for the test is moderate, with a cumulative screen-on time of about 3 hours per day. The test shows that the Pro Max can continuously browse the web for 18 hours and 52 minutes, stream videos for 10 hours and 23 minutes, and play 3D mobile games for 10 hours and 29 minutes. According to the test, even with intense usage, the iPhone 13 Pro Max is pretty good. This device can go up to 12 hours of intense use daily.
However, despite the three days usage time for regular users, PhoneArena does not recommend going on a weekend trip without a charger. However, users can further optimize their battery by turning on the power-saving mode. This will make the smartphone run on the 60Hz refresh rate which will extend the battery life.
There are a couple of factors that contribute to the fairly good battery life of the iPhone 13 Pro Max. These factors put together ensure that the battery of life of this flagship does not disappoint. First off, Apple used an efficient A15 Bionic chip which optimizes the performance of this device. Unfortunately, it is one of the least talked-about features of the iPhone 13 series. Secondly, this device supports a dynamic refresh rate that varies between 1Hz and 120Hz. Lastly, the iPhone 13 series uses bigger batteries, especially the Pro Max model that exceeds 4000 mAh for the first time.
