Before we get to the list, you should know that these aren’t just the Android phones with the largest batteries. Bigger isn’t always the best, especially if it has sluggish charging to match. Instead, we’ve gone for the devices that offer long-lasting battery life, reliable charging, and good longevity in the same package.

We’ve done our best to include everything from flagships to budget-friendly options, so let’s get to it.

Best Android phones with the best battery life:

Editor’s note: We’ll be updating this list of the best Android phones with the best battery life regularly as new devices launch.


1. Samsung Galaxy S22 Plus

The Samsung Galaxy S22 Plus may offer a bit less overall than the S22 Ultra, but it’s a better buy for those who care about battery life. It packs a 4,500mAh cell with 45W wired and 15W wireless charging support. The phone also supports Samsung’s Wireless Powershare feature, which is the company’s marketing term for reverse wireless charging.

During our testing, we got around seven hours of screen-on time. This isn’t enough to get through two full days, but you should be able to get a day and a half of usage from the battery.

The Google Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro are definitely among the best battery phones you can get. The smaller of the two sports a 4,614mAh battery, while the Pro model packs a 5,003mAh cell. On paper, they support 30W wired charging, although we found that the actual speeds are lower — read more here. You can expect around 6.5 hours of screen-on time from the Pro model, while the regular Pixel 6 offers around five hours of screen-on time.

Google took another approach to design this time around, playing with looks to make these phones stand out from the crowd. Their playful colors are fun, build quality meets premium standards, and the overall design is flattering.

Specs are worthy of a true flagship, too. Both phones come with a Google Tensor chipset, which competes with the best alternatives. Along with 8GB/12GB of RAM, these devices won’t fall behind in performance. The large AMOLED screens also feature a Full HD+ or QHD+ resolution and 90Hz or 120Hz refresh rates, depending on whether you get the Pixel 6 or the 6 Pro.

3. Vivo X80 Pro

The Vivo X80 Pro sits proudly on our list of the best battery phones for good reason. It sports a 4,700mAh battery with 80W charging and 50W wireless charging. During our testing, we got around seven hours of screen-on time, which translates to around a day and a half of average use.

It’s the best phone in the company’s lineup and is aimed at those who are looking for a powerful device. Thanks to the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 chipset and plenty of RAM, it should handle just about any task with ease. It also comes with a very capable main camera, the best in-display fingerprint scanner you can get on a phone, and there’s even a charger in the box.

The phone does have a few drawbacks, though, with the main one being that there’s just too much bloatware on board. The availability is also quite limited at the moment.


Vivo X80 Pro specs:

  • Display: 6.78-inch, QHD+
  • SoC: Snapdragon 8 Gen 1
  • RAM: 8/12GB
  • Storage: 256/512GB
  • Cameras: 50, 48, 12, and 8MP
  • Front camera: 32MP
  • Battery: 4,700mAh
  • Software: Android 12

4. Asus ROG Phone 5

Our current gaming king should be no surprise on this list. After all, gaming has some of the biggest drain on the battery life of anything you do with your phone. Asus didn’t want to leave anything to chance with its latest ROG Phone 5 and jammed it full with a pair of 3,000mAh batteries that add up to a whopping 6,000mAh.

Even better, the two cells charge in parallel so that you can get back to 100% even faster. Asus added 65W wired speeds to its gaming powerhouse, which can get you back to a full charge in less than an hour. You’ll also notice that the USB-C port is mounted on the side so you can stay right in the game while you charge.

Our thoughts: Asus ROG Phone 5 review — King of the hill

Unfortunately, Asus decided to skip wireless charging for its powerful gaming flagship. It’s easy enough to understand as the phone can run hot under heavy usage, but a surprising omission either way.

keep in mind that there the ROG Phone 5s series is also available, offering the same battery size but sporting a slightly faster chispet, among other things.


Asus ROG Phone 5 specs:

  • Display: 6.78-inch, Full HD+
  • SoC: Snapdragon 888
  • RAM: 8/16GB
  • Storage: 128/256GB
  • Cameras: 64, 13, and 5MP
  • Front camera: 24MP
  • Battery: 6,000mAh
  • Software: Android 11

5. Redmi Note 11

It’s hard to beat the Redmi Note 11 when it comes to budget devices since it offers a lot of value for money. Although it’s not officially available in the US. you can get the international version on Amazon — which comes in at around $250.

You get a solid build quality, great screen,  and surprisingly good performance for such an affordable handset. Specs include a Snapdragon 680 processor, up to 6GB of RAM, as much as 128GB of storage, and a 6.43-inch 1080p AMOLED screen with a 90Hz refresh rate.

Then there’s the battery life. The phone sports a hefty 5,000mAh battery that’s good for more than a day and a half of use, even with the display set to 90Hz. Dropping the refresh rate to 60Hz gives you nearly two full days of battery life. It powers up quickly, too. The Note 11 ships with a 33W charger in the box that charges the phone from 0% to 100% in just over an hour.


Redmi Note 11 specs

  • Display: 6.43-inch, Full HD+
  • SoC: Snapdragon 680
  • RAM: 4/6GB
  • Storage: 64/128GB
  • Cameras: 50, 8, 2, and 2MP
  • Front camera: 13MP
  • Battery: 5,000mAh
  • Software: Android 11

6. OnePlus 10 Pro

The OnePlus 10 Pro sports a 5,000mAh battery with support for 80W charging, although you only get a 65W charger included in the box in the US. The phone also supports 50W wireless charging and 5W reverse wireless charging. During our testing, we got around 6-7 hours of screen-on time, depending on usage patterns.

Here: OnePlus 10 Pro buying guide

The OnePlus 10 Pro has an outstanding design and powerful performance. Additionally, you’ll enjoy a large 6.7-inch QHD+ screen with a 120Hz refresh rate. In terms of camera performance, we like the primary camera, but weren’t too convinced by the secondary sensors. Regardless, we love what OnePlus has done in collaboration with Hasselblad. Hasselblad’s color enhancements make images more true-to-life. You can read all about it in our full OnePlus 10 Pro review.

The phone also features the signature Alert slider on the side and comes with as much as 12GB of RAM, but it doesn’t have an IP rating — unless you go with the T-Mobile variant.


OnePlus 10 Pro specs:

  • Display: 6.7-inch, QHD+
  • SoC: Snapdragon 8 Gen 1
  • RAM: 8/12GB
  • Storage: 128/256/512GB
  • Cameras: 50, 48, and 8MP
  • Front camera: 32MP
  • Battery: 5,000mAh
  • Software: Android 12

7. Motorola Edge Plus (2022)

Based on our review, this is a one-and-a-half-day battery life phone. It packs a 4,800mAh battery with 30W charging that gets the cell from zero to full in about an hour. The phone also supports 15W wireless charging and can handle 5W reverse wireless charging.

The Motorola Edge Plus (2022) sports a vivid screen that comes in at 6.7 inches, features great speakers, and has all the performance you need due to being powered by the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 chipset. It also comes with three rear cameras, has an IP52 rating, and supports both sub-6GHz and mmWave 5G.

This phone is far from perfect, though. Although the battery life is great, the build quality is nothing to write home about. The cameras are also average at best, and the update policy is questionable.


Motorola Edge Plus (2022) specs:

  • Display: 6.7-inch, Full HD+
  • SoC: Snapdragon 8 Gen 1
  • RAM: 8/12GB
  • Storage: 128/256/512GB
  • Cameras: 50, 50, and 2MP
  • Front camera: 60MP
  • Battery: 4,800mAh
  • Software: Android 12

8. Motorola Moto G Power (2022)

The new Edge Plus (2022) isn’t the only Motorola phone to make our cut. It’s joined by the ultra-affordable Moto G Power (2022), which comes in at just $199. Motorola’s Moto G Power bucks the budget trend of high-gloss mirrored backs in favor of a patterned finish, and it comes with a solid main camera.

As for the battery, you’ll be happy to find a large 5,000mAh cell onboard. The battery itself is what earns the Moto G Play’s way onto our list of phones with the best battery life. The cell will last you anywhere between two and three days at light to moderate usage. There’s no wireless charging support, though, which is understandable given the price tag of the handset.

Additionally, you won’t find much in the way of fast charging. The device comes with a 10W charger and cable in the box, and you won’t have much need for anything faster. This means it will take a while to get back to a full charge.


Motorola Moto G Power (2022) specs:

  • Display: 6.5-inch, HD+
  • SoC: Mediatek Helio G37
  • RAM: 4GB
  • Storage: 64/128GB
  • Cameras: 50, 2, and 2MP
  • Front camera: 8MP
  • Battery: 5,000mAh
  • Software: Android 11

9. Samsung Galaxy A53

The Samsung Galaxy A53 represents just how good a cheap Android phone can be. It offers a well-rounded experience for only $449. The battery comes in at 5,000mAh and should get you through the day with ease. Don’t expect a two-day battery life, but a day and a half is manageable. The charging speed is capped at 25W, and there’s no wireless charging on board.

The large 6.5-inch display comes with a Full HD+ resolution and a 120Hz refresh rate. You can choose between 4GB and 8GB of RAM with up to 256GB of expandable storage. Samsung’s in-house Exynos 1280 processor might not be the most powerful around, but it doesn’t hold back the experience.

Once you move to the camera setup, things get even better. The 64MP main camera captures good results in almost any lighting, and the 5MP macro lens adds a little more flexibility. You even get a 32MP selfie lens, which is significantly above most on this list.


Samsung Galaxy A53 specs

  • Display: 6.5-inch, Full HD+
  • SoC: Exynos 1280
  • RAM: 4/6/8GB
  • Storage: 128/256GB
  • Cameras: 64, 12, 5, and 5MP
  • Front camera: 32MP
  • Battery: 5,000mAh
  • Software: Android 12

10. Oppo Find X5 Pro

The Oppo Find X5 Pro looks gorgeous, featuring a ceramic back that’s said to be twice stronger than glass. While there’s a camera bump, it blends in better than in most other handsets.

Specs are nothing to scoff at, offering a Snapdragon 8 Gen 1, 8/12GB of RAM, and a 5,000mAh battery. It also sports a gorgeous 6.7-inch QHD+ AMOLED panel with a 120Hz refresh rate. It’s IP68-rated, and the triple-camera setup is outstanding. There’s also a fast in-display fingerprint scanner on board as well as great stereo speakers.

Our thoughts: Oppo Find X5 Pro review

The battery comes in at 5,000mAh and supports 80W wired charging as well as 50W wireless charging. You’re looking at six to eight hours of reasonably heavy use here, which should get you through the day relatively easy.


Oppo Find X5 Pro specs:

  • Display: 6.7-inch, QHD+
  • SoC: Snapdragon 8 Gen 1
  • RAM: 8/12GB
  • Storage: 256/512GB
  • Cameras: 50, 50, and 13MP
  • Front camera: 32MP
  • Battery: 5,000mAh
  • Software: Android 12
