The HTC One Mini beats every smartphone in the list in terms of standby time. Supposedly, it lasts over 600 hours on 3G, according to the specifications provided by the manufacturer. On the other side of the spectrum is the Apple iPhone 5, which only lasts over 200 hours.
The HTC One Mini, however, does not offer as good a number of hours in terms of 3G talk time. It only promises up to 13 hours and 20 minutes. Leading such category, however, is its bigger sibling, the HTC One, whose battery life reaches more than 16 hours in 3G talk time. The Apple iPhone 5 once again offers a small number of hours in such category.
The HTC One Mini does not have a very high battery capacity, offering only 1800 mAh. In the graph, it is found almost at the bottom of the list, just above the Apple iPhone 5, which again takes the lowest spot. Among the smartphones in the list, the Samsung Galaxy S4 has the largest battery capacity, with 2600 mAh.
The information that appears in these graphs was taken from the specifications released by the manufacturers, instead of actual tests. Therefore, they which may be slightly different from how the batteries perform in actual use, depending on the user’s activities on the handset. Typically, battery life is affected by various factors, such as the kind of wallpaper used, to the use of the vibration feature, charging the smartphone at a particular temperature, as well as screen brightness, among others. These factors, along with the battery capacity, would dictate how long a smartphone battery would last in actual use.
