Big battery phones are not a new trend. One can say that bigger batteries have somewhat diminished from the mobile industry given the manufacturers’ insistence on keeping the device slim and lightweight. However, the utility of phones with good battery life cannot be questioned. We all need smartphones that last us the entire day without having to look for a power outlet. Keeping this in mind, we’re going to discuss some of the phones that have the best battery life. These phones are available for purchase right now, and probably will be throughout the year. There are quite a few surprise additions in here, so be sure to have a closer look.

Naturally, we can’t talk about all the big battery phones in the market, which is why we’re going to pick 5 phones with best battery life in 2018. We’ve tried to cover a diverse range of devices, including the more recently launched Energizer handset. Be sure to have a closer look at all these devices.
5 phones with best battery life
Samsung has been at the forefront of innovation in 2017. Starting off with the Galaxy S8, the company continued its good work with the Galaxy Note 8, which in addition to packing an excellent battery, also comes with a remarkable display, camera and performance. It comes with a premium aluminum frame with Corning’s Gorilla Glass 5 covering the front and the back respectively. The phone also comes with the S Pen stylus, allowing users to edit/modify pictures, and interact with the device in more ways than we can imagine. Although Samsung uses a 3,300 mAh battery on the device, the software optimization is what does the trick. The handset runs Android 7.1.1 Nougat out of the box with Samsung’s custom skin on board.
I’m usually not a big fan of custom OEM skins over stock Android, but Samsung’s implementation has got to be one of the best in the market right now. Other specs of the handset include a 6.3-inch 2960 x 1440 resolution Super AMOLED display, dual 12-megapixel cameras on the back, an 8-megapixel front facing camera, 64/128/256GB of internal storage (expandable), 6GB of RAM, the octa-core Snapdragon 835 SoC, and IP68 certified water/dust resistance. The phone also comes with Samsung Pay on board, allowing you to use wireless payments in almost every major retail outlet. As far as features are concerned, Samsung hasn’t cut any corners here. Keeping this in mind, we highly recommend users to give this handset a try. The 64GB unlocked version of the Galaxy Note 8 can be bought via Amazon for $929.99 right now.
This smartphone is not yet widely available in the U.S., so your best bet is to get it imported via Amazon (without U.S. warranty). Coming to the battery life, the Mate 10 Pro packs a mammoth 4,000 mAh unit underneath. This, in combination with Huawei’s version of Android 8.0 Oreo means users get the best battery life possible in a modern day smartphone. Since it’s running Oreo out of the box, the phone is still pretty new in the industry.
In addition to the battery, the phone also packs a massive 6-inch 2160 x 1080 resolution AMOLED display. Given the unique resolution, the aspect ratio for some apps is expected to be a bit off, like with the Galaxy Note 8. The handset is powered by an octa-core HiSilicon Kirin 970 chipset, and 4 or 6GB of RAM. Users get to pick between the 64GB and 128GB storage versions of the Mate 10 Pro. There’s no card slot here, though, so what you see is what you get (sans the space that is required for the operating system and other OEM customizations).
The phone also comes with a dual-camera setup on the back, consisting of a 12-megapixel and a 20-megapixel sensor on the back. The front is packing an 8-megapixel f/2.0 sensor, which should be decent for wide angle selfies. Much like the Galaxy Note 8, this phone is water resistant too (IP67), so you don’t have to worry about the occasional splashes of water or rain. The phone can be bought (without warranty) on Amazon for $678.99.
This is a mid-ranged offering from Samsung that’s widely popular in Asian and European markets. The Galaxy J7 Pro bridges the gap between some of Samsung’s expensive smartphones and the mid-ranged offerings. Keeping this in mind, this is a pretty significant smartphone for the company. Launched in mid-2017, the phone is still pretty fresh in the industry. It packs a 3,600 mAh battery, which is pretty decent given that the phone packs a 1080p display. This means that the phone is expected to last longer than a day on a full charge.
The display is 5.5-inches in size, and is Super AMOLED, which is used on all top shelf Samsung phones. While the lower display resolution is a bit of a letdown, it is a sacrifice worth making given the other features it’s packing. The device also packs a 13-megapixel f/1.7 rear camera, a 13-megapixel f/1.9 front camera, 3GB of RAM, 32/64GB of expandable storage, Android 7.0 Nougat, and the Exynos 7870 octa-core processor. The body is made of aluminum and has glass around it, which gives it a premium feel. The phone also comes with a fingerprint scanner for device unlocking and authentication. The 32GB variant of the phone will set you back by $264.98 via Amazon.
This is the latest phone on the list, as it is barely a week old in the industry. It’s still not available for purchase in most parts of the world, but should soon hit shelves. Energizer is a company known for batteries, and the Power Max P600S is no different. It packs a gargantuan 4,500 mAh unit under the hood, which should keep going for days if used correctly. However, Energizer is a relatively new player in the mobile industry, so we understand if the market is a little skeptical about its arrival.
The phone comes with a 5.9-inch LCD panel, octa-core Mediatek MT6757CD chipset, 13-megapixel + 5-megapixel rear cameras, an 8-megapixel front camera, 32/64GB of expandable storage, 3/6GB of RAM, and Android 7.0 Nougat. It’s a bit of a letdown that the device doesn’t come with Oreo, especially since it’s a 2018 release. The phone is expected to be available via Amazon soon, although there’s no word on when. Pricing info is relatively scarce at this point.
CAT’s rugged phone made the news for packing a FLIR camera (Lepton module), allowing you to take photos in thermal mode. However, the device also comes with a massive battery under the hood, a 3,800 mAh unit. It runs Android 6.0 Marshmallow, so battery optimizations won’t be at their best. However, a 3,800 mAh battery is sufficient to last two days on a full charge.
The phone has a relatively smaller 4.7-inch HD (1280 x 720) a-Si AHVA display, the octa-core Snapdragon 617 processor, 32GB of expandable storage, 3GB of RAM, a 13-megapixel rear camera with the aforementioned FLIR module on board, a 5-megapixel front camera, and a bunch of rugged features to make sure it doesn’t break in your hands. The phone is IP68 certified and MIL-STD-810G compliant. It is also drop resistant up to 1.8m on concrete. The phone will set you back by $629.99 on Amazon.
