In a battery battle, the Galaxy S23 Ultra takes against the iPhone 14 Pro Max.
PhoneBuff, a popular YouTube channel, is back with another battle between the iPhone 14 Pro Max and the Samsung S23 Ultra. This time, both phones were put through a rigorous battery test, and while Apple was able to retain its status as the “undisputed battery life champ,” things were getting close, and Samsung did significantly better than any prior Android phone.
When it came to PhoneBuff’s drop test, the Galaxy S23 Ultra outperformed the iPhone 14 Pro Max. Even after four drops, both gadgets were still working. The Galaxy S23 Ultra and the iPhone 14 Pro Max were practically neck and neck in the speed test.
With a single charge, the Galaxy S23 Ultra lasts 27 hours and 6 minutes.
While the Galaxy S23 Ultra has a large 5,000 mAh battery compared to the iPhone 14 Pro Max‘s 4,323 mAh battery, the iPhone won the battery life test, all attributable to the benefit of custom-designed hardware and software and much-reduced multitasking.
When discussing hardware as crucial as the battery, it is critical to read the specs. The iPhone 14 Pro Max has a 6.7-inch display, whilst the Samsung S23 Ultra has a 6.8-inch display. Both feature changeable refresh rates ranging from 1 to 120Hz. The display of Galaxy S23 Ultra has a greater resolution of 1440 x 3088 than the 14 Pro Max‘s 1290 x 2796.
Given all of this, the fact that the iPhone 14 Pro Max outlasted the Galaxy S23 Ultra by 38 minutes is not very noteworthy. The Galaxy S23 Ultra survived for 27 hours and 6 minutes, but the iPhone perished after 27 hours and 44 minutes. Although the Galaxy S23 Ultra could not outlast the iPhone, it offers more capabilities, appropriate multitasking, and more pixels to drive the higher resolution screen.
This test demonstrates how important specialized hardware and software optimized for a device can be in producing superior outcomes. Don’t be concerned. We have a tutorial that will help you get a bit extra battery life out of your Galaxy S23 without sacrificing any vital phone features(like its 120Hz refresh rate).
