Among the recent Galaxy S22 Ultra, Apple iPhone 13 Pro Max, OnePlus 10 Pro, Xiaomi 12S Ultra, and Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 4/Fold 4, the great autonomy champion is not necessarily the one you think.
A few days ago, Samsung formalized its new generation of foldable smartphones, with the Z Flip 4 and Z Fold 4. In terms of looks, compared to the previous generation, the changes are relatively discreet, and it is mainly on the performance side that this new range aims to stand out, in particular thanks to the presence on board of Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 processor. . A SoC that promises to combine both power and control energy consumption (for better autonomy).
The new Samsung Z Fold 4 and Flip 4 are more enduring than the Galaxy S22 Ultra
Indeed, by combining the new Qualcomm processor with a 3,700 mAh and 4,400 mAh battery, Samsung aims to offer a very marked increase in autonomy with its new Z Flip 4 and Z Fold 4. linger on the TechDroider channel, which has obviously measured the autonomy of the new terminals of the Korean brand, comparing it with other premium smartphones of the moment.
In this test, the new Samsung smartphones were put through their paces alongside the Galaxy S22 Ultra (5,000mAh), Apple’s iPhone 13 Pro Max (4,352mAh), and the new OnePlus 10 Pro ( 5,000mAh), and finally the Xiaomi 12S Ultra (4,860mAh). And in this little game, Samsung’s foldable smartphones proved to be more enduring… than the Galaxy S22 Ultra, despite a significantly higher 5,000 mAh battery.
As part of the test, the smartphones were subjected to a variety of activities, from web browsing and social apps to gaming and video playback. The Samsung Galaxy S22 Ultra was the first to die, after 8 hours and 56 minutes (and a temperature of 50°).
The Galaxy Z Flip 4 saw its battery drop to 0% in 9 hours and 4 minutes (42°), while the Galaxy Z Fold 4 lasted 9 hours and 18 minutes, with a temperature slightly below 40°. Enough to demonstrate the effectiveness of the SoC signed by Qualcomm and the technological advances of Samsung.
In this little game, it was Apple’s iPhone 13 Pro Max that came out on top, with a total endurance of 10 hours and 35 minutes. It is also the only smartphone in the selection to have managed to exceed the milestone of 10 hours of autonomy.
