    Thumbs up LG Battery - 6.5+ hrs of video play back at 100% Brightness

    LG G3 Battery Life Performance Revealed in Endurance Tests

    Those are pretty awesome numbers, my G2 usually get down to around 60% after 3 hrs of web browsing and some video watching at 50% brightness. Look like the G3's battery performance will at least be as good if not better.

    Isn't IB Times one of the websites that comes back with a new rumor posted every day? MKB said as his G3 got hotter it automatically dropped below 100% brightness and wouldn't let you go up to 100% until it cooled down.

    Indeed at about the 4:52 mark in his 'first impressions' video he does mention having brightness forced down to 85-90%. He didn't go in depth with that though. We'll have to wait for reviews.

    Phonearena has report from a Korean guy's testing too and he got 7.8 hours of full bright video on LTE connection.

    That's a very suspect article. I can see the G3 hitting in the same park as the G2, that's fine...but some really outlandish claims are made. Like how 430 nits is double the brightness of competitors panels at 200 nits, it takes four seconds of fact checking to see that's a lie and should have been omitted.

    As to the test type, lots of sites do not test with a publicly verifiable and repeatable video source. Or they use some junk like Big Buck Bunny which is usually h.264 and at a crazy high CQ that eats up all your power. As to the video panel itself, nearly every human consuming video will watch in landscape mode so I find it strange they highlighted portrait mode instead.

    And heh, video playback times for the G Flex were claimed anywhere from 12, 14, 18, even 20 hours on one charge so....this will not last as long as a Note 3 on a charge? But long enough probably?

    I heard the LTE really helps with battery life.

    Not sure on what planet. It goes 2g, 3g, 4g/LTE. GSM tending to use less power than CDMA. And you need at least 3g/hspa+ or thereabouts for video streaming. And if T -Mobile were to soon fuse with Sprint my global band phone could be set to GSM only and last even longer.

    I personally don't believe "reports" about batteries on a phone that isn't in the market yet. I'd wait till the US verison is out and in real users hands before getting your hopes up.

    Sure someone may test on LTE and get great life... Good signal area possibly.. But others might not get that due to weaker areas.

    So so so many factors play into battery life.. Just don't get your hopes up.
