It's pretty good but if battery life is your main concern then you can get a different phone with close to double the battery life with a significantly smaller battery.

Re: Mate 9 wins battery test... by a alot

Can't say I have much respect for this test, or most of it's kind. The test conditions aren't identical (medium brightness means different things on different devices, etc.) and the selection of devices is pretty weak. OP3 isntead of OP3T, S7 Edge is missing, Pixel XL is missing, Moto X Play, etc. Also probably the biggest problem, is that this does nothing to simulate real world usage. That said, this gets a "well, I would hope so. 1080p with 4k mAh battery needs to equal some huge battery life.

Moto z Play is 1080p with 3510mah battery and it gets 15-18 hours SOT in a day based on what most forum users say.

The play is a really solid phone especially at the 399 price right now

I bought mine for$20 after all promotions, but for those who don't want to do work then the unlocked moto z play refurbished was$245 from best buy a few days ago. Granted it is refurbished but Best Buy refurbished is top notch in my usage. I have bought over half a dozen refurbished phones and they all looked mint.

The Mate 9 has pretty darn good battery life.

Actually, it's a bit of a monstrosity in that regard.

Any specifics? I ask because on some days i use 12-13 hours SOT and based on the OP, it might not be able to do that on a single charge.

I'm not aware of a phone that can go a single charge with 12-13 hours of SOT. I'm getting 6.5-7 hours SOT on my Mate 9.

I get about 6 on the mate. Was getting 4.5 to 5 on v20. Only phone I know of that would be close to this is the Moto z play. I know people report 10 hours or more on that phone.

Besides the moto Z play droid, my ZTE zmax pro did just about 10 hours SOT.
