Microsoft Lumia 950 and Lumia 950 XL battery life


GSMArena News
By popular demand we are now giving you the full battery life breakdowns of the anticipated Microsoft flagship duo - the Lumia 950 and the Lumia 950 XL. We already published the Lumia 950 review and we found it to be a great way to restart the Windows mobile series. And while the Lumia 950 XL review is still in the pipeline you are getting a sneak peek of what's coming next week. Both flagships utilize high-resolution Quad HD AMOLED panels - the Lumia 950 has it in 5.2" size, while its XL sibling stretches it to 5.7". The chipsets are quite different though - the regular 950 model has the Snapdragon 808 with a hexa-core processor, while the 950 XL runs on the Snapdragon 810 with an octa-core processor and liquid cooling. Windows 10 Mobile turned out a real surprise, offering great new features and long awaited optimizations, plus universal apps across other devices. The PureView camera turned out one of the best in business. But what about the battery? The Lumia 950 is powered by a 3,000 mAh unit, while the XL has 10% more power supply at 3,340 mAh. We expected the more powerful Snapdragon 810 chip married to a bigger screen to perform worse than the 808 platform but turns out we were quite wrong. The Lumia 950 XL posted great and very respectable 17 hours endurance on the 3G talk time test, doubling the Lumia 950 score.
