While Samsung has been singing the praises of the Galaxy S8 since its unveiling last week, it’s been pretty tight-lipped about one important thing: battery life. So, we’ve been concerned. But Phone Arena got a chance to test the larger of the two phones, and as it turns out, there’s no reason to worry. Probably.
In its benchmark testing, Phone Arena found the Galaxy S8+ got exactly eight hours of battery life on a single charge, putting it near the top of the list for Android phones. The S8+ has a 3,500 mAh battery, roughly the same size as the Pixel XL and the OnePlus 3T, but it gets nearly a full extra hour of battery life. In fact, the only phone that bested the S8 in Phone Arena’s testing was the iPhone 7 Plus.
