Smartphones with long battery life: our favorites

Add a good double camera, fast face protection and the promise of at least two big Android updates and you have a high-end smartphone for the price of a midranger.
Thanks to the hefty 4000 mAh battery and the relatively economical 6.2 inch full-HD screen, the Pocophone F1 effortlessly lasts a long day. In his review Wouter wrote: “During my test period I did not manage to empty the phone in one day and it usually only had to be on the charger after a day and a half.” It is nice that the battery charges quickly (Quick Charge 3.0) via the modern usb-c connection.
