This is big: Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge may have incredible battery life

Samsung’s “next big thing” is the Samsung Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 Edge, and now we have a good idea of just how big the battery life may be on at least one of these new Android phones.

That’s a significant 1,000mAh bump over last year’s 5.1-inch Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge, which makes sense given the rumored 5.5-inch S7 Edge’s size increase. Could this Samsung phone go longer than 24 hours?

Space may still be tight inside the Edge variant, as it’s said to have a Snapdragon 820 or Exynos 8 Octa 8890 processor, plus 4GB of RAM and choices of 32GB or 64GB of storage.

Just how big is Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge battery?

A 3,600mAh battery in the Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge would beat almost every other phone out there, including the larger 5.7-inch Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge Plus and its 3,000mAh battery.

The Sony Xperia Z5 Premium comes close with a 3,430mAh battery, the Google Nexus 6P has a 3,450mAh battery and Samsung’s own Galaxy S6 Active dialed it up to a 3,500mAh battery.

Even the Samsung Galaxy S7, the forthcoming flagship without the curves, is rumored to have a much smaller battery of 2,700mAh. That’s still a step up from the 2,500mAh in the Galaxy S6.

Only the Moto X Play with its 3,630 mAh battery and, in the US, the Verizon-exclusive Motorola Droid Turbo 2 with its 3,760 battery can claim to have more juice.

Of course, a bigger battery doesn’t always translate into longer battery life. We found the LG G4‘s 3,000mAh to be superbar when tested, something that should be fixed with the LG G5.
