Samsung Galaxy S23 Ultra and iPhone 14 Pro Max are top smartphones, but iPhone dominates in battery endurance according to tests by PhoneBuff, DXOMARK, and 01Lab. Samsung has improved with Snapdragon chip but still lags behind Apple. Charging time is faster for Samsung though.
The Autonomy Duel: Samsung Galaxy S23 Ultra vs iPhone 14 Pro Max
The Samsung Galaxy S23 Ultra and iPhone 14 Pro Max represent the best of the high-end smartphone market. Let’s focus today on a crucial point if you are still hesitating between the two products: autonomy.
Pro Max Dominance
For several years, the “Pro Max” models of the iPhone have dominated rankings of smartphones with best endurance. But competition has not said its last word, as proven by various autonomy tests that pit Samsung’s mobile against that of Apple.
Samsung Listened to Critics
In 2022, we highlighted disappointing autonomy in Galaxy S22 Ultra and its Exynos chip. Samsung seems to have heard critics by integrating this year in its Galaxy S23 Ultra a Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 chip… which works wonders.
Three Autonomy Tests Compared:
- The test subjected both devices to launching different applications and performing tasks with battery draining at each stage until they shut down completely (Galaxy had only %6 remaining).
French laboratory measures endurance score based on their own test procedures; The result for
Samsung is an impressive score compared to Apple’s performance.
- The testing demonstrated both cases where “the apple smartphone keeps comfortable lead.””
Lagging Behind but Not Ashamed .
In conclusion, even though two out three tests give advantage over I phone it remains champion because charging time cements strength for consumers who need maximum usage,
It should be noted however neither brand provides charger within box.
