The Galaxy S9 Plus and Galaxy S9 actual users were hoping for a better battery when Samsung released then in late February.
Info about the batteries
The battery of the Galaxy S9 Plus and Galaxy S9 did not change from the Galaxy S8 Plus and Galaxy S8 aka 3,500mAh and 3,000mAh as it was expected by the public of Samsung fans.
They got their expectations high because Galaxy S9 Plus and Galaxy S9 are equipped with Snapdragon 845 processor manufactured by Qualcomm in other countries and US. In other regions, Samsung offers their Galaxy phones with Exynos chips, even though Qualcomm’s was most tested.
The chip manufacturer company made a promise to their fans that their next chipset will be 30 percent more powerful than their previous 2017 Snapdragon 835 featured in Samsung Galaxy S8 Plus and S8.
Unfortunately, the Samsung Galaxy S9 had a less powerful battery than Galaxy S8 when made a comparison based on a test. The Samsung Galaxy S9 Plus, however, did better than Galaxy S8 Plus in the battery test with a difference of 4 percent. Contrary to that, Snapdragon 845 chip will make it be even better as the battery will not drown that easy.
How Galaxy S9 and S9 Plus did on the test
Four distinct Galaxy S9 Plus phones and other three distinct Galaxy S9s one being equipped with an Exynos processor was put through a video drain test. Some of these phones were purchased, and some were offered by Samsung. The tests needed to multiple times as their results were so different every time.
After the Galaxy batteries being tested, they came up with their average numbers and compared them to the predecessors of the phone. You need to take into consideration the fact that both S versions measure 5.8 inches and the Plus ones 6.2 inches, so there is no way of compromising the results because of the screen measure.
In a comparison to Galaxy S8, we can also see how many actual hours S9’s battery lasts.
However, it is in Samsung’s mind that buyers will be intrigued by a better battery life so the South Korean company is working on a better one for the upcoming Samsung Galaxy Note 9 which will be revealed at its Unpacked event from 9th of August. It is expected to receive a 4,000mAh one.
