    One thing Apple has to get better at is putting more battery into it's phones.

    I am a day to day Apple user, in terms of my phone (8 Plus), Macbook and iPad. I also have a Note 8 that I will use periodically when I want to switch things up.

    Reading this article, I was left to think the iPhone XS Max battery is 3174 mAh while the Note 9 is 4000 mAh. That's a lot more battery, heck the S9+ is 3500 mAh and the S9 is close to the XS Max at 3000 mAh.

    Just a thought, imagine how good the batteries really could be? I know iOS is way more efficient so battery goes a lot further however the point of the post is to think about just how long our batteries could last if they were level in terms of the mAh they are putting in our phones.

    Perhaps the iPhone is simply more efficient, and doesn't need the big specs. I know that's the case with RAM. The iPhone is not an Android device. Comparing specs is like Apples and Oranges.

    But there is a direct correlation to more battery life and a larger battery. I think that's simply the OPs point.

    That may be so, but for Apple it’s also about aesthetics and the added weight that comes with a larger battery.
    I don’t think that Apple hasn’t looked into this and did some research before they decided on the current battery capacity per device.

    Yes I completely agree

    "The iPhone 8 Plus will have a 2,675mAh battery, compared to the iPhone 7 Plus' 2,900mAh battery."

    The iPhone 8 Plus lasts all day and then some and only has a 2675mAh battery. Power efficiency of the OS and phone hardware are more important than just a big battery.

    I'm sure the XS Max battery will be just fine... (when mine finally gets here). But I understand the thought. How many iPhone users would sacrifice some weight and a slightly thicker phone if Apple ever decided to put like a 3800-4000mah battery in - coupled with the super-efficiency the hardware and IOS provide? I would guarantee it'd outsell the rest of the lineup if they ever did have an 'endurance' model.

    Has long a I can get a full days worth of battery life and and wake up the next day on 10-20% battery left then I’m more than happy. Bigger battery isn’t always going to get you better battery life. Optimisation is key.

    Oh I agree, battery life will be fine but the point I was getting at was with the efficiency of iOS and the ability to have a bigger battery in the phone just think of how much more SOT we could get before having to charge. That's all.

    Note 9 has a 4000 mAh battery but at the same time weighs less. It's doable.

    I mean yeah I get it but I don't think it's truly an issue. You could always play the "what if" game.

    The battery stats are a little misleading. The total screen on time it lists includes the time I used the device while it was charging too. Any way to see just straight battery usage?

    I am not sure to be honest. I don’t use my phone while it’s charging, well 99 percent of the time. Good question though.

    When has comparing Apple products to the competition spec to spec ever been a true comparison of actual performance? I remember working at Circuit City 20 years ago and having customers try to argue that PCs were better than Macs because they had more RAM and faster processors.
    Let's compare benchmarks.

    That is an absolutely valid question. iPhones are not spec sheet warriors when you line em up with Androids but in daily use, they run neck to neck.

    Exactly. The cement truck I passed on the road yesterday must be faster because it has a bigger engine, right?
    By the way, I'm adding "spec sheet warrior" to my everyday vocabulary.

    The iPhone has always had smaller battery capacities compared to it's Android competition devices and has ALWAYS performed better in both standby and usage.

    I think that says a lot about their software management

    iOS is significantly more efficient. It helps that the chipset and the rest of the phone hardware are designed for iOS.

    I don’t know if anyone has posted this video yet, but this guy did a battery drain test of several phones against each other. The iPhone XS Max won with the most battery life even compared to the 4,000mAh battery found in the note 9 despite only having a 3179mAh battery.

    This is awesome! iOS is incredibly efficient, the whole point of the thread was not to spec vs spec or compare battery life of devices. It was to say if Samsung can fit a 4000 mAh battery into the Note 9, Apple can fit one into an XS Max and doing so would give users better battery life and longer SOT between charges. That is the one and only purpose to the thread.
