There is nothing worse than getting half way through the day and hearing your smartphone warning you that it is about to run out of power. Those warning tones or flashing notification lights are often greeted by Battery Saver Mode kicking in and dulling the screen.

 

At this point it’s pretty clear that one five minute session on the internet is going drain the last reserves and from this point on your smartphone is just dead weight.

 

There is however a new breed of smartphones hitting the market with big batteries. So, let’s take a look at the best smartphones with high capacity batteries.
