Galaxy S23 Battery Couldn’t Surprise DxOMark Experts
Recently, the Samsung Galaxy S23 passed the screen and camera tests in DxOMark – and now the experts have also evaluated the autonomy of the smartphone. In general, he showed good results – but the battery capacity of only 3900 mAh naturally affected his final score.
The main consumers of charge in the Galaxy S23 are the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 processor and a 6.1-inch AMOLED display with a resolution of 1080×2340 pixels and a refresh rate of 120 Hz. Smartphone battery with a capacity of 3900 mAh is designed for charging with a maximum power of 25 W (PSU not included). The smartphone was tested in the 8/128 GB modification.
In mixed mode, the Galaxy S23 lasted two days on a single charge with moderate use. If we compare the autonomy indicators in specific applications, then the smartphone lasted the longest when launching social network clients and when used as a “dialer”. In other use cases, the S23 worked less, but still outperformed the Galaxy S22 and partially the iPhone 14, losing only one discipline to it.
The main disadvantages of the smartphone were poor autonomy when listening to music and a not always accurate battery indicator: for example, it showed 15.6% charge, while 20% was indicated in the settings. In terms of charging speed, the S23 also did not set records: it took 1 hour 39 minutes through the battery wire to 100%, and 2 hours 16 minutes through the air. As a result, the Galaxy S23 took sixteenth place in its price category and only eighty-third in the overall ranking.
