Samsung Galaxy S23+ enters top 5 ultra-flagships in DxOMark battery tests
DxOMark Lab experts tested the battery of Samsung’s latest flagship Galaxy S23+ with a series of different tests. As a result, the smartphone showed excellent results and entered the top among ultra-flagships.
Recall that the Galaxy S23 + is powered by a 4700 mAh battery with support for 45 W charging. The company also equipped the flagship with a 6.6-inch OLED display with a resolution of 1080×2340 pixels and a refresh rate of 120 Hz, a Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 chip in conjunction with 8 GB of RAM and 256 GB of flash memory.
During tests to determine autonomy, charging operation and energy efficiency, experts identified the strengths and weaknesses of the smartphone. In particular, among the pluses was noted excellent autonomy when watching videos, low residual power consumption when the device is fully charged, but still connected to the network, as well as low discharge currents in general.
The downsides were average autonomy when listening to music, high residual power consumption and low energy efficiency of wireless charging. With moderate use of the Galaxy S23+ (4 hours a day), the battery life was 61 hours, and it took 85 minutes to fully charge the battery.
As a result, the Samsung Galaxy S23 + managed to score 134 points and take 20th place in the world ranking, and in the list of ultra-premium devices, the smartphone was in fourth position.
