Motorola Droid X tops Android battery test

Motorola Droid X has best battery life

This item is excerpted from Thursday’s App Industry Report on Appolicious.

If there’s a bugaboo that drives every smartphone owner nuts, it’s battery life. No smartphone holds a charge for very long, particularly when compared to mobile phones designed primarily to, gasp, just make calls.

Still, if battery life is a key consideration when buying a new smartphone (and it should be), how do various models stack up? Laptop Magazine tested a crop of the latest Android smartphones and determined that the Motorola Droid X is the best. The worst: the HTC Incredible, while the superior-screened line-up of new Samsung phones were close to the bottom.

The HTC Droid Incredible managed an average of only 4 hours and 33 minutes, compared to the Droid X’s 7 hours and 42 minutes of endurance, Laptop Magazine noted. That’s a 3-hour difference, a pretty big deal and a strong endorsement for what Motorola has done with Android smartphones.

“Motorola’s doing something right: Both the Droid 2 and the Droid X lasted much longer than competing devices from Samsung and HTC,” the story notes.

The chart compares 8 Android smartphones, including the new Dell Streak.
