The Galaxy S21 Ultra is the best phone you can buy for long battery life

Some of the best Android phones also have the best battery life. What good is your phone if the battery dies too soon? If you use your phone hard and don't have the option to charge throughout the day, battery life is your number one priority when shopping for your next phone. Thankfully, several great options focus on battery life and won't give up halfway through the day — including the Galaxy S21 Ultra as our top overall pick.

Our pick

Samsung Galaxy S21 Ultra 5G - Smartphone

Staff Pick

Samsung took a modest step forward in 2021, except when it comes to the Galaxy S21 Ultra. Samsung pulled out all the stops on its S21 superphone with a 10x optical Zoom, QHD+ 120 Hz screen, and 4,500 mAh battery. Of course, if you want this phone to be a battery champ, you can ratchet down the refresh rate to 60Hz and FHD+ resolution. But overall, it's hard to go wrong with the best of the best Samsung has to offer.

Is it a phone?

Asus ROG Phone 5 SD888 5G 256GB

ASUS is pulling out all the stops with its latest Republic of Gamers phone, the ROG phone 5. This isn't the most tricked-out version of the ROG Phone 5 Ultimate. This phone has a lot to offer, including a 6,000 mAh battery, Snapdragon 888, 8GB of RAM, and more. Gaming phones are known for their big batteries, and this one is no exception.

Everyone's a fan

Samsung Galaxy S20 FE G780F 128GB

The Samsung Galaxy S20 FE was one of Samsung's best offerings of 2020. It cuts all the right corners to give you great performance, camera, and battery. The phone is a battery champion that will last multiple days if you let it. The fact that it's one small step short of a full-blown flagship is a bonus.

Google's finest

Google Pixel 5a - Smartphone

The Google Pixel 5a offers the best of Google at a more accessible price point. You get a very clean Android experience, fast updates, and the latest version of Android. In addition, the Pixel 5a is now water-resistant, and best of all, it has the largest battery ever in a Pixel phone at 4,680mAh.

Affordable flagship

OnePlus 9 - Android Smartphone

The OnePlus 9 is a fantastic all-around smartphone. It's super-fast, has a great display, and has reliable Hasselblad-tuned cameras. Its 4,500 mAh battery allows for top-notch endurance throughout your days of use, and when it comes time to charge up, the Warp Charge 65T system gets you from 0-100% in about half an hour.

Bonkers battery capacity

TCL 20 Pro

Like the Pixel 5a, the TCL 20 Pro delivers a flagship-quality experience at a mid-range price point. With a gorgeous design, breathtaking display, and solid performance, you'll feel confident putting this phone up against devices hundreds of dollars more expensive. Plus, its 4,500mAh battery and Qualcomm 3.0 fast charging will keep you going for hours upon hours.

Google's best value

Google Pixel 4a - New Unlocked Android Smartphone

If you want the best Google experience, but you're on a tighter budget (and you don't care about 5G), the Pixel 4a is a great pick. It's not the most powerful, but it runs silky smooth. It's available with 6GB of RAM and 128GB of storage and comes in Just Black and Barely Blue. The fingerprint sensor on the back of the phone is a little old-school, but the screen size is perfect for one-handed use, and the phone just lasts and lasts.

Three-day phone

Moto G Power (2021) - Gray

You don't have to spend a ton to get great battery life, and the Moto G Power (2021) shows us why. Simple software and limited hardware features pair well with a 5,000 mAh battery, and the result is a phone that can last up to three days on a single charge. Yes, you read that right — three days.

For international shoppers

Xiaomi Mi 11 Ultra - Ceramic Black

Our last pick is for those reading this that don't live in the U.S. The Xiaomi Mi 11 Ultra is a rock-solid handset in more ways than one, with battery life being one of its strongest aspects. You get a huge 5,000 mAh battery that allows for well over a day of use, along with 67W wired and wireless fast charging when it does finally die.

Have your phone last all day

Phones with amazing battery life are becoming more and more common, but none represent the class better than the Galaxy S21 Ultra. Not only is this phone a powerhouse with the best camera setup you can buy on a phone today, but it has a 4,500 mAh battery under the hood powering it all. So with light to moderate usage, you could forget to plug this phone in for a day, and you'd still have enough left in the tank to get through dinner the next day.

If you prefer a cleaner experience, The Google Pixel 5a is a great choice. Right off the bat, you get the largest-capacity battery ever in a Pixel phone at 4,680 mAh, and when it's paired with the Snapdragon 765G, which sips battery power, the phone can last for days. That's a relief considering Google's past performance in that category.

If you're more budget-conscious, we have the Moto G Power. It doesn't have all the bells and whistles found on the other phones showcased here, but you do get three-day battery life in a very affordable package.
