iPhone SE 2020 battery life is a major letdown

The iPhone SE 2020 has a lot of things to recommend it for its $399 price, including a fast A13 Bionic processor, vibrant display and very good cameras. But battery life is not one of the new phone’s strengths.

In fact, based on our battery test, the iPhone SE’s 1,821 mAh battery trails every modern iPhone by a significant margin — and its top Android phone competitor by nearly 3 hours. Here’s how the new iPhone SE stacks up.

  1. I just bought this phone last week , not running any Apps, no web surfing, no you tube just talking on the phone and I'm only getting 3-4 hours till the battery is dead from a full charge !!!! Not good at all.

  2. This is the most idiotic video ive seen, 9 hours 18 minutes is amazing. And thats using it 9 hours 18 minutes STRAIGHT IN A ROW, no one really does that. The truth is that the 1821 mAh battery lasts longer than many 3000 mAh batteries

  3. I’d you’re using your phone for more than 3-4 hours a day, you need to find another hobby… or get a life. The SE’s battery is more than enough. Get your face out of your phone and live your life.

  4. "On our battery test, we have each phone surf the web continuously over a cellular connection (4G or 5G) at 150 nits of screen brightness until the phone runs out of power. The phone loads a new site every 30 seconds. This test is not designed to mimic real-world use but it does allow us to compare relative endurance across multiple handsets." from their page. Also at this brightness don't expect outdoor visibility. Its just screen on test with network and translate 4.7" with low resolution requires smaller battery and larger screen with more resolution requires larger battery, day to day operation is a different story

  5. What??? 9 hrs is impressive for that kind of sized battery 🤦🏻‍♂️. How’s it a letdown. It’s a small device so don’t expect phenomenal battery. It’s good for what it is I’d say.
