Battery Life – PCMark
We then tested the Galaxy S8’s battery performance using PCMark. It basically ran the PCMark work tests until its battery capacity dropped to 20%.
This is amazing. The Samsung Galaxy S8 (Amazon | Lazada) has a relatively small 3,000 mAh battery, but it lasts as long as the Huawei Mate 9 (4,000 mAh) and the ASUS ZenFone 3 Ultra (4,600 mAh). In fact, it lasts more than twice as long as the HTC 10, which has the same battery capacity![adrotate banner=”5″]
Battery Recharging Performance
The Samsung Galaxy S8 comes with an adaptive fast charger with a power output of 15 W. Take a look at how fast it recharged the 3,000 mAh battery.
It took the Samsung Galaxy S8 (Amazon | Lazada) just 87 minutes (1 hour 27 minutes) to recharge its battery from 18% to 100%. This is a battery life : recharging ratio of 8.4 : 1 – a truly amazing performance.
The fastest recharging happened up to the 85% level. This took just 57 minutes. Then the recharging speed slowed down, and it took a further 30 minutes to top up the remaining 15%.
