Apple iPhone 13 Pro Max still the battery champ in spite of 120 Hz display

The iPhone 13 Pro Max may only have a 4325 mAh battery but it still provides better battery life than Android smartphones with up to 6000 mAh batteries. This is particularly noteworthy considering Apple finally equipped the device with a 120 Hz display like its Android counterparts.

Starting with the iPhone 11 Pro Max, Apple has dominated smartphone endurance tests, handily outperforming its Android counterparts despite significant battery capacity disadvantages. It appears that trend continues with the iPhone 13 Pro Max, even though it finally features a 120 Hz display.

As revealed by tipster Ice Universe on Twitter, results published on Chinese social media platform Weibo show the iPhone 13 Pro Max edging out phones like the Redmi K40 and Mi 10S in battery endurance tests. The Mi 10S, for example, sports a 4780 mAh battery and a 90 Hz display, versus the iPhone 13 Pro Max's 4325 mAh battery and 120 Hz display. Phones like the Mi 11 Pro, Redmi Note 10 Pro, Asus ROG5 with much bigger batteries also finished way below the iPhone 13 Pro Max.

This isn't surprising, of course, as the combination of Apple's efficiency-focused software, the TSMC-made A15 Bionic, and the LTPO displays on the iPhone 13 Pro models essentially promise game-winning performance. It also helps that Apple chose to equip the phones with bigger batteries to counteract the higher power draw of its 120 Hz panels.  For yet another year, Android phones will boast of the biggest batteries, while still falling behind in real-world endurance metrics.

Buy the iPhone 13 Pro Max on Amazon.

I like tech, simple as. Half the time, you can catch me writing snarky sales copy. The rest of the time, I'm either keeping readers abreast with the latest happenings in the mobile tech world or watching football. I worked as both a journo and freelance content writer for a couple of years before joining the Notebookcheck team in 2017. Feel free to shoot me some questions on Twitter or Reddit if it so tickles thine fancy.
