Battery Life: S5 vs. Note3


Apr 30, 2014, 8:43 AM
Does anyone have any first-hand experience with comparing the battery life between the Note3 and the Galaxy S5?

I'd really appreciate it. I'm trying to decide between the 2 phones since I need to upgrade now (my S4 screen just died).

I've owned both (currently the s5) and battery life on the note 3 will be a bit better (not a lot better, just a little) but the trade off is the note is a VERY LARGE phone and while its easy to see that off hand, its another to live with proved to be too big for me.

Appreciate your help! It's good to know this type of info.

While I don't have a GS5, I do have a Note 3. Before I bought the phone, I feared the size would be barely manageable. But it didn't take much use at all to realize that the device was well inside the range of what I considered easy to use. The screen is gorgeous, and I have found the extra size makes a huge difference, especially when working with text. Making posts to sites like this one are a breeze, while they were very cumbersome and discombobulating on my previous device, the Galaxy S II.

Bottom line. I recommend you try the device for yourself and then make up your mind about the size.

Ive actually had the opposite experience. My old note 3 would die in like 6 hours, vs my new s5 that lasts the whole day.
