If you haven’t figured it out by now, the iPhone 11 Pro Max has insane battery life. We’ve seen the smartphone outlast its Android rivals and now PhoneBuff has shared its own battery test, pitting the iPhone 11 Pro Max against the Samsung Galaxy Note 10+.
PhoneBuff had each smartphone’s display set at 200 nits brightness, then used apps like you would in real life.
In the standby test of 16 hours, the iPhone 11 Pro Max battery only dropped 6%, versus a 10% drop on the Galaxy Note 10+. Another test played one hour of gaming on both phones, with the iPhone still holding strong.
A navigation test was used in Google Maps and also a music test in Spotify, then a Snapchat test. The latter is usually where smartphones tested by PhoneBuff would die and no longer have power.
But the iPhone 11 Pro Max was the only phone ever to make it to this app cycle test, able to perform the loop for one hour and 15 minutes.
In total, the iPhone 11 Pro Max had screen time of 11 hours and 5 minutes, versus 9 hours and 3 minutes for the Galaxy Note 10+.
Standby time was the same for both phones, but the total time of usage for the iPhone 11 Pro Max was 27 hours and 5 minutes, while the Galaxy Note 10+ was at 25 hours and 3 minutes.

In our own battery life observations with the iPhone 11 Pro Max, it’s been nothing short of impressive. Every night before charging, we’re left with 55-60% battery life or more, whereas with the iPhone XS Max, we’d be at 40% or below.
Last week, Consumer Reports said the iPhone 11 Pro Max topped its rankings for the smartphone with the best battery life.
