There’s no shortage of tablets in the market, catering different price points. But, which tablet in the market offers the best battery life?
According to a recent study done by Which? Tech Daily, iPad Air tops the list of tablets when it comes to battery life, offering users with improved battery timing when it comes to browsing the internet and watching video.
It’s not only the iPad Air, Apple tablets including the iPad Mini with Retina and iPad 2 offers better battery life compared to the competition when it comes to web browsing. For videos, Amazon Kindle Fire HDX 8.9 and Google Nexus 7 (2013) managed to grab the second and third spot respectively.
A fully charged iPad Air lasted 658 minutes on web browsing followed by iPad Mini with retina at 614 minutes and iPad 2 managed to get a 590 minutes battery time on internet usage. For the video test, Apple iPad Air offered 777 minutes of battery life, followed by Kindle Fire HDX 8.9 with 714 minutes and Google Nexus 7 (2013) with 669 minutes.
The iPad Air, iPad mini with Retina display and iPad 2 all performed better than the Android alternatives for web browsing. On a full tank, Apple’s iPad Air will last for 658 minutes of web-browsing – beating the 483 minutes offered by the longest-lasting Android tablet we tested, Samsung’s Galaxy Note 10.1 (2014 edition). Likewise, the iPad mini with Retina display features an impressive 614 minutes of internet usage, while Apple’s three year old iPad 2 managed a sterling 590 minutes.
The iPad Air proved victorious in this test as well, offering 777 minutes of battery life – that’s enough to watch the entire extended Lord of the Rings trilogy in one sitting. Apple didn’t achieve quite the same dominance in this testing category however, with Amazon’s Kindle Fire HDX 8.9 (714 minutes) finishing in second place and the Google Nexus 7 (669 minutes) mustering third position.
So, what do you think about these results. Does these tests get rid of any confusion for the potential buyers who care more about the battery life of the tablets?
