Once again it’s the boys of GSMarena those responsible for having faced the battery of the camera-phone of Samsung to the resistance and duration tests. Before getting into the subject, let’s remember that this device with an appearance that vaguely reminds us of the Samsung Galaxy S4 Mini, it has not only a powerful zoom in its camera that also has a 16 megapixel sensor Y xenon flash, but also has a 4.3 inch screen with 960 by 540 pixel resolution, dual-core processor ARM Cortex-A9 to 1.5 gigahertz, 1.5 gigabytes of RAM memory and an internal storage of 8 gigabytes.
As always when we bring you this type of test, remember that they determine how many hours the smartphone in question lasts in time of calls, surfing the internet or playing video before the battery is completely drained. Similarly, one last resistance test It will show us how many hours it will take for the device to drain the battery if every day we make a one-hour call and spend the same time surfing the Net and watching our favorite videos.
Starting with the battery life at talk time, that of Samsung Galaxy S4 Zoom it goes above the 15 and a half hours, a result that places him halfway between those obtained by the Samsung Galaxy s4 – just over 18 hours – and the Samsung Galaxy S4 Mini – 13 hours and 10 minutes -. Something that is not too strange if we take into account that the 2,330 milliamps / hour The battery capacity of the camera-phone is also among the capacity of the other two models already mentioned.
Focusing now on how long we can surf in the Internet until the battery of our Samsung Galaxy S4 Zoom, the tests give a result of 8 hours and 51 minutes autonomy which, without being a bad result, places it almost an hour below the Samsung Galaxy S4 Mini. In this sense and if we take into account that both models have the same screen SuperAMOLED of 4.3 inches, we will have to agree that the Qualcomm Snapdragon chipset of the reduced version of the Galaxy S4 is more efficient.
Finally, the battery life in continuous video playback arrives until exactly nine and a half hours. Once again this is an acceptable result on its own, but if we compare it with the more than 13 hours of life of a smaller battery such as that of the Samsung Galaxy S4 Mini, we once again realize the difference made by something that few people pay attention to, such as being equipped with one or the other chipset and which, in this case, translates into different video decoding hardware.
As for the battery of the Samsung Galaxy S4 Zoom, thanks to its larger capacity battery compared to the Mini version, it is in the resistance test. In it, the camera-phone has held 61 hours before needing to be plugged into the mains, for the 54 hours that the Samsung Galaxy S4 Mini endured. Remember that in this test the total number of hours of battery life is measured if we make a daily one-hour phone call, spend another 60 minutes a day surfing the Internet and spend the same time playing videos.
In short, the Samsung Galaxy S4 Zoom It has enough energy to carry out its mission with ease, which is none other than being a smartphone in which the most outstanding thing is the power and quality of its photographic section.
