GSMArena feature lab: Introducing our new battery life test

You’d be surprised to know, battery life tests are the most time consuming and the most criticized articles that we do. And in the same time, they are of high interest to the readers. The previous iteration of our battery test required that we have the phone around for at least a week after the reviewing routine is over. It included many different tasks, which took quite a lot of time and meant that the tested devices couldn’t be used for anything else for days in a row (so that...

We go all technical about displays: introducing our brightness and contrast ratio tests

Display quality is climbing higher and higher on the priority list of everyone in the search for a new handset, so we thought it would only be fair if we give it more coverage in our reviews. That’s why we have just expanded the display section with another, more scientific test that should help you get a better impression of each unit.
