The Galaxy S IV came out with impressive specs, basically everything from the Galaxy S3 was taken to an extreme level, hopefully a better level. This time we are going to review the battery. We know from the specifications of the device that the Galaxy S IV has a 2600 mAh battery, a huge one I could say. Take this compared to the 2100 mAh battery of the Galaxy S3. This should increase the battery life of the device with 20%. There is no official data about how long the Galaxy S4 battery actually lasts as you cannot put your hand on a device just yet. But we can expect some really impressive numbers thanks to the advances made in processor usage and thanks to the large Amperage of the battery. However, the Galaxy S3 does have a large number of new features such as Smart Pause, Air view and so on, and those type of features are using sensors that no doubt will drain the battery faster. Maybe that's why Samsung felt the need to increase the battery power this time. Anyway we can say that the Galaxy S IV will easily last 1 entire day with data on, location, and several hours of usage and all these new features turned on. I'm pretty confident in Samsung's decision on the battery this time.
