Interestingly, the Sony Xperia Z3 actually came out on top in PhoneArena’s own benchmark and on the PCMark benchmark, while finishing second in the Geekbench 3 test. This shouldn’t be too surprising since the device comes with a 3,100 mAh battery, although it still managed to beat out the Galaxy Note 4 and its larger 3,200mAh battery in overall performance.

Speaking of the Note 4, both it and the Galaxy S6 also fared well in the three tests surveyed and delivered impressive battery performance. On the lower end of the spectrum, Apple’s iPhone 6 delivered the worst overall performance, which isn’t too surprising given that it has only a 1,810 mAh battery while all other devices surveyed had batteries of 2,550mAh or higher. Better battery life has been something iPhone fans have been requesting for a while now but it seems Apple would rather keep pushing to make their devices thinner instead of making them thicker with bigger batteries.
