The iPhone 11 Pro Max and its smaller siblings have been in the hands of consumers for nearly a week now, so we’re starting to get more and more comparisons showing them in action against comparable devices from competitors. Now there’s a new comparison between the iPhone 11 Pro Max’s battery life and the batteries in the Galaxy Note 10 Plus and Huawei Mate 30 Pro. Surprisingly, the iPhone 11 Pro Max beats out both devices in battery life although the other two devices have larger batteries.

The iPhone 11 Pro Max’s battery is 3,969 mAh, while the Mate 30 Pro has a 4,500 mAh battery, and the Galaxy Note 10 Plus has a 4,300 mAh battery. The iPhone 11 Pro Max is believed to have 4 GB of RAM powering its 6.5-inch display. However, the Mate 30 Pro has 8 GB of RAM running its 6.53-inch screen, while the Galaxy Note 10 Plus has an impressive 12 GB of RAM behind its 6.8-inch display.
YouTuber Mrwhosetheboss conducted the iPhone 11 Pro Max battery life test, which included running a variety of different apps and functions on each device simultaneously and then seeing which one lasted the longest. The test also included the smaller iPhone 11 and iPhone 11 Pro. It was quite a rigorous test which put the devices through much more than what the average user would do on an average day.
The iPhone 11 came in fifth place with five hours and two minutes, while the Galaxy Note 10 Plus lasted six hours and 31 minutes. The iPhone 11 Pro lasted six hours and 42 minutes. Then there’s a huge jump in the amount of time the batteries lasted. The Huawei Mate 30 Pro lasted an impressive 8 hours and 13 minutes, coming in second place, while the iPhone 11 Pro Max’s battery life lasted an even more amazing 8 hours and 32 minutes.
