Gone are the days when having a 3000mAh battery on a smartphone used to be ideal for most people. As, today, with the increase in processing power and improvements in graphics and other aspects of performance, a 3000mAh battery barely strikes the right balance for a full day of use. As a result, a large number of smartphone manufacturers started offering larger-capacity batteries on their smartphones.
For a lot of people, a battery is one of the deciding factors when purchasing a smartphone. So if you happen to belong to this category, here’s a list (in no particular order) for some of our best picks for smartphones with 5000mAh battery.
1. Samsung Galaxy M30
The Galaxy M30 launched in India a few months back. And it makes its place in this listicle with a mammoth 5000mAh battery inside. However, in our testing of the device, we did not find the smartphone to deliver the kind of battery life one would expect from a 5000mAh smartphone. But thankfully, the fast charging capability suffices the problem to a certain extent and claim to charge the smartphone for a couple of hours of use within 15–20 minutes.
Talking about other specifications, the M30 features a 6.4-inch Super AMOLED Infinity-U display, an Exynos 7904 processor, 4GB or 6GB of RAM, and 64GB or 128GB of internal storage. For optics, it sports a triple camera setup on the rear (13MP primary with f/1.9, 5MP ultra-wide with f/2.2, 5MP depth-sensor with f/2.2), and a 16MP camera with f/2.0 on the front.

So, essentially, among the two options, the M20 manages to keep an upper hand.
