Affordable Mobile Phones With The Biggest Batteries

ZESA electricity outages and load-shedding are still a big problem in Zimbabwe, so how long a battery phone lasts is very important. Worse, there are a lot of new residential suburbs where house owners do not have electricity installed at all.

Pindula has compiled a list of phones with the biggest batteries available here in Zimbabwe.

It is important to know however that having the biggest capacity battery does not automatically mean the longest-lasting battery. The battery life is affected by a lot of things. A phone may have a very big battery mAh but poor power management. With Samsungs, for example, the Galaxy S23 Ultra has the same 5,000 mAh size battery as Galaxy S22 Ultra, but it lasts much longer because of its more power-efficient Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 processor.

It is also common for budget mobile phones, such as itel and Tecno, to have higher battery-size lots of inbuilt apps always running that cannot be turned off. This uses more battery.
