Their usual tests looking into battery performance on a new device have been conducted and concentrate on four aspects, Talk Time, 3G Browsing, WiFi Browsing, and Video Playback. This provides a good way of checking out how battery life of the OnePlus 2 stands up against other handsets.

Moving on to 3G Browsing the OnePlus 2 doesn’t fare so well as shown in the image above. It’s in the latter half of the table with a time of 4 hours, and this time the joint top spot is taken by the Xiaomi Mi4 and iPhone 6 Plus on 6 hours and 15 minutes. The Galaxy S6 managed 4 hours and 46 minutes, and in this category the OnePlus 2 was outperformed by the OnePlus One that achieved 5 hours and 33 minutes.

It was a similar story for WiFi Browsing, with the OnePlus 2 again in the bottom half of the table on a time of exactly 5 hours, just below the Galaxy S6 with 5 hours and 53 minutes. Once more the OnePlus One managed a better result, this time on 6 hours and 15 minutes. There was a tie for the top position again, with the iPhone 6 Plus and Xiaomi Mi4 both achieving 9 hours and 5 minutes.

The final category was for Video Playback, with the OnePlus 2 not faring so well again as shown in the image below. It attained a time of 7 hours and 41 minutes and was once again outstripped by the OnePlus One on 9 hours and 5 minutes. The Galaxy S6 was in second place on 11 hours and 7 minutes while the winner was the iPhone 6 Plus with a notable time of 20 hours. This time the Xiaomi Mi4 came last with 6 hours and 39 minutes.
