Huawei Mate 9 beats competitors with efficient battery
The Morlab Communications Laboratory assessed the amount of power consumed during five minutes of continuous play
Huawei Consumer Business Group has revealed that its Mate 9 device has outperformed competing smartphones for the most efficient consumption of battery whilst in use.
The battery was tested at Morlab Communications Laboratory in Shenzhen, China, where experts measured the percentage of battery used when playing music for five consecutive minutes. The Mate 9 was tested along with four other smartphones - Apple's iPhone 7 Plus, the Sony XPERIA Z5 Premium Dual, LG's V20 and the Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge.
The devices were chosen based on market price, screen size and battery capacity and tested in controlled conditions.
During the test, each of the five devices used the native music playing application, was set to medium volume levels on headsets and hosted on the same frequency band. Measures were also taken to protect the results from uncontrolled third party influences.
David Wang, UAE country manager said: "The results reinforce Huawei's Mate 9 as a standard-setting performance device. Innovation is at the core of everything we do at Huawei. We endeavour to offer devices that boast impressive features and when put to the ultimate test, outperform our competitors.
"We're incredibly proud of our award winning performance and this achievement is a testament to Huawei's dedication for research and development and to the Mate 9's unrivalled performance."
