It seems like most modern smartphones have relatively large batteries, especially if we look at the mid-range and flagship classes. The arrival of 5G and high refresh rate screens may have played a major role in this trend.

Nevertheless, we would like to know what is the smallest battery size you would like to settle for when buying a new phone. You can make your choice via the poll below and leave a comment if you want to elaborate.

Just to clear things up, assume that the new phone you’re getting is a mid-range or flagship phone rather than a low-end device. Finally, low-end smartphones often sacrifice features like high refresh rates and powerful processors (and even 5G in some cases). That means they tend to be more economical and can get away with much smaller batteries.

Given that some people are used to charging their phones every night, we can understand why you might be ok with a smaller battery. Additionally, today’s fast-charging technology often means you can be fully recharged in under an hour.

On the other hand, there are plenty of phones with huge batteries and blazing-fast charging speeds that give you the best of both worlds. Additionally, a larger battery means that degradation over time shouldn’t be as severe as a device with a small battery.
