The compact problem! How long does the Galaxy S22 battery last?

We set aside a day of testing (7:45h total runtime) to check the actual battery capacity of the Samsung Galaxy S22, separating the results into several steps. Some base settings are standardized across all tests to have a better measurement of the result, namely: screen brightness from 250 to 300 lumens, automatic refresh rate and vibration at the lowest possible intensity.

The test uses manual actions to change applications at each new step, in addition to taking advantage of Robotnik, a robotic arm built by the programming team at Oficina da Net to assist in steps that require screen scrolling or other actions for long periods of time. .

Important you know! O Oficina da Net battery test it’s not scientific. However, we were able to repeat the same test on all cell phones that pass through here. In this way, we are able to determine if one smartphone has better battery performance than the other.

Galaxy S22 battery test

How long can the cell phone keep the screen on in our test circuit, how long does it take to charge the battery using the product’s original charger and cables? All these questions are now answered.

Take a shortcut:

Test 1: Browsing in Chrome

The test consists of automatic navigation through our site through a url of its own for the activity. These are controlled pages, which automatically scroll after a period of time, simulating the use of a person. The Galaxy S22 had a 1% drain at the end of this stage, being approximately 407mAh of the device’s total 3700mAh.

Test 2: Use of Social Networks – Instagram

The test consists of automatic navigation through Instagram Reels through a robot arm that scrolls through videos every 15 seconds. The robot, kindly nicknamed Robotnik, was developed here at Oficina da Net, exclusively to assist in battery tests. The Galaxy S22 had a 10% drain at the end of this stage, being 370mAh of the device’s total 3700mAh.

Test 3: Camera usage

The camera test consists of recording an hour-long video in FULL HD 30 FPS, in 16:9 format. Galaxy S22 had a drainage of 24% at the end of this stage, being 888mAh of the total 3700mAh of the device.

Test 4: Watch Youtube

The test consists of playing a personalized playlist (always the same videos) from the Oficina Da Net channel in the best possible quality (1080p 60fps) and in full screen. The Galaxy S22 had a 39% drain at the end of this stage, being 1,443mAh of the device’s total 3700mAh.

Test 5: Games – Stack Ball

The test consists of running the game on the home screen, with the vibration on and without making any movements. The Galaxy S22 had a 9% drain at the end of this stage, being 333mAh of the device’s total 3700mAh.

Test 6: AnTuTu Benchmark stress

The test consists of running the AnTuTu Benchmark application stress test. The Galaxy S22 consumed 7%, about 259mAh of the total battery. This is one of the heaviest tests, it serves to try to drain the battery as much as possible. This is where the S22 ended its battery.

Test 7: Stand By

The Stand By test was not performed.

reload speed

Galaxy S22 took 1:35h to charge from 0 to 100% using a non-original 25W charger.

test completion

The Galaxy S22 phone, with a 3700mAh battery, consumed 100% of full charge before finishing the test. The Galaxy S22 is able to maintain 7h05min of screen in heavy use. In the publication of this article, he takes the 34th place in our battery ranking, out of the 37 already analyzed. This is one of the problems of compact smartphones, their energy capacity is not the best. You can notice in the tests that it drained the battery quickly, towards the end, it reduced the capacity and saved energy.
