I tend to use my phone as almost a mini-laptop. What that means is, I use a lot of data whether it's web browsing, looking at funny pictures, streaming music/videos, using Skype, etc.
On my previous phone (an iPhone), intense data usage can drain my battery at a rate as fast as 20%/hour. This means that I can only use my phone for 5 hours.
Thus, I am looking for recommendations for a functionally high end Android phone with emphasis on battery life.
More specifically, it should:
- Run any reasonably programmed Android app/games without any noticeable slow down.
- Fits in my pocket,
- In fact, I think the iPhone 6 is too big. I actually prefer a size smaller than that. But as long as it can fit in my pocket I'm fine.
- Can sustain for as long as possible (preferably 24 hour) under intense data usage.
- Is actually a phone. (i.e. can make calls, send text, etc.)
Anything else is a bonus, but do please let me know if there are any major caveats. (e.g. if the phone typically dies in 1 month, let me know about that..)
