Oppo N3 battery life test

Oppo N3 is surely a very interesting smartphone with motorized 206-degree rotating camera, a worthy successor of the Oppo N1 cameraphone. The N3 isn’t all about its camera, though, as it is also a real beast when it comes to features and performance.

Our review is welcoming readers at our homepage, and today we are ready to share with you our complete battery life impressions. Note that the Oppo N3 is in fact a dual-SIM capable smartphone, so we’ve naturally put its battery in charge of two SIM standbys and here comes our findings.

Even though the Oppo N3 is dual SIM-enabled, it isn’t capable of dual-call. This means while one of the SIMs is in a call, the other one stays off. Thus whether you are using one of two SIM cards, the 3G call test endurance stays the same. The Oppo N3 did above average keeping us in a 3G call for 14 hours and few minutes.

Talk time

  • Galaxy Tab Pro 10.1 LTE 46:44h

  • Huawei Ascend P6 14:17h

  • Motorola Moto G 4G 14:17h

  • Oppo Find 5 14:17h

  • LG Nexus 4 E960 14:17h

  • Nokia Lumia Icon 14:15h

  • Oppo N3 14:14h

  • Motorola Moto X 14:06h

  • Motorola Moto G 13:41h

  • HTC One 13:38h

  • Huawei Ascend P7 13:36h

  • Nokia Lumia 520 13:33h

  • Pantech Burst 4:46h

Such a big and crisp 5.5″ display is surely very comfy for web browsing and while the Oppo N3 didn’t do great, it still offered us 8 hours of continuous web browsing on a single charge.

Web time

  • Huawei Ascend Mate2 4G 16:41h

  • Asus PadFone 2 8:20h

  • Nokia Lumia 810 8:20h

  • Samsung Galaxy Mega 6.3 I9200 8:17h

  • Huawei Ascend Mate 8:17h

  • Motorola Moto X 8:17h

  • Oppo N3 8:16h

  • HTC One mini 8:12h

  • Xiaomi Mi 3 8:04h

  • Nokia Lumia 610 8:01h

  • HTC One X+ 7:56h

  • Motorola Nexus 6 7:54h

  • Samsung Galaxy Nexus I9250 3:01h

Finally, the looped video playback turned out quite decent – the Oppo N3 packed enough juice to play our video sample for almost 10 hours before its battery dropped down to the critical 10%. This should be enough for 6 full-length movies in those long flights.

Video time

  • LG G Flex 19:57h

  • Nokia Lumia 630 10:00h

  • Samsung Galaxy Express I8730 10:00h

  • LG G3 9:57h

  • Sony Xperia T3 9:56h

  • Nokia 808 PureView 9:53h

  • Oppo N3 9:49h

  • Alcatel Hero 9:49h

  • Sony Xperia M 9:49h

  • Samsung I8530 Galaxy Beam 9:42h

  • Samsung Rugby Smart I847 9:34h

  • Meizu MX4 9:31h

  • Nokia Lumia 710 3:27h

Our proprietary battery life test resulted in an endurance rating of 64 hours of mixed use – that’s how long you can expect the phone to last on a single charge if you do an hour each of calling, surfing the web and watching video a day.

Our proprietary score also includes a standby battery draw test, which is not featured in our test scorecard but is calculated in the total endurance rating. We’ve tested the Oppo N3 on dual-SIM standby with both SIM slots occupied. It did well (about 250 hours or 10 days), which means if you are using just one SIM card you should be able to add 3-5 hours to the final endurance rating (up to 69h).

Our battery testing procedure is described in detail in case you want to learn more about it.
