Have your phone last all day

Phones with amazing battery life are now the norm as Qualcomm and MediaTek deliver efficient chipsets that don't consume too much battery. This is clearly evident with the Galaxy S23 Ultra; the phone has all the features you could ask for in a flagship, and the 5000mAh battery lasts well over a day even with heavy use. Basically, it is one of the best Android phones available today. 

If you're not looking for a flagship, the Pixel 7a is the obvious choice to consider. Google has managed to deliver the best value in the mid-range category, offering a standout package with great hardware, stunning cameras, modern design, and clean software with fast updates. And the battery life is stellar as well. 

Of course, if you're partial to Samsung, the Galaxy A54 continues to deliver in this area, giving you all the features on a budget.
