Nokia Lumia Icon battery life tests have disappointing results

GSMArena have posted the result of their comprehensive battery test of the Nokia Lumia Icon. The handset has a 2420 mAh battery, but according to GSMArena performed rather poorly, managing only 14h:15 min of 3G talk time and 5h:17 of web browsing. This compares to the Nokia Lumia 1520’s outstanding performance from its 3400 mAh battery, which is only 50% bigger.

Earlier this year, Nokia announced the Lumia Icon, a handset that is an exclusive for Verizon (although some say that an international variant in the form of the Lumia 930 could be on its way). For those unfamiliar, the Lumia Icon is essentially a smaller version of the Lumia 1520 with a more manageable 5-inch display versus the Lumia 1520’s 6-inch. Essentially this has the power of the Lumia 1520 packed into a smaller body for those who prefer something not of the phablet variety. However to make the device smaller, Nokia did have to make a couple of concessions, one of which was putting a smaller 2,420mAh battery inside versus the Lumia 1520’s 3,400mAh.
