According to GSM Arena’s tests, the Nokia N9 manages to play a whopping 8H and 40 minutes of video playback.

In comparison, I get about 5h with my N8. It has less pixels to push (640×360 vs 854×480) but it does have less battery life (1200mAh vs 1450mAh in N9).

For a bit of context:

  • Handset charged fully
  • looped standard definition Xvid video.
  • Brightness at 50%
  • Stopped when battery was at 10% (so it could have done a little more. They note that some phones turn off video player and don’t allow restarting. I’m not sure if N9 has this ‘feature’.

GSM Arena notes that the only thing beating it is the iPhone 4.
