I can go ahead and say it. 4000mAH batteries should be minimum for all Android phones.
Smartphones are usually one of the few tech products that we use the most in our daily lives. Great battery life is a key selling point for them if they indeed have huge batteries.
Battery life is a balance of software optimization and the battery capacity. In most cases, the bigger the battery, the better the battery life.
From a manufacturers perspective, they budget internal space to see what battery pack they can squeeze into. They also play this delicate balance based on the eventual price of the phone.
This is why we used to see bigger batteries in more expensive phones and smaller ones in cheaper phones.
However, we are living in a situation where we can find huge batteries at almost any price point. On Android, a battery pack above 4000mAh is considered big. Flagship phones have it, mid-range phones have it and budget phones have it.
I have compiled a list of budget smartphones that feature a 4000mAh battery or greater and on Android. Here are some that were released either in 2018 or 2019 that fit this criteria. You can click on the links provided if you want to check out more information about them.
