Smartphones are a must for most people but their short battery life is certainly something we could live without.

A recent report by the publication Consumer Reports unveiled the five smartphones that last the longest.

But be warned, not a single iPhone model has made the top five and some devices are over two years old. The researchers, who tested the transmission of cellular signals, display and processor activity, emphasized that a large battery capacity is not always synonymous with durability.
