Which? mobile phone testing
In our rigorous lab assessment we test each phone to destruction. To check that they can survive everything life can throw at them we rotate them in a wooden drum to simulate being dropped repeatedly and pour water over them in a rain test.
We check the sound quality on calls, how well they can pick up a signal and record the battery life in use and on stand by. We assess the quality of the keyboard and display, and reproduce a range of everyday tasks to ensure they’re easy to use.
And because phones can now do so much more than just make calls we also examine their entertainment features, from the speed of their web browser to the shutter delay on their camera.
