    You can get the battery replaced. Though expect sending it to Samsung could be expensive. There is sure to be a fella locally that can replace it. Just an option though the S8 maybe never met your 15hrs anyway?

    I got about 4 hours SoT from my S8, just with browsing. Nice phone, but disappointing battery. I used to have to top mine up twice a day, just in case the battery fell too low when I needed it.

    You've not had a Lenovo P2 then ☺️
    Always topped the battery tests.

    I think you should be looking at the Chinese market,some of their phones have huge batteries

    What do you use your phone for mostly? a quick search on GSMARENA (am I allowed to say it?) and filtering phones with battery over 4500mah should give you some good options. I use a P20 Pro, which has 4000mah and usually charge it every 2 days but depends very much on the usage I guess.

    I'm in the process of replacing mine at the moment but trying to find a similar priced phone (£200) that has comparible spec and battery is im possible. I'm already in the process of sending back my week old Xiaomi Redmi Note 7 :(

    Plug it into the mains?

    Buy one of those portable power bricks you see couriers use ?

    Saw one for like £10 reduced from £150 ish early this year on an outdoor website
    Might be worth a look

    I also recommend the moto g7 power.

    I have one and...

    I have ranted on about the moto g7 power in the past on this forum,

    You can get 14-15.5 screen on time easy with the moto g7 power, the reason why i recommend is because of the battery life.

    But i do not think you can replace the battery.

    The moto g7 power is all about battery life and for under £200 it is hard to beat, it is one of those smartphones that has among one of the best longest battery life's you can get for a smart phone.

    I don't know what else but you can get 14 or more hours of moderate and hard use with the moto g7 power with screen on time.

    Give the moto g7 power a look into.
