Glaring contradictions in the "Verge Battery Test"
Here are two interesting bits from the DNA and GS3 reviews:
"The DNA lasted a meager four hours and 25 minutes in the Verge Battery Test, which cycles through a series of websites and high-res images with the screen at 65 percent brightness"
(Score give: 4)
"Battery life is about average for a high-end smartphone. On the Verge Battery Test, which cycles through a series of websites and high-res images at 65 percent brightness, the Galaxy S III lasted four hours and 12 minutes. The test is particularly taxing for an LTE device since the radio takes its toll on the battery. In more normal use, the handset lasted a full day of tweeting, browsing, watching movies and making phone calls, and if we paid attention to Verizon's pestering and joined Wi-Fi networks, it could last even a bit longer"

I have never really had many problems with The Verge scoring and reviewing system and outcomes, but this really makes me think twice about ever trusting their opinions again.
