Since I am trying to compare apples to apples
Before comparing the performance of these two devices, I made sure only music is the activity on these devices. On the Android, disabled all services, including all the network (2G / 3G) & Connectivity (Wi-Fi / GPS) .
Smart phone with 2100 mAh battery lasted about 36 horus and IPOD went more than 60 hours. Since I don't have the power rating of IPOD, I am not sure what battery they have put in there.
What iPod? 60 hours sounds like a lot. My iPod Classic lasts about 32 hours, and Apple rates the iPod Touch 5 at 40 hours of continuous playback time with a fully charged battery.
32 hours - I wish. I have an iPod Video, or 5.5, and it only seems to get around 11, Apple must have crummy quality control

Either way, thats not too bad that you're getting that battery life.
But its been like that from day 1.
The test I did was about playing the same MP3 song in a loop on IPOD & my smartphone. IPOD battery lasts at least 50% more time than my smartphone. I was wondering the root cause of this?
Is it something to do with Apple's optimizations on Mp3 decoding or Audio codec chip or something else?
