Longest smartphone battery life

Do any new smartphones offer battery life of more than 24 hours? My last couple of phones I've had to charge every single night.

That's quite subjective, it depends on how much you're using it, quality of signal etc but the LG G2 sees me through a full day easily and my girlfriend 2 days.

It charges up super-fast too. I don't really worry about putting it on charge at night unless I have to be up really early. Usually less than 2 hours to get me from >10% up to full.
My most impressive battery life was at home most of the day with strong WiFi signal:
16 Hours 33 Minutes on Battery
Screen Time On 5 Hours 2 Minutes
Remaining Battery 27%
Then put it on charge and it was full in less than 90 Minutes

It just really depends on personal preference. Sometimes my current Note 2 can last over 24 hrs without too much data, but sometimes I have to plug in at 3pm. If using my mpj extended battery it definitely get over 24 hrs on a charge with my normal usage.

Sometimes?
Can you describe your usage?
I had a Note 2 and my usage would normally be considered "heavy", but no way would I ever have needed to plug in by 3pm... In fact, I'd get through almost 2 full days - and that included (in addition to my normal usage pattern) playing with loads of apps, tweaks etc...

OP - might I add: I'm currently trying an iPhone 5c. I had an iPhone 5. The 5c has very good battery life. They say it's "10% better" than the 5, because the battery's capacity was increased by roughly 10%. But in real life terms the increase translates to much better performance.
In fact, using the 5c in exactly the same way as the 5, I get almost double the lifetime squeezed out of a full charge. Where the iPhone 5 usually got me through a day and then the next morning, the 5c gets me almost through two full work days (except for when I experiment with new apps etc...)

Full screen brightness and games are the real killers of batteries:)

Who can look at a Galaxy Note with screen brightness on a 100%? :p
It's like staring right into the sun with a strong telescope.
But granted: gaming... I'm not into mobile gaming - even on a large device such as the Note 2.
