Which phone currently has the longest battery life?

Which phone has the longest battery life? Any OS, but something with high-end specs and a big display too preferably!

My Lumia 1520 is doing pretty well. It's huge, though. HUGE. I cannot use it as my everyday kinda on-the-go device.
BUT: example: yesterday I had time to kill. Hot, so I sat outside and played GTA San Andreas
on the Lumia 1520. Screen brightness and volume to MAX I started at 95% battery. After 90 minutes I was at 86% - which translated to an 'expected' 2 days and 16 hours left... WiFi and 3G were on while I was playing, and 2 email accounts and Twitter on Push notification.

I reckon the Note 2 and 3 might come close.
HTC One M8 (for comparison): an hour GTA Vice City with earphones and in Airplane mode: 25% battery gone...

Oh, 'my' 1520 runs WP8.1 preview...

From memory the LG flex is a monster in this dept, but for some actual test results, see here
Yep, Jan will be happy, the 1520 is the best phone for battery life

I just wish it was 4.7in instead of 6in... LOL
The 1520 is stunning otherwise. But then the battery would be smaller relative to screen size.

Impressive stats. I can see why it's popular.

LG G2 has never failed me so far.
Typical example:

Today it's been on Battery for 14 Hours so far (screen on time of 2 Hours 30 minutes) and I've probably listened to about 3 Hours of Music (with ViPER Super Audio Quality enabled which is known to speed up battery drain).

The screen is beautiful. And its visibility in bright sunlight is unreal!
Also: as much as I dislike Windows/MS - the WP IE is excellent. That is a smartphone browser as it should be.
Because of size I won't be keeping the 1520. But the 930 is going to be my next.
