Could you tell me if it's natural to say my phone holds a charge well in the sense its battery last long enough? For example:

One of the most valuable advantages of my phone is the fact the it holds a charge well.

If sounds off, could you provide options native English speakers would say to communicate the message?

The phrase "holds a charge well" could be used, but it doesn't directly address how long it lasts. It's more common to say "My phone has [a] good battery life.", where "a" is optional.

  • "Holds a charge well" is more apt for saying that it has low self-discharge: that once charged, the battery will stay charged a long time if the phone is left turned off or unused. Commented Jun 6, 2020 at 15:36
