Which phone has the best battery for watching YouTube?

YouTube battery test

Watching video is one of the most intensive drains on your phone's battery tank, and YouTube is usually the main culprit.

For that reason, we took a selection of our favorite flagship phones and put them on a loop of YouTube videos to test which one lasted the longest.

We put the iPhone 6S Plus, LG G5, HTC 10, Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge, Nexus 6P and the OnePlus 3 head to head. Watch the video below to find out which phone came out top.
