Battery is one of the most important smartphone features. We’ve put some of the best flagship phones money can buy right now to the test. We pitted the iPhone 7, Google Pixel, Samsung Galaxy S7, LG G5, HTC 10, and Sony Xperia XZ against each other.

Our camera and speed tests are are still to come but now it’s time for our phones to take on the battery challenge.

    Samsung has mastered everything from Camera to the exyno CPU that blow the snapdragon out of water in terms of heat problem. Samsung is also ahead in display and battery management .

    If you aren't one to use your phone a lot, the iPhone is the best option. There is no better battery on a smartphone in a standby mode.

    I have been debating for a while to whether get a G5 or a S7. S7 is about ~$150 more expensive than a G5.
    -S7 has a better camera overall, G5's Camera excels on some parts, to me it's debatable, and really comes down to what you want.
    – Battery life, ok, the S7 has smashed it here, but the G5 isn't much far off. Plus The battery is removable on the G5, carry 2 batteries when you are going out and you'll basically have double the battery life.
    – Both have External memory.
    – Processors: Give and take on both, pretty much similar.
    What I think is, the galaxy s7 is about $150 more expensive than the G5, because better camera, the aperature, waterproof, and because of the Samsung galaxy brand( I mean people get it just because samsung right) . I did a lot of research and asking around. The S7 edge is a freaking beast I agree, but is it really necessary? It is literally a more fancy version of the normal s7.
    I don't game on my phone, so we can scratch that.

    My conclusion: There are a lot of people who just gets the samsung s_ because it's the samsung brand, and doesn't look at specs. The G5 may not be up to par as compared to the Galaxy S7, it's still a powerful phone non the less. Do I want a wide angle lens, or a better aperature for dark places? For the fact the battery is removable, I can carry an extra battery when I'm outside so lifetime is basically doubled. I can live without the waterproof feature, as I never really bring my phone into the washroom. But I really like the aperture feature on the S7, not going to lie. I have decided to go with a LG G5, as it would feel you get more bang for your buck. Plus the modular thing seems pretty interesting.

    Pixel I scratched right away because no external storage, and relies too much on cloud storage(which means YOU HAVE TO HAVE AN INTERNET CONNECTION). HOWEVER, it is a pure stock android so there are no junk apps, that's a pretty good plus. Plus it's pretty pricey.

    this video may be a huge fake. We can't see the % of the phone in the video, so with this system I cant belive the results, I need a better review, showing a few times the phone % in the screen like do another channels.
