  1. A video showing the weakness of the iPhone followed by advertising on how to get rid of your iPhone; coincidence?

  2. Thanks for telling us about CellCashier – they really do offer great quotes for use iPhones if you compare them to other online buyback sites. I sent them my old iPhone 6s two days ago and I already received my money through PayPal. Thanks again!!

  3. "Video playback with no apps running in the background, on airplane mode"

    You've got to be fucking kidding me right? This is only valid when taking a flight. How about you do a real battery test? You know like what people actually do on their phones on a day to day basis? You clickbaiting cunt.

  4. I bought the s8 plus after watching many reviews and battery comparisons and seriously feel cheated. My s8 plus burns battery almost twice as fast as my iPhone 7 plus. I don't know what I'm doing wrong. For people thinking of buying the s8 plus thinking you're gonna get a longer lasting phone: DON'T! I have my resolution down to 720p and have to constantly close all the apps in the background.

    something is killing the phone when I'm not even using it. on a full day at work my iPhone usually has 30% left, and by then my s8 plus is already dead and I need to charge it 🙁

  5. From my experience with the regular Galaxy S8 (exynos) I can share the following:
    When using the phone with about 55% brightness (this is as bright as an iphone 7 at 85% brightness), expect about 10 hours of continuous usage with the display on.
    When using the phone at full brightness (autobrightness) for luxary-reasons, expect about 5-6 hours of continuous usage with the display on.
    The S8, before with NO standby, lasts in general 2-3x LONGER than the iphone 7 Plus.
    Now the fun part comes…the longer you keep your S8 in standby, the more it will drain battery. Very light users will find the iPhone 7 Plus outlasting the Galaxy S8 over the course of 2-3 days on a single charge.
    Heavy users: take the S8 as it lasts about 2-3x LONGER than the iPhone 7 Plus.
    Light users: take the iphone 7 Plus as it will outlast the S8 the less you use your iPhone.
    Snapchatters, Gamers & GPS navigation users: S8 all day! it lasts 2x longer than the iPhone 7 Plus when gaming at 100% brightness 😉

  6. I upgraded from the iPhone 6s Plus and I feel like it had better battery life than my s8. I've fixed a bunch of stuff in the settings, so I have no idea what it is that's killing my battery. I usually have to charge it once during the day.

  7. Can you please tell me what is standby time of S8+ because i have both Iphone 7 plus and S8+ and s8+ doesn't even come closer comparing to iPhone 7 plus battery. Please respond because i still can return my s8+. Thank you.

  8. test is skewed… 50% brightness on one phone does not equal to the same amount of nits as another phone. Iphone 7 are only 625 nits while Samsung capable of over 1000 nits

  9. At 2:33 you said that the 7 Plus is already older. To make the test as consistent as possible, you should've used a brand new 7 Plus since you were comparing it against a new S8+.

    Not an accurate test imo.

  10. how will it we wait new iphone.

    1 at least 48h last no charge.
    apparently improve sound quality?

    nothings is changed

  11. i.m getting about 5-6 h of screen on time on the s8+ with most of the features turned off gps,nfc,4g (i'm absolutley fine with 3G) My girfriend gets home with about 65% and i get home with about 40%.we use our phone about the same so what gives?

  12. My S8+ battery is drained withing 5hrs of continuous use (screen set to 1080P) watching YouTube on LTE, brightness set to 50% and connected to Bluetooth headphones. so in the end this what you get not 15 or whatever hours claimed.

  13. I'm torn between which to get because Samsung always tends to have alot of bloatware and the phone dies withoit being used. Yet it looks amazing and does have some capabilities such as external storage and fast charging.
    But the iPhone is clean gets the job done always organized and doesn't have any bloatware and is really good at not dying while not being used but is limited to what it will let you do.
    One dies before I get to fully enjoy and the other stays alive long enough to get bored.

  14. I am impressed. My galaxy s6 battery was so bad for my standards that i had to switch to a 7 plus and fell in love with the battery. To know the s8 have an even better one, sounds tempting

  15. Any android will beat the iphone easily at launch, do this after a couple of updates and you'll see how the samsung lost half the life because of the shitty job the carriers and samsung do for porting.

  16. I dont why iphone wont give us 2 day battery life like example
    -wifi upto 20 hours
    -3G upto. 18Hours
    -LTE upto. 18 Hours
    -videoplay back 18Hours
    Looks like will get this battery life in 2020 iphone

  17. Thanks but your conclusions are based on the lack of even basic Marin analysis. One battery is 3500 the other one 2900. From that alone the Galaxy should last 20.7% more than the iPhone. That is not the case, so the iPhone was more efficient. That is not important , but you did mention it, and did so wrong. Fred's video , it's just a grace in the end I am giving it s like

  18. I bought a brand new s8+ , my sis did too after recommending it. Battery life sucks. Charges fast but you can see it go down to the point where it gets you annoyed. I love the phone but you'll never put it on the highest res and battery will drain like a bitch on you

  19. In comparison apple fans will cycling murder everyone Samsun guys are chill iPhone has fucking awful battery life I tested and THE SAMSUNG S6 HAS BETTER LIFE STILL GET YA SHIT TOGETHER APPLE IM PLANNING TO GET THE X IF ITS SHIT FUCK U
