Battery Test: Razer Phone vs Mate 10 Pro vs OnePlus 5T vs Essential vs Note8 vs Pixel 2XL vs iPhone X (Video)

Another experiment today, this time I wanted to see how the Razer Phone held up to the other top flagships in terms of battery life. So to test this, I filmed a time-lapse of the Razer phone playing the same Nyan cat video on YouTube and on the same wifi network as all the other device I had in my previous flagship battery test video, cropped it into the video (replacing the worst performer from that video, the V30), and timed it so it was lined up with the rest of them and let them all run with timers. Here’s what happened.

As we can see the Razer phone didn’t do horribly, coming basically in the middle with a time of 9 hours, 47 mins, and 30 seconds. This beat the Essential phone, Pixel 2 XL and iPhone, but losing to the OnePlus 5T, Note8, and Mate 10 Pro.

It is worth noting, that it has a 4000mah battery, the same as the Mate 10 Pro and 700mah larger than the OnePlus and Note8 so we can chalk this up to the software optimizations that the other three do helping them beat it out (and the Huawei being known for this really). Not bad for the first phone ever from Razer, I suppose.

What do you guys think? Let me know in the comments below and feel free to suggest a better battery test going forward, love to hear suggestions. Thanks for watching!
