Battery Test: iPhone 6S Plus vs iPhone 7 Plus vs iPhone 8 Plus vs iPhone X (Video)

Experiment time. This time, we’re going to test the batteries on the iPhone 6S Plus, iPhone 7 Plus, iPhone 8 Plus, and the iPhone X. To do this, I am running all of the phones on the same Wifi network with all the same accounts active on them (and getting notifications at the same time), screen brightness is set to 50% and we’re streaming the same Nyan cat video from YouTube on them all. Let’s see what happens.

Well, oddly enough, the iPhone X won which was surprising to me considering I feel on a day to day it’s battery life is worse. This might have something to do with Face ID firing up during normal use but not during this test, as well as other factors, I’m sure (because clearly this isn’t the most scientific of tests). The other weird thing was that the 6S Plus killed the iPhone 7 Plus and 8 Plus.

Regardless, hope this was interesting to you guys, and let me know if you have a suggestion for a better way to test the batteries in future videos. Thanks!
