Pokemon Go Battery Test: iPhone 6S Plus v Galaxy S7 Edge v HTC 10 v LG G5 v Nexus 6P v OnePlus 3

Chances are when going outside you’ll bump into someone playing Pokemon Go or bump into someone while perfecting your pokeball throw.

The main issue for everyone playing the game, not including the constant disconnections from the servers, is battery life. We’ve taken the best smart phones and tested how long they last with Pokemon Go running in the background.

Taking the phones you picked from our previous battery test we have the iPhone 6S Plus, Galaxy S7 Edge, HTC 10, LG G5, Nexus 6P…

  1. a minute or hour 😀

  2. bull sorry Samsung is a battery wasters i've been Samsung since galaxy s3 loved them all

  3. How to make the screen stay on without touching it?

  4. Edge is far better because it's running that 1440p display and that stupid touchwiz. If edge has that iPhone display and lightweight ios just imagine the battery life. 😂

  5. What's the gps doing on the s7 tho?
    The g5 bottom chin is not even plugged in properly

  6. my phone can't handle that app so I can't download it no phone says it's not compatible with this game

  7. I knew the s7 would survive 3600 is a lot But my phone still charges faster it takes 50 min for my phone to reach 100 percent.. ZTE maven BTW I'm getting a new phone maybe soon..

  8. i have samsung galaxy s7 edge with android 6.0.1.Any1 knows when will the android 7.0 update gonna come in s7 edge

  9. i use htc desire 718g dual sim which works complete 5 hours
    and 20 minuits

  10. Samsung Galaxy Note 4 With A Zero Lemon 10,000 Mah Battery Case.. With The Normal 3220 Mah Battery I Get Approximately 5Hrs Gameplay Then The Phone Dies. With The Zero Lemon Case I Get Enough To Play 2 Days Of 5Hrs Each. Including Other Stuff -> Netflix, YouTube, Other Games & Web browsing Around 3days.. But With The Zero Lemon When The Battery Is At 1% It'll Last Around 1&Half Hours + lol.. It's A BEAST!!!!!

    Next Phone, Maybe A Note 8, S8 Edge Or Plus If They Release A Plus Version Then Definitely!!!!!

  11. Am I the only one who think that iPhone did a great job despite having 850 mAh less battery than the s7 edge.

  12. i wish you tested the samsung galaxy s7 too:( thats the phone i'm getting

  13. I have the Nexus 6P and it's terrible for battery life with Pokemon Go. Not only does it not last long but I've had the phone shut off anywhere from 15-45% battery life. The phone itself is great but the battery life is appalling.

  14. s7 edge snapdragon or exynos?

  15. Any chance you could redo this test with the S7 edge, Iphone 7 plus, Huawei P9 Plus, HTC 10, Google Pixel etc… Would love to see an updated version of this test as its really helpful

  16. No requirement spending any thing to obtain the Còins due to the fact that of this place

    Improving my development with utilizing it recently

  17. Let me remind you that iPhone is 1080p and Samsung 2k display… Not fear…

  18. Try a comparison with other phones! maybe the new OP3T, Honor 8, P9 lite

  19. you have to be kidding me. my s5 dies from 100 to 0 in one fucking hour. at almost minimum brightness

  20. I am using I phone 6s plus

  21. how many hour will the iphone 6s last

  22. What do you think that which phone will last more years working smoothly oneplus 3 or iPhone 6s?

  23. 5 hours? proud of it😆😆😆

  24. redo this please with lte or 3g. no one plays this game on WiFi!!

  25. the galaxy s7 edge has bad gps this is moving most

  26. Once you've rooted & optimized the S7E, the difference is even bigger! 🙂

    (Actualy once every Android phone of the test has been optimized, the difference would be noticeable)

  27. I have a Samsung 5s neo

  28. I have an iPhone 5C that died after about 2 hours of playing. Pretty shitty.

  29. Lol I play on my Moto g4 plus

  30. how much timet s7 surviv

  31. LG G5 Dies Hang on a second guys. Pulls out back up battery and pops it in We're good to go!

  32. Man look how much the GPS in the S7 sucks, he's walking all over and the phones are all still!.. great ill buy that one and hatch eggs without moving!! ^_^
    Also the one with the biggest battery won!! HOLYshitballs.

  33. ima be honest samsung really fixed there battery in the s7 serie

  34. I'm using an HTC One m8

  35. my I phone 6 exploded……😞

  36. the screen burn in must be horrible on the s7 edge after this test

  37. just did this same test, except in real life conditions 🙂 so i did actually play and not just run the game, outside it was under 10C (was quite cold, windy, rainy… not the best for battery life), on 4G/3G, in game battery save OFF, had to restart the game about 7-8 times, coz it froze all the time… started at 80 something % and finished at 22% battery. the session was 4 hour 21 minutes long, than i gave up because of the weather…

    i will bet anyone who owns any of these 'flagship' phones, that these phones cannot do that 🙂

    ohh yes my phone was an 85$ Chinese phone (4000mAh) 🙂

    so if you want to play hardcore Pokemon go and can afford a 500$+ phone (~800$ for Samsung…), my guess is that you can afford a 100$ Chinese phone too 😉 some of them have even bigger battery (10000mAh). not so shinny but for this game the best 🙂

  38. us e the Samsung Galaxy Note 5

  39. Given the fact the s7 has a QHD display and the iPhone has a FHD display the S7 did much much better in this test

  40. Agree in LG when it becomes hot it drastically drains its battery.

  41. my samsung galaxy j5 has slightly the same battery life as the s7 but i play with lte not wifi
