The Best Battery Life Phones For Watching Videos For Every Budget (2022)

The Best Battery Life Phones For Watching Videos For Every Budget


This is the international top 10 list. Click here to check out the US version.

These eight lists are for those who just love to watch videos, whether it's youtube videos, movies, your own recordings, or any other kind of videos. They're also constantly updated to reflect price changes.

According to GSMArena, these are the ones that endure the most time playing videos on a battery charge.

But you most likely won't be spending your juice on videos alone, so we've also considered talking and web browsing too.

After a full charge, these values are what you're left with, after one hour of talking, three hours of watching videos, and one hour of web browsing.

If you can't find a phone that fits your budget on the top 10 list, don't forget to check any of the other seven lists.

You should also consider other phones if you think the first one doesn't meet your needs because battery life isn't everything on a smartphone.

Tips: Prices marked with ! are from renewed/refurbished/carrier-locked phones. You can also find links to Amazon, eBay, Best Buy, and Walmart (and updated prices) in any comparison article.
