Video playback performance comparison of six popular smartphones

The OptoFidelity test team loves to measure and compare mobile devices to concretize how certain performance features effect to the end-user experience. This time we measured the video playback performance of six popular smartphones. The new brand Oneplus One was also included. The other phones tested were the iPhone 5S and 5C, the LG G3, the Samsung Galaxy S4 and S5. Unfortunately we did not have an iPhone 6 available, but the testing sequel is forthcoming. Stay tuned!

In this test all devices performed well with locally stored video. The smoothest performance came from the iPhone 5S, but even this flagship model had problems and noticeable deviation with YouTube video performance. As a newcomer, Oneplus One performed well with local videos. There was evident deviation with the playback but the results in general were equal to those of most of the other brands. Overall there is still plenty of room for improvement for all manufacturers with streamed video playback, which is the fastest increasing way of video watching.
