    can the G4's battery last longer than the old Galaxy S5?

    let's say I charge both the G4 and S5 batteries to 100%.
    Put both in airplane mode with wifi turned off. Set them
    both to 100% brightness and start playing an identical
    2-hour 720p MKV video stored on the phone's internal
    memory(not SD card) and just let the video loop and loop.

    Which phone will most likely die first?

    For reference, I've already tried this comparison a couple
    of times using my old S5 and new S6(non-edge). The S6
    died at least1 hour and 47 minutes faster than the old S5.
    The S5 was bought in June 2014 and its battery gets charged
    from 5% to 100% every single day... over 300 cycles already.
    On the other hand, the S6's battery has only gone through
    full charge cycle maybe only 4 times so far.

    It would be hard to judge usage since no one has the phone yet.

    LG claims to have better screen tech and the assumption is that they have a larger battery. Which processor are they using? That'd be the next biggest driver of battery life.

    S5 will win.

    AMOLED just has phenomenon battery life in playing videos. It's rooted in its technology.

    G4 may well last longer in mixed tasks, but playing video, nothing beats AMOLED.

    I think the size of the battery will not matter, it will be performance and use that will actually matter when we will be analyzing battery backup.

    That's what phones with small batteries always say

    people who say size does not matter are just kidding themselves.... just ask the ladies. (but they are usually too nice to tell the truth)
