Looks like the list?

YouTube called smartphones with the label “YouTube Signature Device”, which are the best for watching videos. The full list included 18 of the gadgets, which were the flagships of Samsung and HTC.

In particular, the experts included in the list of Note 9, Xiaomi Mi 8, 6 OnePlus, Samsung Galaxy S8 and S8+, S9 and S9+, Google Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL, HTC U12, XZ2 Premium Xperia and other devices.

When choosing gadgets took into account a number of criteria, including the ability to work 360-degree video, the quality of displaying 4K images, support HDR video and a high frame rate.

None of the iPhone in the list were not included. It is assumed that the reason might be the lack of support for a proprietary codec VP9 by Google.

Because of this, for example, viewing videos in 4K in Safari is impossible.
