    I never do and was wondering if others did. But then again, I don't watch movies much.

    Only watch videos on my 6S if I happened to browse them (i.e. On the go). For actual watching movies activity, my iPad mini 2 will be the smallest screen I would use.

    Can't remember when I actually tried to watch a full movie on the phone. My main screen is the 55" TV.

    If I watch something on my iPhone 7+ it's a TV show, no longer than 30 minute time block, so in the 18-22 minute range, if anything longer, I get motion sickness. Can't watch on the go like in Car, due to motion sickness. But I do have my favorite shows on my iPhone that I've bought from iTunes.

    No. The smallest screen I'll watch anything longer than a YouTube video on is my iPad Mini 4, and even then, usually only TV shows and not feature films.

    Nope...screen too small. I have an Android tablet for movie duties.

    I'll watch a number of reviews on YouTube on my phone, but never a movie.

    I watch music videos on my iPhone SE, as well as video podcasts and some favorite movies I've bought from iTunes and re-watch periodically on any of my video-capable devices. For movies I've not seen before I prefer watching on a laptop. For something like an Apple keynote I don't mind watching for the first time on an iPad or iPad mini but still prefer laptop, then re-watch if interested later on iPhone SE.

    No. I don't even use my iPad Mini 2 or iPad Pro for movies either. Just my TV.

    The phones screen is way too small to enjoy watching movies to be honest. Occasional YouTube videos may work. Probably some people use the plus size phones to watch some videos but then that size is way too cumbersome for me to carry around.

    Sure, when my iPhone is the only screen I have at that moment. Soon, when the governments ban laptops and tablets on flights, many more people will be watching shows on their phones.

    When you have a 27inch monitor, 1440p. You can't really get used to the little screen. Unless it's p0rn and you don't want to get up from bed.

    Sometimes I watch short to medium videos (up to about 10 minutes) on my iPhone 6s. For longer videos I prefer my 15" MBP or the Apple TV. Our iPad Air 2 is sometimes used as a second screen or watching a two sport events (one on the TV and another on the iPad or MacBook).

    I've never watched a movie on my phone, only YouTube videos (so generally less than 10 minutes).

    To be honest, smartphones have the same capability as laptops and tablets. So if they ban those then I'd expect them to ban smartphones as well.

    Size is the difference. I thought they are already banning laptops on flights from Middle East to USA, but not phones.

    I'm sorry, what's the issue with the size there? I thought they're trying to avoid electronic devices.
