Kinemaster Android Video Editor
Kinemaster is a very popular and old video editor for Android I am personally using kinemaster for 3 years From the time of the lollipop Android version. at that time it was the only one software upon which I can rely completely. you can download this software free from Play Store. Though there is a paid version available for kinemaster which provides some more features and some more effects which you can apply to your video.

Powerdirector Android Video Editor
For the past two months, I am using CyberLink powerdirector in my Android mobile for treating purposes. and the more I am using this software I am falling in love with this software. CyberLink powerdirector provides a very similar is user interface to the PC version. that’s why it was very easy to adapt the user interface and to use it on mobile.

Using Desktop Mode in Your Mobile Browser
But as I have edited video as well as mobile and in my laptop so that I can say that if you add two videos in the laptop, it will be more effective and you will get a lot of controls there as the editors available for mobile doesn’t keep all of that controls that is available on your PC version software.
But in the starting stage, you can definitely edit youtube videos from your mobile phone. if you do not have a computer you can turn on the desktop mode from your browser and can access YouTube Studio from your mobile. from that you can also edit your uploaded YouTube videos but in that case, you have to zoom in and zoom out again and again to get the control over your video timeline.
so, the conclusion is that yes you can edit your YouTube videos on your mobile phone, but if you have your laptop or your computer with you should definitely go for that. As that will give you a better result as well as better control.
