Now that iPhone 7 is available in stores and already in the hands of millions, it’s the perfect time to check how it performs as compared to the competition. When we say iPhone’s competitor, the Galaxy line of Android smartphones are the first devices that come to the mind. Samsung’s Galaxy Note 7, which is currently the latest Samsung smartphone, is quite possibly the fastest Android handset available right now. While Apple’s last-gen iPhone 6s has already beaten it to the pulp, it’s literally crushed by Apple’s latest iPhone 7 in this latest speed test.
The speed test has been put together by PhoneBuff. In the video, the guy does not rely on the benchmarks of these two devices, rather he puts them through some real-world testing by loading some common resource hungry games and apps and going back and forth.
As you can see in the video below, Apple iPhone 7 manages to completely open 14 different apps and games in just over 1 minute and 14 seconds. While the Galaxy Note 7 takes over 2 minutes to complete the same task. Please note that Apple’s iPhone 7 is powered with Apple A10 Fusion chipset and only has a 2GB of RAM (check out iPhone 7 specs), while Qualcomm’s latest Snapdragon 820 chip is handling the computing tasks inside the Note 7 alongside a 4GB of RAM.
When the speed tests go through the second lap of opening the same 14 apps again in the same sequence, the Galaxy Note 7 is well over 1 minute behind the iPhone 7. Here’s the video of iPhone 7 vs Galaxy Note 7 – Speed Test:
This video is yet another proof of how incredibly fast and efficient Apple’s A-Series chipsets are despite having fewer cores as compared to the rivals. It’s not the first time Apple’s A-series processors have outpaced rival chipsets.
