If there is one thing that’s certain in the tech world, it’s the iOS and Android debate. Just recently, a speed test comparing the iPhone 6s to the new Samsung Galaxy Note 7 surfaced on the internet. Surprisingly, despite packing the latest hardware, the Note 7 was outclassed by the almost one-year-old iPhone 6s.
This speed test was done by PhoneBuff; it involved running a series of apps on both the iPhone 6s and Galaxy Note 7. About 10 seconds into the test, the iPhone 6s started to blaze through the Note 7. By the end of the whole thing, the iPhone 6s managed to finish the test almost by a whole minute ahead of the Note 7; that’s a really impressive feat for a smartphone that was released last year. However, it’s worth noting that the Note 7 has a much higher resolution display, which affects the overall performance of the device.
On top of that, the speed test was also done on the Snapdragon 820 variant of the Galaxy Note 7. In Malaysia, the Note 7 is equipped with Samsung’s own Exynos 8890 processor instead. That being said, despite packing a different processor from the Note 7 available here in Malaysia, the iPhone 6s’ huge lead in the test shows that this may not matter.
This just goes to show that hardware is just one part of the equation: software plays an equally important role as well. If the iPhone 6s’ performance is still relevant today, it’ll be interesting to see what improvements the next iPhone will bring.
