The recently announced iPhone 7 features Apple’s brand new A10 Fusion chip, which is touted by the company as the “most powerful chip ever in a smartphone.” Needless to say, it will be very interesting to put this claim to the test, and a recent speed test did just that.
This speed test was done by the folks over at PhoneBuff, which also did a similar test comparing the iPhone 6s to Samsung’s Galaxy Note 7. In that particular speed test, the iPhone 6s managed to outclass the Note 7 by a pretty huge margin, so how did the iPhone 7 do in comparison?
Not surprisingly, the iPhone 7 performed even better than its predecessor did. In the beginning of the test above, the iPhone 7 quickly took the lead, and finished the test a whopping one minute and 34 seconds faster than the Galaxy Note 7. It’s evident from the video above that the iPhone 7 also kept most apps active in the background.
Of course, this speed test is obviously not a good gauge of real life usage, but it does show just how capable the new iPhone 7 is. Then again, it also has a much lower resolution display in comparison to the Note 7; there’s also the fact that optimisation between iOS and Android are not comparable.
Regardless, there’s no denying that the iPhone 7 is a powerful smartphone thanks to the A10 Fusion chip, which some suspect is responsible for the “hissing” issue with the new device.
