Another video uploaded on YouTube shows the speed test between three smartphones all running the Snapdragon 835. According to GSMArena, the video shows how the three smartphones run 20 apps in succession against the clock. This first round is performed in order to determine how quickly the different smartphones can access the apps that were already launched. Meaning, it is a battle of RAM amount and management.
