Samsung Galaxy S8 vs iPhone 7 Plus Speed Test: Which Phone Rules?
Samsung Galaxy S8 is set to debut on April 21, but a YouTube video has put its speed performance to a test against Apple's iPhone 7 Plus. The video began with some side-by-side comparisons between the two smartphones. It then proceeded to unveil the highlight which is the much-anticipated speed test between the two tech rivals.
YouTuber EverythingApplePro compared the S8 and iPhone 7 Plus speed performance by gradually opening up a series of apps one after another. The speed battle finished off with a 4K 30 fps movie file to see which phone could render it in the shortest time and with quality resolution. Interestingly, but also with little surprise, the landslide winner of the real world speed test is none other than Apple's iPhone 7 Plus.
According to Tom's Guide, watchers of the Samsung Galaxy S8 and Apple iPhone 7 Plus speed test video might expect that the S8 would have the advantage. Primarily because it packs Qualcomm’s latest flagship Snapdragon 835 chip. However, the 6-month-old iPhone 7 Plus and its A10 Fusion processor completed the test in almost half the time of the S8.
According to BGR, the speed test video is something that we have never seen before, and it's interesting to watch how each phone responds as the apps were opened one by one. However, it did not actually measure the speed, so it was regarded as a bad speed test. Despite the technicality, buyers and users can still evaluate well how each phone would perform.
The Samsung Galaxy S8 and Apple iPhone 7 Plus speed test video has shown people good reasons not to get Galaxy S8 and just stick with their iPhone 7 Plus. Additionally, when EverythingApplePro decided to rerun the test, it appears that the Galaxy S8’s memory management had cleared all the apps. On the other hand, the iPhone 7 Plus was able to retain all of the apps open in the background, which signifies that it didn’t have to reload any software.
