In a shocking new speed test, the new iPhone 7 blows away the Galaxy Note 7 so completely you might forget about the Samsung phone’s other problems. Let us read more about iPhone 7 vs Galaxy Note 7: Speed Test.

YouTube user “PhoneBuff” was one of the first to devise a smartphone speed test that is intended to give users an idea of how a phone will perform in the real world relative to another phone. We all know that benchmark tests never paint a complete picture since they only test a phone’s capabilities under an extremely heavy load. In real life, our smartphones are rarely under so much stress, so PhoneBuff’s test focuses on opening and switching apps, since that’s what we spend most of our time doing.

We typically try not to spoil the results but this time around, we can’t help ourselves: Apple’s new iPhone 7 absolutely crushed the Samsung Galaxy Note 7. It wasn’t even close. In fact, it was embarrassing. And this test was performed using the smaller iPhone 7, which only has 2GB of RAM compared to 3GB in the larger iPhone 7 Plus (we can undoubtedly expect to see an iPhone 7 Plus test soon enough).

Just how brutal was the beating? The full video is embedded below which illustrates the speed test: iPhone 7 vs Galaxy Note 7.


The video pits the iPhone 7 against Samsung’s Galaxy Note 7 to see which of the two phones is the fastest when it comes to running various apps and games.

In fact, in the speed test to open a series of apps, one at a time, the iPhone 7 laps the Samsung Galaxy Note 7. The Apple phone opens all the apps and games twice in the amount of time it takes Samsung’s handset to complete the set of tasks once.

It’s yet another reminder that a smartphone’s specs are far from the only determining factor in how fast operates. People can say what they like about the Galaxy Note 7’s Snapdragon 820 processor and “superior” 4GB of RAM, but the efficiency of iOS and Apple’s chip design working together means there’s no contest concerning which is faster in the real world.

The fact that the iPhone 7 didn’t have to be removed from the market because its battery explodes is just icing on the cake.
