Watch the 2015 iPhone 6s Beat Samsung’s Galaxy S8 in Speed Test [VIDEO]


YouTube channel PhoneBuff has shared another one of their classic speed tests, this time putting the latest Samsung Galaxy S8 versus Apple’s iPhone 6s from 2015.

While these speed tests are unofficial and consist of opening a series of apps, then reopening them, the nearly two-year old iPhone 6s with its 2GB of RAM and A9 CPU, manages to upset the Galaxy S8, which has an Exynos 8895 CPU and 4GB of RAM.

While the Galaxy S8 took a lead in the beginning, the iPhone 6s caught up in the end thanks to its better memory management and took the win, while Samsung again took the ‘L’. Check out the 4-minute video below:

Last August, PhoneBuff uploaded a similar speed test, which saw the iPhone 6s slay the Galaxy Note 7.

What do you think of this unofficial speed test?

    4.7 1080 screen vs 5.7 quad HD screen. Hmmm not sure why

  • FragilityG4

    You think the screen size and resolution made the S8 lose?

    It takes a lot more processing power to push those additional pixels, yes. I can’t stand the Samsung UI, and use an iphone myself, but OP is right, the two are not wholly comparable here.

    But the S8 was in the lead for the first half and fell apart when it had to reload apps that it had in the background which is where it always fails. The screen might have a slight impact but it is just that– slight.

    The S8 has a much nicer resolution that takes more power to process

  • Michel Plante

    Easy to understand Samsung SUCKS ????

  • FragilityG4

    I guess that was the same excuse for the S7… and the S6……

  • Robert Phelan

    I own both the iPhone 6S and Galaxy S8. I can’t speak for technical tests but over all the S8 is the best phone I have ever owned. I have and had many high end phones and the S8 is the best over all phone ever made. Yup surprised the heck out of me too lol

    Considering the fan fare going on. I have a mint 6s plus… anyone wants it in trade for an S8 or S8 plus. Lemme know.

  • jay

    Yes because the processor needs more power pushing the pixel

  • FragilityG4

    So why was the S8 winning in the beginning? It only lost, again, because it’s unable to keep apps loaded in the background. This has nothing to do with pixels.
