The iPhone 6 has been put up against the Samsung Galaxy S5 and HTC One (M8) in a new speedtest video posted by YouTube channel PhoneBuff.

Despite the iPhone 6 “only” (imagine air quotes here) having 1GB of RAM and the A8’s dual-core CPU clock speed of 1.4GHz, it beats the Galaxy S5 (quad core CPU at 2.5GHz, 2GB RAM) and HTC One M8 (quad core CPU at 2.3GHz, 2GB RAM).

Of course this test doesn’t prove everything when it comes down to choosing the best phone, but it does go to show impressive specs on paper don’t mean everything–as software plays a part too.
