Speedtest: Samsung Galaxy S8 vs iPhone 7 Plus [VIDEO]

A series of real world speed tests carried out by the folks over at EverythingApplePro in a new YouTube video shows that Apple’s 6-month old iPhone 7 Plus beats the newly released Samsung Galaxy S8 by a wide margin. The test involves the two handsets being kept side by side with a list of applications such as Snapchat, Netflix, and a variety of video games, being opened on each simultaneously.

In the beginning, Samsung’s flagship S8 is somewhat able to keep up, but it soon begins to lose by a significant margin once the test reaches the game loading part. Interestingly, the iPhone 7 Plus is able to render a 4-minute 4K video in half the time of the Galaxy S8. Even the boot time is much faster on the iPhone 7 Plus.
