Earlier this month YouTube channel PhoneBuff posted a speedtest of the iPhone 6 against the Galaxy S5 and HTC One M8. Now, the channel has released another speedtest video, but this time pitting the iPhone 6 Plus against the Galaxy Note 4.
The test has both devices opening the same apps in order and then going back to these apps again, with the ‘fastest’ device finishing its test by stopping the stopwatch.
If you’re into tests where app opening speeds are tested alone, this video might be of interest to you, which reveals the winner as the Note 4 by a few seconds:
The Galaxy Note 4 runs a 5.7-inch Quad HD display at 2560 x 1440 (3.6 million pixels) with 3GB of RAM along with a 2.7GHz quad core or 1.9GHz Octa Core (in Asia) processor.
The iPhone 6 Plus runs a 5.5-inch display at 1080 x 1920 (2.07 million pixels) along with a 1.4GHz dual core A8 chip with only 1GB of RAM.
We can look at this test in two ways: the Galaxy Note 4 showing its speed given its top tier hardware, or the iPhone 6 Plus showing off its efficiency thanks to Apple’s control over both hardware and software. What do you think?
