We have already published dozens of tests and speed comparisons between smartphones here on MacMagazine. I actually lost count. But it turns and moves one that impresses.
It is true that these tests are quite subjective, as there is no way to emulate in a single way how people use their smartphones. But, at least today, I venture to say that this test ?format? that you will see below is the most suitable for this tough task. That said, let's go to him:
In the video, we see a "complete" comparison between the following devices: Samsung Galaxy S8, iPhone 7 Plus, LG G6, Google Pixel and OnePlus 3T. And I'm not lying when I say that the oldest one, yes, all these Android devices were launched after the iPhone 7, by far, which has the best performance!
The first test involves opening / loading / running, one by one, several applications (among them social networking apps, image and video editors, games, among others); Upon completing "one lap", the test is redone to see how the devices handle the storage of apps / games in RAM.
Result: iPhone 7 Plus finished the first lap at 2?44 ?and the second at just 0?33?! By comparison, the runner-up (the Galaxy S8) finished the first lap in 5?36 ?! Google Pixel was the last one, finishing the first lap at 6?34 ?, moreover, it took the longest to complete the second lap (2?15?).
The second test performed compared the device startup time; in this, the iPhone 7 Plus was again the first, slightly ahead of the S8; Google Pixel, again, was the last.
The iPhone 7 Plus was also the first to load / render an image with 8K resolution and open the Asphalt 8: Airbone game completely. The only test in which he was not in first place was the loading of the game Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas.
In comparing numbers, captured by the Geekbench 4 app, the iPhone not only finished first, as Apple's strength in developing its own chips showed. In mode single-core, the A10 Fusion processor crushed the competition (Snapdragon 835 and 821) by achieving a score of 3,538, while the others stayed at around 1,800 / 1,900; j no multi-core, the Galaxy S8 achieved an incredible 6,202, while the iPhone 7 Plus was very close with 5,954.
In the GPU test, the iPhone also did well and scored 175,606 points, against 165,521 on the S8.
In general, as we can see even with more modest specifications than some of its competitors, the iPhone 7 Plus performs all tasks with praise. I am particularly impressed how a device launched in September 2016 manages to look like this, in front of a top-of-the-line device launched a few weeks ago.
And taking into account that Apple will soon also start to create its graphic chips for iPads and iPhones, the tendency that it will continue to control more and more all its hardware and software, creating a synergy rarely found in competing devices.
