For anyone familiar with synthetic and real-world smartphone performance tests, these results will come as no surprise. Yes, the iPhone 6 speeds past both the Samsung Galaxy S5 and HTC One M8 even though both of the latter offer much “faster” processors and more RAM.
However, impressive the iPhone 6 and predecessors have proven to be on synthetic benchmarks, true iPhone 6 speed can only be measured by real world performance testing. Here again, though, iPhone 6 speed impresses again.
David Rahimy at Phonebuff set out to settle the question of which is the fastest smartphone — iPhone 6, Samsung Galaxy S5 or HTC One M8. It would seem an unequal competition given the Android smartphone’s larger number of processor cores running at higher clock rates and larger RAM complements.
“But as many of us know, specs don’t always translate into real world performance,” writes Rahimi. “Still, the idea of a dual-cored 1 GB of RAM iPhone 6 outperforming a beefy 2014 Android flagship does seem a bit far fetched.”
Mike drop, boom!
So, if you have an Android phone you should trash it and get a shiny new iPhone 6 or iPhone 6 Plus? Nope, there are many, many reasons to buy a smartphone, including fit n’ finish, style, workflow, ecosystem and more.
However, if it’s synthetic test results and real-world task completion that you value, iPhone 6 speed is the benchmark…
What’s your take?
