Immediately after the launch of new flagships on the network, various types of comparative tests begin to appear. One of them is the classic speed test, which involves launching several applications one by one. This smartphone will win, which will launch all applications in shorter time period. How does this race new iPhone 8 Plus? The fight was against Samsung Galaxy Note 8.
New iPhones are always very good at synthetic tests. As we look at the rankings from AnTuTu benchmark, it’s been two years in a row winning the new iPhone. It is believed that this is not the case, and this success Apple owes better operating system optimization. Of course, Cupertino engineers can afford it, because Apple designs both software and hardware. Of course, the iPhone also has components from other manufacturers, but the smartphone processor, which has huge impact on its performance, is designed by Apple.
The Samsung Galaxy Note 8 on the paper is more powerful smartphone than the iPhone 8 Plus.
With the iPhone it has always been that their specifications fell pretty bad compared to the Android flagship mobiles. Let’s start with the processor. Apple A11 Bionic has only 6 cores, but in GeekBench benchmarks it crushed all Samsung models. It does not matter if we are talking about Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 or Samsung Exynos 8895. In addition, the iPhone 8 Plus has half the RAM than the Note 8. Namely, 3 GB instead of 6 GB. However, Apple uses NVMe memory for internal storage, which is faster than the UFS modules used in Samsung Galaxy Note 8 (and other Android smartphones). The test results are quite surprising. The iPhone 8 Plus had a slight advantage during the first “lap”, but when the same applications were reopened, the Samsung Galaxy Note 8 was faster. This is probably due to less RAM.
