The iPhone 8 is one of the fastest high-end phones on the market. In a recent video, the newiPhone 8 Plus however was beaten by the Galaxy Note 8 in a speed test.
The principle of the test is simple. The first round consists in launching the same applications at the same time on the 2 phones. Then, for the second round, we reopen these applications (which run in the background). This exercise allows you to determine which device is able to keep the most in memory without needing to fully charge them.
We owe this speed test between the iPhone 8 Plus and the Galaxy Note 8 to the YouTube channel PhoneBuff. The video shows the new Apple phone winning the first run with a time of 1 minute and 27 seconds. That of Samsung comes out in 1 minute and 30 seconds. In the second run, the Galaxy Note 8 finishes well ahead of the iPhone 8 Plus. Indeed, the Samsung smartphone (2 min and 1 sec) passes the test with 6 seconds ahead of the apple brand device (2 min and 7 sec).
Released in September, the iPhone 8 Plus has the A11 Bionic processor from Apple and 3 GB of RAM. The Galaxy Note 8 has 6 GB of RAM and uses the Exynos 8895 processor for the version distributed in Europe.
