A real-world Speed Test made it known that Samsung's latest Galaxy Note 8 phablet defeated iPhone 8 Plus, turning the previous benchmarks results of the two handsets the other way around. Apple’s latest smartphone may have dominated the test results on benchmarks, but the mobile device was unsuccessful when it comes to real-world speed tests.

Real-world speed tests

YouTuber David Rahimi posted on his PhoneBuff channel the speed test between Samsung and Apple’s latest flagship smartphones. The YouTuber has been sharing such videos for years, and Rahimi has been utilizing a straightforward method in differentiating the mobile devices’ speeds.

The speed tests of the YouTuber require the mobile devices to access 16 applications in two rounds. The speed tests were comprised of lighter apps and heavier apps.

In the speed test, the iPhone 8 Plus consistently came out on top over other Android mobile devices. Nonetheless, when Apple’s smartphone went up against Samsung’s latest phablet, the speed test results were surprising. According to Android Headlines, the Galaxy Note 8 completed the speed tests with an edge of six seconds over Apple’s device. Samsung's new device has managed to defeat Apple’s new iPhone in terms of speed without even giving up background processing.

Rahimi’s speed test results between Samsung and Apple’s latest mobile devices were unexpected for the reason that early Geekbench scores revealed how powerful the Cupertino-based tech company’s A11 Bionic processor is.

Also, the Galaxy Note 8 that was used in the speed test is equipped with Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 835 processor, which was launched almost a year ago.

Specs of the smartphones

Nonetheless, the Samsung Galaxy Note 8 features a 6.3-inch Infinity Display with an aspect ratio of 18:5:9, protected by Corning Gorilla Glass 5. The smartphone boasts a dual camera system, consisting of two 12MP telephoto and wide-angle sensors.

The mobile device runs on the Android 7.1 Nougat operating system. The handset is equipped with a non-removable 3,300mAh battery, an enhanced Bixby, dual-tone LED Flash, S-Pen stylus and a 4G connectivity support.

Meanwhile, aside from the latest A11 Bionic processor of the iPhone 8 Plus, the smartphone has the same graphics power as Apple’s 10th-year-anniversary device, iPhone X.

According to Deccan Chronicle, the handset features a dual camera setup, consisting of two 12MP telephoto and wide-angle sensors. The device also comes along with a new Portrait Lighting mode and an Optical Image Stabilization.
