Real-World Speed Test: 2GB RAM iPhone 6s Plus Dual-Core Vs Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge With 4GB RAM, Nexus 6P And Moto X Pure Edition

Smokes around! Didn’t get the point, then follow an almost endless list of gadgets to consider when looking to purchase you best smartphone. Customers these days generally willing to keep a particular handset for a minimum of twelve months, and over extends to a maximum of twenty-four, or even thirdy-six months if the hardware really meets their needs. Comparison is some sort of technical progression, every customer want’s to aknowledge before they go buying a new hardware, either it could be an iPhone or an Android-powered mobile phone. With that in mind, if you abstract away a lot of characteristics that a device must have to appeal to a broad range of consumers, then you’re left with one specific test; pure device performance and speed. This is what happened here betterly compared to one another in a speed test. Let this real-time video on speed test light your way up the high expectations.

There are four from 2015-released Motorola’s Moto X Pure Edition, Google’s Huawei-made Nexus 6P, Apple’s iPhone 6s Plus and 2016-released Galaxy S7 Edge by Samsung. All of these smartphone come with their own visual appeal and contain very distinct aesthetic differences that will appeal to a variety of peoples interest. Devices in this list contains very different internal specifications that should set some of them apart from the others. At least that’s theriotical. But question is how do they perfom in actual-time?


With similarities all four devices are set up in a manner as possible. All factory reset and functioning without network SIMs. Phones only have apps installed that are relevant to the speed test in real-time, while settings are left exactly as they were out of the box. Playing field is even fair as test conditions go, with the only real differentiating factors being how the device’s internals and the OS work together to execute the provided tasks. Fans running through the initial test of loading and closing apps, can immediately see that Apple’s A9-powered iPhone 6s Plus jumps instantly ahead of the pack.

Final results in front? As usual Apple’s iOS-powered iPhone 6s Plus wins the two rounds by finishing its loading and closing all installed third-party apps – which includes popular titles like Temple Run and Instagram – in a total of one minute and forty-two seconds. When compared to Samsung’s Galaxy S7 Edge, came a second place, pacing eighteen seconds behind the iPhone. The Nexus 6P and Moto X Pure Edition, both rinning Android, breached the two minutes mark with a time of two minutes and two seconds, and two minute and sixteen seconds respectively.

Conclusion here is that even though iPhone 6s Plus ships with the lowest amount of RAM and a lower-spec CPU smokes quad-core powered handsets in this test, but it’s claer that Apple’s dedication to marrying the hardware and software together in the pursuit of performance is playing off. Which, I Don’t Agree With!


Another worth pointing thing is that Moto X Pure Edition, Nexus 6P and the new Galaxy S7 Edge are all rendering Quad-HD 1440p display, compared to the 1080p display on the iPhone 6s Plus. Only sporting a dual-core processor and 2GB of RAM compared to Octa-Core CPU and 4GB RAM in Galaxy S7 Edge, octa-core SoC and 3GB RAM in Moto X Pure Edition, and an octa-core chip with 3GB RAM in Nexus 6P.

Obviously, there’s a lot more to a device than simply opening and closing apps with a stopwatch timing how efficient it is, but considering the majority of users deal with installed apps on a daily basis, this real-world speed test would be a fairly good indication of how each device not only deals with app launches, but also how it handles involking that app from the native multitasking system.

If this video proves one more point then. When it comes to smartphones, specs on paper are only half the story. It’s a real-world performance and benchmarks that really counts. Nevertheless, you can have your own test drive before you go purchase a new mobile hardware.

Point to note: This could not influence you as a realspeed test, because there’s lot indications falling under iPhone 6s Plus performance, and drawbacks already there, and for that you have to check other benchmarking in the future as Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge goes on pre-order and available to purchase from March 11 globally.
