The Galaxy Note 7 is quite possibly the fastest Android you can buy right now, but it has a hard time keeping up with the iPhone. We’ve already watched it get beaten by the iPhone 6s, but Samsung’s new phablet is well and truly embarrassed by the iPhone 7.
The comparison carried out by PhoneBuff doesn’t just look at benchmarks for these two devices; it actually puts them through a real-world test loading common apps and games like Camera, Photos, Asphalt 8, and Angry Birds.
As you’ll see in the video below, Apple’s new A10 Fusion chip makes light work of it all, completing a “lap” of loading 14 apps in just over 1 minute and 14 seconds. In comparison, it takes the Note 7, which is powered by Qualcomm’s latest Snapdragon 820 chip, over 2 minutes.
By the time the second lap is over, the Galaxy Note 7 is well over 1 minute behind the iPhone 7. Check it out for yourself:
This is yet another testament to Apple’s incredible A-series processors, which have been outpacing rival chips for several years now, despite typically having fewer cores. It’s also worth noting that the iPhone 7 has only 2GB of RAM, while the Galaxy Note 7 has 4GB.[via PhoneBuff]
