When Apple announced the new iPhones, many were quick to make fun of Apple and the hardware specs under the iPhone 6’s hood. After all we are talking about a dual-core processor with 1GB of RAM, versus today’s Android phones which sport quad/octa-core chipsets with 2GB of RAM or more.
That being said, in theory Android devices should be blazing past the iPhone 6 in terms of performance, right? Well the folks at Phone Buff have decided to put it to the test in the video above in which they compared the iPhone 6, the Samsung Galaxy S5, and HTC One M8 against one another in a speed test.
All phones were resetted before the test and connected to the same WiFi network to ensure similar internet connectivity speeds. The phones were then put through their paces and were made to load webpages and apps one after the other in an “obstacle course”. The idea is to see how fast websites can load and how fast apps load, as well as how fast apps can continue running after being closed and reopened.
Prior to this test, the folks at Phone Buff found that the HTC One M8 was the winner amongst the phones they had tested, but with the introduction of the iPhone 6, it looks like we have a new winner. The HTC One M8 comes in second place while the Galaxy S5 trails pretty far behind. So, what do you guys think of this test? Fair?
