The iPhone 6 and 6 Plus is Apple’s current flagship smartphone, while the Samsung Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge are Samsung’s, and given that both companies compete rather fiercely with each other, it does not come as a surprise that more often than not that both phones are compared against one another in terms of speed, graphics, display quality, camera quality, and etc.

That being said, YouTuber Adrian Isén has released a video in which he pit all four phones mentioned above against each other in a speed test. Now this isn’t a processor speed test, but rather an internet speed test conducted using WiFi, not carrier internet. Given that all four phones are the latest and greatest from each company, one might expect it would be a close race.

However it is not. As it turns out Apple’s iPhone 6 performed the slowest and clocked download speeds of 101.67Mbps (although the second test it managed to be faster than the iPhone 6 Plus). Its larger sibling the iPhone 6 Plus beat it out marginally at 102.67Mbps. Samsung’s Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge clearly dominated both iPhones, with the Galaxy S6 clocking 154.11Mbps in download speeds while the Galaxy S6 Edge saw speeds of 185.67Mbps.

We should note that these are theoretical speed tests as there are other factors that could affect your browsing speed, but for those who are looking for the best of the best, it looks like the Galaxy S6 Edge is the clear winner here.
