The other day a video compared the speed of Apple’s new iPhone Xs Max against that of the Samsung Galaxy Note 9, in which it was clear that the victor was Apple’s new iPhone. Now a new speed test has surfaced, this time by the folks over at PhoneBuff in which it seems to confirm the results of the earlier test.

There are some differences in the results of the tests, in which the first test showed how the iPhone Xs Max struggled with some apps at the start, but when it came to games it seemed to load them up pretty fast. In PhoneBuff’s video, that doesn’t seem to be the case as all apps on the iPhone Xs Max loaded faster than that of the Note 9.

Overall the test found that in the first round of opening apps, the iPhone Xs Max took a time of 1 minute and 49 seconds, while the Note 9 took 2 minutes and 12 seconds. When it came to reopening the apps, the extra RAM in the iPhone Xs Max proved to be useful as it seemed that the phone did not really struggle that much and took an extra 43 seconds.

However the Note 9’s 8GB of RAM proved its worth as the handset took an extra 36 seconds to complete the second round. However overall the iPhone Xs Max took 2 minutes and 33 seconds, while the Note 9 took 2 minutes and 48 seconds, resulting in the iPhone Xs Max being the overall winner.
