The Samsung Galaxy Note 10+ is the latest and greatest smartphone that the Korean tech giant has to offer now. It features the latest hardware like the Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 chipset and 12GB of RAM. So the question is, how will it fare in terms of speed when pitting it against the iPhone XS Max, a phone that has mostly dominated the speed tests to date.
Turns out the Galaxy Note 10+ is a beast. In a speed test published on YouTube by PhoneBuff, it has revealed that the Note 10+ completely dominates the iPhone XS Max in their speed test. While the iPhone XS Max seems to hold its own early in the test, it was only later in the test with the more resource-heavy apps where it seemed to struggle.
This ultimately allowed the Note 10+ to complete the first round in 1 min 55 seconds, where the iPhone XS Max took 2 minutes and 9 seconds. The second round did not see the iPhone XS Max fare any better where the Note 10+’s 12GB of RAM really came into play, allowing it to finish in 33.95 seconds. The iPhone XS Max, on the other hand, took a total of 50.31 seconds to complete.
We should point out that this does not mean that the iPhone XS Max is a bad or slow phone, but rather if anything, it highlights what a big difference a year in technology makes. The Note 10+ is currently available for order and so far, reviews seem to be pretty positive.
