This is laughable. Zach Epstein conducts a speed test, refers to it as the ultimate speed test, however, it’s anything but.
Samsung’s brand new flagship smartphones for the first half of 2015 are just weeks away from launching, and Android fans are clearly excited. They have great cause for excitement, of course, since the new Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 edge represent a complete departure for Samsung, which designed its new flagship phones from the ground up.
Uh huh. Designed from the ground up… to look exactly like an iPhone 6. What about the test?
YouTube user AndroidGameE created a speed test that involves opening the same series of apps on both the Galaxy S6 — the edge model, in this case — and the iPhone 6. Both devices are running a timer in the background, and the tests end when the timer is reopened and stopped.
Results of opening apps were virtually identical. So much for an ultimate speed test. Epstein wrote about another test a few weeks ago which pitted the iPhone 6 against a Samsung Galaxy S6 against an iPhone 6, HTC One and Nexus. Samsung won. The test. A multi-core CPU test. Samsung’s latest has more cores to test.
How about a little BGR insight on why customers fled Samsung in 2014 and why iPhone’s sales have skyrocketed? It must be clever marketing.
