After the usual information bombardment in these cases, it is difficult that you still do not know but, just in case, the new Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8 + from Samsung have already officially come out for sale and with it, it is time to perform multiple comparisons that are also habitual in these circumstances, especially with respect to its maximum rival that, in this case, would be the iPhone 7 Plus.
Youtuber David Rahimi from PhoneBuff channel carried out a very interesting comparison in which it compares the management of RAM between both devices. The result, as you can see below, shows that not everything is a matter of numbers.
Currently, the iPhone’s top rival continues to be Samsung and its new Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8 + devices. Both terminals, we can not deny them, are incredibly beautiful in terms of design, offer components and features of great quality and, why not say, have certain features that many users want to see in a future iPhone and that, without a doubt, we will end seeing.
With its new flagships, the smallest for the moment, Samsung has shown that it is able to continue doing things well, seems to have left behind the happy chapter of Note 7 and, above all, has not been resentful, as the reserves of The new terminals are being 30% superior to those of its predecessor. However, not so the memory management of the same as, as we will see, remains below the iPhone 7 Plus, despite having 1GB of additional RAM.
For a long time, and even today, users of any Apple team have praised the high degree of efficiency and performance of our devices, noted that this was because operating system and hardware were designed to perfectly match the one with the other. Thus (along with other factors of software and also hardware) an iPhone could be faster than an Android, despite including a smaller RAM. This is precisely what the PhoneBuff channel’s youtuber has revealed once again.
With the departure of a new terminal like Samsung’s Galaxy S8 +, the question of performance, speed, efficiency always comes up. With 4 GB of RAM, it would be easy, and almost logical, to assume that the South Korean smartphone was faster than the iPhone 7 Plus, which has 3 GB of RAM. However, as we will see in the following video, this is not so.
In this RAM management comparison, keep in mind that the Galaxy S8 + from Samsung is powered by an octa-core processor Snapdragon 835 from Qualcomm, while the iPhone 7 Plus has an Apple A10 Fusion quad-core processor .
In tests that have been made by David Rahimi, the Galaxy S8 + and an iPhone 7 Plus was put side by side and timed its speed based on the features of processor and RAM already mentioned. Two rounds have been made. In the first, a series of applications have been opened from scratch, one after another. In this phase the iPhone 7 Plus has proved to be faster completing the lap in 1 minute and 13 seconds, compared to 1 minute and 24 seconds of the Galaxy S8 +. Then the same series of applications is launched, but this time from the RAM. The end result is that the iPhone 7 Plus is faster than the Galaxy S8 +, having completed both rounds with about 38 seconds ahead.
Therefore, the tests prove, again, something that has been saying for a long time: more robust hardware does not necessarily imply better performance.
