Comparisons are often one of the first performance tests that receive most high-end handsets when they hit the market, where Samsung and Apple are the undisputed kings. On August 23 the Galaxy Note 8 was introduced, a terminal that had already filtered almost all its official characteristics, so again the Samsung keynote was a mere procedure without major importance, contrary to what happens with the from Apple. In this article we are going to show you a comparison in which we can see how they render the Galaxy Note 8 with 6 GB of RAM and the processor Snapdragon 835 and the iPhone 7 Plus with 3 GB of RAM and the A10.
As usual with this type of test, the guys at EverythingApplePro have used applications such as Snapchat, Google Maps, Instagram, PS Express, Mario … very light applications in addition to games that require high power graphics processor like Asphalt and Grand Theft Auto . Unlike other terminals, we can see how the 6 GB of RAM helps and much to Note 8 when it comes to keeping most applications open without having to start them again from scratch in the second round.
In the first round, we see how both phones have been practically at par until it opens an application to edit video, where the Galaxy Note 8 takes much longer to encode the video than the iPhone 7 Plus, it is noted that the processors Qualcomm still have a long way to go if they want to get closer to the performance of Apple’s processors. Also you can also notice that Android not designed for a specific hardware like iOS.
It would be interesting to have done this test with the Samsung Exynos processor, so if the performance is similar to the Qualcomm 835 or looks more like the Apple A10. The time spent by the Galaxy Note 8 is 5 minutes and 6 seconds while the iPhone 7 Plus performs the same process in 3 minutes and 21 seconds.
