Two of the most popular smartphones on the market not owned by Apple are the Samsung Galaxy S5 and HTC One M8. How do they rate against the new iPhone 6? Its time to take a look, courtesy of PhoneBuff.
In a new video, the website shows that specs dont always translate into real world performance. It comes after a welcome to 2012 iPhone users campaign was launched by Apples competitors, comparing the iPhone 6 to the 2-year-old Nexus 4.
For this test, iPhoneBuff loaded a variety of apps and switched between them on each device. So how does the dual-cored 1GB of RAM on the iPhone 6 compare to the two Android devices with more RAM?
As you can see, the iPhone 6 bests both handsets, especially the Galaxy S5. Recent benchmarks testshave shown similar results.
I’m not all that surprised by what theiPhoneBuff videoshows. The iPhone 6 is the newest of the three. I would expect that the “Samsung Galaxy S6″ and the next-generation HTC One will surpassthe iPhone 6 when they are released in 2015. And then the process will begin again whenApple’s next iPhone is released.
Nonetheless, the video does confirm that specs alone don’t tell the entire story.
