iPhone 7 Beats Galaxy Note 7 in Real-Life Speed Test [Video]



Apple’s iPhone 7 is faster than the Galaxy Note 7 in real life. The results of the recent speed test performed by PhoneBuff prove that the newly-released phone is much better at opening apps, editing videos, and keeping open games and applications active in the background.

PhoneBuff performed a test consisting of a set of typical everyday tasks. The final result of the iPhone 7 is 1 minute 40 seconds, whereas that of the Galaxy Note 7 is equal to 3 minutes 14 seconds. This difference becomes even more surprising if we take a look at the specs of both devices.

Currently, the iPhone 7 is available for purchase on several markets, while the sales of the Samsung Galaxy Note 7 have been paused due to the problem with the exploding battery of the device.
