Which flagship is faster, the newly-released Galaxy S8+ or the 2016 iPhone 7 Plus? If you want to get answer to this question, you should probably take a look at the video posted by Phonebuff. The YouTubers put both devices to the test to find out what device is faster in real life.
Below you can compare the app opening time of both devices and make some conclusions. You might guess that the newer smartphone features better hardware, so it tops the iPhone. Well, this is not the case with the S8+.
According to the latest report from IDC, nearly a half of former Galaxy Note 7 units are planning to switch to the iPhone. This seems to be true as Apple reported a record number of Android switchers in the fourth fiscal quarter of 2016. The results of the survey can’t be taken for granted as they include data from only 24 Galaxy Note 7 users. Still, they demonstrate a possibility for Apple to benefit from Samsung’s misfortune.
The iPhone 7 Plus has beaten the Google Pixel in real life speed test. While it is already known that Apple’s flagship device perform better in benchmarks, the real-life testing gives us a better idea of what we can expect from the device during the day-to-day use. Below you can watch a video showing both smartphones undergoing a series of tests posted to YouTube by SuperSaf TV.
We all know that Apple is expected to release the next-generation iPhone next year, possibly in September. As it was mentioned by several reliable insiders earlier this month, the iPhone 7 is expected to get a thinner aluminum body, new processor and display as well as some other noticeable improvements.
With these things in mind, DeepMind together with SvetApple have created a new iPhone concept called the iPhone 7c, which shows a device with a large fullscreen display that allows to view images and other content on the entire front surface of the handset.
The short video depicting the concept is available below, you may take a look right now.
As you already know, Apple is expected to release new handsets, namely, the iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus later this year. These devices will reportedly feature 4.7-inch and 5.5-inch displays, 12-megapixel cameras, new A9 processors, 2GB of RAM and a number of other useful features.
Although we haven’t yet seen Apple's smartphones, which should be unveiled this year, two designers have recently released a new video showing the iPhone 7 concept. This concept can boast of a new A10 processor, wireless charging capabilities and a refreshed look. You can take a look at the next-gen iPhone model below.
According to Apple’s latest patent filing, the guys from Cupertino have recently created a new material that looks and feels like metal, but actually is a frequency-transparent plastic. This invention can possibly allow Apple to get rid of the antenna bands that can be found on the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus and create a smartphone with an incredibly sleek design. Below you may take a look at the mockup of the handset made of this new material compared to the iPhone 6.
A new interesting video has recently appeared on the Internet. This video shows us three flagship devices, namely, Apple’s iPhone 6, Samsung’s Galaxy S6 and HTC’s One M9 Plus compared to each other in terms of speed and performance.
The author of the short clip decided to use several applications to test the launch speed and the performance of each high-end smartphone. As can be seen in the video below, the iPhone 6 turned out to be the most efficient device. Samsung Galaxy S6 was nearly identical from the point of view of performance, while One M9 Plus was noticeably slower than the aforementioned devices. And that is strange since this handset has 3GB of RAM.
According to the latest rumors shared by reliable insiders, Apple’s next-generation iPhone may get the support of new technology, which was first introduced in the Apple Watch and which is called Force Touch. However, contrary to the recent reports, the handset won’t boast of dual camera system.
Almost every week, a new rumor about Apple’s next-generation iPhone appears on the Internet. Some insiders believe this will be a smartphone very similar to the existing iPhone 6 or iPhone 6 Plus. There are also such people, who don’t wait till Apple announces a new smartphone. They just imagine, how the new handset may look like and create their own concepts.
Below you may take a look at the new concept of the device called the “iPhone 6c”, which features a colorful plastic back panel reminiscent of the one Apple’s iPhone 5c had. The concept was created by 3DFuture and I must admit it looks impressive.
How fast is iPhone 6 compared to other popular smartphones? PhoneBuff performed a serious of real tests.
Each phone was raced through a series of apps including the camera, photos, web browser, Dictionary.com, Photoshop Touch, Google Earth, Temple Run 2, Fifa 14, Smash Hit, and Angry Birds. The series of apps was then opened for a second time to test the multi-tasking abilities of each device.
