Galaxy S9+ Put Against The iPhone X In A Speed Test Comparison

However, we are all wondering how the Samsung Galaxy S9 will compare against the iPhone X in terms of performance. While on paper, the Galaxy S9 beats the iPhone X in terms of internals, but that is not enough to make a decision and real-world performance always has a part to play. YouTuber by the name of EverythingApplePro has conducted a speed test comparison that puts the Galaxy 9+ head to head with the iPhone. Let’s check it out.

If you have already watched the video, you would have known by now that the Galaxy S9+ is running the Snapdragon 845 with 6GB of RAM and the iPhone X with its custom A11 Bionic coupled with 3GB of RAM. It can be seen that the Galaxy S9+ definitely loads some apps faster than the iPhone X. However, the iPhone X shines when it comes to serious processor intensive apps. The S9+ takes a wee bit longer when opening heavy applications.

Apart from this, the raw power originating from the A11 Bionic chip allows the iPhone X to render and export 4K video faster than the Galaxy S9+. In the first round, the iPhone X took 2 minutes and 55 seconds to complete the test which was 9 seconds faster than the Galaxy S9+. However, the additional 3GB of RAM on the S9+ from the iPhone X allows it to load and resume the previously opened apps faster than the latter handset. The Galaxy S9+ keeps most of the data in its memory and resumes from where the app was left off.

The extra RAM allows Galaxy S9+ to win the second round with 44 seconds and the iPhone X completed the test in 1 minute and 10 seconds. We can see where the extra RAM comes in handy. The test showed to sides of the operations. While the iPhone X won the app load time section, the Galaxy S9+ went ahead in keeping the opened apps in memory.
