After its August launch, Samsung’s Galaxy Note 20 Ultra with Snapdragon 865+ chip and 12GB RAM has become the fastest smartphone when it comes to app load speed tests. However, now that Apple releases the iPhone 12 and 12 Pro with the new A14 Bionic chip, it has regained its crown.
PhoneBuff notes that it’s been 20 months since the iPhone was the fastest smartphone in his tests. And the A14 Bionic chip is Apple’s first chip to be built on a 5nm process that offers a performance boost over the iPhone 12 Pro (same chip on all four models) before Samsung’s Galaxy Note 20 Ultra.
Ironically, after Apple launched the iPhone 12, along with mocking the company for ditching the charger, Samsung said its Galaxy phones had the “best camera, battery, performance, memory”. and more.
While app load-style speed tests like these aren’t the only reason to choose which smartphone to choose from, it’s a good illustration of how competitive the market is and how efficient it is. of the iPhone when Apple makes both hardware and software.
For example, Apple’s iPhone 12 Pro beat the Galaxy Note 20 Ultra with a touch time of more than 17 seconds in two test rounds and has 6GB of RAM compared to the Note’s 12GB RAM. The tight integration Apple can do with the new A14 chip, the rest of the iPhone 12 and iOS hardware remains a strong advantage.
Another interesting aspect is that the iPhone 12 Pro starts at $ 300 less than the list price of the Galaxy Note 20 Ultra ($ 200 lower compared to the 12 Pro Max). And the iPhone 12 and 12 mini both have an even cheaper A14 chip.
