Samsung’s hot new Galaxy Note 7 still isn’t as fast as last year’s iPhone 6s
Yes, the Galaxy Note 7 is gorgeous, and it’s the phablet to beat this year. But the smartphone isn’t the fastest handset around, despite all its cutting-edge tech. It may very well do better in benchmark tests than its Android peers, but when it comes to finally taking down last year’s iPhone in real-world speed tests – something no flagship has been able to do – the Galaxy Note 7 fails miserably.
At this point, it’s not really unexpected to see Apple’s iPhones beat Samsung’s best phones in real-world testing. We’ve seen it time and again. And it’s certainly not a surprise with the Galaxy Note 7, since it features the same hardware used in the Galaxy S7 and S7 edge.
