Even after being armed with the latest hardware, Galaxy S7 is still unable to zip past iPhone 6s Plus, as evidenced in the latest benchmarking run.

Samsung, If You Do Not Fix Your Software, Then Devices Like iPhone 6s Plus Will Always Take Advantage

It was not just Samsung’s Galaxy S7 and Apple’s flagship phablet that participated in the benchmarking run. There were two more Android powered smartphones, Motorola’s Moto X Pure Edition and Google’s Nexus 6P, both of which were released last year. All four devices were factory reset, and were functioning without network SIMs, so that a proper controlled environment was created in order to reduce the inaccuracy of these benchmarking tests.

The objective was to run through an opening and closing of each app in turn in the shortest possible time and despite sporting very impressive hardware underneath its chassis, Galaxy S7 trailed by 18 seconds against iPhone 6s Plus, showcasing that specifications listed on paper are not the only thing that you require in order to be crowned a fast smartphone. However, we know that readers are going to point this out, so we will do that for you.

iPhone 6s Plus features a 1080p while Galaxy S7 sports a 1440p resolution. Samsung’s flagship smartphone will obviously require more firepower to render all of those pixels. However, looking at all the components present inside Galaxy S7, we would have to conclude that a 1440p resolution should have resulted in a minimum amount of difference, and not 18 seconds of it. This is not the first time that Samsung’s high-end device succumbed to Apple’s. When we carried out our exclusive tests and compared iPhone 6s Plus to Galaxy Note 5, the former smoked that as well.


Earlier, before Galaxy S7 was announced, we reported that Samsung and Google were reported to form a partnership in which the advertising tech giant would give the South Korean firm a helping hand in optimizing its TouchWiz interface. Needless to say, either Samsung should take a back seat in incorporating high-resolution displays in its flagship smartphones, or it is high time that both companies decided to work together.
