iPhone 7 vs. Galaxy Note 7 Speed Test

Speed test between the Apple iPhone 7 and the Samsung Galaxy Note 7. The iPhone 7 has Apple's new A10 Fusion chip, while the Note 7 we tested here features the Snapdragon 820 with 4 GB of RAM.With the iPhone 7’s release last week comes an onslaught of YouTube tests. We already watched a scratch resistance and drop test, and now we have one for speed. On YouTube channel PhoneBuff, David Rahimi pitted the iPhone 7 against Samsung’s Galaxy Note 7 in a race to see which phone could open and run various apps, including different games and streaming services, the fastest.

The iPhone 7 lapped the Note 7 and finished loading every app twice before Samsung’s newest phone managed to complete the first round. We already knew the iPhone 7’s A10 processor was supposed to be faster than the A9X in the iPad Pro, but dang. Even though Samsung's phone is slower than the iPhone 7 in this test, users shouldn't notice any real lags. The water-resistant iPhone 7 and 7 Plus live up to their billing when forced to take a dunk, but they still crack up when dropped again and again. Gadget warranty outfit SquareTrade ran Apple's latest through a torture gauntlet, and you can see the results in the video below.
The company tested the new iPhones for water resistance and durability against the Samsung Galaxy Note 7, which has its own unrelated problems with exploding batteries that have led to a recall. All three phones lived up their respective claims of water resistance but suffered a bit of audio muffling afterward, which is pretty typical for a water-resistant device that's taken a bath. The new iPhones were also subject to some serious pressure to see if they bend, and the iPhone 7 and 7 Plus were found to behave exactly the same as the iPhone 6 generation, with the smaller iPhone bending under 170 pounds (77 kilograms) of pressure and the Plus model starting to give way under 180 pounds (82 kilograms). This was a win for the iPhone when you consider that the Galaxy Note 7 cracked and bricked under 180 pounds of pressure. The Note 7 also took more of a beating when run through SquareTrade's tumble bot, which is kind of like a very cruel, colder dryer you really don't want to put your phone through. Half a minute of tumbling scuffed the iPhones' corners and left some small cracks, while the Note 7 suffered some major cracking in the same test.
