“Apple has taken another swipe at Samsung by being named ‘the fastest phone ever’ by Which? magazine,” Victoria Woollaston reports for The Daily Mail.

“Researchers independently tested the processing speeds and performance of the latest phones from Apple, Samsung, HTC and LG. Processing speed determines how quickly the phones can open apps, play videos and games, multitask and more,” Woollaston reports. “Apple’s iPhone 5S came top of list, ahead of LG’s G2 in second. Samsung’s Galaxy S4 came third.”

“HTC’s One handset was fourth, ahead of the iPhone 5C. The Samsung Galaxy S4 Mini was fifth, while HTC’s One Mini scored the lowest,” Woollaston reports. “iPhone 5S has broken all records in [Which? magazine's] processor benchmarking tests… ‘As our tests show, more cores do not necessarily mean better performance,’ explains Which? in a blog post.”
