“It was inevitable that Samsung’s latest 2016-released Galaxy Note 7 was going to be compared with Apple’s 2015 iPhone 6s range,” Paul Morris reports for Redmond Pie.

“Has Samsung made enough changes in the underlying hardware and software to allow the Note 7 to compete on-par with other devices on the market?” Morris reports. “We find out in this video which pits the Note 7 against the iPhone 6s in a head-to-head real-world speed test.”

“We would have much preferred to see the Galaxy Note 7 compared against Apple’s iPhone 6s Plus, as that is the Apple device that would most likely compete with Samsung’s latest flagship,” Morris reports, “but even with the 4.7-inch iPhone 6s, we can get a good understanding of how Samsung’s latest hardware and software combination compares to a device that’s pushing close to its twelve month anniversary, and in all honesty, the results don’t speak overly highly of the product that Samsung has built.”

MacDailyNews Take: (smirk)

If it’s not an iPhone, it’s a slow piece of crap.

The facts are that Samsung cannot compete with Apple’s A-series processor designs and they’re saddled with an inefficient third-party operating system. No matter how many cores and extra RAM Samsung throws at the problem, they simply cannot compete. It’s a lose-lose proposition for Samsung as it costs them more, they make less, and even old iPhones still blow away their newest crap!
