Samsung Galaxy S6 vs Apple iPhone 6 vs all Flagships : Real-World Performace Test

The beast, the best- the Samsung’s Galaxy S6, the most radical, most appealing, most staggering flagship Samsung has ever produced has not only brought laurels to the smartphone Giant but has also wooed smartphones customers for its design and the performance it offers. May it be the use of mettle-and-glass sculpted body or the camera setup that thumps the now second best-iPhone 6′ camera, Samsung surely made a bold statement with its new flagship unveiling this year.

Talking of the flagships, one could imagine a series of smartphones lined up from the the Smartphone Giants battling it out with some flagship-killers based on ‘short-on price but not on specs’ acquisition. While at the launch of a smartphone, we may judge all the devices from what comes loaded onto them, be it the hardware or software, but the real-world performance may not always replicate what the specs suggest. So to speak, even the most advance mobile processor can’t alone churn out the best performance unless it’s bundled with the hardware and the software components that all go hand-in-hand to produce the best-in-class overall performance. Thus, we try and bring to you a “Real-World” performance test on all the latest flagships to find the best in the business. What we mean by real-world performance is the disregard to all the hardware and software specs. Rather, for a phone to be really a ‘smart’phone, it must replicate those specs into true performance while being used.

So then, we pit together all the flagships currently available in the market, the Samsung Galaxy S6, the Apple iPhone 6, the LG G4, the HTC One M9, the Google Nexus 6 and the Asus Zenfone 2 to find out which one stands out in this “Real-World” Performance test. First things first, check out the following list of specs that power each of these flagships.


Now then, we compare and investigate the true performer out of these 6 Flagships on the following grounds :

1. PDF Load Time.

2. Camera Open Time.

3. Gaming Performance.

4. Video Editing.

5. Geekbench.

6. Basemark OSII System.

7. Basemark OSII Memory.

8. 3DMark Ice Storm Unlimited.

9. Wifi Speed.

Based on the above 9 aspects, we pit each of these against each other in a battle of flagships with Samsung Galaxy S6 vs Apple iPhone 6 vs LG G4 vs HTC One M9 vs Google Nexus 6 vs Asus ZenFone 2 and bring to you the following chart on how every flagship smartphone gets ranked on the basis of how well they performed in each individual test. Take a look!

Well, well! A shocker! But the truth is out! With Apple’s iPhone 6 just scoring best in only 1 out of the 9 testing aspects, Samsung’s Galaxy S6 is the clear winner and LG’s G4 comes second-best. With a score of 6 on 9, Samsung has surely thumped its authority with a flagship that is not only the best on papers but also a beast in real-world performance. Way to go, Samsung!
