It’s the second part of our ultimate smart phone versus! In this video we’re pitting six of the best smartphones against each other in terms of speed to see which is the fastest.

Rendering video, exporting edited photos, loading levels, we’ve scrapped Wi-Fi and GPS apps in favour of apps that use pure power.

It’s iPhone 7 vs Google Pixel vs Samsung S7 vs HTC 10 vs Sony Xperia XZ vs LG G5

There are 8 different apps to take on…

1. FLAC music player – the phone must load a FLAC file then play and pause the track
2. Boot up Asphalt 8
3. Boot up Fruit Ninja
4. Boot up N.O.V.A 3 then load the first level
5. Export a pre-made project in Adobe Premiere Clip – @1080p and with several filters
6. Export a photo in Snapseed with pre-made filters
7. Open up a heavily layered 3D project in 3DC.io
8. Take a photo with the camera

– Each phone has to complete two laps and reload games that haven’t held their save.
– Each phone is tested after being reset and all background apps have been removed
– Wi-Fi and other connectivity options turned off

Please do let us know what you think of our new intensive speed test, we’ll look into all suggestions and potential apps that you send our way.

    You video is bullshit most normal won't have all those apps open and really putting the phone through those paces. Most 2-3 apps open. Unless you are a hardcore user which most people are not. Most of these smart do have good speeds but when your doing this type of test you are being bias towards certain brands

    @TechRadar Also, you need to remind people of your experiment setup / controls like this guy did: watch?v=b5wUQKr43vo Screen settings and brightness, data settings (airplane mode?), etc.

    @TechRadar Now I see why everyone hated the battery test…cause the iPhone was DEAD last . goddamn Apple fanboys had their confidence destroyed. I still love using my iPhone, Macbook Pro, iPad, etc. but i just want the info. If you made more tests where the iPhone happened to lose, a ton of people would ask you not to do the test. That's super fucking lame. Just show us what actually performs best and worst in every category, including internet, startup and battery.

    @TechRadar don't DROP internet and startup…wtf just do them separate or do the other tests in addition. Those are still technically significant, although startup is less important because we don't turn phones off today.

    the Samsung Galaxy S7 edge probably has the exynos chip so that's why it got 3rd place because the HTC 10 would be able to destroy the Samsung Galaxy S7 edge with the Qualcomm

    Not buying. this because the HTC 10 is faster than the galaxy s7. One thing people need to take into account when looking at this comparison is that the HTC 10 and s7 are both older phones compared to the iPhone 7. IPhone pauses background applications to focus on the task at hand, whil android phones continue executing code. So all those pages and applications being opened are all still running in the background on the Android phones.

    Big fan of android but that iphone crushed every single of these phones. Lets not talk about optimization and stuff, this is how we are going to buy these phones its realistic.

    Low intensity apps: Androids win because although they have don't have as much speed as the iPhone they have enough to get through light apps with the significantly shorter animations.

    High intensity apps: iPhone wins simply because of pure speed.

    So, the fastest android phone on the planet is still about a minute slower than the iPhone.

    That's…well nothing new!

    whoever was using the G5 needs to stop using the side of their finger to open apps. It cost the G5 several seconds because of poor pressing. It's not the phones fault.
