OnePlus 5 faster than iPhone 7 – The OnePlus 5 from the start-up company OnePlus, which has been available for a few days, is the fastest smartphone from the Chinese manufacturer. Until now, the Apple iPhone 7 Plus in SpeedTests was the fastest smartphone in the world, the OnePlus 5 now seems to be the top.
OnePlus 5 faster than iPhone 7 Plus?
As soon as a new top smartphone starts to trade, speed comparison tests accumulate on other devices such as the Apple iPhone 7 Plus or Samsung Galaxy S8. So far the iPhone 7 Plus was considered the fastest smartphone at all.
Currently, YouTuber David Rahimi compared the OnePlus 5 with the iPhone 7 Plus in a speed test and published a related video on the PhoneBuff channel. At least in some categories, the OnePlus 5 was able to take the lead.
The first category examines how quickly apps can be opened or closed on the OnePlus 5 or iPhone 7 Plus. According to video, the OnePlus 5 seems faster here, because the Apple device the transitions are more animated. Then the blogger tests the RAM management of both smartphones. As a reminder, OnePlus had not released the full RAM usage on the OnePlus 3 despite 6 gigabytes of memory, which meant that apps were always closed in the background. A later update fixed the problem.
Again, the OnePlus 5 with a lead of seven seconds against the iPhone 7 Plus could claim this test. The blogger gives reason for the slow animations of iOS. However, the speed test should take into account that the OnePlus 5 can access the Qualcomm Snapdragon 85 processor with a full 8 GB RAM, while the iPhone 7 Plus only 3 GB of memory is available.
