PhoneArena says that the Exynos 7420 tops in the A8 in multi-core benchmarks but that the A8 wins in single-core tests. We'll publish these comparison benchmarks once there are more Galaxy S6 benchmark results to average out. Instead of posting synthetic tests, the site decided to compare real-life experience when it comes to opening the most used stock apps on a phone, like the contacts, messaging, camera and so forth.
As you can see in the video below, the two phones are almost neck-and-neck when it comes to app launching speeds, which is more of a tribute to the top-shelf RAM and storage tech in the S6 edge, since Samsung's TouchWiz overlay is usually quite heavy to push around, especially on a Quad HD display like the one in the S6 edge.
Take a look at the video below and let us know what you think in the comments...
