The Apple iPhone 6 beat the Samsung Galaxy S5 and HTC One M8 in an app launching speed test performed by PhoneBuff.

Each phone was raced through a series of apps including the camera, photos, web browser,, Photoshop Touch, Google Earth, Temple Run 2, Fifa 14, Smash Hit, and Angry Birds. The series of apps was then opened for a second time to test the multi-tasking abilities of each device.

Take a look at the results in the video below!

My respect Mr. David but anybody that knows only a bit about programming and how this work knows that iphone completely pauses the app on background while android execute a true multitasking, So all those app were running on the back (android) while iphone had everything paused. I wish you could do the test with apps that really keeps running in the back (iphone) like Music player, Internet radio station apps, Skype and some others........then we may have legit results.

It is legit. These are choices made by the companies about how multitasking is handled. ios apps can run in the background if the app maker programmed it to do so. However, if required, it can also be "paused". Android app makers can do it too, or can't they? Anyway, Google designed Android to do multitasking the way they do and so it has an impact. Good or bad, depends on how you use the app, OS & device. In real world use, each has its benefits. In this particular test, it just shows that a user using ios can "resume" a task faster. And that HTC trashes Samsung. So the question shouldn't be why iOS is faster, but why is Samsung's device is so pathetically slower than HTC's?
