Back in 2016 and in the early part of 2017, Apple’s iPhone 7 Plus appeared to dominate pretty much all of the competition when it came to speed tests, at least until the OnePlus 5 came along and we had a new winner. However with the iPhone X and its new A11 Bionic hexa-core chipset, how does the phone fare?
The good news is that while the chipset is fast, it seems that the new OnePlus 5T has no problems keeping up with it in certain aspects. In the video above put together by EverythingApplePro, it pits the OnePlus 5T against the iPhone X in a variety of speed tests. This includes launching apps and seeing how the phones multitask, as well as seeing how long the phones take to turn on, and so on.
Like we said, the OnePlus 5T appears to be faster than the iPhone X in some regards, with the initial part of the test showing that the OnePlus 5T’s massive amount of RAM certainly did help. However there are certain aspects in which the iPhone X managed to beat the OnePlus 5T, such as exporting videos and photos in which it appeared to be faster.
If there’s one thing we noticed in the video is that the new virtual home button on the iPhone X could have contributed to the delay, as it required users to tap on it and swipe up, versus the on-screen buttons of the OnePlus 5T in which users just had to tap it to exit.
