With the recent introduction of Samsung Galaxy S23 Ultra The inevitable moment of comparisons against Apple’s iPhone 14 Pro and Pro Max has arrived.
In the end, both smartphones represent the top of the range of their respective platforms, iOS and Android, leaving the Google Pixel to one side.
for decades samsung and Apple live this rivalry of contrasts, where each generation both companies manufacture exceptional terminals for their segment.
Both in their territory more than justify the investment they require and correspond to a very specific profile of users. But even so, one cannot avoid asking this question that is repeated year after year:
What is the fastest smartphone? Samsung’s or Apple’s? In this case, for the year 2023, the comparison is focused between the iPhone 14 Pro and the Galaxy S23 Ultra.
By “fortune” there are various methods to be able to put together a more or less objective confrontation where concrete and delimited parameters are established to contrast them.
Someone, for example, set up a study to see which of the two models was the fastest. And the results are impressive.
Samsung Galaxy S23 Ultra vs. iPhone 14 Pro: which is faster
It turns out that the boys Compare Dialhave carried out a comparative study of speeds between the two flagships, finding that the Samsung Galaxy S23 Ultra is 21.02% slower than the iPhone 14. Since in the study it obtained a record of 1,480 performance points from a single core, while the iPhone 14 Pro clocked in at over 1,874.
In the multicore performance section, Samsung’s new flagship was also 14.86% slower than Apple’s iPhone 14 Pro, with an average of 4,584 against 5,384 points for the terminal under iOS.
This does not mean, under any circumstances, that the Samsung terminal is a turtle. On the contrary, both smartphones are much faster than the average for their segment.
