The Pixel 3 phones started sending to buyers last week, which means that YouTubers have already begun to put the phone through various tests, including the expected speed comparisons against Apple’s iPhone XS series. Unfortunately, things are not good for Google’s new phone if the speed is what you’re looking for on an Android phone. It’s not just that Pixel 3 can not beat Apple’s 2018 iPhones, but also that the new pixel already seems dated in terms of hardware.
Google does not make any benefits by launching new phones at the end of October, as long as these phones are still running on off-the-shelf processors like the Qualcomms Snapdragon series. The 1
0nm 845 chip in Pixel 3 is already “old” considering 7nm chips are available, running all three 2018 iPhones and four new Huawei Mate 20 versions. In addition, Snapdragon 855 (8150) is just around the corner, and it’s also a 7nm chip.
But hardware does not seem to be Pixel 3’s biggest problem right now. As one of the following speed tests shows, the phone does not show a good job of keeping apps in memory, which means wasting the time waiting for the apps to reload. Although it is the purest form of Android available, Pixel 3 is not the fastest phone out there, because the software does not seem to be optimized. As many of you will remember, Apple iPhone’s serious problems with RAM management occurred in IOS 11.
YouTube Channel EverythingApplePro compared Pixel 3 XL to iPhone XS Max in a lot of speed tests and Apple came out the winner in most of them. The actual speed test we usually see for each new phone coming out is also included. Each phone opens the same series of apps in the same order in two turns. The first round measures the device speed and the second round looks at memory management because the same apps are reopened from memory.
Pixel 3 XL can boot faster than iPhone XS Max and some apps will definitely open up faster. But overall, Max is the clear winner. XL can not beat other 2018 flagships, including the Galaxy S9 or OnePlus 6, which is the fastest Android in town.
The video also contains a lot of reference values, but it’s Apple Insider It gives us an even better comparison video for comparison. The following clips show points for Pixel 3 XL and iPhone XS Max in many tests, including Geekbench 4, AnTuTu, Octane 2.0 and GFXBench.
The iPhone XS Max comes out on top of them all and the results are not surprising. After all, the iPhone XS Max powered by 7nm A12 Bionic chip, a processor that has no rivals right now, while the Pixel 3 XL chip does not even exceed last year’s iPhone X and iPhone 8 series.
