Samsung Galaxy Note10+ handily defeats Apple iPhone XS Max in a speed test

The Samsung Galaxy Note10+ beat the Apple iPhone XS Max in the PhoneBuff speed test by a whole 30 seconds.

If you're familiar with the PhoneBuff-styled speed test, you know this is a big deal. And if you're not familiar, it uses an AI-trained robot to simulate the same actions on both phones, opening a bunch of apps and performing tasks for one lap, and then re-opening all of the apps to see if the phone has kept them in the RAM.

Interestingly the Galaxy Note10+ was faster to open most of the games and didn't fall behind the iPhone XS Max in any of the tasks. And on the second lap it managed to use its 12GB of RAM to outdo the 4GB iPhone XS Max and claim the top spot alongside the OnePlus 7 Pro.

Here's the full video.

I have a Note9. In my region, they sell the Exynos 9810 version, but I got the SD845 version instead. It's 4 months old, and still performs really fast, specially after Android 9 update.
