Testing the speed of the iPhones against newly-launched Android flagship and vice versa is very common these days. In most of the case, the iPhones come out on top. However, in a recent speed test between newly-launched Galaxy S10+ and top-end iPhone XS Max conducted by Youtube channel PhoneBuff, Samsung is finally happy with the outcome.

According to Phonebuff, the South Korean phone maker hasn’t even won any single speed tests against an offering from its rival Apple since it launched the Galaxy Note 5 way back in 2015. The Apple flagship still stays strong after being tested against the Galaxy Note 9, Huawei Mate 20 Pro, Google Pixel 3 XL, and other flagship phones. In this particular speed test, the iPhone XS Max won the first round by 4 seconds, but it fell behind in the second one. Eventually, the Apple flagship couldn’t keep up further into the test and lost against its rival by 16 seconds.

As for specifications, the Galaxy S10 packs the top-of-the-line Snapdragon 855 SoC with 8GB of RAM while powering the XS Max is Apple’s A12 Bionic SoC and 4GB of RAM. PhoneBuff claims that it has run not just one test to ensure that the results would be accurate. As Apple is planning to launch a new iPhone series later in the year, it would be quite interesting to pit the Galaxy S10 phones against the upcoming iPhone devices and see how they perform. But for now, the Galaxy S10+ will be the leader in the speed test.
