We were impressed enough with the concept in this video that we just had to share it. A crafty YouTube blogger named AndroidGameE created a speedtest which is designed to showcase real-world performance instead of the typical number crunching benchmarks. It does this by leveraging opening and closing a number of real-world apps during a timed test. While it would be easy to poke holes in the methodology, it is still a remarkably simple way to help gauge what the user experience might be like.
Even better is that we get to see this "real world benchmark" demonstrated with a titanic battle between the ultra-popular iPhone 6 and the hot new Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge. Throughout most of the tests, the Galaxy S6 Edge tends to handle things faster and smoother than the iPhone 6, but in the end, the final "timed difference" wasn't that huge, and the iPhone 6 nearly catches up with the Galaxy S6 Edge. Check out the video and let us know what you think.
