SHOOTOUT: iPhone XS Max versus top Android smart phones

Posted October 19th, 2018 by rob-ART morgan, mad scientist

Today the iPhone XR can be preordered. It has the same A12 processor as the iPhone XS Max, so we decided to celebrate by comparing the Geekbench CPU scores of the iPhone XS Max with the top Android smart phones.

GRAPH LEGEND
Apple iPhone XS Max = 2018 iPhone XS Max, A12 Bionic processor, 4G of LPDDR4X memory
Apple iPhone X = 2017 iPhone X, A11 Bionic processor, 3G of LPDDR4X memory
Samsung Galaxy S9+ = Samsung Galaxy S9+, Octa-Core Processor, 6GB of LPDDR4X memory
Razer Phone 2 = Razer Phone 2, Qualcomm Snapdragon 845, 8GB LPDDR4X memory
Google Pixel 3 XL = 2018 Google Pixel 3 XL, Qualcomm Snapdragon 845, 8GB LPDDR4X memory

Geekbench 4 CPU
The OVERALL score is a combination of integer, floating-point, and memory performance. (HIGHEST Score = FASTEST)

Geekbench 4 GPU Compute
The GPU various tests range from image processing to computer vision to number crunching. Android phones use RenderScript. Apple phones use Metal. (HIGHEST Score = FASTEST)

ANALYSIS
The iPhone XS Max is the clear winner in all three categories. The GPU score is TWICE as fast as the Android phones!

Last year's iPhone X is also faster than all three top Android smart phones.
