Everyone appears to be obsessed with speed, now more than ever. We want to do everything faster than the other man, due to the fact that faster is better. Typically, anyhow.

So this fixation with speed undoubtedly spills over into the works of customer electronics, with smartphones in certain ripe for speed-based competition.

We’ve revealed you videos in the past of different flagship smartphones being executed their rates in an attempt to decide which is the fastest and, presumably, the very best. If just things were always that easy.

Having already shown you a video comparing the stopwatch-based exploits of the Samsung Galaxy S6 and iPhone 6 when compared to the HTC One M9, this time around we see that M9 replaced by the more recent HTC One M9 Plus design which packs an octa-core 2.2 GHz processor. In the last test, the HTC One M9 came out on top with a time of 1 minute 27 seconds, with the iPhone 6 coming in 2nd at 1 minute 34 seconds, and the Galaxy S6 completing last with a time of 1 minute 37 seconds.

So, how was it this time around?

Well, the test consisted of all three phones – – Galaxy S6, iPhone 6 and the One M9 Plus – being utilized to launch a collection of the exact same apps with the time being recorded. Following that, the apps are then refilled once again to check how multitasking works as far as app launching is concerned. None of this is overly clinical, however it needs to give you a smart idea of who the King of capital is.

Spoiler: it’s not the HTC, and the iPhone 6 is super fast at waking multitasking apps up.

In both the initial app launching and subsequent relaunching, the One M9 Plus lagged being the iPhone 6 and Galaxy S6 which is no excellent if you’re trying to find the finest of the very best. The finest course of to take is to examine the video out for yourselves and after that decide whether it implies anything to you, particularly if your purchasing choice hasn’t been made yet.

We wouldn’t wish to base anything on the strength of this video alone, no matter how bad things search for the HTC, but it’s clear to us that both Samsung and Apple have fast devices on their hands.

HTC less so.
