Apple iPhone 12 Pro flexes its muscles in Samsung Galaxy Note 20 Ultra speed comparison
We have already seen how powerful the A14 Bionic is in our review of the iPhone 12, although it may not be the huge leap from the A13 Bionic that Apple originally promised. According to our database, Apple's first 5 nm chip only offers about 6% more than the A13 Bionic, but it has been shown to surpass Samsung's most powerful smartphone, the Galaxy Note 20 Ultra.
Naturally, we are talking about the Snapdragon 865+ edition of the device, which Samsung only sells in select markets. As PhoneBuff demonstrates below, iPhone 12 Pro is significantly faster than the Galaxy Note 20 Ultra in many tasks, despite having half the RAM. It is not all the iPhone's way, but having 6 GB of RAM fewer than Samsung's latest and greatest flagship is not a shortcoming for the iPhone 12 Pro. The iPhone is noticeably faster when opening large documents in Microsoft Word and Excel, for example, although the Galaxy Note 20 Ultra is faster at opening some small apps.
The iPhone 12 Pro managed its biggest win when rendering videos in Adobe Premiere Rush, but the Galaxy Note 20 Ultra edited photos more quickly in Snapseed. Overall, having 6 GB of RAM is enough to comfortably multitask on the iPhone 12 Pro, while the A14 Bionic still holds Qualcomm's best efforts at bay.
