Galaxy S10 Vs iPhone XS: Benchmarks Show Apple’s 2018 Flagship Beats Samsung’s Upcoming 2019 Flagship In Performance

The next big flagship phone announcement for 2019 will come from Samsung, with the Galaxy S10 and Galaxy S10+ set to be announced at an event on February 20th. We may not have to wait that long to know how fast it will be though, with Slashleaks sharing what are claimed to be performance benchmarks of the two phones.

According to the numbers shared by Slashleaks, the Galaxy S10+, with its new Smapdragon 855 CPU, scores 3413 in the single core test and 10256 in the multi-core. Those numbers are pretty high, thanks to that CPU and the 6GB of RAM that the phone will ship with.

However, they don’t manage to beat the scores that the 2018 iPhones managed, which will be a disappointment for Samsung. For comparison’s sake, the iPhone XS manages a score of 4797 in the single core test and 11264 in multi core.

That should perhaps not come as a huge surprise given the fact that the older iPhone scores have surpassed newer Android scores in the past.

However, as we all know, synthetic benchmarks don’t always equate to real world performance, so we’ll have to wait and see whether this means anything when the phones start to appear in the hands of users.

The reason Apple is able to make its phones perform so well is the use of in-house designed chips, with the A12 used in the iPhone XS, XS Max, and XR performing particularly well.

We’ll have to see what Samsung pulls out of the bag when the new flagships are announced next month, and we can’t wait to take the Galaxy S10 for a spin for ourselves.
