Google Pixel 3 XL vs. iPhone XS Max Speed Test

What’s up, guys?Today we’ll be speed test between the best phone from Google and the Pixel three XO going up against the best phone from Apple in the iPhone 10 as Max taken a look at the spec sheets.

The iPhone is powered by the 812 bionic chip, coupled with four gigabytes of round while the pixel is rocking Qualcomm Snapdragon eight forty five.

And just like the iPhone, it also is packing four gigabytes of RAM, which, you know, I had to say is kind of surprising that Google went with four gigabytes instead of something like six, which most other Android phones have.

But at the same time, the pixel probably is running a leaner version of Android compared to those other flagships.

And it’s one of the few Android phones that’s actually running on Android nine point o.

So the question is, will the pixel software optimizations be enough to overcome its seemingly limited hardware? Or will the iPhone tell us Macs log yet another victory against its Android competition? Let’s find out.

All right. We’ll get things going by starting the stopwatches on each phone and then jump into the first row where the Pixel three is able to get the step over the iPhone, loading both Facebook and Starbucks at a faster rate as both owners move on to word each is loading the same exact 500 page documents with the iPhone being able to not only catch up to the pixel, but to pass it, moving onto Excel with a tennis match just blowing through.

It’s an already moving on to the second row. So an impressive start for the iPhone here in the first stop, but the pixel three still hasn’t fallen too far behind with it.

Joining the iPhone here in SNAP Seed where just like the iPhone, it’ll edit that selfie that it just took by adding a filter. An expert in the image out to storage where it looks at the pixel, did complete that task at a slower rate along the iPhone to improve on its lead as it just rips through premier and already starts working on the browser test with the pixel expert in the video clip and premiere at a slower rate as well, putting it a full out behind the iPhone midway through this first lap.

So things aren’t looking so good for the Pixel three, but if you could manage to avoid giving up any more ground to the iPhone here in the gaming row, it does have a shot at making a comeback in the last row where we’ll be loading more lightweight applications like Spotify and ESPN.

But unfortunately, that doesn’t look like it’s going to happen with the pixel 3x.

So taking significantly longer to load both subway surfers and flip diving and with things not looking any better here in fit the fat along the iPhone tennis max to pull even further ahead as it finishes up with Bullah force and moves on to the last row where after quickly loading up Spotify, the iPhone is on its way to turning that one.

I lead. It has over the pixel into a full blown and two app lead with it already moving on to Netflix as the pixel struggles to finish up with Bullah force, letting the iPhone capture its biggest lead so far in the speed test, finishing the first slide with a time of one minute and forty six seconds.

So as the iPhone starts working on the second lap, the pixel is working on finishing the first, with it taking slightly longer to load ESPN, but being able to load both Netflix and Amazon at a slightly faster rate, finishing the first lap 16 seconds later with a time of two minutes and two seconds.

While the iPhone has been doing an excellent job keeping all the apps open and ready to go.

Unfortunately, the same cannot be said of the pixel, with it failing to keep Bullah force open, which is the first time in a really long time that we’ve seen a phone failed to keep an app open so early.

But we’ll see if the trend continues as the pixel moves on to fit the facts.

Where once again, it fails to keep the app open, allowing the iPhone to cruise to the finish line with a total time of two minutes and 30 seconds.

And as fast forwarding the pixel to the end where it fails to keep every single app open. Finishing the test over a minute later would a total time of three minutes and 35 seconds, making the winner by a huge margin.

The iPhone 10 as max. In case you’re wondering, we ran this test multiple times on each phone and the results here were consistent. Anyways, that is it for me in this article.

Galaxy Note 9 vs. iPhone X Drop Test

The Galaxy No. Nine and iPhone 10 are both very expensive smartphones. And while they’re all glass designs do look nice and enable certain features like wireless charging.

It obviously makes them much more susceptible to completely shattering in the event of a drop.

Now, both Samsung and Apple have taken some steps in order to make these all glass phones a little bit more durable. Apple is using what they claim to be the strongest glass ever in a smartphone.

And Samsung has been using a new, stronger aluminum that supposedly helps reduce the total amount of shock that sent to the glass when it drops. So today we’re gonna be testing both of these phones. Side-By-Side to see which thousand. Our flagship is actually more durable. Let’s get right into it.

For the first time ever, build a new Web site, run on your phone. In just minutes with artificial design intelligence. No robot required.

Big thanks to Wick’s for sponsoring this article with their A.I., building a site on your phone is as simple as answering a few questions, uploading some photos and picking the theme that best matches your style.

Or if you want more fine control, you can use the dragon drop ed on your computer like I did to get everything looking just the way you want. Either way, you can start your own website for free at the link below.

Round number one backdrop in three, two, one. So after that backdrop, the good news is both phones still remain fully functional. But the bad news, at least for the No. Nine, is that the rear glass is completely shattered.

It looks like the No.9 took the bulk of the damage at the bottom left corner with the kind of spider webbing up all across the back.

The iPhone 10, on the other hand, did really, really well with its only damage being a tiny crack in the glass.

That’s kind of hard to see here on camera and a small scuff mark on that big old protruding camera lens that may have actually helped the iPhone break its fall.

Either way, it’s an easy win for the iPhone 10 in round number one.

Round number two, corner drop three to one. Neither phone took too much damage from that corner drop. However, the No.9 does suffer quite a few scuff marks on his blue aluminum frame, which, you know, while not significant, it definitely looks worse than the scratches on the iPhone 10 stainless steel giving the iPhone the slight edge here in round number two.

Round number three, face drop in and three to one.

After that bass drop, both bones have their screens cracked. The No.9 suffers the bulk of its damage at the bottom writes with some severe spider webbing up along the right edge.

While the iPhone tends, damage comes mainly to its top left corner with the rest of its screen remaining largely unaffected, giving it the win once again here in round number three bonus round, with both bones still remaining fully functional after our 10 point inspection.

We enter the bonus round where we’ll be dropping them up to 10 times from just under five feet to put the impact and shock resistance up each phone to the test.

Last time the iPhone Ten was only able to survive five drops before its home gesture completely failed to respond, deeming the phone pretty much unusable. Let’s see if the Galaxy No. Nine can do any better. Three, two, one.

All right. Drop number two. And three, two, one.Oh, baby. I definitely saw some more glass fly out of there.And the phone’s still working. This is crazy. That this phone still works.

And three to you know, like, I’m so convinced every time I check it out, when I turn this thing around, it’s not gonna be working. But it is. Three, two, one. What’s that even sound? The worst of all, the drop. So I’m pretty confident this thing’s gonna work.

Can I be wrong? I turned it off on accident. Nope. Still works. Look at that. Wow. Through the eyes and words. Out of the actually interesting test. Go home. That’s as. Fireworks display still fully functional. We can make a call. So it it passes from them before and press it.

So after conducting yet another ten point inspection, testing everything from the screen and the buttons to the speakers and sensors, everything remains fully functional, even that variable aperture.

Sure, the phone doesn’t look pretty at this point, and we’ll most definitely cut your finger if you attempt to use it.

But the fact that Samsung made the No.9 of this resistant to impact internally is very impressive. All right.

So with four rounds in the books, let’s take a look at the scorecard.

And the first round, the iPhone Tanah just crushed the No.9 coming away almost unscathed in the seconds. The stainless steel frame on the iPhone was able to outshine the no nines aluminum while in the third. Both phones cracked.

But the No. Ninth damage was worse. And finally, in the fourth round, the No.9 was able to turn things around with an impressive showing of impact and shock resistance. But in the end, it was the iPhone.

Those able to talion a higher overall score, making it the winner in this drop test.

If you guys want to see how the Galaxy, No.9 and the iPhone 10 rank compared to the other phones that we’ve tested.

Dark Mode vs. Light Mode Battery Test

Lots of guys, And dark mode is pretty much everywhere. It was the highlight feature and I was 13.

Google brought it to Android with Android 10 and countless hours of engineering have been spent on bringing dark mode to third party apps.

And also, the obvious benefit of being easier on the eyes in a dark environment is dark mode is supposed to bring with its better battery life. I’ll use some phones with Olá displays like the ones I have here due to the way these screens work where black pixels are actually turned off instead of being backlit like on LCD displays.

So I decided to put her robots to work and figure out like just how much of a difference in battery life Doric mode actually brings.

So we can decide once and for all if it’s actually worth it. Maybe the only sound sweeter than an iPhone eleven pro Macs being unboxed is that of a giveaway.

And all you have to do to enter our iPhone eleven pro Macs giveaway is follow us ads, phone love on Instagram. And that’s literally it.

This giveaway is international and we’ll be announcing the winner on November 10th with all the links and info you need Downbelow.

All right. So we’re running this specific battery tests on the iPhone tennis Max.

But again, the benefits of dark mode should apply similarly to any phone with an old display. Now, we’ve controlled for all the variables that we could just like we do in all of our tests. And of course, that includes equally calibrating the screen brightness to 200 nitz.

In fact, the only difference here is that on the left dark mode is enabled, whereas on the right it’s the same exact iPhone only with the normal or light mode enabled.

And after two hours of going back and forth with our automated chapatis, we already see a pretty big difference.

Dark mode helped the iPhone drop down to a healthy eighty eight compared to eighty three on the late mode enabled iPhone here and Twitter. It’s the same setup. Once again, we’re just on our Twitter profile at above and scrolling through it where after two hours of doing so on each phone, the difference gets even bigger.

The iPhone with DARG mode enabled dropped by only 16 percent down to 72, whereas the lay mode iPhone had a twenty six point drop all the way down to 57 percent.

So just four hours into this battery test and dark mode has the iPhone ahead by 14 percentage points here in YouTube, you can see that the dark mode that YouTube uses isn’t completely blacked out like in the previous tests. It’s more of a dark gray tone.

But Google themselves say that even dark colors like gray can reduce battery consumption.

Just so you can test dark mode, that’s exactly what we see.

The dark mode enabled iPhone dropped by twenty nine percent compared to the thirty seven point drop on the light mode enabled iPhone. So a twenty three percentage point advantage, just six hours of screen time in and here in maps.

We’re looking to add another two hours of screen time. But after just one hour and 33 minutes, the lay mode enabled iPhone died.

Now, unfortunately, we didn’t check the battery percentage on the dark MOAD iPhone.

Exactly. At this point, since the test was designed to run for two hours and I didn’t expect light mode one to die so quickly. But our calculations have that roughly 30 percent based on the fact that after another 27 minutes and maps, it was at a healthy 26 percent. So needless to say, that’s a huge difference.

Roughly 30 percent battery on the dark mode enabled iPhone at the point at which the light mode enabled iPhone died.

But before you go off and enable dark mode, I do want to point out that’s a we tested just apps that have dark mode enabled.

That’s all the apps or websites that you use on your phone will have dark mode. So don’t expect this extreme of results. And B, the screen brightness that we tested out was at 200 nets. And in our other tests at one, it’s which is closer to what you’d have indoors.

Two hours on Twitter saved only five percent with dark mode, whereas that same exact test at 300 nets or closer to what you’d have outdoors, Dirk Mode saved twelve percent.

But either way, it’s been proven dark road, at least if you have an old display, can save you some juice. That is it for me in this article.

Apple’s Strategy To Win Over Android Users

Apple and Google have been competing since Android was first announced.

But over the last year or so, it really feels like Apple has been turning the heat up on this competition in what seems to be a concentrated effort on stealing Android users away from Google and given the state of the industry.

This makes perfect sense. Most people already have a smartphone and they’re upgrading those smartphones less often.

So for a company like Apple, who obviously doesn’t want to continue to see a dip in their sales figures, the gigantic market share that Android has over Iowas presents itself as a huge opportunity.

And the moves that Apple has been making to win Android users over it has never been more obvious than in I was 14, where they’re now only doubling down on the relative strengths of Privacy and Long-Term Supports.

But they introduced a number of new features that were pretty much copying pace straight from Android.

This has led to plenty of social media posts where Android fans are talking about how Android has had these features for years.

But I think for Apple, that’s exactly the point.

On the one hand, to giving every Android user one last reason not to switch to the iPhone, while on the other hand, even though Android users are technically making fun of the iPhone, they’re simultaneously providing free advertising for the fact that some of their favorite Android features are making their way to the iPhone.

But all of this didn’t actually start with. I was 14. I think the first big move the apple made, at least for me, was when I was thirteen point one, when Apple finally brought real automation to the iPhone.

Be a series shortcuts. Now, before this updates, automation on the iPhone was super limited and it was just way better on Android. It was the main reason why I typically preferred Android phones over iPhones.

But in Iowa, thirteen point one Apple, arguably even the playing field.

Of course, maybe that only matters to a small percentage of Android users like me with I was 14, though. Apple is going after the mainstream users.

Whenever you hear someone talk about Android and why they like it, at some point or another, you’re going to hear the word customization and why Android is still miles ahead in this area. I was 14.

Does significantly narrow the gap by simply giving users the ability to add, which is right on their home screens.

And by finally having a juncture for all those apps that don’t need prominent placements, both things, by the way, that Android has had since day one. I was 14, finally offers more control over the homescreen.

And I think it removes a major pinpoint that many Android users had when considering making the switch. But Apple didn’t just stop at automation and customization. Another area where Android has always had the advantage over Iowas is in multitasking.

And again, while Android is still has the edge in this area I was 14 has significantly narrowed the gap with picture in picture.

Finally, letting iPhone users do things like watching article while taking notes or being on a video call while watching article.

Add to that the ability to now said defaults, apps for email and browser, and all the sudden Android users that were on the fence about switching can be right at home on an iPhone. By setting G.M. and Chrome as their default apps and with new backed out feature, the iPhone even gets better.

Integration with Google assistance before using the Google assistant on iPhone was a high friction process.

You had a swipe out of the app that you’re in and find the assistant wherever it was on your home screen. But now you can set it where a simple double tap on the back.

The iPhone launches the Google assistant automatically just from the home screen.

But in any app, even from the lock screen, which I think is a pretty big deal, I mean, we’re talking about automation, customization, multitasking, default apps and the tighter integration with the Google assistant.

These were all features that pretty much two years ago were exclusive to Android.

But with I was 14, that’s no longer the case. Now, I’m not saying that Android is still isn’t ahead in all of these areas, but Apple has, again, definitely narrowed the gap.

And with them being more aggressive with pricing, with phones like the iPhone, Essy having the A13 bionic chip and with Apple supporting their phones with software updates for like five or six years compared to the two or three that you’re lucky to get with most Android phones.

Honestly, I don’t know if there’s ever been a time where it’s been easier for a lifetime Android user to make the switch. But what do you guys think?

Do you think these new features are going to get people to switch over to life on more, or do you think Android advantages are just way too strong for that to happen? Let me know. Downbelow and the comments.

Either way, though, I think ultimately this is good for you and me, the consumer, since I was getting better. And as a result, Andrew is going to get better to.

120 Hz vs. 60 Hz Battery Test

Lots of guys, And without a doubt, hi, refresh rate screens have been the biggest trend in smartphones in 2020, with high end phones at the ESC twenty series having them and even budget phones getting in on the action.

And look, the benefit of having a high refresh rate is pretty simple by refreshing the screen more times per seconds. Everything on the phone from scrolling and animations just feels smoother and more responsive.

But the problem, of course, is because the phone is technically doing more work by refreshing the screen.

More often it comes at the cost of battery life. So in today’s article, we’re gonna try to figure out just how big that cost is, at least on the S 20 OTRO here, by testing it at six years, which is what it said, two out of the box and testing it at one hundred and twenty hertz, inner standard phonebook style battery tests.

I’m excited to see what happens. Let’s get right into it.

This video is sponsored by Surf Shark. So you’ve probably heard about the benefits of using a VPN with the big one being that you can encrypt your personal information via a secure tunnel. So that way nobody can snoop on what you’re doing online.

But with a VPN like server shark, you also get side perks like avoiding price discrimination, since some Web sites actually give you different prices on things depending on who they think you are. And you also get to access content that’s not normally available in your country, like different Netflix libraries.

By accessing it through a server in whatever country it is available.

And Safari has strictly no logs, meaning that nobody can know what you’re doing online, not even search.

Eric and I just two dollars a month for unlimited devices that you can use all at the same time. Search Eric is a killer deal. Use Code Phumla for 85 percent off and three extra months free at the first link down below. All right.

We’ll start things off in the phone app where each phone is going on the same one hour phone call.

I don’t really expect there to be much of a difference here since the screens are actually off for the majority of this test. But since this is an official phone, wolf style battery test is just one of the things we have to go through.

We’re after one hour. The results are exactly the same with each phone dropping by five percent. So nothing too surprising there. Again, the only variable that we’re testing here is refresh rates, which, of course, only plays a role when the screens are actually on.

So I’m looking forward to seeing what happens here and the messaging test where after one hour of texting back and forth, we see our first difference with the one hundred and twenty hertz refresh rates coming at the cost of an extra two percentage points here in the email test was simply opening up the same set of emails.

And then maybe more importantly, we’re also scrolling through the emails, a task where you can at least visually notice the difference between refresh rates the most, where after one hour it’s a repeat of the last test with the one hundred and twenty hertz galaxy falling, another two percentage points behind here in the browser test.

We have both phones cycling through the same set of Web sites. We’re not really doing a whole lot of scrolling.

Just one scroll every 30 seconds. But a lot of Web sites are being loaded over the course of the hour where this time the difference isn’t as big as before.

But still, the 120 hertz galaxy falls another percentage point behind, bringing the total difference now to five percent in just four hours into this test. And here, an Instagram, that gap is probably only going to grow since over pretty much doing here is scrolling through the home feed where after one hour of doing so.

The gap between the two phones is now at seven percent. Which may not sound like a lot, but on a 5000 million up hour battery, like on the one in the S 20 Otara.

It’s pretty significant. Now, as part of the standard tests here, each phone is going on a 16 hour standby.

And since the screens are off the entire time, there wasn’t much of a difference. Just your standard margin of error over 16 hours. But moving on, the next step up is YouTube, where the screen and the speakers are on as each phone binge watches, the same set of articles.

Where after one hour of doing so. The one hundred and twenty hertz galaxy falls another two percentage points behind, basically picking right back up where you left off before the standby test, increasing the gap between the two to eight percentage points.

And that difference might get even bigger here in Auto’s Adventure, where it while it isn’t necessarily the most intensive game, it is at least utilizing the phone’s cheap use, where after one hour there actually wasn’t much of a difference.

Which is kind of surprising with these 60 Hertz galaxy only saving one percentage points here in maps.

Both phones are simulating navigation by having G.P.S. turned on, actively checking for traffic information and scrolling through the map where after one hour of doing so, it’s the same as last time.

Another percentage point advantage for the 60 Hertz galaxy, bringing it a full 10 percentage points ahead as we move on to Spotify.

Now, in this test, we’re not doing too much with the screens.

It’s mostly just remaining on as we play these songs with our roba only touching the screen every two minutes to change the song. But just by being on the 120 Hertz Galaxy balls, another two percentage points behind.

So as we head into Snapchat, which, by the way, is the most intensive test in this entire battery test, these 60, her SKELSEY has a pretty big advantage. We’ll see how far each phone can go here. We’re after thirty five minutes.

The 120 Hertz Galaxy calls it quits. Now, that’s not a bad performance at all.

In fact, it actually ranks pretty well in our rankings. But the sixth year, its galaxy still has an impressive 14 percent remaining or enough for the S 20 otra to make it all the way through Snapchat with seven percent left to go.

Which means that the 60 hertz as 20 ultra becomes the second phone that we have ever tested to make it all the way to the app cycle test.

A test where we simply open up these apps, we close them all and then we repeat that process over and over again until the phone. Guys dies after twenty four minutes into the AB cycle test, these 60 Hertz galaxy finally dies, bringing its total time to an impressive 26 hours and 24 minutes, or it nearly 50 minutes of screen time.

Longer than these same phones said to one hundred and twenty hertz. But anyways, that is it for me in this article.
