Huge iPhone 13 test reveals if it’s FASTER than your pricey Samsung or Huawei

APPLE’S new iPhone is already crushing rivals when it comes to performance.

The iPhone 13 was announced just a few days ago – but early tests suggest it’s a computing beast.

Benchmark buster

Apple’s powerhouse blower is available for pre-order from today, but won’t be available generally until Friday, September 24.

But early benchmarks of the iPhone 13 suggest Apple’s new mobile blows all competition out of the water.

A benchmark test is a way of measuring the performance of a computer – like a smartphone.

It’s usually an app that will get the phone to complete a series of tasks.

And it will give the phone a score, depending on how effectively it completes those tasks.

These scores can then be used to compare different smartphones.

Numbers game

There are two types of Geekbench score: single-core (using one core of the processor) and multi-core (using multiple processor cores).

For single-core, the iPhone 13 earns a whopping 1,728.

Here’s how that compares to rival devices:

iPhone 12 Pro Max – 1,573

Samsung Galaxy S21+ 5G – 968

Xiaomi Poco F2 Pro

OnePlus 8 – 877

Huawei P30 Pro – 685

For multi-core, the iPhone 13 comes in at 4,695.

Here’s how that compares to rival devices:

Asus ROG Phone 3 – 3,241

Xiaomi Poco F2 Pro – 3,222

OnePlus 8 – 3,124

Samsung Galaxy S21 Ultra 5G – 3,096

Does it matter?

Of course, it’s important to note that benchmarks aren’t the ultimate test of a smartphone’s performance.

Benchmarks are usually designed to reflect how a user would normally use a phone.

But they can never truly capture normal usage.

So you might find that a smartphone might perform very well in benchmarks, but a different model with a lower score is actually better at certain tasks you love doing – like editing videos, running AR apps, or playing games.

And ultimately, phone performance is only one small part of what makes a phone good.

You should consider price, camera quality, storage space, the operating system, the phone’s exterior design and much more.

Also bear in mind that most high-end phones are exceptionally powerful, so small differences in benchmark scores don’t matter too much.

The iPhone 13 is available for pre-order now, and goes on sale on Friday, September 24 for $699/£679.
