- The iPhone 8 Plus was faster than the Pixel 2 XL in a speed test made by David Rahimi, a popular YouTuber and owner of the channel PhoneBuff.
- Speed tests are non-scientific tests that make two devices complete a set of tasks in the shortest amount of time possible.
- The iPhone performed better in this particular test but is still not the fastest device in PhoneBuff’s ranking.
The iPhone 8 Plus beat the Google Pixel 2 XL in a timed speed test, albeit only by a slight margin.
David Rahimi is the owner of the YouTube channel PhoneBuff, which routinely publishes speed test results every time a new flagship smartphone is released.
Speed tests pit two devices against each other, make them complete a set of identical tasks, and measure how much each takes to arrive to the finish line, in order to see which one is faster.
The difference is usually by the seconds, which means real life differences in actual speed will likely be unnoticeable, but these tests still give good insight on how different devices handle different tasks.
In this case, the iPhone 8 Plus only beat Google’s flagship smartphone by an overall five seconds, after finishing the first lap seven seconds ahead.
