Yesterday, Samsung introduced its new flagship smartphone “Galaxy Note 9”. Needless to say, benchmarks pitting the Note 9 against Apple’s iPhone X instantly surfaced online.
iPhone X is faster than Galaxy Note 9
In Geekbench 4, the iPhone X continues to be the fastest mobile phone available on the market.
With a Geekbench 4 score of 10,357 points, it races past the OnePlus 6 with 9,088 points and the Galaxy Note 9 with 8,876 points.
Note 9, however, performs splendidly in the multi-core test and scores better than Note 8 and Google Pixel 2 XL.
Both these smartphones come with Qualcomm Snapdragon 835, the predecessor of the Snapdragon 845, which is used in Note 9.
Geekbench 4 score
|Phone||Geekbench 4 Multicore Score|
|Galaxy Note 9||8,876|
|Pixel 2 XL||6,282|
|LG G7 ThinQ||8,566|
|Galaxy Note 8||6,564|
What’s particularly impressive is the performance of iPhone X, considering the smartphone is almost a year now.
If iPhone X’s current performance is anything to go by, the new 2018 iPhone model with the A12 Bionic processor will blow the Note 9 and Pixel 3 out of the water.

In the 3DMark Slingshot Extreme test, one of the most demanding graphics tests, the iPhone X lands in second place with Galaxy Note 9 trailing right behind it.
