    Can anyone explain this? I have had every iphone up until the X. I then switched to a S9+ and then a Note 9 which i might ad were excellent phones.

    I then went back to Apple and bought a Max. One thing that bothers me the Note 9 and the S9+ launches apps much quicker than the max does despite this big A12 chip. Why is this?

    I'm sorry for the rant but it p****s me off when i go on youtube reading all the comments from the Mate 20 pro brigade how s***t the iphone is being slow in speedt tests blah blah when you can't argue against it

    My apps launch just fine on my Max and I have no speed issues with WiFi and LTE connectivity.

    I’d add that they do seem to load slower than the S9 i came from. Doesn’t really bother me much though.

    That said I wish the LTE connectivity was better. Dropped 3 calls this week on my XS.

    I mean the apps themselves, for example like Instagram, Twitter, KIK, social media. They seem to load faster on androids. The fandroids are having a field day on youtube.

    My apps load fine. Regular apps always seem to load faster on Android and games usually seem to load faster on iPhone. I haven't really paid much attention though to as I love the Max and am extremely happy with it.

    How much faster are these apps opening on Androids devices? A fraction of a second? If so, why would that tick you off?

    So an Android device with twice the RAM of an iPhone X opens apps a fraction of a second faster. Wow! I'd be more ticked at the Android device

    I guess there's one thing left for me to do. I'm running out and get me a Note 9 right now (laughing).

    I don't know if apps load any faster on my Note 9 than they do on my Max, but I do know that apps crash a lot more frequently on my Note. As far as that goes, I can't really remember an app crashing on my Max. App crashes on the Note happen daily.

    I have noticed games loading faster on the Max. Marvel Contest of Champions is a great example, the Max loads it noticeable faster. Often times the Note will hang on the loading screen and I have to kill the app and start over.

    Apps load faster for me on the Max. The only app I have issues with is Tapatalk. Sometimes it freezes and I have to force close it. But it’s not unique to the Max. It’s been Ike this for a long time now. Had it on the iPhone X and prior as well. Other then that I don’t see where the Note is faster at all.

    I have had my xs max screen freeze a couple times, and it has also restarted 5 or 6 times in the three weeks I have had it. I guess I don’t see iOS or android much better then the other. It is strange that the iPhone test so much faster but in practice is basically the same. Then again it is funny how iPhone keeps apps open with only 4gb of ram and android needs 6 or 8. Would love to have both, but Verizon does not allow you to just swap the SIM card and go. No one else has good enough coverage.

    Not sure what you mean by Verizon won’t allow you to swap SIM cards and go. I swap mine between the Note and Max almost weekly with no issues. I usually do a reboot to make sure the number takes on the phone, but haven’t really had any issues.

    That’s just the animation on iOS.

    Go to settings, general, accessibility, and turn on reduce motion.

    Sorry op but the iPhone Xs is much faster than anything Samsung offers.

    Not so sure. Even the Mate pro is embarrassingly beating the iphone in speed, the laughing stock of the Mate fanboys and 500 quid cheaper. Apple conned people with the A12 bionic chip. Looks like i'll be selling the Max, last iphone i'll ever own....

    The iPhone blows away any Android offering year after year. App opening “speed tests” are a laughable example of comparing phone speeds.

    Looks like the iPhone Xs max is faster than the note 9.



    Also the screen is better on the iPhone X’s max compared to the note 9






    Here is another test where the iPhone X’s max beats the note 9.




    iPhone Xs max is even faster than the pixels 3.

    9/10 web based applications/social media apps open faster on android. It’s been that way for years. Gaming apps open faster on iOS. Nothing new

    Okay, here’s the answer as to why Android home screen and apps open faster. It’s visual. The animations are much faster or non existent on Android. iOS has animations for all these things. That’s the reason.

    That’s based on animations more than anything else. The iPhone regularly beats android devices in speed tests as pointed out in the videos above. If commenters on YouTube are very important to you then you could either educate them or use what they tell you to use. That’s your call.

    Can I ask an honest question? Who cares? If the only reason you don’t like it is cause android supposedly opens apps faster and android fanboys are “laughing” about it who really cares. If your happy with the phone keep it and use it. If your not sell it and move on, I don’t understand why it matters what a bunch of people on YouTube are saying about how “fast” the phone is or isn’t.

    The Oneplus6t has just handed the iphone max's ***. It beats it everywhere including games and loading webpages it's a huge difference. We are talking about a 550 dollar phone vs 1100 phone.

    I'm wondering if apple are cheating somehow on the geek bench scores or there's something wrong with their software. I don't believe it's animations because it seems to struggle loading apps in comparison. My phone isn't faulty because it's the same on all iphones i have tried. I turned down the animations.

    I'm sorry people if my posts offend anyone on here they are not meant to. I'm just a little p*****d spending so much on a phone that's supposed to have the fastest processor that doesn't feel fast.
