Vivo X6 proves faster than an iPhone 6s, 4GB of RAM confirmed (video)

The upcoming Vivo X6 is shaping up to be one juggernaut of a phablet, with a rumored 6" Quad HD display with Force Touch tech, 4 GB of RAM, 21 MP camera and a large 4000 mAh battery, among other niceties. 

After teasing us yesterday with the X6 boxing material, Vivo today seemingly confirms that the X6 will indeed sport 4G of RAM, with the jolly GIF picture that you see here.

Bragging about being able to run much more apps at once without skipping a beat is nothing without proof, though, and someone has taken care of that by posting the video you see below on the Chinese version of YouTube. There an alleged Vivo X6 gets compared to an Apple iPhone 6s, and seemingly manages to open apps faster. 

The kicker with the Vivo X6, however, is supposed to be a 1 GB of dedicated graphics RAM, elevating the total amount on the handset to 5 GB RAM, which would be a first for a phone, so hopefully an actual announcement is as imminent as these teasers are suggesting. The phone is expected to come in several colors, too, among which we have (surprise, surprise) gold and pink versions.

iOS 9 might have too many animations out of the box too so it might take awhile for the animations to finish.

What kind of videos are you people watching? A lot of phones open apps faster than the iPhone 6s. The exception is games. The iPhone 6 loads games way faster and safari might be faster than chrome but the GS6 and Note 5 win every other app basically. I see delusion is strong in the isheep land. Lol

Of course the iPhone is fast. It doesn't do anything but launch apps.

For all who compare iPhones with high-end Android phones. The simple fact is that Android high-end devices have a lot more features and extras packed in. About the performance- we can all see that the iPhone has great performance and also do lots of Android flagships. So if anyone says "- Yeah ok, I don't need those extras, those s-pens, those customizations, those high screen resolutions, those split-screens, those fast-dialing and so on...."(some may be now existant, but too late I don't follow), it obviously shows that this person doesn't do a fair comparison, because it doesn't matter if he needs them. It matters which device can do what when comparing the another. So to make it simple for the people who don't follow -> Android high-end devices are the better overall package, because: - you have the Android feature rich system, - you can do what you want with it, - you can make it suit your needs, - you can pick design whatever you want from the different flagships, - you can pick whatever hardware you need(dual sim, microSD, detachable battery, unibody, metal, plastic, wood) With the iOS you can't pick, you don't have a choice. (Ok, you have 2 high-end models, but is this really a choise ? Basicly bigger and smaller...) For some things Apple is ahead - they introduced the 3d touch for example. But for others(FAR MORE), it is behind. They were late with full HD, they were late with NFC, they were late with live icons, they were late with the lockscreen widgets. Basicly all that i know of "new" extras that Apple is introducing in their system every year are all old things which Android system was doing for years.

Android and no lags!!!! The most known feature of an Android phone is lags even with 4 GB of RAM and 16 cores. Hehehe waiting you answer that proves your inferiority feeling in front of an Apple lover.

Some Android devices(limited hardware) or some Android modified versions have some lag. Others don't. It's up to you to decide what to use. You just have to make the right choice. You are free to do it. Your comment is not based on usage of devices, but on some limited,wrong or false information spread among the web.

It is shameful to compare an iPhone to these buls**t Android phones. Who compare a Ferrari to a Greatwall car!!!!!!!

Greatwall car has much better performance so you would be an iDiot to take thats ferrari!

Except if this iPhone is a 6S Plus, the Vivo X6 can't be a 6-inch phone

Yep, it's faster in app opening, how cool is that? Apple is surely sh!tting its pants right now, with few watch sales, iOS sutters, huge bezels, it lags guys, I don't know. Is Apple doomed for real?

iPhone 6S+ with 2GB RAM can compite the Note 5 with 4GB RAM. And most of the test is Apple iPhone won. What else could this Vivo X6 could show up.

I guess dominate the new IPhone 6s...the video proves that.

Only Samsung S & N series can compite iPhone. Other brands, nuh!

The video shows Vivo X6 is faster at opening apps than the IPhone 6S. There, I summarize it for you since clearly you have no interest on the content of the post and just want some trash talking other brands.

I don't know because I never saw a video comparison about this Vivo X6. So, let's see if this is true when they release in the market and IF their is a video comparison will come out.

You can live in denial all you want. Iphone are overpriced trash.

Yeah, but aba you gotta consider the obvious. The Note has 2K screen, S-Pen, full (actual) multitasking, it simply does wayyy more the the 6S Plus. The 6S Plus has none of that, it's a great device, but come on man. That's like bragging about a Camry getting better gas mileage than a Ferrari.

Ok, I will give credit for that. And most of us don't care those type of features. People have android high-end phones but 95% of them only use for FB, Twitter, Instagram, YouTube. I have 3 work-mate, 2 gym-mate, 1 friend but they never use those feature on their Note 3,4,5.

This is why there is tons of amazing android phone thats come with a clean android thats run even faster than the note phones. We have the choice to take a device with more or less features and still keep all the purchases we made on the app stores. You only have two choice... bigger or smaller screen with exactly same limited features set.

It doesn't matter what they use their phone for, it's just cool to have the features. I have both phones, and I use those Note 5 features all the time.

Iphone 6S has almost no background task and no features compared to most android handset so no wonder its take less ram to run right. Do a test install apps to give you all the features of the note 5 ( if you can not sure on ios there is an app for all those features.. on android there is ) and your lovely iphone will lag like a bitch. My Sonim XP7 is a 1 gb ram android phone and its as fast to open apps and UI navigation than iphone 6S... But this is because i dont let anything run in background and only installed app i really use all the time! Less crap installed ( features included ) less Ram usage.

and what is exactly the benefit of running things in background? as long as i get notifications from all my apps that is enough. and from my experience not all games support updating/downloading data in background.(Android) i can't see any benefit from true multitasking in a phone yet.
