Galaxy Note 4 unit that we're using for the test may be running non-final software, but it's still very interesting to how these two smartphones compare in that respect.These are all questions that should be put to the side for the time being, seeing that the phone is yet to hit retail, but then again, we think it'd be safe enough if we just take a quick peek at a pretty important aspect of the Galaxy Note 4's performance: namely, the speed at which it opens applications. In order to get an idea of just how quick (or slow) the Note 4 is, we put it right next to an iPhone 5s, and just like that, we came up with a pretty interesting speed comparison between the two. As we said, the results here shouldn't be considered conclusive, because the
Interestingly, it looks like the iPhone 5s may end up being the faster phone of the two, at least when it comes to its basic system performance. Cold-starting apps such as contacts, messaging, and the camera, the iPhone 5s was consistently faster then its galactic counterpart. Not by much, but the difference is there.
