Back in April, we published a comparison of the real-world gaming performance of the Apple iPhone 6 and Samsung Galaxy S6. This was the first cross-platform analysis of its kind, revealing significant differences in the way each phone handled a sample of 10 popular mobile games. However, this report didn’t include the iPhone 6 Plus, which we felt belonged in different commercial category to the two more mainstream rivals.
We’ve since had numerous requests for iPhone 6 Plus performance data, and we’ve just completed our testing, so we figured its about time we made the numbers public. This blog post should therefore be considered an addendum, and we recommend that you download the original Battle of the Sixes report in order to get the full picture -- including a better understanding of GameBench’s approach and methodology (which is very different to the way traditional mobile benchmarks work).
