iPhone 14 Pro Max vs. Galaxy Z Fold 4 speed test delivers a big surprise

The iPhone 14 Pro models are the only new Apple devices to feature the slightly faster and more efficient A16 Bionic chip.

The chip is faster than the A15 variant that powers the iPhone 14 and Plus models. 

B benchmark scores showed that already. The new A16 Bionic is also quicker than what the competition has to offer, another new iPhone tradition. 

However, real-life speed tests involving the iPhone 14 Pro Max and the Galaxy Z Fold 4 deliver a better picture of what the two devices are capable of.

This is the kind of test we’re used to seeing with each new flagship smartphone release. 

Also, it’s the kind of test the latest iPhone usually wins. After all, the A16 Bionic should outperform the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 Plus System-on-Chip (SoC) that powers the Galaxy Z Fold 4. 

But the speed test you’re about to see shows that surprises can be expected, thanks to a critical component.

What about the Galaxy S22 Ultra?

These iPhone speed tests usually feature the newest Galaxy S model. In this case, the Galaxy S22 Ultra should have been compared with the iPhone 14 Pro Max. 

 However, the Galaxy S22 line faced massive backlash earlier this year for the way Samsung misrepresented the phone’s performance.
