Speed Test: #Nokia 6 vs. #Samsung Galaxy S8

YouTuber XEETECHCARE did a speed test comparison video between the Nokia 6 and Samsung Galaxy S8. Everyone already knows the winner, because the Nokia 6 is a €230 midrange device, while the Galaxy S8 is on the other hand a flagship priced at €800. The 3 times more expensive S8 must have and the S8 has better performance than the 6, but the goal of the video is to see how a cheap phone compares to an expensive one, or in other words, if we just look at performance, is a few seconds faster phone worth 3 times more money?

The video comparison shows that in everyday tasks, mainly opening system apps, the Nokia 6 behaves just like the S8. The 6 handles simple apps in the same way the 6 does, but the real power of Samsung’s hardware shines in games and complex applications. The Nokia 6 with its 4GB of RAM is very good at RAM management as well. Not as good as the S8, but still decent for a low-to-mid range device.

Also, if you are wondering why the S8’s screen is cracked, XEETECCARE did a Galaxy S8 drop test that the phone did not survive, obviouslly. Overall, the Nokia 6 seems to have decent performance in everyday tasks, being a little slow when it comes to games, for a €230 phone using the Snapdragon 430. The global version of the 6 is expected to hit the market this quarter, so we can finally get our hands on and see for ourselves how the phone performs.

What do you think about this comparison? Tell us down below. 🙂

  • S8 is so small in front of Nokia 6 lol. I can’t type properly on small phones after using Nokia Lumia 1320 for so long 🙁

    • It is a bit narrow, I like more devices like Nokia 6, or Xiaomi Mi Mix

  • The Nokia logo is too big on device start up.

    • That’s probably the reason why it boots up little slower than S8 😉 lol

      • Haha. You are right. 😜 But its faster than my Lumia lol but I like the way Nokia appears on Lumia devices. SMALL.

        • I have the Lumia 800, and the thing boots up in 8 seconds. The cancelled feature phone “smart” OS Meltemi was said to boot up in 3 seconds. The original 3310 boots up faster than the Lumia 800 😀

    • Rocky

      Like a fake chinnese crap in Nseries era, why they can’t design those boot screen better

      • Plz don’t say like that. 🙁 “Something is better than Nothing” 🙂 I hope they update it with future updates 🙂

        • Rocky

          Hope they implement the N9 boot animation, that’s better 🙂

  • Hey, Check out Concept Creator. He is back with Nokia concept 🙂

    • Jep, the teaser is out, but waiting for the whole thing. 🙂
