iPhone 6s Plus vs. Galaxy Note 5: Real world performance test (it's not even close)

Of course, many of these fanboys came around to agree with that line of thinking on benchmarks once iPhones started to crush the competition in benchmark performance tests, beginning with the iPhone 5s and continuing right up to this year’s iPhone 6s.
