iPhone 6s Challenge HTC One M9, S6 Edge, LG G4 and ZTE Axon

The CPU thermal throttling of smartphones has been one of the most discussed topics in this 2015, since the stories have emerged about the Qualcomm Snapdragon 810. Therefore, on the occasion of the marketing of a new smartphone arrives more or less interesting tests are intended to verify how the temperature rise caused by using go to affect the performance of the device.

The test that we propose today is quite interesting and is primarily aimed at iPhone 6s, the latest top of the range model from Apple. During the test will be considered two scenarios, one based at a normal room with a temperature of 24° and one maintained in a container with ice and water, in order to cool the device. Both tests are often lasting 10 minutes and uses the platform Geekbench 3 to check the progress of the performance through the evaluation obtained in core tests.

As you may have guessed from the title, this experiment has not been done only for iPhone 6s, but saw as protagonists HTC One M9, Galaxy S6 Edge, LG G4 and ZTE Axon, with very interesting results. Below you will find graphs of performance in both conditions and, as you can see, both iPhone 6s that LG G4 seem not to suffer the slightest rise in temperature after further tests, showing similar results and consistent with each other.

Completely different speech for HTC One M9 and ZTE Axon, both based on Snapdragon 810, with the first one I had to repeat the test due to a crash suspect has more than halved its scores in just 10 minutes, while the latter has “just” showed a sharp decline of performance over time. Definitely more balanced Galaxy S6 Edge and Exynos 7420, which is affected by the temperature rise marginally, although it does not reach the stability of iPhone 6s with Apple A9 and LG G4 with Snapdragon 808.

Of course, as the test is recreated in a more impartial as possible, it is not without flaws, even if he can offer us a scenario quite credible than can be the real differences in the continued use of these smartphones and highlights the excellent work done on A9 and Snapdragon 808. Having said that we leave you to the vision of the video, so that we can make a clearer idea of the matter:

  • Apple iPhone 6s is available online from bass8 at 559 euros or from ePRICE to 635 euros. The value for money is discreet. There are 9 better models.
  • LG G4is available online from ePRICE to 335 euros. Good value for money and is one of the best devices in this price range.
  • Samsung Galaxy S6 edge is available online from ePRICE to 469 euros. The price is decent but there are 4 best models.
  • HTC One M9is available online from TellyCelly to 369 euros or Redcoon to 479 euros. The value for money is discreet. There are 7 top models.
