"Bottom Line

With a record of 3-1-1, we're giving the Galaxy S8 the win in this speed battle. Samsung's phone opened apps faster, was ready to shoot photos quicker and delivered zippier Wi-Fi speeds.

If you've been wondering whether Apple or Samsung makes the faster phone, you now have an answer: It's the Galaxy S8."
