When it comes to smartphone performance, it’s easy enough to declare a winner. The Google Pixel 4 packs Qualcomm’s latest-and-greatest Snapdragon 855 chips. It’s a respectable and powerful piece of silicon, but it’s nowhere near as fast as the Apple A13 Bionic in the iPhone 11 lineup.
Apple continues to make the fastest smartphone chips in the world, according to both benchmarks and in-depth chip reviews. While the Pixel 4 series packs an estimated 2GB more RAM than the iPhones, Apple’s devices have always been able to achieve better performance with lower RAM specs.
