    Not surprising with the added ram. The Kirin chip has been known to beat the 835 in various tests.

    I am not really shocked. Samsung usually loads the same or a hair slower when both are not in memory. There isn't really a huge difference loading normal apps.

    Samsung has more aggressive memory management plus less ram so it isn't surprising that apps get kicked out of memory.

    For those power users who like to open and switch between large apps extremely frequently then the Honor 8 pro and op5 are better options for sure.

    That would be an interesting test! If you get an Honor 8 pro then you should do a speed test and let us know

    That same guy did an HTC U11 vs S8 and the HTC was faster, too. Guess because of all the bloat ware that Samsung loves.

    4) love the ir blaster
    5)loud speaker is loud and clear
    6)love the 16:9 ratio
    7)build quality is stellar love the metal frame as glass backs are fragile

    SD835 and Kirin 960 are very competitive against each other. You won't be disappointed on either one
