We’ve seen our share of head-to-head YouTube speed tests of the latest smartphones, but there’s always an extra 5 minutes for another one. In this case, it’s the OnePlus5 vs. the HTC U11and the Samsung Galaxy S8- a battle of the 835 Snapdragons, if you will.

In this iteration, its 20 apps run in succession on the three phones, against the clock. A second round is performed to see how quickly the phones can access the apps already launched on the first go – RAM management is key for this one. Oh, and the amount of RAM too, of course – 8GB for the OP5, half that for the S8 and U11.

The OnePlus 5 takes the lead in the first round, completing the routine in 51.3 seconds, 3.6s ahead of the U11, and 12.7s quicker than the S8. In the end, the OP5 emerges victorious, 9.0s ahead of the U11, while the S8 finishes 26.2s behind.

You can watch the entire video below to see the selection of apps, and which apps took more time reloading.
