Galaxy Note 9 benchmarked: Falls behind OnePlus 6, iPhone X

The Galaxy Note 9 with Snapdragon 845 and 6GB of RAM has now been benchmarked using Geekbench 4 and 3DMark Slingshot Extreme 3.1 and the results are surprising, or should we say disappointing. After a handful of testing, the Note 9 fell short of Appleā€™s iPhone X and even the cheaper OnePlus 6 came on top.

Samsung launched the Galaxy Note 9 at an event in New York last night and Tom’s Guide didn’t waste any time before pitting the flagship device against its rivals for benchmark testing.

The Galaxy Note 9 with Snapdragon 845 and 6GB of RAM has now been benchmarked using Geekbench 4 and 3DMark Slingshot Extreme 3.1 and the results are surprising, or should we say disappointing. After a handful of testing, the Note 9 fell short of Apple’s iPhone X and to make matters worse, even the cheaper OnePlus 6 outdid the current Samsung flagship.

The Geekbench 4 benchmark takes into account the performance of processors under all cores and the Note 9 delivered a score of 8,876 points which would’ve been termed decent if its results weren’t compared to its market rivals. The Note 9 not only scored far below last year’s Apple flagship iPhone X (10,357 points) but also fell short of OnePlus 6’s benchmarked score of 9,088 points. While the OnePlus 6 variant in question was the 8GB version, it’s to be noted that the most expensive OnePlus 6 is still way cheaper than the entry Note 9 device. However, there’s a significant change in performance when the Note device is compared to last year’s Galaxy Note 8 which only scored 6,564 points on Geekbench.

Galaxy Note 9 8,876
LG G7 ThinQ 8,566
Galaxy S9+ 8,295
Galaxy Note 8 6,564
Pixel 2 XL 6,282

Coming to 3DMark’s Slingshot Extreme 3.1 test which determines the graphics strength of smartphones, the Note 9 still came behind the iPhone X and OnePlus 6, with the latter topping the list with a score of 5,124 points. The Note 9 with its Adreno 630 graphics came out with a respectable 4,639 score, while still falling short of iPhone X’s 4,994 points. It must be noted that the graphics benchmarking of the Note 9 shared a ton of similarities with the Galaxy S9 Plus that was launched at the start of the year.

OnePlus 6 5,124
iPhone X 4,994
Galaxy Note 9 4,639
Galaxy S9+ 4,634
LG G7 ThinQ 4,201
Galaxy Note 8 3,710
Pixel 2 XL 3,679

While stress and benchmark tests aren’t the only basis for comparing two phones, it’s quite clear now that Samsung didn’t actually develop the Note 9 as a breakthrough device but just as a mere followup to last year’s Galaxy Note 8.
