Unlike the past few years when we had a few cell phone manufacturers, we now have a lot of them out there. New manufacturers are getting into the game and it doesn’t look like they’re going to end there. We will continue to have more than we have now as time goes on.
It is already a very tough competition for all manufacturers. Previously, we used to have the likes of Samsung, Apple, Huawei and a few other companies vying for the flagship market. Other new manufacturers have mostly focused on entry-level and mid-range smartphones.
This is no longer the case in these recent years. Now, you will find almost every manufacturer, big or small, competing in all areas of the smartphone market. Whether it is entry level, intermediate level or master level.
There is a very large market for smartphones in general and every manufacturer is doing their best to grab their share of the pie. In fact, every manufacturer is trying to reach the top of the ladder. This struggle to the top has led to the emergence of a lot of innovations and technical developments for smartphones.
Each manufacturer tries to attract the attention of consumers with their technology. And that’s a very good thing because at the end of the day, it’s the consumer who benefits from all the technologies. This also gives consumers plenty of options to choose from.
Samsung and Apple dominate the market
We now have names like Samsung, Apple, Xiaomi, Realme, Redmi, Huawei, Oppo, Vivo, OnePlus, IQOO, Nokia, Sony, Tecno, Infinix, etc.
However, only a few can actually take the lead. Not everyone can be the first, surely there will be #1, #2, #3 in that order. This leaves us with the obvious top 2 smartphone manufacturers, Samsung and Apple.
The controversy between Samsung and Apple fans seems like an endless debate. Sometimes the controversy between fans of Ronaldo and Messi appears. Everyone thinks their hero is the best and of course they have good explanations to support their choice.
This is what’s happening between Apple fans and Samsung fans right now. Apple users say Samsung is trash while Samsung users also say iPhones are overrated. It will be an almost impossible task trying to convince an iPhone user that Samsung is better. And a Samsung user can’t be convinced that the iPhone is better.
I have come across these arguments on countless occasions. I realize that wherever Samsung or iPhone is mentioned, such arguments are likely to come up. This is the main reason for coming up with this article.
None of the results in this article came from my personal opinions. We have carefully collected a lot of results from different comparison videos. Plus our comparison before writing this article.
Standard score vs real life performance
You hear a lot of people say that benchmark results don’t really matter. What really matters is the phone’s realistic performance. Well, I’ve made that statement on several occasions as well. So I will first talk about the benchmark scores of these two smartphones.
Real-world performance test results will also follow afterwards. In this way, we can easily confirm whether the benchmark results really translate into the performance of smartphones in actual use. The winner of each test gets one point. So it’s either one point or nothing. In the end, we’ll know how many points each phone has. Let’s get started…
Geekbench Score for iPhone 14 Pro Max and Samsung S22 Ultra
We’ll start with the Geekbench results for both devices. Geekbench measures the processor and memory performance of a smartphone or computer. And matches it with real life functions or using a smartphone or computer.
Samsung Galaxy s 22 The Ultra has a Geekbench score of 1168 for the single core. It also got a score of 3508 multi-core.
iPhone 14 Pro Max On the other hand, it has a Geekbench score of 1879 for the single-core score and 4,664 points for the multi-core score.
So you can clearly see that the iPhone 14 Pro Max leads the Samsung S22 Ultra perfectly in both the single-core and multi-core score on Geekbench. This leads us to 1 Dot for iPhone.

The ML scale scores also come from Geekbench. It measures the machine learning and artificial intelligence capabilities of your smartphone.
The iPhone 14 Pro Max I got a total ML reference score of 1000.
The Samsung Galaxy S22 Ultra He also received an ML reference score of 429 points.
one 1) Point your iPhone 14 Pro Max at the Samsung S22 Ultra.
Antutu benchmark score for iPhone 14 Pro Max and Samsung S22 Ultra

Once again, the iPhone 14 Pro Max clearly leads the Samsung S22 Ultra on the Antutu Benchmark. else 1 Dot for iPhone.
3DMark Score for iPhone 14 Pro Max and Samsung S22 Ultra
3DMark Benchmark measures smartphone gaming performance. The iPhone 14 Pro Max had a gaming performance score of 3009 while the Samsung S22 Ultra came closely with a score of 2,800.
The iPhone got the point here, too. This brings us to the end of the Benchmark tests. Apparently Apple has dominated the benchmark scores over Samsung. The iPhone scored all four of the benchmark scores. But would that be the case if we got into the real-life test? Let’s find out.
Real life tests of the iPhone 14 Pro Max and Samsung S22 Ultra
In a real-world use test, I will list the results of each test and highlight the winner. Real-world testing starts with boot time. The time it takes a smartphone to boot up tells us how well the processor handled the software right from the start. So let’s get started.
boot time: iPhone 14 Pro Max finished booting up in about 10 seconds while Samsung Galaxy S22 Ultra took about 13 seconds to boot up. 1 point for iPhone here.
App speed test between iPhone 14 Pro Max and Samsung S22 Ultra
Camera app: 1 point for iPhone 14 Pro Max and 0 for Samsung S22 Ultra.
Twitter app: The Twitter app was first opened on the Samsung S22 Ultra. So, 1 point for Samsung and 0 for Apple here.
Instagram app: Instagram loads faster on iPhone. But the Instagram camera opens faster on Samsung. 1 point for iPhone and 1 for Samsung.
Tik Tok app: Apple is taking the lead again with the Tiktok app loading time. Another point for Apple.
PubG game: PubG also loads faster on iPhone. One point again for iPhone and zero for Samsung.
In conclusion, iPhone 14 Pro Max has a total of 4 points of app load time while Samsung S22 Ultra has 2 points.
Rendering speed on iPhone 14 Pro Max and Samsung S22 Ultra
In the video demo, we tested about 4 video editing apps but the result was the same. So we had to use only two apps for the purpose of this article. We decided to use the Capcut video editor and Adobe Lightroom.
Capcut video show: To ensure fairness, we used the same video on both phones to display the video. The iPhone took about 16 seconds to complete the rendering. The Samsung S22 Ultra took about 23 seconds to complete the same process. 1 point for Apple.
Adobe Lightroom: For Adobe Lightroom, we used a larger video file for testing. An iPhone running Bionic A16 was able to complete this task in 7 minutes 2 seconds. Samsung work completed within 14 minutes and 2 seconds. Apple claims the point here, too.
This brings us to the end of the performance test. The Samsung S22 Ultra is also completed with a battery level of 78%. The iPhone 14 Pro Max had 76% battery remaining. 1 point for Samsung here. In the end, these are the total scores for each smartphone.
iPhone 14 Pro Max: 10 points
Samsung S22 Ultra: 3 points
Judging from the end result, we can clearly conclude that Benchmark results really matter when it comes to daily use. But can I also conclude that the iPhone 14 Pro Max completely smashes the Samsung S22 Ultra in real-life performance?
