We've already seen a speed test comparing the iPhone 7 Plus with last year's iPhone 6s Plus. A new real-world speed test shows how the smaller iPhone 7 with the A10 Fusion chip compares to the A9-powered iPhone 6s.

Months before Apple released its latest iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus, analysts were predicting consumer interest in the new iPhones would be low because of the devices retaining a similar design to that of the iPhone 6s series. This news was reportedly a major reason why Samsung supposedly rushed to get its Galaxy Note 7 on store shelves weeks ahead of Apple's launch and that rush has led to devastating consequences for the world's biggest smartphone maker.

New reports claim that Samsung could be facing a second recall of the Galaxy Note 7 after a replacement device exploded on a Southwest Airlines plane. U.S. carriers are now allowing customers to replace Galaxy Note 7 devices for other smartphones and early reports claim Apple's iPhone 6s, iPhone 6s Plus, iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus are benefiting the most.

In August we reported that the Samsung Galaxy Note 7 was put through a speed test with last year's iPhone 6s and surprisingly, Apple's older iPhone trounced Samsung's new flagship phablet. A few days after the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus went on sale, we got to see how the 5.5-inch iPhone 6s Plus and iPhone 7 Plus stacked up against each other in a video speed test.

If you were wondering how Apple's 4.7-inch iPhone 7, which is powered by a quad-core A10 Fusion chip, and iPhone 6s, which packs in a dual-core A9 processor, compares in a real-world speed test, PhoneBuff has created a video and put the two smartphones up against each other.

As you can see in the video below, the iPhone 7 takes the lead right off the bat by snapping a picture quicker than the iPhone 6s. Moving on to the gaming row of apps, the iPhone 7 maintains its lead over the iPhone 6s by about 1 or 2 seconds.

The iPhone 7 and iPhone 6s move on to use Lapse It to create a time-lapse from the same exact video file. As the reviewer notes, this is the most processor-intensive task in this speed test and as expected, the iPhone 7's quad-core A10 Fusion chip completes it faster than the dual-core A9 processor inside the iPhone 6s.

The iPhone 7 finishes its first lap with a time of 1:08, while the iPhone 6s finishes its first lap with a time of 1:20. Moving on to the second lap, the iPhone 7 finishes with a time of 1:34, while the iPhone 6s finishes its second lap 14 seconds later at 1:48.
