While boasting an "Octa Core" Application Processor option and an extremely high resolution display, Samsung's new Galaxy Note 4 falls flat in running GPU intensive apps and games--particularly in comparison to Apple's iPhone 6 Plus.The first benchmarks showing off the actual performance users will get from the new Note 4 highlights that Samsung appears to be making the wrong engineering choices, and that the conventional wisdom about Samsung's advantages in operating its own chip design and fab are also wrong.

To phone makers, it is another feature highlighting the photographic and computational abilities of their devices. And to us – well, it is a priceless opportunity for a camera comparison!The Google Pixel 3, the iPhone XS, and the Samsung Galaxy Note 9 – these are the phones running in the race.
