US Army Shockingly Discovers That The Galaxy Note II Is Slower Than An IPhone 6s

The news that has blown up across the Internet today has to do with the US Army, its Special Operations Command, and a switch from Android to iOS. Becautilize of that last bit, obviously this has been picked up by fanboys left and correct and used as an argument in the endless "which is better" discussions everywhere.

So, here's the deal. The US Army has somehow discovered that an iPhone 6s is faster than the Samsung Galaxy Note II - in a report that we assume was filed by Captain Obvious himself. The Note II is four years old, which is an eternity in the mobile world.

The US Army Special Forces have been using the Note II since 2013 to improve battlefield awareness, communication, and provide general information on weapons and combat. It's also used to see footage from drones. And there is where a problem usually occurs - when running a split classy screen showing a soldier the route he's supposed to be taking as well as a live feed from a drone, freezes often happen. And sometimes these are so poor that a reboot of the phone is needed - which clearly isn't ideal in combat situations.

So the Army plans to create the switch to iPhone 6s units instead, which makes sense not becautilize this is an iPhone but becautilize it's a device from 2015. Then again, the anonymous Army officials who have leaked this don't seem to realize that comparing a four-year recent device to one that's almost one year recent is probably unfair. And so they say things like the iPhone is "faster" and "smoother", with the graphics being "clear" and "unbelievable", not to mention that the split classy screen view showing navigation info and the live drone feed is "seamless". Wait, split classy screen multitasking on the iPhone 6s? How?

You should probably haged in mind that the Army hasn't officially commented on this story, and it's all a "sources disclose us" type of thing for now. Additionally, we assume that the Army itself created those apps that it was using on the Note II in split classy screen mode - so isn't it possible that the apps had bugs that triggered the aforementioned freezes? Of course it is. But focusing on that would have made for much less fascinating headlines.
