How does Apple's new iPhone 6 hold up against the Samsung Galaxy S5 in terms of everyday performance? A new video test shows us just that.

Over the weekend, PhoneArena decided to compare the two flagship smartphones to understand which one used its hardware configuration better. The test involved firing up the same stock and third-party apps on both smartphones simultaneously to see which smartphone delivered faster results.

Among the two, the Galaxy S5 was quicker to boot and start up by a few seconds. Take a look at the results in the video below.

For the uninitiated, the Samsung Galaxy S5 uses a Qualcomm Snapdragon 801 (Quad-core 2.5 GHz Krait 400 CPU and Adreno 330 GPU), 2GB of RAM, a Super AMOLED 5.1in capacitive touchscreen that has a resolution of 1080 x 1920 pixels and a pixel density of 432.

For imaging, it relies on a 16 megapixel camera in the rear and a 2 megapixel camera up front. The device is IP67 certified, making it dust and water resistant.

Moving on to the iPhone 6, it has Apple's A8 chip (Dual-core 1.4 GHz Cyclone CPU and PowerVR GX6450 GPU), 1GB of RAM, a 4.7in IPS LCD display with a resolution of 750 x 1334 pixels and a pixel density of 326 ppi. For imaging, there's an 8 megapixel camera in the rear with phase detection autofocus and a dual-LED flash. For selfies and video chats, there is a 1.2 megapixel secondary camera up front.
