The one thing that we have noticed in the smartphone market in recent times is that premium phones are getting more and more expensive. This is the reason OEMs have started to offer "affordable" flagships for relatively lower pricing. In this new product category, Samsung Galaxy S10e and Apple's iPhone XR are two of the best options available out there. We have already shared a detailed comparison featuring the two and now, it is time for a speed test to get an idea about their real-world performance.
This particular Galaxy S10e and iPhone XR speed test video has been shared by well-known YouTuber XEETECHCARE. The video kicks off with a boot time comparison where Apple's offering emerges as victorious with a slight margin. As for launching apps and video games, the competition between both smartphones is quite a close one. Both tend to be faster than the other one in some of the apps and games. Although, the exact delay is not a significant one in most cases.

The last phase of the video includes checking RAM management capabilities. Both the phones managed to keep most of the apps running in the background. Gameloft's Asphalt 9 game was re-loaded by Galaxy S10e but as for Subway Surfers, both phones ended up reloading the game.
In other words, both phones performance is more or less the same with no major issues or differences to talk about. You can check out the complete video below.
