YouTube user Adrian Isen took all four versions of the Galaxy S6 and iPhone 6 for an Internet speed test, including the Galaxy S6, Galaxy S6 edge, iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus, using only Wi-Fi connectivity. It seems like a curious test, but consider how often you use your smartphone while connected to a Wi-Fi network.

Of all these devices, the Galaxy S6 edge turned out to be the winner when it comes to Wi-Fi speed performance. The device beat both iPhone 6 models by a significant margin, and, surprisingly, it even outperformed the regular Galaxy S6.

The Galaxy S6 edge had upload speeds of 169.18Mbps and 153.34Mbps and download speeds of 185.67Mbps and 181.09Mbps. Comparatively, the iPhone 6 Plus had upload speeds of 125.55Mbps and 122.48Mbps and download speeds of 102.67Mbps and 104.74Mbps.

The full video showing the Wi-Fi speed tests, which you can perform as home with any device, follows below.
