Apple and Samsung's rivalry continues but a new player challenges the iPhone 6 and Galaxy Note 4 flagships: LG G Flex 2. According to a recent test, LG's handset bested the two phones making it the fastest selection.

In a recent test by Forbes' Ian Morris, a benchmarking app has been used to check the speed of the phone. The benchmarking premise has to be indicated because the author also believes that the test does not provide real-world facts. However, the G Flex 2 came with the much talked about Snapdragon 810 system chip so the interest is there.

Morris writes about these findings: "From what I’ve seen, the LG G Flex 2 is blazing fast and beats every other phone on the market according to the benchmarking tools I used. In every test (with one minor 64bit hiccup) the phone beats both the Note 4 and Galaxy S5 as well as, with 3DMark, the iPhone 6." LG G Flex 2 comes with the following specs 2GB RAM, 16GB storage and a microSD slot that can accommodate up to 2TB cards ideally.

Despite the results, Samsung may have another contender up its sleeves with the Samsung Galaxy S6 happening in just a week. Well-known French "leaker" Nowhereelse.fr has published detailed schematics of the upcoming handset. The dimensions reveal that the new S6 will be slimmer and thinner compared to its Galaxy S5 predecessor. Specifically, the dimensions are as follows: Galaxy S6 – 143.52 x 70.7 x 7.19 mm (5.65 x 2.78 x 0.28-inches) while the Galaxy S5 – 142 x 72.5 x 8.1 mm (5.59 x 2.85 x 0.32-inches).

Likewise, there are also great expectations from the flagship as Samsung recently introduced its first 14nm FinFET mobile application processor. The new technology promises high levels of efficiency including in productivity and performance. Samsung also claims that it offers speed improvements by much as 20 percent, productivity gain by as much 30 percent and power efficiency by as much as 35 percent.
