OnePlus 11 benchmarks – how do they compare to the Galaxy S23 and iPhone 14 Pro?

Our OnePlus 11 review is out, which means our OnePlus 11 benchmarks are too. And the numbers are especially interesting in light of the new Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 chipset, which promises a big leap in improvement over previous Android phones.

The interest in the OnePlus 11 benchmarks is enhanced by the fact that the new OnePlus flagship is not the only one powered by the latest Qualcomm Snapdragon processor. The Galaxy S23 family also features Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 – only these phones use a version of the chipset tuned specifically for Samsung phones with a higher clock speed than that used by the OnePlus 11.

So when we talk about OnePlus 11 benchmarks, we’re actually looking at three different things: 1) what kind of performance to expect from the OnePlus 11; 2) does the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 for the Galaxy that powers Samsung’s new flagships give these phones an advantage over the OnePlus 11; and 3) how close the OnePlus 11 comes to the iPhone 14 models that currently set the standard for mobile phone performance.

Here’s a closer look at the OnePlus 11 benchmarks and how the new phone’s performance compares to other top devices.

OnePlus 11 Benchmarks: Overall Performance

We use Geekbench to measure overall performance because it allows us to easily compare phones running different operating systems (i.e. Android and iOS). Apple’s iPhone usually dominates Geekbench results, but phones powered by Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 have narrowed that gap considerably. This trend continues with the OnePlus 11.

In the Geekbench 5 single-core test, the OnePlus 11 outperformed the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 by 17% compared to the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1-powered OnePlus 10 Pro. Multi-core scores are up 35% from last year. phone until the result is 4692.

It wasn’t enough to top the iPhone 14 Pro as the Apple A16 Bionic continues to beat everyone in Geekbench results. But the OnePlus 11 beat the iPhone 14 in the multi-core test. Apple is using an older A15 Bionic chipset in the standard iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Plus models, and this has allowed Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 phones to outperform those devices.

Looking at the Geekbench numbers, we also see how the Galaxy S23 family benefits from its customized Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 version. The Galaxy S23 Ultra is well ahead of the OnePlus 11 in both single-core and multi-core benchmarks, although the version of the OnePlus flagship we tested was is equipped with a large amount of RAM (16 GB versus 12 GB in the test sample used for our review of the Galaxy S23 Ultra).

OnePlus 11 Benchmarks: Graphics

Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 GPU enhancements have helped phones like the Galaxy S23 Ultra outperform the iPhone on tests like the 3DMark Wild Life test (both Unlimited and more demanding versions of Extreme Unlimited). The OnePlus 11 continues this trend and comes very close to our benchmark results for the Galaxy S23 Ultra.

In Wild Life Unlimited, the OnePlus 11 scored 84fps, beating both the iPhone 14 Pro (74fps) and the iPhone 14 (69fps). The OnePlus phone also outperformed the latest iPhones in Wild Life Extreme Unlimited.

There wasn’t much of a difference between the results posted by OnePlus 11 and Galaxy S23 Ultra, forcing us to jump to decimals to pick a winner in the Wild Life Extreme Unlimited test. There, the Galaxy S23 Ultra outperformed the OnePlus 11 with 22.7 to 22.1 fps. The gap in the standard test Wild Life Unlimited – 87.5 frames per second versus 84 – slightly more definitely leaned in favor of the Galaxy S23 Ultra.

That said, you can expect strong graphics performance from any Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 powered device – certainly better than last year’s best Android phones, and slightly better than the iPhone 14 results.

OnePlus 11 benchmarks: Adobe Premiere Rush

As a real test for every smartphone we review, we use Adobe Premiere Rush to transcode 4K video, keeping the results in sync. This test has traditionally proven difficult on Android devices, and it’s one area where the OnePlus 11 failed in our testing.

Of the phones listed here, the iPhone 14 Pro leads the way, transcoding this video in just 26 seconds. The OnePlus 11 did a good job at the time, taking over a minute to complete the task. More importantly, the OnePlus 11 took 9 seconds longer than its predecessor, the OnePlus 10 Pro.

While the Galaxy S23 Ultra didn’t come close to the iPhone’s numbers, it fared better than its Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 counterpart, transcoding video in just under 40 seconds. This was an improvement over its predecessor’s 47-second time, so the OnePlus 11 results we’ve seen may be specific to that phone and not necessarily Qualcomm’s silicon.

OnePlus 11 benchmarks: energy efficiency

Performance is only part of the story with the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2. Qualcomm’s new silicon also promises better power efficiency, and we’ve seen that in the form of better battery life for both the OnePlus 11 and the Galaxy S23 Ultra.

While OnePlus 11 battery testing is a different topic, we should mention that the new OnePlus flagship lasted an outstanding 13 hours and 10 minutes in our test, in which we have phones surfing the internet over cellular until they run out of power. That time was better than the Galaxy S22 Ultra’s still impressive 12 hours and 22 minutes. Although both phones made it to our list of the best phone battery life, we would attribute the OnePlus 11’s excellent result to the fact that the Galaxy S23 Ultra uses a higher clocked chipset.

OnePlus 11 benchmarks: general impressions

This is a great time for phones powered by Snapdragon 8 Gen 2, and the future could be even brighter. Leaked Geekbench results (will open in a new tab) The Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 chipset is reported to outperform the Apple A16 Bionic in early benchmarks. Of course, Qualcomm is unlikely to release this chip before the end of 2023, and Apple will most likely introduce a new chip of its own for the iPhone 15 Pro models.

This means we have a Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 in the near future, and our tests of the OnePlus 11 show it to be very good. Our test results confirm that Snapdragon silicon’s progress in closing the performance gap with Apple’s A-series chips is real, especially when it comes to graphics performance. Grab an Android phone with a Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 processor inside and you can look forward to a phone that can keep up with the leaders of the pack.

Again, not all Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 phones are the same. The Galaxy S23 Ultra’s top scores in all of these various tests show the value of Qualcomm’s specialized silicon that boosts clock speeds. The only advantage the OnePlus 11 has over a Samsung phone is a slightly better battery life, although the S23 Ultra is hardly a fool in this area.

We’ll have to see if the performance of the Galaxy S23 Ultra carries over to other Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 powered S23 models for the Galaxy, but it looks like Samsung phones are the ones to get if you want the most powerful Android phones. However, the OnePlus 11’s benchmarks are close enough, and its price is much lower – the OnePlus 11 starts at $699, $100 less than the S23 – so it remains an attractive alternative.
