Speakeasys Speed Test is the best way to measure how fast your smartphone is, but its accuracy is spotty at best.
The iPhone 6 and 6 Plus are among the first phones to receive the speed test (pictured) but it can only take a snapshot of the screen and display, not the processor and memory.
So, if you’re running on a slower phone, you’ll need to run Speakeays Speed test again and again.
Speakeys Speedtest is a feature of iOS that allows users to upload a picture and then send the speed of the device to a web service, for instance, to determine how fast a device is actually using the CPU and memory it has.
It’s a fairly straightforward process.
To start, head to the Settings menu on your iPhone and then tap the More menu at the top of the page.
Tap the Photos tab, then tap More Photos.
Tap Speakers, and then select Speakers.
Then tap Speakers Speedtest.
If you’re using an iPhone 6 or 6 Plus, Speakeassys SpeedTest will appear in your iPhone’s settings menu.
If it doesn’t, tap Settings again and tap About phone.
If your device has more than one processor, the SpeakeASys Speed testing option will appear under General.
On the Speed Test page, tap the Speakers tab, and tap Speake ASys Speed.
On this page, enter the speed in megabytes per second (MB/s), and hit the Upload button to upload your picture.
You’ll see the speed on the Speaseys Speed tests page.
If there’s an error, the speed is too fast and you’ll have to try again.
Speakeaks Speedtest can only capture a snapshot at a time.
To upload a snapshot, open your camera app and tap the + icon in the top-right corner.
Then select the camera app you want to take a photo.
Tap Snapshot, and the Snapshot tab will appear.
Tap Upload to upload the snapshot.
If the speedtest is too slow, you can use the camera’s other options to speed up the capture process.
If that doesn’t work, you could try increasing the resolution of the camera.
If so, you should try using the camera with a higher-resolution sensor, such as a sensor that’s much faster than the iPhone 6 Plus’ camera sensor.
The faster the speed, the more data is captured.
Speakers can also capture a video.
To do so, tap Video, and a Video tab will open.
Tap Video Capture.
You can then choose the type of video you want captured, such, a high-quality 1080p or 720p video or a low-quality 720p or 1080p video.
Then, tap Upload to record the video.
