The iPhone XS Max absolutely crushed every competing smartphone in real-world speed tests since it came out, but it looks like its reign may be over.

In a new speed test pitting the iPhone XS Max against the Galaxy S10+, Apple’s flagship device finally loses its speed test crown. Apple’s best phones haven’t lost to Samsung’s flagship devices since the Note 5 came out. The iPhone XS Max actually beat the S10+ on the first lap but couldn’t keep up on the second.

Watch the Galaxy S10+ come from behind to win:
