The "Bionic" part in the name of Apple's A11 Bionic chip isn't just marketing speak. It's the most powerful processor ever put in a mobile phone. We've put this chip to the test in both synthetic benchmarks and some real-world speed trials, and it obliterates every Android phone we tested.

As far as SoCs go, Apple is incredibly far ahead of Qualcomm and Samsung. These companies have some serious soul-searching to do.

I can't wait for AnandTech to dive into the A11 Bionic, so we can get some more details than just people comparing GeekBench scores.

... can it make phone calls?

I understand the desire for Phastest Phone Epher!!, but what is the actual benefit for the phone and the user?

Do we need a faster facebook or twitter? Will push notifications be faster?

It's certainly going to drain the battery faster, unless it spends most of the time idling at a speed easily matched by an iPhone 3.
