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.

Phone prices are getting ridiculous!

I couldn't agree more! It is absolutely crazy - they have entered or surpassed the laptop pricing. I can do so much more (useful things) on a laptop, and normally not bound to only one OS vendor that will artificially force me to upgrade or brand my hardware as obsolete in a year's time.

I'm still using a Google Nexus 4 which has received every Android update since it's release in 2012 (until this year) and my phone still runs every app under the sun just fine. All that for a fraction of what a Apple or Samsung phone costs.
