Benchmarks

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.

"I agree they're making good leaps, but remember that that this is a £700 phone. £700!

The two Samsung phones benchmarked against the iPhones are also similarly priced, or more. The Note 8 is supposedly around the US$1000 mark. Phone prices are getting ridiculous!
"

Nonsense. I can walk into Walmart and get a perfectly good Android phone for $100 (CAD) https://www.walmart.ca/en/ip/acer-liquid-zest-5-3g-smartphone/600019...
Or even less on Amazon. If you want the highest of the high end you will pay for it, but smartphone technology is cheaper than ever. My current iPhone 5S I bought for $80 used. Will probably replace with an SE soon.
