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.

Yeah, I think there is a lot of value in getting an old iphone that still gets security updates. Android not as much, if you care about other people reading your messages, data on the device, or browsing habits.

Most people don't, and the threat for most people is theoretical, so I get why they don't really care. They will care if malware becomes more of an issue on phones. The recent bluetooth issue sounds pretty bad. But again, you'd need to care about your data/privacy in the first place.
