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 think he was talking about high-end phones

Right. And there it is not insane either. We can see from this benchmark that the iPhone 8 has a chip that can outperform some mid-range laptops. So is it really so surprising that it is starting to approach laptop prices? The money doesn't go to the extra plastic required to make a bigger device.
