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

Exactly. Apple's plan with the A11 wasn't to rival a mid-range phone's performance per dollar. It was about being a lot faster than Android phones in the same price range by a good margin and basically put Exynos and Snapdragon to shame.
