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 hear ya dude. The phones that it was benchmarked against would never be anywhere NEAR my 'must buy' list.

I'm really comparing it to some of the offerings from Xiaomi, ZTE, Lenovo and so on. I'd never spend $900+ on a phone, but if I did, I'd choose the iPhone out of the options in that price range.

Absolutely nothing against Apple, but they're just out of my bracket and not aimed at me.
