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.

One of the hardest thing for a lot of people to realize when changing technology, they need to change how they use it. If you try to use a tablet or your phone like a Laptop then you will be disappointed. If you are one of these new kids, and are use to using a tablet, trying to use a laptop like a tablet is equally disappointing.

For me if I could do software development on a tablet and have a keyboard (which most you can do now) I would be rather happy replacing my laptop.

Get Termux. Its eventual goal is to be able to turn non-rooted Android into a system capable of doing full Android app dev.
