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.

Actually what you and the previous commenter are displaying is a lack of understanding of what computing actually is.

It's very common for some people to get too caught up with the implementation details of an idea, to the point they miss the concept itself. This is, you're confusing the version of computing you are used to interact with, as it being how computing should be done, or the only proper way to do it.

For a person who has grown using mobile devices and with pervasive connectivity, your idea of how a computing device that acts as a media hub should look like, and behave, would look asininely outdated. For example.
