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.

The last official maintenance release was 5.1.1 in early August 2015.

The last major update was 5.0 (since 5.0 and 5.1 are considered "Lollipop") in Nov 2014.

No idea where you get that they stopped supporting it this year.

Yes it's nice you can unlock the phone and install other operating systems on it. But this is useless to regular users.
