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.

TFA: Apple made the world's fastest phone.

Reasonable responses:
Neat! Technology keeps getting better!
Wow, that's really fast.
That's almost as fast as the computer I'm working on!

Actual responses:
These balanced, well-regarded benchmarks are all lies. Lies, I tell you!
How dare cutting-edge technology be expensive!
Since I don't need a phone that fast, NOBODY needs a phone that fast.
I bet it doesn't run full speed all the time.
Get off my lawn, you kids!

So you think the benchmark is correct that the phone is faster than a Mac Pro?

Seriously?

Dude, you're on OSNews. Those reasonable response are the kind of thing your grandparents would say.

Deep diving into the cost benefit and the technology are to be expected here.
