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.

Am I the only Android user that can do 10x maybe 20x times as much on their phone than their Apple loving comrades?

Sometimes "fast" doesn't matter.

It's a "Apples" to oranges... and I like the oranges.

So you can twiddle your thumbs (or other appendages) in more useless apps! Who cares. I have yet to see a droid app that does not exist on an iPhone that I need or want.
