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.

A DSL can't fit in your pocket.

A phone camera is not a replacement for a professional video solution, but this is for consumer applications. The phone is basically a good enough camera for 99% of the population.


It's not good in night shots, but most people can't drag a DSLR around anyway so they have no choice anyway, hence the market for as-good-as-it-gets phone cameras.

Indeed. There's also something equally important; most people don't know how to operate a DLSR camera, but they can push a button in their phone to take a photo which will be "good enough" for most of their intents and purposes. Same for video.

Another thing is that there is significantly more R&D money being put in the development of imaging sensors for mobile devices than DSLRs. People tend to underestimate consumer tech IC curves.
