Apple produces it's own hardware and iOS is "tailored" for the iPhone so even "inferior" (comparing to quad and octa core processors in Android phones) dual core processor performs much better than any average and even high-end Android phone.
Anonymous, 06 Sep 2016wrong! you said recent phone chips have bigger power than 5 years old desktop?
All processor... moreyup. and that is the reason why apple dont use osx for phones and tablets.
because osx is intended to be used with desktop processors.
and ios is intended to be used with very low powered mobile processors.

All processors inside phones is powered with very small energy (i.e very small battery). It still can't compete with real desktop-class-processor.
for example: my 8 years old core2 laptop can smoothly run visual studio 2015, android studio, eclipse, etc. Very low powered devices such as phone and tablet still can not do that.

They are irrelevant scores, especially for cross platform comparisons.
If you do want to compare, look at the FP performance of the Intel big boys and the fastest ARM processor.
Mobile chips, although progressing rapidly, are still inadequate for heavy and complex software like CAD and real Photoshop.
Impressive scores. Now put that monster into a phone with 2k AMOLED screen, 6GB of RAM, LEICA camera, expandable storage, removable 4000 mAh battery and most importantly Android and it would smash every competition. Why not sell your CPU to other manufacturers, Apple? Samsung does it as well (Meizu), so why not?
the moment ios will make it free to other manufactures android will die as ios has better ram management, battery life and add better GPU on other hand android has lots malware slow and freezes screen while playing or opening bigger file in my view ios is best compare to all other os i have tired many other
SolarFox, 06 Sep 2016My 3 year old Samsung S4 Plus have 966 - 3071 so this is not some revolutionary result.It's 3.5 times as fast in raw performance (single core is what matters on ios).
That's revolutionary gains for just 3 years.
It's mightily impressive, my comparison computers gained 20% performance in the same period (x1.2 instead of x3.5)
It's funny how "mobile" chips consistently outperform laptop chips these days. If you buy a phone and a laptop in late 16 , it's very possible that the phone has the more grunt.
I warned of this 5 years ago when Intel basically starting rebadging processors (similar perf, different name) and people told me noooo it's just that Intel got sooo powerful that have now hit a "wall", they continue by saying "everybody else will as well).
Of course I called their BS back then and by now we have travesties like this. Computers (that actually need the power) can routinely have lower *raw* performance than your phone.
Soon we'd have software that uses your phone's raw power to speed up your laptop. That's how bad laptops have become out of Intel's monopoly.
Anonymous, 06 Sep 2016Have been reading a lot about not availability of Bluetooth File Transfer on iOS. Question is,... moreThis conversation has been relevant for years, but the clue of where your attitude finds its source in the fact that you only mention it now. Apple ...you, are prepared to talk about the inadaquacy of 3.5 inch screens, now, but not through all the years they kept all their customers in denial. They are always last to the party, first to claim the credit, I would just like to know, how they keep people from the truth, maybe that phrase" I only know what I read" , nails it, you only read what the big "a" permits the media to print. Gsma's story on the German tech site who wouldn't tow the line,( google is you friend ) and a's response shows this in action, that article is gold, by virtue of its rarity. If Hitler would have had "a" in control of their propaganda, he would have won the war.

Have been reading a lot about not availability of Bluetooth File Transfer on iOS. Question is, who uses that anymore? Have you been living under a rock? Bluetooth is slow af compared to its peers and you want to use that?

And then they say - apple is the first one to do it right.

People get so fired up every time iPhone proves to do something as well as or better than the competition, calm yourselves. It's the nature of the beast. Samsung will add 16 cores in its next flagship to make you all feel better about yourselves...
Muthu, 06 Sep 2016Until apple decides to provide those features, with their magnanimity that is. They had 9 years to benevolently dish out said features... I think that train truly left the station. Just stick to Android.
