You need high-speed RAM to compensate for poor single-core performance.
Anonymous, 07 Feb 2017Still a problem with single core performance.. Single core will always be a problem....for android though. Single core is a problem solved by more RAM. Because newest chipset can go for 10nm only with 2.4 Ghz...But A73 in kirin is awesome. Comes down to optimisation. Which will be the best on OnePlus probably.
But this figures are barely over Kirin 960. So Kirin 965 should be better.
GoingHomeAgain, 07 Feb 2017Yet, my Nexus 5 is still disgustingly quick. My iPhone 4 too (at least that's what I tell to myself). Point is phones can always get faster and until we'd get "instant interaction" there would be room for improvement. SOC is secondary in importance anyway, ram amount is more important as recalling from ram often is the best predictor for a speedy phone.

Again, look at the website or general apps comparison, A10 is slower in comparison LoL.
Who cares, you will see zero difference in day to day operations from last generation devices, even 2 year old phones, these benchmarks are only for geeks.

Some apps may benefit 4 cores instead of 2, like games, heavy photo edit,heavy usage of chrome,but in most scenarious single core performance is more important than the multi core performance. Most apps don't use the SOC at 100%.
J o m s, 07 Feb 2017That's because with A10, GB gives more weight on tests that don't translate to real-world. Single core score is real world test, this is the way you open and use apps,browse Internet etc, but yeah multi core test is just synthetic bench, the SOC rarely has 100% load.
835 can be clocked higher than 1.9 GHz.. Expect higher scores in other devices. ;)
If it scores 2000 single core at 1.9GHz, then it will score 2600 single core at 2.5GHz, it's normal clock speed, pretty good, not even close to Apple 10 Fusion's 3300, but a solid 40% increase over Snapdragon 821, and 52% over Snapdragon 820.
