so do not compare to Samsung...
some other vendors like Sony and Htc do android properly...

for ex., Z1C SoC is on par with iphones 64 bit architecture SoC in performance...

and is actually more complete package for much less buck...

But thats not very smart, when android finally get 64bit Apple have had two years head start, which means when the time is ready to fully use 64bit Apple devices are ready and apps and games already support it.

For android it still takes few years. You know its not going to happen over night, so Apple was very smart to start early to get things ready for future.

Guys please have a look at benchmarks of A7 before judging A8.

The reason Why android vendors are not using 64bit yet because of the limited memory that are currently produced, Samsung will start using the 64bit architecture when they implement 4GB on the SoC, that will be a complete package, until then none will jump on the bandwagon just to say "hey my pee pee is bigger than yours" when it can't be used properly.

The benchmarks exist for the matter of testing the device under the same conditions! Read as same resolution, same time, same render.

If a game it's more optimized on a device it's a different thing and it's on the developers, not the platform.

And by the way, the cheating was easily corrected as the mayority of reviewers point it out about more than a year... not to mention that it wasnt on every device.
