People - it doesn't really NEED a capable GPU cause it doesn't exactly do much!
Ohhh so bad show the isheeps how far behind this is from the competition. They were barking about iphone 6 beating the current flagship by a long margin but hey guess what its not even close.
I just pre ordered the iphone 6, android phones may be a but cheaper but then you have to buy expensive sd cards and you get crappy android os, i been using ios 8 for a while now and its easily the best mobile operating system, anthoer huge advantage you android fanboys forget its the excellent resale value of iphones, no body wants a 1 or 2 year old android.. Theres a reason iphones are more expensive, its because their better, your buying the whole package...
iPhone 3G was design change over original iPhone
iPhone 3GS was performance oriented
iPhone 4 was design change model
iPhone 4S was performance oriented
IPhone 5 was design change
IPhone 5S was performance oriented
Now iPhone 6 is a new design
It's performance oriented model will come next year.
Having said that the performance of iPhone 6 isn't bad. You may think it's underpowered compared to android flagships. Though truth is that S5 or Note 3 could SCORE a little more in tests but they'll have to do with android which isn't as performance oriented as iOS. iOS is anyday lighter & faster. So even though it may score a bit less than a few others. It will still provide a very smooth experience.
DAN13L, 12 Sep 2014It's obvious that it would be behind the curve. It's only 20% faster than the 5s. Newer phones... moreNewer phones didnt have that fast a predecessor. The Apple A7 has good graphics performance even on iPad retina resolution of 2048x1536, then the faster A8 will easily handle 750p on iPhone 6 and even 1080p on 6 Plus. However my assumption is that if this is hexacore the 6 Plus and the iPad Air 2 will use octacore GPU. If anyone is worried about GPU performance then worry about the Note 4 and its QHD display, keyword is DALVIK. No chance in F the N4 can keep up with this in onscreen graphics tasks.
I'm an iPhone 5S owner and i already knew the iPhone 6 was nothing special, hence why I'm not going to buy one.
This is a poor show from Apple this year, the 5 to the 5S was a decent upgrade all they seem to done is tweaked the A7 and slap A8 on it for the bigger screen, I can't wait to see if there any real improvment in the camera aswell over the 5S.
So where are all the iFanboys saying that it's going to trounce the competition on performance???
It's obvious that it would be behind the curve. It's only 20% faster than the 5s. Newer phones are many times faster than their predecessor.
Apple is just scamming its consumers. The worst part is, they keep buying.
Is this possible? I think the Apple is going to be powerful stuff! Im keeping my SGS5 though
