It actually does not matter what the benchmark score if a cell perform well. In performance BASES IOS is perfect but If you count features of ios then.....
On the other hand if you own a good android phone like htc one, nexus 5 (don't like sumsang) etc then performance is also not a issue (believe me I have a htc one and my wife have a nexus 5 we never face a single issue) and when you add android features with it then it's far ahead then ios/iPhone..
I am very knowledgeable about technology, new gadgets and developments in software...Yes, indeed "behind the curve" you say - however, I always ask - does the teenager who needs a phone care about this? Does the average user using social media worry about minute differences in processor performance? My grandparents who are glad to share videos/chat on the go, does this small detail matter to them. Does the parent who buys their child an iphone so as to keep in touch during the day bothered by the iphone 6 GPU stats? Is the couple in a relationship who needs to text/call each other during the day concerned about the GPU of the iphone 6 or S5 or LG G3? Does the employer who needs to communicate with the employees via mobile upset that the iphoe 6 GPU lags behing an andriod phone GPU?
The answer to all these questions is absolutely NOT.
Sometimes many gadget enthusiast/reviewers over-stress important facts but forget that these facts are negligible and irrelevant to the average user of the product, as is the case here with the iphone 6 GPU
Like I give a d@mn? no matter how sh!t it is, Im gonna buy it anyway, because its Apple!
Anonymous, 13 Sep 2014No, their not saying that, they are saying the 6 is just slightly faster then the 5s. IN othe... moreAnd, BTW, in the bench they're talking about in this article, the S5 did beat the iPhone 6. So did some Snapdragon 800 devices from last year.
To All IPhone Haters... I too hate iphones to the core... Yesterday's mobile in tomorrows price... But still I love the apple market themselves and create a brand value to sell thousands.. My friend sold off her new Xperia Z for peanuts and purchased the IPhone 5s for about 900USD in India... Obviously she regrets thr decision now, but thats how apple potentially targets its customers..
moan, 12 Sep 2014my iphone 5s has a Dual-core 1.3 Ghz Processor and 1gig of Ram and never had one problem with ... moreAre you sure? It's probably the reason why my friend threw his laggy iPhone 5S with terrible battery life in a fit of anger.
Very sly company.
Now wonder they did not reveal the clock speeds of the A8 and ram in their iphone 6 models.
The writing is on the wall.
The benchmark result makes no sense. The X Suite App might need to be recompiled to recognize the new hardware. I guess we'll have to wait for iOS8 retest to make sure the GPU is enabled properly.
Every time the apps needs more hardwared, I think 1 gb of ram is not enought for Iphone 6, the desing is amazing but the hardwared not. Please some tell me why 1 gb of ram?
Chrisj89, 13 Sep 2014So what your saying is my Almost 6 Month Old S5 Is faster than the New iPhone that was release... moreNo, their not saying that, they are saying the 6 is just slightly faster then the 5s. IN other words ammunition for slamming apple.
btw, 5s defeated the s5 in speed tests. the 5s which 6 months newer then the 5s, defeated a newer phone in speed test. Take that to the bank.
kindly youtube "5s vs s5 speed test"
So what your saying is my Almost 6 Month Old S5 Is faster than the New iPhone that was released 3 days ago... And that The Big Hype about the new GPU Was over a 4% increase, good job apple making garbage
Anonymous, 12 Sep 2014You shouldn't pretend to have knowledge and boast claims on your first day of using a smart phone."Don't let the name fool you"
ifan are so scared at criticizing apple and demand what they are not getting(HTC did the same, fans turn their back on them).
Its so hypocritical that many ifans went for the plus model after so many year at believing its not so important.
Punyaslok Dash, 13 Sep 2014He may be but I m not.... I hv 5c and Huawei honor 3c. Still I love Android over iOS though it... moreTrue. It's a matter of individual choice, a good example are maseratis there not fast but very expensive. R35 in the other hand is a little cheaper but faster than maserati's or if you want way expensive car lamborghinis and ferraris these are very expensive cars but people buy it. Apple has a different market pie/ share of consumers always than androids. Why bash apples? I'm android user I don't anything gain to me on bash with them so what's is the real catch of this never ending argument right?
