Agreed, the HTC M8 scores 962 single core and 2,761 multi core. When the M9 comes out and it's speculated to have a 64 bit quad core cpu, better screen , 3 GB. What Apple did to their customers will again be exposed. I see the iphone6 as basically an empty housing. It really has a decent cpu and gpu, but starved for memory (16GB storage & 1GB ram) and battery, where android is way more generous, even allows you the flexibility to upgrade to 128 GB without making it a new phone purchase.
It is not fair to compare the galaxy s5 to the iPhone 6.
The device is very old respectively. Also, the single core scores don't really mean much for android devices. All android devices with 4 cores or more ALWAYS run at least 2 cores.
A fair comparison would be to compare the Nexus 6/X to the iPhone 6

S5 2GB version comes in at 2927 and iPhone 6 at 2903 and 6 Plus at 2931 ....
Who is blowing anyone out of what water again? Stow the iFruity favoured weeds, will you?
X, 19 Sep 2014Have you seen the memory speed? Around 7 GB/s.
Compare that with a class 10 microSD card (10M... moreIts true to some extent but if you dive down deep into the individual tests done, you notice that most of the extra performance points are awarded for tasks like encryption that do benefit from 64bit far more than a 32 bit cpu, if we take that our of the equation, then we will start to see that gap diminish very rapidly to the point where the A8 doesn't seem so fast. Its all about balancing the bench marks to areas that are on an even playing surface, the fact is that while the bench mark awards points for doing well in encryption times, you don't really use this in your daily use of the phone.
IM sure a 64 SD 810 ( core frequency lowered to the same as A8 would provide an interesting result. But it wouldn't be fair as its architecture is newer.
Ps, if you want a reasonable way of seeing the iPhone 6 score in 32, half the score in some places as the 64 bit has double registers compared with 32 bit. lol

I agree. I have a 28 inch display that I'm typing on now, and I would know immediately, even from 4 feet away, if it had 1080p, or something higher.

I can only say one thing, do not drive a car for your and our safety and see an eye octor immediately if you can't see the difference and need 65" screens to do so.

rt324, 19 Sep 2014Just imagine if apple would use on their phones the resolutions used on high end droids, imagi... moreTotally agreed, apple fanboy keep bragging about their iphone, not knowing that they had been fooled
1. keep investing on their ecosystem but never had the item you've bought, ie. buying mp3s, your mp3s would gone if you bought a non apple device.
2. Apple known as a very greedy company, they give minimum specs with a very unreasonable price. You got a 1080p device instead of quad hd device, minimum software ability, non customization, restriction.
yet apple fanboy bragging that their phone doesn't lags, your phone doesn't lags bcoz it does nothing. Lol
An apple fanboy for me is only a bunch of people that crazy about prestiges who very pathetic, they were robbed yet they proud about it. I dont see it as prestige, i see it as stupidity.
Also just a thought.... It's funny to me to see ppl argue over who's products better LIKE THEY GET PAID BY APPLE, OR SAM, OR ANY OF THEM TO FIGHT FOR THEM LOL these manufacturers don't even know us nor care about our thoughts haha they just wanna sell products. Again, nothing wrong with supporting your purchase
My HTC one m8 cpu and ram kills the iPhone's 6 ,7, and iPhone 99 lol so I'm happy. Jk, really I'm partial to HTC m8 due to the quality of build, speaker system (cause hey, we all listen to music on our phones wishing it got louder) and customer service 2yrs of updates assuring you that you won't envy new devices due to software just maybe other aspects and I'm quite content with this device all around, especially the speed of it 2.3ghz and 2gb of ram! 32gb internal storage,Exceptional. What else do I need? Aside maybe 4k would be nice!... Though these are my own opinions, and @ the end of the day you like what YOU LIKE and there's nothing wrong with supporting your purchase, but really what does it matter what others say? It's like Xbox and PlayStation. Fact is each device offers something special and I don't think you could go wrong with any of today's flagship devices!
This is so typically Apple.
On the device with the bigger (some might say better) screen Apple has gone with lower specs on the RAM and CPU.
This is also an indication of why Apple has crappy ppi specs compared to other flagship phones. If they decided to provide truly premium displays with high ppi the battery life and performance on the phone would go down the toilet.
With each new release the Apple iphone is being exposed as anything but premium. The exception being the price.
Several years ago most senior professionals and executives that I knew had iphones. Now very few of them still have iphones. More frequently I see office workers and students are the ones using them.
And with Apple Metal running. OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO
My Ipad Air is running IOS8 and a new version of Asphalt 8: Airborne with Metal support.
Better graphics, effects, and boasts a large number of opponents – three times as many as any other Asphalt game.
Poor Galaxy s5
