This is not a hardware issue but software issue and you make out android lags all the time this is not true and clearly you have not used the new android flagship phones. All computers smartphones lag but the majority is to do with software. The phone are more than capable of running any app without issue of it has been well optimised to do so. You also need to take in a count display size.

Almost all the new high graphics games struggle with most of android phones. Galaxy S6 is actually first android device which have enough performance to run most of games smoothly, not still quite iPhone 6 but close. Every else android phone lags playing hig graphics games so far which i have seen.

There isn't really any game on a smartphone that any flagship device will struggle with but apps will get more graphically demanding and will need a lot of memory (ram). Apps are not the only tasks run by processing power things like OS, camera, displays also use the processor. Like I stated in a earlier comment there are benefits from both kind of processors. The octa or duel quad core swaps between lower cores to higher cores to preserve battery life for the huge display resolution and shares task load between cores to run a demanding app. iPhones duel core processor just uses two powerful cores but in doing so battery power is consumed faster this is why iPad Air 2 has moved to a tri core on its A8x to give more power with less battery consumption so more cores will be needed why do you think every major chip make has moved to multiple cores?

I'm sure Apple are not just going to use the same as what they already have on the 6. iPhones have always had arguable the best camera on a smartphone up until this year I doubt Apple will be happy to let its competition take that title from them. Never said its a bad camera but they do need to upgrade it to match the s6 and G4. I'm positive on the upcoming iPhone they will make the changes and it will be a huge success but just pointed out they do need to upgrade some hardware to match other manufacturers.

That benchmark tool also shows how many cores games using. That guy was very surprised because most of games only used two cores, for example very heavy games like modern combat 5.

Most of people doesn't see the difference anymore if they doesn't use magnifying glass to look the photos.
All current flagship phones takes great photos already except HTC M9.
So i don't think it's much needed upgrade for iPhone, but im sure they are making it better, but not sure if it going to make much difference anymore. Only place where is lot to improve is lowligh photos.

Read the comments I did not put about the a8 cores being inferior at all. I did how ever mention that other aspects of the hardware will need to change like the ram and also upgrading the camera. I do not disagree that apples different approach to using a duel core rather than a multicore is working for them but what you have been commenting to others is that multicore has no use. I think you should learn more about the benefits of having a quad or duel quad core chip as you clearly only get your information from biased web sites. There are benefits for using both types of processors like preserving battery life on larger resolution displays where android devices are clearly more advanced. Yes single core performance is good to run smaller apps and tasks but the exynos is not far off from achieving the same power on singlecore performance but gets a much better multicore score on benchmark tests. The Octacore is basically a duel quadcores that switches between the chips lower and higher. This is again to preserve battery life for the 2k plus displays. Yes s6 needs a few updates to make the device run flawlessly as most new devices do but it has the hardware to do so. iPhone will need to upgrade the ram because apps will carry on improving so will need the extra memory. It is like you are in denial or something. Don't read things and twist them again. If your struggling to read the comment get someone who can read for you!!! MEMORY (RAM) Will be just as important as processing power.

Why would android run slowly with iPhone when iPhone 6 hardware is among best in the market? You need to understand that Apple just using different approach in CPU design. Apple have two very powerful cores running while android devices using more cores with less single core power. Clearly what Apple doing works great, because every year they have fastest device in the market and im sure this year not going to be any different because iPhone 6 can already keep up with newest android flagships. Or do you really believe with S6 hardware iPhone 6 would be like two or three times faster phone than S6? Wouldnt that be very funny? I really don't believe that.
I want to know which is better to get.
iphone 5s or iphone 6 ?

Maybe coming for android someday too... But well hey atleast you guys have your cores while we iOS users gets all the good stuffs :)

You keep trying to find faults on the newer phones to make the iPhone 6 as good yes the iOS makes it super quick but if it was using android OS it would be on par with a mid rang device. As android is improved it will get quicker and be able to take advantage of the latest hardware. iPhone with 1 gig of ddr3 ram compared to 3 gig of ddr4 is no competition. Don't twist my words as you do everyone else's. The problem is with the multicores is that at the moment like the 64bit processors its all a bit gimmicky because apps are still not designed to take advantage of them. This will change and when it does the android phones will have the hardware ready along with improved OS they will make a difference. Multicores due get used its silly saying they don't they are designed to share the work load off tasks, new apps will take advantage of this also. There is not just the processor and ram difference but also the camera difference too lg and Samsung are without a doubt leading the smartphone market not saying the iPhone's bad but it's another loss to android phones. Same with Wireless charging and other features you could say a device don't need them but the majority of phone owners would use them also. I'm sure you will try to twist my words but frankly I don't care. Apple will need to defiantly up the ram on the next device along with a better camera, I'm sure they will but that still leaves the iPhone 6 behind the latest android devices and the upcoming iPhone.
[deleted post]Except the guy with S5 believes everything too and that guy who said he don't like Apple products said also that the phone is fast and the screen sticking out. So those two guys kind a ruined your thing.
Am a non iPhone user, but astonished to see that only one now two models can keep its price and demand stable throughout the year. Personally I hate fr many reasons as I have worked back once in its supply chain. Everything is assembled by Foxcomm many pieces stolen ad sold fr free as per its original price. In 2014 I owned 5s its s toy and half features of and ios. That's Folks.

The only reason iPhone is as quick as it is, is because of its iOS. The hardware is no longer competition. The issues with android at the moment is to do with lollipop and the memory leak issue on the s6 is down to software also. Iphone has 1 gig of ddr3 ram. Most androids now have 3 gig of ddr4 don't tell me the one is better unless you know nothing about ram. As androids OS improves it will make better use of hardware like the multiple core processor chips you keep banging on about. Anyway the camera is better on android, display much better. Iphone 6 is matched by last years android smartphone not this years. I think you will be waiting a while until Apple make a phone to rival the s6 edge or lgg4. By the way Samsung maybe making part of the a9 chip so they can't be as bad as you make out after all. I would love to see a iPhone handle androids OS and higher screen resolution it would be funny watching it struggle against mid range smartphones.
I have recently switched from android to iPhone (2 weeks; Had been using nexus 5 since 1.5 years)
The only 2 areas where iphone 6 is better than nexus is the battery and the volume of speakers. Other than that, Nexus outperforms the iPhone by a long margin. For most things, I have to make a touch or two extra than i used to do on nexus. Surprisingly, even the responsiveness of touch is better in Nexus (I was not expecting this) The good thing about apple is that the software in itself is so optimised that 1 gb ram is sufficient and one thing to note is that i am comparing it with nexus and not with android phones in general. Nexus 5 is a beast. Apple is also a beast but nexus is simple the better beast. Other android phones suck only coz the manufacturers customise them so heavily that even 3 gb ram and octacore processors dont matter
Apple is making a huge push against privacy invasion, which is opposite to Google and Android's model of business. With iOS9, also, the incredible 3 year support of OS is extended to 4! iPhone 4s will run iOS 9, a phone introduced in 2011!
Any wonder people are loyal to the brand?
Seems that Android loyalty should be deemed sheep, given how their customers keep getting screwed over, yet they keep going back for more punishment, while giving away all personal info. Thankfully, waves and waves are switching over after learning their lesson.

That phone can easily compete with S6 with third of the price. Luckily Chinese companies can't make ridiculously cheap iOS device so Apple is safe, but these kind of companies are very bad for big name android OEMs.
Samsung should be very frustrated because Chinese companies sell that kind of phone only with price of the parts and doesn't do any profit, but bigger companies can't use that kind of strategy, they have to do money.
