If Apple offers me a free IPhone 7 Plus, I'll gladly test it for them free of charge.
I will then either return it to them, if disappointed with their new device, and promise NOT to mock their product. If happy, I will gladly boast about their marvellous product.
If I genuinely love Apple's IPhone 7 Plus, then the deal is that I keep this phone free of charge. I would be converted to Apple mobile phones for the first time ever, after never owning any Apple mobile phones, or any other Apple products for over 20 years.
Fruit fans will go crazy for this but when Android increase the cores it's bash bash bash apple don't need that many cores.
Why in that case is this appearing now and as usual years behind Android.
Apple= substandard,out date,coppied & overpriced crap.

What does this have to do with android users ? That I don't understand, Apple users don't care with the mad specs Samsung phones, why do they care about apples advanced technologies ??

They are just too locked down for me, I do not use windows or iOS just linux so I hated it since the original.
I have had multiple windows smartphones and i had i-phones since the first one; Then i tried android and 4-5 phones later I still use android.
My company uses i-phones, I get a new latest one every 2 years and I hardly ever use it (have 5s now) and i test it some time when i get it.
In the end i go out and buy an android phone and use the company sim but leave the i-phone on the side in case i drop the android or something just in case.
It is just personal preference, hardware is good enough on most of the smartphones.
hummingbird is not a desktop processor , you need to go back far longer then that. im old enough to have been a 91e in desert shield

It simply involves sticking two off-the-shelf core designs together (a big one and a little one). It's a lazy design manufacturers had to resort to when the 64-bit A7 was announced in order to ensure continued performance gains for Android handsets. It would not be a welcome move by Apple fans or iOS developers.
