AnonD-463101, 06 Jan 2017Don't have to , had it , big let down , cant come close to the P9Why was it a let down?

It will be interesting to how capable ARM SOCs really are now that the S835 is compatible with Windows.

The more necessary thing is RAM referring the green robot was not "green" resources, as fast as procie runs, but has a small capacity RAM your phone was totally snail

AnonD-491921, 08 Jan 2017Yes they do because Kyro is a modified A72 and A73 is a generation ahead and SD820 was a quad ... moreKryo 1 is not based on A72. Previous ARM license only allowed clean room design for architectural licensee. Only the recent Built on Cortex license allows modification of ARM's core designs, which is the license Kryo 280 is based on.
Anonymous, 08 Jan 2017Too bad that qualcomm is a full generation behind apple and half a generation behind the rest.... moreYes they do because Kyro is a modified A72 and A73 is a generation ahead and SD820 was a quad core processor while other processors were octa.but the new SD835 is octa and have A73 cores.plus no CPU have a GPU as powerful as Adreno.Apple released their chip 6 months after Snapdragon and in tech industry thats an eternity
Seriously I don't get the terms bigger benchmark score , mostly midrange phones can perform well even the benchmark score isn't that much , what can your phone do if one day the speed is outperforming computer ? I don't see any uses right now.

Yes, please do send it in/publish.
iOS is ASTONISHINGLY well designed. Neither Android or WP matched it in terms of getting the subsystems right at the early stages. Android and iOS have both been evolving (with Android, out of necessity, don't do much faster) but no one has matched the tremendous performance consistency of iOS.
AnonD-491921, 07 Jan 2017Well dude comparing apples greatest chip and intels cheapest chip isnt a fair comparison and e... moreIt is fair. Apple's uses 5w max , Intel's uses 15w.
Also more people have i3 and i5 than those having i7s. So yeah, i7s are great but few own them, also much much more power hungry.

If Google is intended to push function that use the cpu more they should cooperate with the best, like those using vanilla ARM cores instead of the terrible kryo cores.
Seriously why do companies pay licensing to the botching of vanilla ARM cores (A73 absolutely kills kryo on one-on-one battle, in both IPC and per watt performance)?

AnonD-442017, 07 Jan 2017?? The XZ is a beast, very well optimised. (OnePlus 3T user here)Xperia XZ is a seriously underpowered phone which wont age well.
It cant support daydream,closes background apps
Im not against sony but there will be applications which will require more RAM in future and Xperia will get bottlenecked(for eg:In PC even most powerful graphics card and GPU cant run a game,unless it has the minimum required RAM(its 4-8gb).Well with the Vulkan graphics Android will have similar games/powerful software,and Xperia users will be feeling shortchanged
Ghostwolf, 07 Jan 2017I can understand that,and agree those are good improvements. Just don't get this constant r... moreOne thing you cant have more is processor speed.Google will come up with something that will push the limit of these proccessor.It is better to be future proof
AnonD-491921, 07 Jan 2017Apple A9 as fast as desktop GPU?.haha You must be on some special kind of drugsThe dude said that it is almost as wide as desktop cpu, not GPU, and he is right, take a look at anadtec's review http://www.anandtech.com/show/9686/the-apple-iphone-6s-and-iphone-6s-plus-review/4
Mirkran, 07 Jan 2017Yeah, Geekbench, the benchmark who thinks an Apple A10 is faster than a x86 Haswell processor.... moreWut?!? Desktop Hashwell absolutely smokes a9. Laptop i3 is the one that loses but it already did to a57 cores according to phoronix (linux tests)so no surprise there.
