CPU plays a role but obviously much less so. Also I agree with you that Geekbench is not that important, there are better apps showing the same thing about cpu, like physics tests, cpu heavy emulation , video encoding. In all of the A10 absolutely decimates weak Qualcomm.
You're probably a Qualcomm fundie which is why you don't criticise this terrible company that can scarcely touch even last year's performance on extant android chips.
J o m s, 22 Mar 2017And your proof that it is far better in single core performance? Oh wait GB4? Nah, who cares?
... moreAnd your proof is an useless/fake review?
This is the real world performance:
Yes, they're not current phones, but the only reason why I show these videos is that nobody made a comparison video on the current phones. But both phones were released in 2013 September, and it proves that the emulator is running perfectly on iPhone 5S thanks to the superior single core performance, but the Note 3 is struggling. Of course, today's Andorid phones run this game well, so the next comparison sould be the DosBox emulator. Unfortunately nobody made it.

You load an app, it does mathematical calculations like what GB is doing.
You load games, it does CPU and GPU tasks as well.
These are real-world apps and not one-sided ret*rded app like Geekbench.
Anonymous, 22 Mar 2017Geekbench 4 runs cpu workloads , those have nothing to with the underlying OS, they're mathema... moreLoad of BS. CPU is nothing without the OS. The OS is responsible for communication between the app and the hardware. GB is compiled differently and optimized different per OS so if your claiming A10 is as fast as Haswell clock per clock because they both have similar Single Core score then you can join them f**ls of GB believers. A slight change in scoring algorithm will change the overall score of GB and that's what happened from GB3 to GB4.

Whoever wanted an iPhone years ago, already has one. They just upgrade to a newer iPhone like it is a formality because they are already familiar with it or can't let go of their iMessages, FaceTime, and apps they already paid for. Stuck in Apple's ecosystem like a slave.
I do enjoy buying iPhones to profit from. I usually wait for the discount or promo and then sell it overseas. I consider the new iPhones like the Tickle-Me Elmos or Furbies craze for ignorant hipsters and poseurs. Turbo-Man! Then use my iPhone profits to buy better phones with a better mobile OS.
I'm a Google guy, so Pixel all the way for me with Nokia or Motorola thrown in the mix. Typing on my Pixel now and it is so smooth. My S7 edge SD820 would take me 2x longer because it would kinda lag or stutter, and typing on the curves can get annoying. For Android purists, there is only one choice. Pixel is just a rebranded Nexus.
[deleted post]Geekbench 4 runs cpu workloads , those have nothing to with the underlying OS, they're mathematical formulas that only hit the cpu. Geekbench 4 was built exactly so that to be OS agnostic and for the most part it succeeds. Again, stop spreading fud.
[deleted post]What real world tests you are talking about? App launcher are you f#ing serious?
In anything that use the cpu primarily A10 kills any Qualcomm processor including the SD835. From 3Dmark physics test, to video encoding, to SpecInt cpu suite to Geekbench 4. It uses a bigger cpu at the same (or similar process), it makes *sense*!
Stop spreading nonsense and fud. I'm an android fan but you make us seems like uninformed fools.
Someone needs to make a 1080p screen phone with sd835. Oh dang. ❤

But people that can take advantage of the computing and versatility that android offer will not satisfied with iphone
Waiting for it in the real life, hopefully it will be that good if not even better
well, great SoC is coming, now I waiting for xiami release with this SoC, and take my money Xiaomi and grow up become better than appless

I also hate health regeneration in current games. But PSP games and ported old PC games like RTCW Touch and GTA are much better than any crap current game. Their gameplay is much better.
if you would use A10 on android phone the numbers would be far smaller. It is software case. Many more proceses are going on Android devices than on iOS.

Real-world comparisons show that Android with SD821 is faster in general than iPhone 7

The S7 Edge Exynos can't even run GTA SA smoothly at max settings while similar flagships with SD820 / 821 like the Pixel XL and V20 can run the same game with the same configurations flawlessly like an iPhone
AnonD-510098, 22 Mar 2017OnePlus or ZTE imoI'd still consider OnePlus, but ZTE?! LMAO!! Okay so I'm not hating ZTE because I praise the Axon 7's near perfection, but seriously, they were never known for being the fastest, at least not as much as Samsung or others like Huawei, but ZTE could work out for it. For now, I'm totally dead to hear ZTE going to win a speed test

I played NES/Genesis/SNES/GBA emulators on my iPod touch in 2008 and Sony PSP 1000 model and then novelty of playing emulators for an ancient platform wears off really quickly with their flawed graphical experience. Just play CURRENT games and leave the past behind in our memories.

I'm waiting for the day when mobile processors will be enough fast to run desktop Windows with DosBox and then run old PC games like Soldier of Fortune 2 and Postal 2 on an Android phone.
But today, the PC games are still too slow.
