Fastest or not, you're still gonna ride whichever is going to take you t... more...if BMW had the fewest kilometers, the most outdated look on both software and hardware ... Then indeed Apple would be like BMW. Then again BMW is often the opposite, one of the most innovative car companies.
Apple being Americans Actually looks more like General Motors or Ford at best.
Sony is Toyota
Sharp is Honda
Samsung is Kia
The Chinese have no equivalency. They'd be new players but very dynamic. Maybe Tesla (new designs like for example the Mi Mix) ... but not a very good comparison either.
Anonymous, 09 May 2017So true. Then if you want to buy other device, you can just trade or sell the s8/+ and I'm sur... morei know that oneplus 3t and maybe the upcoming oneplus 5 will load apps MILLISECONDS FASTER THAN THE S8/S8+, heck! You are not that in a rush that you need those extra milliseconds just to get through. What we need as customers, is a jam-packed experience. Meaning, it is a collective term for overall user satisfaction, be it in speed, exterior design, camera etc. Samsung, of all other phones i used, delivers this kind of experience. Though the battery and speed may throttle in a few months, its not that bad to think of upgrading to other phone.
Phones are like cars. Fastest or not, you're still gonna ride whichever is going to take you there. It's still gonna be like this:
It cheats. It uses the same SD835 that every 2017 flagship is using. OnePlus merely let's its SoC to not throttle while running geekbench. Which is cheating and inconsequential one as it still runs SD835 ... which is nothing earth shattering (just 10% faster than last year's Exynos)
AnonD-3124, 09 May 2017Still, i wont trade that AMAZING SCREEN AND EXPERIENCE that you get on an s8/s8+ with that SMA... moreSo true. Then if you want to buy other device, you can just trade or sell the s8/+ and I'm sure many people will buy it. You can even get like 2-3 OnePlus 3Ts for the s8/+'s price or even 2 OnePlus 5s. Hahaha. What the heck is wrong with people?
How does one cheat benchmark tools like antutu
? I would have thought that they conduct tests themselves or is it a simple tool. Once again pardon my ignorance
Hoffmann, 09 May 2017Aand once again, Apple beats the sh*t out of other flagships in single-core scoreI hear that's great for running the calculator app :)
Cheating or not - this is pretty much on par with other SD835 devices.
Xiaomi Mi 6 scored 2006 for the single-core result and 6438 for the multi-core result.
I'd take this score with a grain of salt. OnePlus was recently caught red handed inflating scores on the 3T in Antutu
Still, i wont trade that AMAZING SCREEN AND EXPERIENCE that you get on an s8/s8+ with that SMALL DIFFERENCE IN BENCHMARKS. Anyway, the price of that oneplus may attract you, but i'd rather go still with samsung :)
Lebza72, 09 May 2017Pardon limited technical knowledge. Why Is the Xiaomi Mi 6 missing in the list? Yes it missing cause the source doesn't want to reveals that it is actually better then OP5 and OnePlus have been caught cheating on score once and likely to do this again...
Doping in Olympics and Cheating in Mobile benchmarks is More common than we Think
I think it's weird though, first run i did was 2000+ on single and 6700+ multi on my 8895 S8 (2021/6790 last run). Why are the official scores lower?
This is on geekbench 4.1 and the XZ Premium was on geekbench 4.0 so its not a good comparison
Lebza72, 09 May 2017Pardon limited technical knowledge. Why Is the Xiaomi Mi 6 missing in the list? Seems that Xiaomi got caught cheating....
