aqours, 15 Sep 2017when there is Mediatek vs Snapdragon/Exynos, ppl always talk Snapdragon/Exynos has better benc... moreActually Snapdragon vs mediatek also means open source vs closed!
And that's the greatest reason I prefer Snapdragon on my phone!
And also the greatest reason I prefer Android vs ios!

If this score is right, it means Apple could design a chip that has 4 or 6 of those high-performance cores in an under 20W package for ultrabooks that would rival Intel's 65W desktop i7s in performance or even AMD's Ryzen line. It doesn't make sense. The only other possibility is that Geekbench is bullshit
Swim Swim, 15 Sep 2017Leaves the snapdragon 835 in dust
It has been some years that Qualcomm has stopped trying. It was right about the time that they became the defacto monopoly of android. Intel part deux, much?
It is too sad that there are people still supporting that bureaucratic company...
Oathbreaker, 15 Sep 2017Haters click on every iPhone X because deep down they want it. Trolls every comment section tr... moreOk
Two is Binary, by that I mean before the well publicised demise there was 4 operating systems
Windows 8 is OK, Windows 10 (no Nokia people) is so toxic Microsoft has stopped selling ALL phones as all phone running W10 have problems
Blackberry 10 uses QNX, the s/w Blackberry still develops for Autonomous cars
BB10 is a more secure and 'viable' Android replacement, Blackberry queue with all phone maker to get the monthly security patches
It is Android V IOs, an ad expected IOS destroys competition in Benchmarks
A top down comparison would have Apple iPhones with large gaps for features NOT on iPhones but on Android
It is the bottom up that scoring so high in these benchmarks in someway replace all the features iPhone lacks
It always seems to become partisan...
The issue for me is a simple one as un 2011 my SGS II had a super amoled screen is why pay more
Here is the IPhone 7+, iPhone 8+, iPhone X http://www.gsmarena.com/compare.php3?&idPhone2=8131&idPhone3=8858&idPhone1=8065
Albeit bezel less near 50% more for the same specs, or a flagship Android phone NEW, 2 years after launch
This is not the first time the IPhone 6 is the 4.7 inch version of the 4 inch iPhone 5 which just added Apple Pay but essentially relaunching the same phone 2 years later do check
Having an Amoled Screen is not new technology nor is a 5.5 inch screen on a bezel or bezel less phone.
There will come a point if not already when the cpu responses are imperceptible
It really doesn't matter as the real updates you will pay for.
Apple are on course to being a Trillion dollar company, that is $1000 Billion, ($1 Billion is $1,000 000,000)
Why? Calling say Vitamin C Ascorbic Acid doesn't somehow make it different ir superior
If there is anything different in the phones not a 50% hike, the AMOLED screen costs $70 whereas before $40
Ultimately even if they had a presentation and it was shown that the IPhone X was 98%+ the same as the IPhone 8+ they still would buy the IPhone X
A11 is a good hit for Apple and good to for Android users because at the end if now looking the benchmarks the Android users demands better SoCs for its flagships Samsung, Huawei, Mediatek, Google.. will be forced to, at least, to improve their best SoCs to have them happy. So consecuently we will all win at the end.
Kiyasariin, 16 Sep 2017That is Beyond my knowledge. I know a LOT of things but this one is the Checkmate.Hahah i agree, he's literally stopped my brain from thinking, and my eyes beginning to twitch, help!!
Apple has one device, one OS.
Android has 1,000's of devices and multiple OS's with varying UI's over the top.
If Apple didn't beat the top android chipsets then i'd be questioning Apple.
It's a completely crap victory anyway, what exactly are you going to do with that horsepower?
My Oneplus 5 runs The Windwaker from the gamecube at a solid 30fps like the gamecube did, Tekken 6 on the PPSSPP emulator, God of war, you name it, all perfect, battery lasts two days +
Lol Keep your bench scores for your £1,000 phone lol, iPhone users are the best, they're the gift that just keeps giving :)
Apple could make an advert for a turd and they'd gobble it up and be grateful.
People are foolish to believe this. Let me explain.
Google's Android OS and Apple's iOS are two different smartphone operating systems with two different SDK (Software Development Kit) which is used to develop applications for these operating systems. These benchmark results would have made sense if both the Android Phones & iOS (iPhone X) ran a standard 3rd party universal benchmarking application created for both the OS which supported a similar format for the benchmark app. Apple has the upper hand here, because they are using iOS instead of Android. I doubt Apple might have paid the devs behind the benchmarking apps to zoom past Android's benchmark scores. The end. This is pretty useless. Benchmark.

Still useless as a device. And for your info those benchmark apps are optimized for IOS because Apple pay for that.
GSMArena, are you sure the benchmarks are legit? I mean, I did expect them to beat the Android counterparts, but that score crushes the i7-7560U, the 15W most powerful Kaby-Lake ultrabook CPU(averaging around ~8500 points). Apple's A11 is a 4W CPU for crying out loud, I can't believe it has better performance than a 4 times as hungry intel chip. The 8th gens are much faster, even the i5(~13000), but still this score would make the new iphones much faster than anything but the 15-inch macbook pro(including the Macbook Pro 13 with its i7-7560U). If Apple has the capability to obliterate even Intel and AMD in CPU-making, they would have long designed their own CPUs for laptops too. This score just doesn't feel right, it's either wrong or Intel really got lazy since it had no competition from AMD for years before Ryzen.

Don't get cocky, i am talking strictly about the "know" part. Till, "they" prove i am wrong. Tell us why is Quantum processor in so much need of freeze? Nope, i am not making fun. Nobody could actually explain with real words and nope, i do not like mathematics.
Kiyasariin, 15 Sep 2017To get the simple Explaination? Pretty much yes! A CPU relying on the xISC (CISC and RISC, in... moreAlright! I just saw Exynos 9 has 2 mb L2 cache. The difference in scores between SD835 (1 mb) and Exynos 9 make sense to me now (of course there is more than cache which define the CPU speed). But if Qualcomm and Samsung ramp the cache in their future SoC's, in theory they should also achieve higher benchmark scores.
Kiyasariin, 15 Sep 2017This is what happening when you comment from an S8 ^^;So? What is that device have anything to do with what i said? try me if i care for that nothing but another "smart"phone device you got their. Well, if you actually got one.
Ravuh, 15 Sep 2017How is this surprising? Apple always created the best SOCs. It's their iOS i don't like. That'... moreA11 is good because of iOS. And iOS is good because of A11. They build them together as one product. That's why it calls 'research and development' which is follow with high price tag.
