The iPhone 8 posted mind boggling Geekbench 3 scores, the iPhone 8 single core score in some cases beat the some other flagship multicore scores, in any event the Note 8 was nowhere near the iPhone 8
So you watch this video and you realize that the lagging comments must be based on score alone
The XZ 1 compact did NOT post the best benchmarks by far http://www.gsmarena.com/sony_xperia_xz1_compact-review-1660p5.php
The real life performance however as you can read was excellent... OK
I'm an android user since ever, from Apple the only things I had was some iPods (old one and an iPod Touch).
I love Android and I hate iOS, but Apple's hardware is impressive, specially GPU.
All in all, a smartphone with Apple A11 Bionic + 6GB/8GB RAM running Android 8 would be the best. Period.
Tech-9, 28 Sep 2017just because iPhone have double faster memory read speed mean iphone can open games faster Also the iPhone renders half of the pixels which is much less demanding to the gpu and processor!
I don't need to watch a video about it. I know that even the iPhone 6s beats the Note8 and any other Android phone. Hate to say it, but it's true
Do the tests with an Xz1 compact and a oneplus 5, the fastest phone and the best multitasker respectively.

Bezeless is a godsend to usability if done right (proper palm rejection). It's what was needed for year in phones (both big screens *and* small size)

One's just going to slow down within a few months. Buy a flipping Sony phone; bezellessness ruins usage.
Anonymous, 28 Sep 2017I think apple chips are amazing its ios that sucksI agree. Would never switch Android to iOS, but their chipsets would be nice to have and run Android.
AnonD-80334, 28 Sep 2017Also Note 8 is not running Oreo, latest android.Thanks cousin!!!!
Samsung is the master of the real workhorse multitasking phones. The synthetic boosting of performance during the first 2 minutes of a benchmarking app that Apple does with their "bionic chip" has nothing to do with real life usage.
Anonymous, 28 Sep 2017I wonder when people realize that this is absolutely NOT the case. Did you watch iPhone 7 vs 7... moreAdding hundreds of gigs of RAM to iOS simply won't make any difference as iOS DOESN'T use neither app caching nor suspend to RAM.
Ben, 28 Sep 2017To everybody who says samsung is faster just shut up and wait for that update heck even the ip... moreEven the mediocre Android phone beats anything Apple has to offer when it comes to launching anything that is suspended to RAM as iOS simply doesn't work that way. RAM is about 100x the speed of NAND. This is curtsey of Linux RAM management.

Apple has total control over Hardware and Software, hence it should be optimized from the get go, while Android shares SW and some Hardware between manufacturers.
