qualcomm said A7 64 bit is gimmick , but now they working on them , so next year its not gimmick anymore ???
Yes, and we essentially get little or no day to day benefit from these so called high spec phones that mask inefficient operating systems such as Android with chronic bloatware and spyware. This spec race is childish. All this ranting on about how good a spec is now, when is 12 months time you will say how average is current specs, but there are not really any day to day performance gains or really useful software gains as there is too much superfluous gimmicks. OK, screens and cameras have advanced for sure, and 95% of the apps market could be trashed because they are useless, no one uses NFC, GPS is not accurate enough, 64 bit is stuff of 10 years time, so when you boil down to where is the huge leap forward there isnt one, except for competition on Android platforms (which is insecure in any case).
Japanese Kamikaze, 03 Oct 2013False! All Android devices are better than those fruity tech. Snapdragon 800 is way better, br... moreYep so true, people tested only in geekbench 3 and acting like A7 chips rock,actually it doesn't,in geekbench 2 also it still scores the same around 2.5k and beaten by SGS4 3.1k pts,in Antutu still ip5s is crapped. Their selling point is hyping people rather than real changes,because apple does try to sell the ip5 by changing its name to 5c and made with palstic and sell it at a high price,you can compare the specs here LOL. Android and Samsung FTW! their snap dragon processor still beats ip5s,even in geekbench 3 by getting around 3k points,quite beastly isn't it?
check this one.ip5S is pretty weak compared to Note 3﻿ and Sony Z1 in reality
Samsung Galaxy Note 3 score
2983 /watch?v=djGIQ87wmEw,this 3﻿ will confirm you,there﻿ you go﻿ buddy. Z1 and note 3,outperform GB3 in reality. Cheers:D
a complete change in architecture .. a marketing gimmick.
right. someone's cpu founder is late on this one.
(i'm an android user, but i don't like bullshit)
CommentMan, 02 Oct 2013Droid will be better? that was what people said before the release of every droid version... morei just ditched my iphone 5 for a HTC one, the quality of android OS and the Apps is the same, you can just do more on android and enjoy the apps on a larger screen.. you argument my be valid a couple of years ago but Android is quality now.
iFans believe that changing the name of chipsets is innovation.
Prit, 02 Oct 2013Well Apple A7 chip is the second best in Benchmark after Snapdragon 800, its dual core vs Octa... moreFalse! All Android devices are better than those fruity tech. Snapdragon 800 is way better, bro. So you better jelly, bro. iPhones will die!!

Someone, 02 Oct 2013EVERYBODY STOP A MINUTE!!
Please explain how a phone with just 1GB Ram and a Dual Core 1.3G... moreSo much so that Samsung, Asus, LG and others have been caught out cheating at benchmarks.
The only Android makers who don't are Google Nexus and Motorola, which explains their lame scores.
Of course the iPhone 5S beats them all hands down.
Someone, 02 Oct 2013EVERYBODY STOP A MINUTE!! Please explain how a phone with just 1GB Ram and a Dual Core 1.3G... moreArchitecture. And 64bit processor. thats how. The 64 bit processor is probably ONLY used by iOS, a few apps from the app store, and benchmarks. Im not sure if the benchmarking apps use the 64 bit technology but it would make more sense if they did. So qualcom is kind of right because next to no apps support 64 bit. I think apple is going the right way with their processors though. We dont need more cores and more volts. We need more efficiency, better performance, and bettery battery life.
phoneaddict, 02 Oct 2013Trust me android is better when it becomes all 64 bit now apple can enjoy but wait till techno... moreDroid will be better?
that was what people said before the release of every droid version.
they said it will run better on 1gb when the standard was 512mb. now that the norm is 1gb, people are saying 2gb will make it better.
no matter what - accept the fact. Android is a buggy, laggy OS since its not optimized to a set of HW requirements. All Android has is a massive app library filled with clones of each other.
Quantity over Quality.
Gary, 02 Oct 2013From what I can see the Sony Experia Z range is trouncing on the competition. I love my Experia ZLearn how to spell what you bought first. Your credibility got lost at Experia.

Yeah with 2Gb Ram and a 2.2GHz Quad Core CPU.
The 5S is rocking a Dual Core 1.3GHz and 1Gb Ram and is beating every other phone - and nearly keeping up with the Z1 and Z Ultra.
