nouben, 12 Sep 2014Only less than 5% faster !In the presentation they said 50% boost in graphics over A7!
Im really disappointed because the A7 really nailed it and was on par with latest sp800 (at the time)...
Now qualcomm gonna crash the A8 with the 805 and 810.
All that said, Iphones are known for being less demanding than android in terms of raw processing power, so it will be interesting to see how to A8 fares in real life perfornance and the latest qualcomm chips
Oh but it is so advanced and far above everything else!
Even the a7 destroys s800, s801, s805, and all current exynos....
Delusional apple fans.
The cores are good, but limited, by speed, ram, and os.
S3 with Cyanogenmod score better than that Iphone 6.
no lagging.so yay Iphone!
X, 12 Sep 2014Just remember that the S5 processor runs at 2.3 GHz while the A8 at 1.4 GHz. Anyway you can be... moreI don't think that the s3 lags that much because I own one , and it runs very good .It doesen't matter what phone you have , but it matters if you know how to optimize it .You can install cyanogenmod and it will perform better and some other tweaks and you'll notice no lag ever.
Joey, 12 Sep 2014I just pre ordered the iphone 6, android phones may be a but cheaper but then you have to buy ... more"expensive sd cards" -- Surely you must mean EXPANSIVE, as they EXPAND your phones memory. Otherwise that's just plain dumb, as they are the cheapest way to purchase flash memory and the reason the whole tech industry (from cameras to industrial machines) now use them.
Oh well, enjoy your iDiot phone.
X, 12 Sep 2014Just remember that the S5 processor runs at 2.3 GHz while the A8 at 1.4 GHz. Anyway you can be... moreWell... While I do agree Samsung phones gets extremely laggy after 6 months or so. Had S2 and S3, it lags. But I'm currently using HTC One (m7) with SD600(3 generations behind those current high end Snapdragon) but still performs marvelously despite having used it for slightly more than a year now. Recent Nexuses are great consistent performer too. HTC One m8 is buttery smooth too.
X, 12 Sep 2014Just remember that the S5 processor runs at 2.3 GHz while the A8 at 1.4 GHz. Anyway you can be... moreFunny, just recently I had in hands the iPhone of the same epoch as the S3 (the 4S) and it lagged much more significantly than any other decent Android that ever came through my hands.
I have no doubts that even todays very low-end Androids perform better than that.
Bottom line: Time passes by for all models, it's not just the Androids that get outdated...
AnonD-146024, 12 Sep 2014iPhone 3G was design change over original iPhone
iPhone 3GS was performance oriented
iPhon... moreIt is the same with Orchard dwellers, selective amnesia, possible bought on by consuming Apple products well past their expiry date.
The iPhone4 in 2010 became the FIRST iPhone to have camera flash (5MP) & the FIRST iPhone to have a secondary camera
The iPhone4S in 2011 became the FIRST iPhone be Dual Core 1GHZ Dual Core 512Mb RAM AND 8Mp camera
2012 & 2013 iPhone5 and iPhone5S BOTH 1.3GHz Dual Core 1 GB RAM 8Mp camera
iPhone6 1.4GHz Dual Core, STILL 1Gb RAM & 8MP camera
As you know there is the "Welcome to 2012" comparison
But before that IN APRIL 2011 the NON-METAL multi award winning SGS II 4.3" 1.2GHz 1Gb was available, which was sporting an 8MP camera
Benchmark scores do not negate the lack of high end specs in the IP6 and paying an arm and a leg for the "immeasurable?" smooth experience
It is called the Emperor’s new clothes
Apple have simply re-released the IP5S with larger display
Re 4.7" hype 400+ PPI, In Reality ‘Retina Display’ 326 PPI
The iPhone5S battery is 1650mAh it increased by 16% to 1810mAh, a 4.7” screen is 45% more than on the 4” but the IP6 will have the same battery life as the IP5S
A8 was stated being capable? of 2GHz Dual Core hype?
Reality 1.4GHz Dual Core (I expected 1.5 & 1.7 GHz Dual Core as on the BB Z10 & BB Z30)
SAPPHIRE COATING GONE ALTOGETHER? Hype was on 128Gb IP6 and ALL IP6+ also gone is Gorilla Glass, so on both phones Marmoset glass aka shatter proof glass.
This afaik is the ONLY 4.7” 16 GB phone to have ONLY 1Gb OF RAM (so congratulations are in order WEEL DONE APPLE)
Apple is just an intermediary; I have a contactless credit card and my SGS II albeit NFC payments are limited in value 3.5 years ago
Apple Pay uses NFC! and TOUCH ID i.e. the phone to authorise payment secured by FINGERPRINT, the credit card has to be authorised by you.
Apple have simply re-released the IP5S with larger
A8 is 100MHZ faster so marginally better
You somehow lost the Gorilla, and NO Sapphire (iSmell insurance)
Do you need Apple Pay? (and is that progress?)and to work you need your iPhone to be powered!
Iphone6 is should be renamed iPhone5SS as all it is is phsyically bigger Take away applle pay
Here is the Iphone5S v iPhone5SS comparisonhttp://www.gsmarena.com/compare.php3?idPhone1=5685&idPhone2=6378
lele, 12 Sep 2014Damn. That's a very nice gpu you have there. I'm a android user but honestly that hexa and a8... moreFun fact for you: The A8 cant match the SD800 even in lower resolutions. SD805 with Android L...
As some thought, they weren't able to impliment the PowerVR GX6650 in the A8 SoC, so this is part of the reason ut came out this way. Maybe next time around.
X, 12 Sep 2014Just remember that the S5 processor runs at 2.3 GHz while the A8 at 1.4 GHz. Anyway you can be... morehey i phone x fan boy that is true what you said about s5 or s3
but do you have a friend that owns an one m7 or one m8 they are fast when they are new and till now i think that is the best devices for android i really like the new i phone but if it just had the sound quality of the one m8 i would buy right now and i mean both speaker and head phone
apple fans buy the brand and not the spec, thats why apple charge stupid money and stupid ppl will pay for that apple badge. they will argue all day long that iphone 6 is best phone on planet, when the rest of us just snigger at knowing the truth.
all i can say is i envy apple they can pull the wool over so many ppl faces and make huge profits, bravo apple
Iphone 7 wil be 5.0 inches. 7plus 5.6 inch
then they will produce :
Iphone 7 Mini with " Standard 3.5"
Then ... Iphone 7 Alfafa,
Iphone 7 Beta
Iphone 7 Active
Iphone 7 Mega ( bigger ipad mini)
Anonymous, 12 Sep 2014A8 is an overclocked A7, there's nothing new to it. YEP!
Onscreen benchmark.......increased resolution.
If you're looking at Onscreen, the A7 doubles Snapdragon 800 devices. Onscreen tests don't matter: Except in real world use (Which is all I care about and is REAL future proofing)
Just remember that the S5 processor runs at 2.3 GHz while the A8 at 1.4 GHz. Anyway you can bet that the iPhone 6 will run as smooth as in the first day, 2-3 years from now, while the S5 will lag like hell. Just like a S3 lags now. My S3 lags for 2-4 seconds when unlocking the screen, while my wife's iPhone 5 doesn't have any problems.
