I am very happy Android user of midranges to flagships devices since 2010(samsung,htc & asus) currently happy & satisfied with samsung note 4 N910C.I never rooted all my devices. Yes all my devices needed to be tweak to achieve smooth performance & great experience..Well i guess GENUINE android user know this & that why we never really care how great the iphone has come so far..Customizeable is Android world & that feature still can't be found in IOS.
nicky, 04 Oct 2015No, Apple thinks low specs are cool. Dont ask me why.Because iphone don't need it.
If you have worst sodtware, you Need more RAMs and higher specs like samesung

They just need to beat android and what a beating apple handed to them. With the low resolution screen, apple is 3 times better on screen. Off screen, it's still twice as good or more as galaxy phones in fps
More and more reviewers agree that the 6s and 6s plus are the best smartphones of 2015. Good job Apple.

I'm saying: I know that. So the phones doesn't run at full speeds all the time as it's not needed. It's the same with the computers to. The CPU and GPU never runs at full speed except for when it's needed on computers to.
So this is normal on both things.
You said: Clocking phones at its maximum speed in benchmarks is considered as cheating as it'll give a false information on the devices performance.
I'm saying: Aren't you just going against what benchmarks is all about with that argument?
Do you consider a car that goes up to it's maximum speed that the car is announced to come with for cheating in a drag race if it hits it's top speed there?
Or do you consider the Koenigsegg Agera R car to be cheating for using a race fuel that can take the car from around 900 HP (with normal octane) to around 1050 HP that it's announed to produce with this racing fuel?
A benchmark application is to determine how powerfull the smartphone is. If you want to find out how the phone performs under normal usages, you actually have to try out the smartphone yourself to figure that out. Because what i might consider normal usage on my phone might be considered as extreme usage for you.
So there is no answers for me or you on what's good normal usage as we humans are different and sees things different.
Before: people are bashing iPhone for lacking hardware Specs,
Now: people are bashing iPhone for being a beast-best.

Maintain at 750p resolution is the key of APPLE i phone success.
Lower reso mean more smooth fps and better gaming experience.
with this level of benchmark result, we can say that the new GPU=[ PowerVR 7600GT ] already beat the power of last generation home console...Playstion3/Xbox 360.
Good job APPLE.....

Disclaimer: I used to have a MacBook Air (top of the line) and an iPhone yet after reflecting on my current gadgets usage I realised that both gadgets are way to expensive for what I need. I did eventually replace my MBA and iPhone into a Chromebook and Chinese phone at 20% to 25% of Apple price.
I understand that Apple products are stylish with premium quality which is reflected to their price (and branding) nonetheless in my case I prefer to save those differences and use it for my future. Each to their own though.
That battery life is pretty poor. i'm sure most users would sacrifice an extra mm to get an extra 20-30 hours.
