Duel, 03 Oct 2017" PhoneBuff proved Note8 is faster than 8 Plus."
Actually 8 plus was faster, it won the fir... moremy LG G5 beat the iphone 7 plus in more than half the speed test i seen.
So what the point here?
I found something funny about new Apple A11 bionic soc.
its GPU is a joke.
Its some benchmark its slower than the GPU in the Apple A9 or apple A10 fusion soc.
Compared to adreno 540 its even nearly 50% weaker in many test.
So thats how they got those cpu performance.
reduce gpu performance and size on the die so reduce heat from GPU and put all in CPU.
Look good in benchmark but on the long run its will give a bad experience for VR and or gaming and GPU intensive app.
What i find funny is no one speak about this on tech review website lol.
imRGZ, 03 Oct 2017Well, apple made regular iPhone 8 unworthy and irrelevant to buy now. One can be safe to go wi... moreJust wow... every year regular(smaller) iphone is unworthy and too expensive against the bigger + model,yet somehow it menages to out sell it 5 to 1!
That something I'd expect from fandroid but not a fellow iphone user.Just remember there is a reason,actually hundreds milions good reasons why Apple stick to 4.7" and even bring back 4".
Anonymous, 03 Oct 2017I really wonder everyone notice xperia bezel but not iphone..How ironic, not only this, and the repetitive design from 2014, at least Sony did some new touchs in 2016.
Oathbreaker, 03 Oct 2017I believe Apple should have never had "s" models. Next year if the next iPhones look like the ... moreNext years iPhone X logically will be called iPhone XS, for the extra small cutout in the top. ;)
Apple need to increase the battery capacity of non plus model... Really very poor battery life.
Thanks, gsmarena. Very generous reviews of realistic 66hrs of battery life, others brided site rated the iphone 8 battery better than s8??? Im buying sony xz1c, i like small phone but never again buy apple after the iphone5.
Rimoti, 03 Oct 2017Nothing about the iPhone 8 #splitgate yet? Only if the current 2 becomes hundreds like Samsung's S7, then yes.
Oathbreaker, 03 Oct 2017I believe Apple should have never had "s" models. Next year if the next iPhones look like the ... moreThe S naming was perfect. It was no disingenuous like the numeric naming of S family phones.
See S means "process", like upping the number means a new generation.
So you had iphone (1), iPhone 3G (2nd gen), iPhone 3gs (still 2nd gen), iPhone 4 (3rd gen), iPhone 4s (still 3rd gen), iPhone 5 (4th gen), iPhone 5s (4th gen still), 6 (5th gen), 6s (5th Gen), 7 (6th Gen), 8 (6th gen still).
Iphone change gen every two years. One could say that since iphone 6 we're in the same gen actually. So 7 should had been named 6s 2016 and 8 6s - 2017 ... if we were to be frank.
It's actually iphone 7 that messed things up. It made minor changes yet upped the number. By comparison 6 had different size, design, aspect ratio and screen size , all major *external* differences. Same between iphone 5 and iphone 4, same between 4 and 3gs (diffent size, design, resolution in that case)
Oathbreaker, 03 Oct 2017I believe Apple should have never had "s" models. Next year if the next iPhones look like the ... moreagreed. Hoping they call the next generation iPhone 12 so that it is in line again
i think the poor quality of the lightning cable should also be mentioned as one of the biggest flaws of this phone. i hate how fragile it is
I believe Apple should have never had "s" models. Next year if the next iPhones look like the X, still call it XI. The iPhone 4 was the only named properly for the generation it was released. 4s messed up the order. We should be on iPhone 11 this year. Many cars look the same year after year but still are labeled the year they will get released.
Apple should either drop the numerics and just call it iPhone like they do to their Macs and iPads. Or call it XI since X gave them a fresh start at naming them. So by 2020, we would have iPhone XIII and it would mean that iPhone is 13-years old that year. Apple really screwed up the naming thanks to the s naming.
Rimoti, 03 Oct 2017Nothing about the iPhone 8 #splitgate yet? It happened to 2 phones in china, why should i care. It's not like they exploded right in your hand
savage, 03 Oct 2017Now where are an isheep army that always bash sony about bezel,about low battery? Iphone 8 had... moreThose are not the iPhone users, we are friendly. You should look out for Samsung users. But as far as I can tell, Sony and OnePlus fanboys are the most aggressive ones.
PiCosm, 03 Oct 2017Why would anyone want to hack your phone and how would they know you were important or even nearby?"Why would anyone want to hack your phone"
If every fandroid thinks like that, I hope that you soon start to use online banking and using android pay, then you will see what your "customization" gets you
AnonD-700950, 03 Oct 2017Sorry , I disagree with you.Nice to see that you love fps using touch screen, it's not for me, cos it just feels so clumsy and imprecise, but there again, I only play dedicated portable video game consoles for current generation Games and use ps3 or ps4 dual shock controller for emulation on my phone for retro games, also I own around 30 controller from 5 generations of video games, including dedicated twin stick, flight stick, 4 arcade style joysticks, even para para paradise infra red controller

It is competitive based on the pricing because it have the current high-end flagship horsepower with a decent price, very competitive with Apple
