Apple fans are not going to like this, but despite all of the hype surrounding the company's custom A11 Bionic processor, Samsung's Galaxy Note 8 is faster than the iPhone 8 Plus in real-world usage, according to a series of app loading tests. The results run counter to what we have seen in previously leaked benchmarks, in which the A11 Bionic trounced the competition. In a leaked Geekbench test run, for example, the A11 Bionic-powered iPhone X posted a single-core score of 4,061 points and a multi-core score of 9,959 points, putting it well ahead of every Android phone we have tested to date, including ones powered by Qualcomm's flagship Snapdragon 835 SoC. However, synthetic benchmarks do not... Read more...
Even though the prices of flagship smartphones have seemingly increased to astronomical levels over the past year or two, people were still taken aback by the $999 price tag of the iPhone X when it was officially announced by Apple last week. Sure, previous iPhones have come close to reaching that mark when optioned up, but the psychological $1,000 barrier is a big one in the minds of consumers. The iPhone X's price has been one of the most frequent questions tossed at Apple executives that have gone on the interview circuit in the wake of last week's keynote, and Apple CEO Tim Cook addressed the issue head-on in an interview with Good Morning America this week. While speaking with GMA's Robin... Read more...
In the aftermath of Apple's introduction of three new iPhone models early last week, we got our first taste of Apple’s A11 Bionic processor domination via a leaked Geekbench score. The results showed a device with six cores and a "mere" 3GB of RAM absolutely killing it with single- and multi-core scores of 4061 and 9959 respectively. Now that the iPhone 8, iPhone 8 Plus and iPhone X are no longer a secret, benchmark scores for all three are beginning to make their way to Geekbench. These new results confirm what we all witnessed last week, and prove that all three devices pack considerable more processing muscle than what is available from the current Qualcomm Snapdragon 835-powered Android competition....

Following months of rumors, leaks, and a mountain of speculation, Apple earlier this week finally unveiled its next generation iPhone devices, the iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus, and iPhone X (pronounced iPhone 10). While the phones themselves are interesting for what they bring to the mobile sector, what is most impressive is the custom A11 Bionic system-on-chip (SoC) driving these handsets. Given Apple's history of designing burly SoCs, it can be easy to take for granted the performance gains, but there is a lot that goes into designing these slices of silicon. There is typically a three-year development cycle. Let that digest for a moment. What that means is Apple started working on the A11 Bionic... Read more...
Each generation of iPhone brings with it a custom system-on-chip (SoC) with an impressive amount of power, and Apple is keeping that tradition with the iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus, and iPhone X (pronounced iPhone 10). Each of those handsets sports a custom A11 Bionic processor with six cores of computing muscle—four high performance cores and two power efficiency cores. If early leaked benchmarks are any indication, the A11 Bionic is going to set some records.The A11 Bionic is reportedly built on a 10-nanometer FinFET process. We suspect the two power efficiency cores will perform the bulk medial chores to maintain battery life, which Apple says will be 2 hours longer than the iPhone 7. But for... Read more...
