      Higher benchmark score also means one more thing... the higher the score the more future proof the phone will be. You get a Samsung note 9 for 1000 dollars and after two years is getting slow and laggy. You get an iPhone for a 1000 dollar, too but after 4 years it's still fast. I believe those later iPhone with A11 and A12 chips can still be very solid performers after 5 years.

Gary does another video about benchmarks and agrees that they do a good job of testing raw performance in a device. And it does a fairly good job of testing real world usage. So it was only speed tests that Gary disagrees with.

I always ask speed testers to test in app performance if you want to check CPU / GPU capability, but none seems to be able to come up with any result. Probably since app loading speed is the easiest to understand by most people.

              Tell me you upload/share 2-3GB sized videos u recorded over messenger/whatsapp or social networks?
              Btw whatsapp facilitates sending original files without compression via docs mode! Yet apple went another mile to boast some useless gimmick feature already available to users!
              And iFans are fiercly holding on to that plank after the massive shipwreck of xs series reception fail..soon to be called iSurvived! ;P

                When you send them or upload them somewhere usually requires compression. So it is useful! iOS does that anyway, no additional software needed. Try sending a 4k video on messenger, or a part of it via email.

                  Anonymous, 21 Sep 2018Wow. Lot of people still believe those speed tests. I’m ... moreSpeed test is nothing else as a test for RAM management and internal memory speeds, nothing really to do with cpu or gpu. Been telling it forever, but most readers here are completely clueless about hardware and how it works, so you do what you can, but majority are just here to troll empty.

                    Well it is nothing new here, already from GeekBench 4 result you could form a opinion that it is fastest smartphone chipset in a planet. Some typical Andoid fanboys will tell you that it's because of iOS but kudos to GSMA for outing video editing results and some app opening times(well this one more goes to internal memory speeds when to cpu).

                        Wow. Lot of people still believe those speed tests.

                        I’m just gonna put up a video about how speedtests aren’t a trusted source to test a socs power.

                        Gary from android authority explained it well.

Such as opening Instagram, or your email. You won't benefit from that extra power from opening apps when the phones already have enough power. Unless you play games or transcode videos or whatever.

It's only games and transcoding video (as I said in my original comment, if you bothered to read it) it's faster but you won't notice a difference opening Instagram with that extra power, therefore saying, what's the point for the average consumer?

                                  Does Apple use some kind of Quick-Sync alike tech to maximize those? Or is it just a prove how powerfull iOS optimized ecosystem and coding? I'm not sure.

                                    It may have top performance in benchmarks, however, when it comes to real life use, there are phones from 1-2 years ago that are faster. Does not mean anything.

                                    Samsung Galaxy Note 8 & Sony Xperia XZ Premium, for example are both faster in many instances.

                                      Bewildered , 20 Sep 2018The Kirin 980 was the first announced 7nm SoC it is 5G and ... moreBewildered you yourself said it mate kirin 980 is 1st announced its not launched yet or not reviewed by any experts or consumer so announcing 1st doesn't mean anything here hence i said a12 bionic made by tsmc is 1st 7nm chip in the phone industry.
                                      and about the 5g thing .... ya u r ri8 apple is on 4g soc .. as we also know apple don't really rush thing up or u can say they don't really need to (brand image)
                                      if u see the history android come with 4g network 1st later apple followed it same will happen this time, and in every year flagship android network soc were superior to apple soc, i had shared u a link below check it ........ Why Apple's in no rush to sell us 5g phone ?
