The new chrome beta demolishes safari in ios 6. Also the snapdragon s4 pro has a faster gpu than the a6 and it completely destroys the a6 in cpu based benchmarks.

Personally, I would like to have a Thunderbolt port and a dock that I can connect to a display and have it be my Mac Mini.

No. The A6 is 1.5 fps faster at native resolutions where it counts.



Quote:
and the egypt classic is vsync limited (in the android version) hence why you don't see it above 60.
It managed 78.2 fps vs the iPhone's 91 in Anand's graph.

No, if anything, it's on par or slightly below the dual core A6 in real world application benchmarks.

If they're legit non-OC'd scores and include the iPhone 5 in their graph, please post them.

Negative. The S4 pro's gpu is just oh so slightly under the tri core A6 GPU. As for FLOPS, the S4 pro on paper should blow the A6 out but it doesnt in the real world

And current Chrome on iOS isnt faster then Safari nor does it perform as good

Those specs would create new critics to replace the ones that were silenced.

Remember many Apple critics simply don't like Apple.

I was referring to chrome on android which is actually a separate browser. The chrome on iOS is just safari with the old JavaScript engine because apple doesn't allow this party browser engines.

Rather than announcing one new iPhone, I believe Apple will do two.

One based on the current 4" iPhone, and one much larger. I'm thinking 5.4" 2272x1280 display w/ IGZO (483 ppi).

This way people that are interested in a smaller phone have a choice, and no compromise is needed on the upper end.

The iPhone 5 drops to $99, and the 4S to zero.

Im waiting for iOS 6.1 where Apple made Safari even faster then it is now as they always update Safari every .1 patch

I think the only change the next iphone would need to sell would be different colors similar to the ipod touch

I am a big Nexus Android nerd, would be happy to come back to an iPhone. But hardware spec's are not keeping me away, it's the OS. Apple needs to overhaul iOS, update the stale grid of app icons that haven't changed since 2007. And yes a little larger screen would be nice too, around 4.3" would be perfect, but first update iOS.

With Forstall out and Ives and Federighi in charge, a revamped iOS is just a matter of time.

"But, but, the Android (XYZ) does better than the A6 when you set the resolution to 1x1 and run Angry Birds with the brightness turned way down..."

Statements like that seem to be the general rebuttal from the Android crowd when the A6 tramples whatever processor they use in comparison.

It's alot like walking into a restaurant and asking "What food DON'T you have" and then when they answer saying "Ahhh that's what I HAD to have, you are a crummy restaurant!".

They pick the one crazy benchmark that the A6 falls a tick or two behind in and act like it's the only one that means anything (saying it's a more "demanding" test lol...).

Face it, Apple did a GREAT job with the iPhone hardware. Despite the lame argument of NFC being a "big" deal, there's really no argument from anyone unbiased that the iP5 is a beast. It's not everything, but it IS funny how much the fandroids have been put on their heels. They are so used to having the "but ours has more benchmarks" argument that now that they don't (or it's at least EVEN), suddenly they don't matter any more.

It's a great study in human defensiveness.

The iP5 is PLENTY "innovative". Sorry.

iPhone ?:

-NFC

-Liquid Metal shell
-LTE (possibly LTE-A)
-Quad core A7 (or A8) with quad core graphics
-1-2 GB RAM
-iOS 7 (or 8)

Obviously the big kicker would be how iOS evolves from here (given new leadership with Cue, Ive and Federighi) - but with Apple undoubtedly being forced into a bigger screen, they could shut everyone up and make the other OEMs pee themselves by simply doubling the current iP5 resolution (less work for devs) and adding IGZO. Not only would they continue to have the most accurate display in the biz, they'd have the undisputed champion of them - probably for some time (depending on when this would be viable).

The other big question mark is the liquid metal shell - which will come at some point, we just don't know when. I tell you what - give me this phone and an iOS with Ive's design expertise and some tweaked software enhancements and Apple is back on top.

What do ya'll think it would take for Apple to grab back the crown?
Yes I think a larger wider phone is key.

Both IOS 6 and Jellybean have their advantages. Jellybean seems a little fresher but IOS is very intuitive and a mature but outstanding platform.

Despite having multiple devices in an Apple ecosystem I bought a S3 because I refuse to browse the web with such a small screen and adding only vertical real estate does little to increase browsing utility.

22 million S3 smart phone buyers apparently agreed paid a premium for a Samsung phone that was squarely positioned price wise etc in Apple's premium space. Apple allowed themselves to be beaten in the premium space they created by one again having this let them eat cake philosophy. 4" phone is the appropriate size those that don't agree let them eat cake


Well samsung has been selling a lot of Cake

Apple was once way ahead in the burgeoning PC space yet they squandered the lead to a company with an inferior OS (Microsoft.)

I hope Apple's hubris does not cause the same fall here. It's been a long road for Apple to rise from a niche OS maker to the most valued Tech company in the world.

No to LTE Advance and no to liquid metal shell. Apple is still trying to roll out LTE let alone Advance.

Chrome is updated completely seperate from the OS version. Chrome has been update like 3 times in the past two weeks.

Yeah but usually when a OS update comes, Apple does a great job of being right in the pack in browser performance and even edges everyone by a little bit as shown in several browser benchmarks.

I seen Droid DNA browser in action and its fast dont get me wrong, but it still checkerboards when you pinch to zoom in and out. Not on the iPhone

No set of specs would shut up all critics. Why care what they think anyway? Each person needs to use whatever works for that person. No one device will ever be one-size-fits-all.

Couldn't care less about "the crown". It's whether it meets my needs/wants or not that matter to me. The crown is just for fanboys to gloat over.
