    A12 is the supposed most powerful processor in mobile, yet scanning for faces in Photos is still processing.

    25k photos. 13k to go.

    On charger and locked every night for the last week for 6-8 hours. At work for at least 2-4 hours.

    Yet here we are.

    The A12 is the fastest mobile chip not supposedly but is. I think there is also some diminishing returns here as that the 835 and thus the 845 ( I assume since I last had a note 8 with the 835) is no slouch. In real world use between the 835 and A11 I didn’t notice the A11 any tangible difference

    How are you getting the photos on the phone? If you’re syncing with iCloud you’d think Apple could run that recognition on their servers and just send your phone the results

    That's assuming the SoC is simply at full throttle for this one particular task. I doubt they have assigned that priority to this task.

    You'd think. I understand privacy angle, but if the data is randomized and anonymous, you'd think they can do this work on their servers. Then what's the point of using iCloud Servers?

    I transferred all my photos to my phone via laptop. I plan on turning on iCloud Photo Library as a backup, but I want to make sure this thing actually works and I understand what it's doing.

    It should take over a week to scan faces and still not be halfway through. I know it's a background task, but plugged in and locked 8 hours a day for a week should have taken care of this.

    How are you measuring this to say it SHOULD have?
