Anandtech should publish disclaimer of their preliminary test!

    What the title says!

    I've had the regular 6 since last Friday and got my Plus today. I ran GFXBench on both. The Plus beats the regular 6 in every single test! Their results were so off and misleading!

    They're so similar that I don't think it matters much.

    Did you see what they publish in their tests? I don't think so....
    On their Manhattan test (on-screen) they showed as twice as less what the 6 Plus is really capable of.

    Same as my experience ... My 6+ test results were 2X faster than ananad's

    So! Their Manhattan onscreen test for the Plus is totally off!

    I do. I was hoping for a competent source of quality information. This forum certainly ain't it. Anandtech has a good reputation. It's not like them to be sloppy. For that I can come here and read some posts.

    Kind of narcissistic to come here and peruse your own post history.

    those numbers mean nothing for real world usage, who is really basing a purchase off bench numbers. This isnt a gaming PC, its a phone. Good lord.

    You don't get it, do you? It's a review. I read the whole thing, not just the numbers. But if they were sloppy with the numbers, what other part of the review did they half-ass?

    It's called credibility. In this case, lack thereof.

    is your resolution on the 6+ set properly? I don't have a 6plus but i heard somewhere that the native resolution needs to be set properly on the 6plus

    That doesn't sound right. Apple doesn't normally let you mess with resolution on iPhones.

    It doesn't let you change it

    ----------

    What about the offscreen 1080p test? The Plus still shows better results....
