    I'm intensely curious when it comes to real world speeds of the new A6 compared to the now older 4S. Are there any videos or something of the sort out there that show them off?

    Some benchmarks are noting over 2x improvement. Actually what apple said in keynote. How this translates in real life application I guess everything feels a little more exciting and longer lasting (eg you can take photos faster and sustain the "burst" longer)

    Sounds like we're talking about the new Trojan condom or something lol


    Very nice. My S3 just ranked in third based on the results I just got...making it better than the International Version. Probably because I'm on Jelly Bean.

    it's about 2.5X faster than the 4S based on available benchmarks.

    I hate ot reak it to the folks posting here, but real world speeds does not mean benchmarks. Real world speeds means comparing things, such as safari, and various other apps loading content. While a benchmark might show 2.5x performance you can bet the afformentioned apps won't be performing 2.5x faster...

    In the Engadget video there seemed to be a pretty noticeable difference when opening some of the Apps, they loaded a lot quicker. But I agree comparing benchmarks are overrated.

    Apple's estimates in terms of speed/battery life are always quite accurate.

    Can't wait to see 4S vs 5 vids. I think the 4S will put up a fight but we all know the 5 is faster.

    Stock browswer on android is crap. Try running it with chrome.

    Nope, Chrome scored ~500ms worse.
