    I would expect everyone on these forum or atleast on these sub-forum to know that, could care less about benchmarks because they mean nothing to me.

    Thats the reason im not typing these from a iphone 5 ! I get no real benefit from it so i opted to jump ship in another plataform.

    You'd be surprised how many Apple fans bring up benchmarks in conversations.

    Edit: I see you mean this forum. I hope everyone here realizes here that, just like the article states, they don't measure real world performance.

    I also saw them bring up drop test videos. The past iPhones were one of the most fragile phones in the market. It's OK to like your phones, but it's hilarious when people bring up random points to justify their purchase.
