Did us iPhone 6 users get the short end of the power stick?

    A4 to A5 - 2X CPU and 9X GPU (yes 9X, that is not a typo)
    A5 to A6 - 2X CPU and 2X GPU
    A6 to A7 - 2X CPU and 2X GPU
    A7 to A8 - 25% CPU and 50% GPU (instead of twice the power like previous chips, we got 25% and 50%)
    A8 to A9 - 70% CPU and 90% GPU

    In almost all chip upgrades, the power was increased by 100% however the A8 only got a 25 to 50% increase. I know you can argue that the A8 got power efficiency, but does that really mean anything? Every iPhone has pretty much the same battery life.

    Well the 5S was ahead of its time in terms of power so that's probably the main reason. Also every iPhone doesn't have the same battery life. I got a good 2+ more hours of usage out of the iPhone 6 than I did the 5S.
