    If the 6 Plus is using exactly the same A8 and GPU, then it actually going to be slower than the 5S.

    How did they get their paws on the iPhone 6 to test already?

    I'm not surprised. The 5S is actually a terrific phone.

    How did you come to that conclusion?

    If an A7 (not A8) can drive more pixels than the 6+ in an iPad Air without issue, an even more powerful GPU running less pixels isn't going to struggle either.

    It looks like the just shrunk the manufacturing process, added 100Mhz and called it an A8. Correct me if I am wrong but the A7 is listed as a 1.3Ghz Cyclone and the A8 as an 1.4Ghz Cyclone.

    I was on the fence about getting the 6, but after seeing this which is a 100% legit benchmark, i don't think I'll bother now and actually wait for the 6S and enjoy my 5S for another year.

    ----------

    Yeah they still dual, I reckon Apple will change to Quad in the A9

    I wouldn't rely on this data, at best they're liking guesstimating. The damn phone isn't even out yet. Calm down and wait for a legit review.

    I've said it before in another thread, but this new phone is all about the bigger screen. Everything else is even less of an incremental upgrade than usual! If you aren't fussed about the bigger screen then keep the 5S, it looks nicer and has a flush camera.

    The major upgrade on the 6 is the screen, the image quality is mind blowing, and the battery life.

    The processor uses half the power of the old one so when doing heavy tasks you will get more than 25% more battery life. For example on the 5S some of the older navigation apps eat 1% battery every 50 seconds. On the 6, you'd see the phone last almost 80 seconds per 1% battery.

    The 6 is the phone for everyone that complained that they only got 4 hours of heavy use out of their phone, or for everyone that complained that it had a screen that was too small.

    I think the 6 is basically the same as 5S with a bigger screen, the real performance bump will be in 6S

    we already know whats coming in 6S

    S will stand for Speed and Sapphire

    So... The 5s is slow? I mean... Hard to get much faster.

    Not shocked, mobile CPU's are already overpowered for what we need them for. Dual/Quad-core, 64bit, ect.

    May I remind you this is also a gaming benchmark, and that's not the only measurement of a smartphone.

    It's a remodified A5, but it's 1% slower ... no real world differences.

    ----------

    Probably better than the 6 but I wouldn't expect to be blown away. It has to drive way more pixels.

    5S is 20th on the list of phone performance overall. 6 is 17th, thats bad for a new phone not even released yet.

    My concern is this phone will be fine for iOS 8., but if they want to add any new features which require even a hint of better performance, the 6 will suffer for it. I am afraid it might be the iPad 3 of the iPhones which had a worse performance than ipad 2 due to retina

    No the 5S is quick it gave the Snapdragon 800 a run for it money last year, beating it on a few things aswell, with the A8 they haven't really progressed like they did coming from the A6 to the A7, basically it seems they tweaked the A7 just enough for the bigger 4.7" screen and shrunk the die for better battery life.

    Different benchmarks will obviously have different results. Geek Bench showed the 25% increase.

    geekbench actually showed a 15% increase. every previous phone release had at least a 30% increase.

    So....you didn't watch the keynote at all then right?

    New ISP, double the transistors, new GPU, etc.

    That's not "tweaking", thats a whole new chip architecture.

    Maybe benchmarks scores will improve once iOS8 has had a couple of updates.

    I laugh at stuff like this. What a spoiled nation we have become when we bitch about a smartphone that has more computing power than NASA did when they put a man on the moon.

    Well if that being the case then it's a poor show from Apple.

    first benchmark of the iPhone 6 and.....


    The 6 will run iOS 9 without issues. Book it. Stop worrying about the small things. When we get to iOS 11 you might have issues.
