    Has anyone run Geekbench on low power mode to see how the lower cores score on the A10

    Can you post your results?

    How did you do that? Test in low power Mode i mean?

    Turn on low power mode and run the benchmark...:rolleyes:

    Settings>Battery>Low Power Mode

    Those are impressive numbers. The iPhone 7 in low power mode is still more powerful than my iPhone 6. My 6 gets 1535 and 2616.

    When you put your iPhone 7 in low power mode, does it do the same thing on all the other iPhones where it just throttles the CPU or does it just switch to using the two less powerful cores in the A10?

    It appears to switch to using only the two low power cores.

    To be honest, I forget where I heard it. It certainly seems plausible though.

    Oh, I thought you had a way to test that.

    That's interesting though.

    Ah, no. Sorry about that I should've been more clear about that. I'll see if I can find where I read that though.

    In 6s and before, when you turn on low power mode the processor speed slows down. Since the A10 has two low power cores, when you enable low power mode I assume that it will use only those slow cores and turn off the other two.

    I doubt it shuts off the bigger cores. It's probably throttling the speed.
