    If the iPhone 6 has an A9 faster processor than why can't I tell the difference from the older phones?

    A9 ain't coming out 'til next year. Aren't you jumping the gun on your complaining?

    The iPhone 6 has the Apple A8 processor clocked at Dual Core 1.4Ghz. The iPhone 5S was clocked at 1.3 and iPhone 5 was clocked at 1.0Ghz.

    It has an A8. And you can't tell the difference because phones have been fast enough for some time now that typical uses like texting, casual web browsing, social media, etc. have pretty much reached the point of diminishing returns.

    Play a game like Asphalt 8/Vainglory on your 6/6 Plus, the graphics and details are superb for a mobile device

    This guy is a joke, always posts garbage threads with just flat out ridiculous information.

    I think you accidently mixed up next years complaints with this years. Just bring back the black iPhone stuff and you will be fine.

    Yup. There's people waiting for him to respond to Apple making the T-Mobile iPhone the official unlocked model instead of him complaining that for whatever reason a full price Verizon/att/T-Mobile iPhone at the Apple Store isn't as unlocked as the "official Apple unlocked". He said it has to show on the receipt lol.

    The benchmarks on the A8 show about a 20% increase in processing performance. However, the real improvement this time around is the 50% reduction in energy consumption, which allowed Apple to double the processed graphics resolution and go with a larger screen size, while increasing the battery life without a huge increase in the weight or thickness.

    Apple seems to have settled into an alternation in which they make the radical microarchitectural changes one year, and do a die-shrink and/or optimizations the next year (similar to how Intel alternates). The 5s roughly doubled the performance of the 5, and that's because the A7 featured major changes to the processor design.

    Make sure you enabled the "turbo" mode in the secondary iOS speed settings.
