Samsung's new Galaxy S22 models are some of the fastest Android smartphones ever, but Apple still has the world's fastest mobile processor by a considerable margin.

In a Geekbench 5 benchmark test conducted by PCMag, the Galaxy S22 Ultra with Qualcomm's Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 processor achieved a multi-core score of 3,433, compared to 4,647 for the iPhone 13 Pro Max with Apple's A15 Bionic chip. Based on these results, the iPhone 13 Pro Max is around 35% faster than the Galaxy S22 Ultra for CPU performance.

In the United States, all Galaxy S22 models are equipped with the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1, but models sold in Europe use Samsung's Exynos 2200 chip. Geekbench 5 results for the Exynos 2200 models still have multi-core scores in the mid-3,000s, however, so iPhone 13 models maintain a considerable lead in performance.

PCMag also ran Geekbench ML for machine learning performance and the iPhone 13 Pro Max achieved a score of 948, over double that of the Galaxy S22 Ultra, which came in at 448. Apple's A15 chip features a new 16-core Neural Engine capable of 15.8 trillion operations per second for machine learning tasks such as on-device Siri processing.

Apple will look to extend its lead in performance later this year with an even faster A16 chip for the iPhone 14 series.

Great that my iPhone is faster than any Android.

But people do not buy non-iPhones on raw performance and performance per watt alone.

They do so for other reasons like total cost of ownership especially in the sub-$399 market segment.

Be proud that people with the means can afford iPhones and any Apple devices as these industry leading in terms of over all user & ownership experience.

Those smartphones are superior to my 2012 iMac 27" Core i7 22nm that will be replaced by a 2022 iMac Pro 27" M1 Pro 5nm before Valentines Day 2023

In before "it's not all about specs" posters chiming in. When Android were more powerful years ago and with better hardware, no one ever heard the end of it.

Now it's not about specs. LMAO. Give me a break.
I’m not going to lie. I think Samsung also did a great job with the hardware design and the color. The phone itself looks futuristic. Have to give the credit where it’s due. Much respect to Samsung. Competition is a good thing and it will only push Apple to do bigger and better things. ??

We don't need benchmarks to know that ;-) and even it it was the other way around, the fact iOS is snappy, clean and unified will always be more important than theoretical figures to my eyes. Samsung will always lose because of Android.

I'm not going to lie either. Those five cameras look like ****.

The regular S22 design is a lot cleaner, though. And the sage green is pretty.

In my opinion all apple products are better than the competition.

smartphones have been more or less the same over the last 6-7 or so years. apps on smartphones work pretty instantly and benchmarks that stress the phones out does not represent any performance benefit that consumers can feel. even if the iphone was 100x faster than the samsung phone, would you even feel that 100x?
