Logic isn't welcome either!Don't bring "facts" into the debate of which phone is better. Shame on you!
The user who did these benchmarks is a really trustworthy reviewer who also wrote a blog about it so I doubt its wrong.Are the labels backwards? 7,2 has a higher clockspeed and higher benchmarks than the 7,1 but 7,2 is labeled the iPhone 6 while 7,1 is labeled the iPhone 6 Plus.
I think you are right about that. Most benchmarks I've seen so far indicate the Plus is slightly faster. Also they have 7,1 clocked higher (1.38 vs. 1.32) and I would think if there is a clock speed difference, the Plus would almost certainly be the one clocked higher.Are the labels backwards? 7,2 has a higher clockspeed and higher benchmarks than the 7,1 but 7,2 is labeled the iPhone 6 while 7,1 is labeled the iPhone 6 Plus.
The person who ran the benchmark made it specifically to show off the performance of each device. He wouldn't run things in the background.It is however entirely possible the regular 6 would bench higher. Apple may well still have a lot of software optimization to do, and they may have optimized for the higher-volume regular 6 more at this early point. You also need to wait to get a consensus, a single sample of each model is not very reliable (one could have been downloading podcasts in the background or something, lots of things could affect the score on a single run).
The resolution does not factor into the Geekbench tests. They are not doing anything screen related, and are just measuring how fast the CPU / GPU perform while performing identical tasks.Make sense to me. Anytime you bench a smaller screen it's going to get higher scores. When I benched a 17 inch MacBook compared to a 15 inch MacBook with the same specs ,the 15 inch came out with better scores. A native lower resolution with the same graphics card and the same CPU is always going to have a better score, then the one with the higher native resolution. You're pushing less with the same specifications.
I agree ... I won't trust any Geekbench results until we see multiple benchmarks with consistent results.Seems a little odd that those benchmarks show the 6 processor as 1.39 GHz and the 6+ as only 1.32 GHz. Maybe backwards?
