    Wow!

    I'm still using an iPhone 6, since it works fine for me. I know that the 6S is fast, but didn't know it was THAT was. Apparently zoneoftech did an extremely in-depth performance test of the A9 chip. Seems to be faster than the core M, i5 and i7! JEZUS

    He compared the RAM, the processsors, the GPUs, 4K editing and some browser benchmarks i think.

    Also, 2GB ram seems to be better than 4GB in some android phones. What do you guys think?

    I've included the video link:

    It really is amazing how much faster mobile technology is advancing compared to desktop technology. Research follows the money. There's no way the A9 is more capable than current Intel processors, but laptop CPUs from a few years ago probably.

    Would not take much to be faster than the new Macbooks, but I agree our phone are quite powerful.

    More than fast enough for me.

    Look at the geekbench scores for the new Macbook. I think it was 2600 single core vs 2000 single core for the iPhone. Just a matter of a few years.

    The processor does not have enough cache nor does it have the ram those tests are not accurate. for example the phone would not play wow or any other game for that manner as good as it my 2008 MacBook granted my 2008 has 8gb of ram.

    OnePlus 2 seems to have very slow flash memory. iOS has always been excellent at RAM management.

    True, it's too powerful for most of us. Most use it just for facebook and browsing and don't even know that they have a full computer in their pocket

    I take it you haven't owned an iPhone 6 or especially 6+ then...

    Very true. The limited ram of the plus was the main reason I impulsively upgraded

    No, I haven't. Are they bad? All my previous iOS devices (iPads, iPod Touches, iPhones) were quite snappy for the given amount of RAM compared to similar devices.

    Really anything bigger than 1gb is usable for now

    My iPad Air 2 was already faster than old Macbook Airs.

    This video does a good job of the RAM disparity between the 6 and 6s

    This is the exact difference I noted with the 6 to 6s.

    Feels like a different device when multitasking, regardless of them looking the same

    As a computer scientist these threads always make me laugh.

    Never change, MacRumors
