    I have the Samsung 7 series from 2012, which has a core i5 processor, more specifically the i5-3337U. I looked it up, and found out, that its geekbench-score is 2253...

    As far as i can remember the A7 chip has a score of around 2300 or something like that, which would mean, that the iPhone 5s is faster than my Samsung-notebook :eek:

    Am i missing something, or is the A7 chip really THAT incredible?

    IF you are going by the single core tab on your 64 bit 3337 on geekbench then you need to see the single core benchmarks of the A7 not multicore scores:

    Single core A7 scores:
    iPad Air
    Apple A7 1400 MHz (2 cores)

    iPhone 5s
    Apple A7 1300 MHz (2 cores)

    iPad mini (Retina)
    Apple A7 1300 MHz (2 cores)

    Gotta be in it to win it
    The a7 processor may be well designed, but geek bench benchmarks these are synthetic benchmarks, not taking count I/O, virtual memory management, etc.

    Yup the results are in from Geekbench 3

    My iPhone 5s: 1.3 gigahertz duel core A7 (64 bit) CPU

    Single core: 1407

    multi-core: 1551

    Time: 28 seconds

    My laptop: HP pavilion g6. 1.4 gigahertz quad core CPU

    Single core: 785

    Multi-core: 2570

    Time: 4 minutes 30 seconds

    looks like my iPhone destroyed my laptop on single core test. They are only 20 points different on the multi core test (no difference in real world use). Thats why I love Apple :D :apple: :apple: :apple:

    Your math is off or you have a typo.

    OMG I just realized that!! Very sorry about that! But still, the single core test is better on the 5s :) lol


    OH, The 5s multi score is wrong because its 2551 NOT 1551.

    I hate to disturb the geekbench dick measuring contest, but what difference is the CPU speed supposed to make?

    A laptop is not a phone and vice versa.
    They both have their place and yes, smartphones are taking a lot of usefullness away from laptops for daily activities.

    Nevertheless, it is very, very hard to get any real work done on a phone for a variety of reasons.

    Last but not least the HP and Samsung Laptops mentioned here are junk.

    Yeah benchmark performance is doesn't always reflect on real world performance. We're just saying how a 4 inch phone beats an expensive laptop!! We couldn't say the same about 4 years ago :rolleyes:


    SO true :)
