    iPhone 5s
    single core: 1409
    multi core: 2549


    iPhone 6
    single core:1517
    multi core:2586


    iPhone 6+
    single core:1610
    multi core:2877

    To tell ya the truth, the iP6 is just a 5s with a bigger screen! You CANNOT tell me that just 400 points (at the most) more means much in real world use!! What do you guys think?

    Prepare for the people who ordered one to tear you apart for even suggesting the iPhone 6 isn't the most awesome amazing supreme phone ever.

    DAMN IT...

    I guess I should just stay with my iPhone 4.

    But seriously. I don't give a **** especially about benchmarks.

    From TechRadar:

    The iPhone 6 seemed to be the slicker of the two new iHandsets when it comes to chugging away under the finger, although when looking at the Geekbench 3 scores, we can see it's almost identical to the iPhone 6 Plus (average score of 2905 vs 2911 for the 6 Plus)

    To tell you the truth, the iPhone 6+ is just a fatter heavier iPhone 6, i say sarcastically.

    They are both good phones. Live with what you bought and let others be happy with what they bought.

    Haha I'm ready!! Lol Jk!

    ----------

    I respect the people that bought the iP6 and 6+, but I them so!! I KNEW the iP6 wouldn't be that much faster! I got attacked for saying that it wasn't going to be a big upgrade with the CPU!!!!! To all the people that got mad at me, :p :p :p

    Not sure what u do on ur iPhone but I do tons of photography and some gaming and I never ever experienced a slow down. Faster specs don't mean much when you're not even able to notice a slow down currently.

    On a different note looking forward to AC Wifi to go with my Asus AC RT-87U router :)

    So annoying seeing benchmarks being posted left and right. The average person even advanced users like me can give two craps about benchmarks.

    Thats my point. A few hundred points on a synthetic benchmark means close to NOTHING in the real world.

    ----------

    Guys, lets look at it this way, the 5s was 2X faster than the iP5! The 6 doesn't come close to that! The 5 to 5s was a better upgrade!

    It's the tick tock model employed by many industries. The full integers get new hardware design paradigms while the S generation upgrades get beefed up internals for the same hardware design. It has been so for a while now. Why is this even "news"?

    When the 5S came out it was the new super super fast phone and still beats lots of other phones in benchmarks, so really is the 6 not being that much faster a bad thing?

    This is no surprise. The A8 is a tweaked A7. The 'S' models always get the big CPU upgrade. The iPhone 5 A6 is the exception…

    Other tester got a different score. iPhone 6 : Single-Core 1627, Multi-Core 2920. I guess geekbench doesn't support iPhone 6 well.

    Geekbench Score iPhone 6

    The chips are the same, guys. There's always slight discrepancies with Geekbench scores. Other results show iPhone 6 ahead. And they only promised UP TO 25% boost in CPU, which is about right with these scores.

    I believe the 7,2 model is the 6+

    I agree. However, it is much faster than my current phone - iPhone 5.

    So, really, in getting a new phone from an iPhone 5... I'll chose the 6 over the 5s. If I had a 5s, probably wouldn't really need to do an upgrade... but since I'm upgrading, why settle for a 5s?

    Most people are in this boat, I know some people, especially on this forum get every new phone, but most consumers do not. 2 year contracts, so most people are going from 5 to 6.

    So, while you have a point, it is irrelevant to most users going from 5 to 6...

    I may be wrong but I don't think Apple was going for a speedier chip this go around, I think they just wanted to switch to the 20 nm process. Which in turn saved battery life and didn't really improve performance. *shrugs* I may be wrong though

    And the 5s didn't do so great on some graphics tests when it came out as per Anandtech's review.

    I'd prefer improvements in the OS, and apps, over a benchmark per se. We'll see - anandtech's review last year was out before launch day, so we'll have some finer information and decent benchmarking on all fronts in a day or so.

    I see what you're saying, but if the 5S isn't slow, that only implies that the 6 is not slow, correct?

    If you want a big boost you'll have to wait for the 6S. This release was all about the bigger screens and ApplePay.

    iPhone 7,2 = "6", iPhone 7,1 = "6+". :D

    But if you wait a little longer, you can get the 7. It will be faster than the 6S.

    Benchmarks don't mean anything. When it comes out go to the store and try it out.

    Only fools settle for S updates.
