The dual-core iPhone 6s dusts Android’s octa-core champion

Posted by

We all know that Android OS is a resource hog – requiring more cores and higher clocked processors, as well as more RAM to deliver anything close to a smooth operation. It is the bane of the Android ecosystem. While the Android ecosystem is awash with constant processor upgrades and now features octa-core processors in the most powerful devices, the iPhone has retained dual-core processors since the iPhone 4s. Think about that.

iPhone 6s

And now, Apple’s latest shining toy, the iPhone 6s (running a dual-core processor), has been shown to dust Android’s octa-core champion, the Samsung Galaxy S6.

There are a handful of individuals who have run comparison benchmark tests, but we point you to the iPhone 6s and S6 Plus review which states the following:

Most impressive is that the dual-core A9 bests the octa-core Exynos 7420 inside Samsung’s latest devices, arguably the fastest chips currently available in the Android ecosystem, in multi-core performance.

Like we say, it isn’t about the number of cores, but about what the OS is able to do with it. iOS has consistently upstaged Android at this. Even Windows Phone with a tiny market share continues to upstage Android OS in terms of resource efficiency.

  2. Samsung should just go back to the drawing board with these their processor wars with other joes In the market.

    It’s becoming embarrassing…with all their benchmark and record breaking specs, iphone will just come out, edge them at two or three areas and proceed to take all the shine.

    Maybe its even safe to assume samsung devices cant stand apple’s devices anyway.

  3. Being that the iPhone 6s Chipset only have to power a measly 720p resolution compared to the 2K resolution on the Galaxy S6,which is 4X the resolution on the iPhone it doesn’t take a Rocket Scientist to appreciate the huge impact on the processing power of the Exynos Chipset..

    Pound for Pound,Samsung’s Exynos 7420 is the Top Dog around bare non,,it just has much more to deal with than the Apple’s A9 Chipset ever had to..

  5. you’re missing the point of single and multi core performance analysis, it has nothing to do with screen resolution

  6. The Daewoo Tico of the early 90s with three cylinders and 1-litre engine is far more fuel efficient than a Camry with 2.4 litre V6 engine, and accelerates faster.

    So?

    I thino It’s pointless making these.comparisons, unless of course to stir up an entertaining roforofo mobile OS fight.

  8. In REAL life smartphone situations everything has to do with the screen resolution,but that’s not just the point I was trying to make,yes the A9 works more efficiently on iOS than most other Android Chipsets,but this got much more to do with iOS as an OS than any Superior processing of their SoC..
    Put it in a Galaxy Note 5 and it will struggle BIG time..

  9. let’s not forget apple makes d os n d phone n puts d together in perfect matrimony/harmony.. Google makes it n others fix it in their mobiles anyhow they see fit, that’s why even with same chip n everything, phones with same specs perform differently thanks to ui iterations n the rest e.g heaviness of touch wiz leading to all d complaints of s this, s that. even in same phone, there are differences in performance n battery back up in different roms. so free droid abeg

  10. I know…in this case, its samsung. Not android. Its their phone being compared. Which other android phone hits the benchmark samsung sets, to begin with?

  11. …actually, your point is understood but while the daewoo would be more fuel efficient, the camry would accelerate faster.

  12. Like seriously???

    As much as I dislike android and probably can’t use samsung… I know the best of androids come from samsung. From processor, to build, to sync of os and device, to theme. Just because many of them make use of 3g RAMs now doesn’t mean they are in the same class with Samsung.

    As poster said, samsung still has the champion android device. And that is the basis for comparison.

  13. Abeg who send droid message???

    Perhaps samsung too should make their OS now and stop relying on heavy RAMs and processors for smooth running of their devices.
