You may think your Android phone is second to none when it comes to raw power and performance-per-core, but you’d be wrong. It turns out the iPhone 6s is the most powerful smartphone today — and by a wide margin.
A report published by AnTuTu, of all sources, indicated that Apple’s 2015 flagship crushed the competition, topping the AnTuTu Benchmark 6.0 scores posted by the Samsung Galaxy Note 5, Nexus 6P, Huawei Mate 8, Xiaomi Mi Note Pro, and OnePlus 2.
The iPhone 6s proved to be 59 and 69 percent faster than the Galaxy Note 5 and Nexus 6P, respectively.
In case you haven’t heard yet, the latest release of AnTuTu Benchmark now supports both Android and iOS, allowing users to make a cross-platform comparison between devices, such as the one you see here.
The iPhone 6s proved to be 41 percent faster than the second-best mark posted by the Huawei Mate 8. It also scored 59 and 69 percent higher than the Galaxy Note 5 and Nexus 6P, respectively. All three Android phones pack octa-core processors and at least 3GB of RAM. By contrast, the iPhone 6s is powered by a dual-core chipset accompanied by a modest 2GB of memory.
The lesson here is that having more CPU cores and RAM doesn’t necessarily translate into better performance.
So I guess the lesson here is that having more CPU cores and RAM doesn’t necessarily translate into better synthetic performance. Despite the push for multicore architecture and absurd quantities of RAM in the mobile world, it ultimately comes down to how much power the processor is capable of and how efficient the operating system is with RAM.
