Looking at Geekbench’s results browser for Android devices, there are a handful of phones in shouting distance of the iPhone 7 for multi-core performance, but Apple’s A10 Fusion scores double on single-core.
Here are the top 5 Android phones, compared to the iPhone 7:
|iPhone 7/7 Plus||3,450||5,630|
|Samsung Galaxy S7||1,806||5,213|
|Samsung Galaxy Note 7||1,786||5,228|
|Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge||1,744||5,203|

any most MacBook Airs ever made, and performs comparably to a 2013 MacBook Pro.
Update 2: Here’s another eye-opener. Matt Mariska tweets:
