The “Bionic” part in the name of Apple’s A11 Bionic chip isn’t
just marketing speak. It’s the most powerful processor ever put in
a mobile phone. We’ve put this chip to the test in both synthetic
benchmarks and some real-world speed trials, and it obliterates
every Android phone we tested. […]
If you’re wondering how all this translates to real-world
performance, we have more good news for iPhone 8 shoppers — and
bad news for everyone else. To really put the A11 Bionic chip
through its paces, we put the same 2-minute video, shot in 4K by a
drone, on the iPhone 8, Galaxy Note 8 and Galaxy S8+, and then
added the same transitions and effects before exporting and saving
The iPhone 8 finished this strenuous task in just 42 seconds,
while the Note 8 took more than 3 minutes. The Galaxy S8+ took
more than 4 minutes.
More than 4 times as fast in a legitimate real-world CPU-intensive task. Android is literally years behind.
