iPhone 6 benchmarks show little improvement over iPhone 5s
We’re quite sure some of you have already gotten your iPhone 6 or iPhone 6 Plus and we’ve heard that Apple has included something a little extra to make your new experience with the iPhone 6 all that more special. Apple store employees are being trained on the brand new apps that will be features on every iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus. With the 64 GB and 128 GB variants of both models, you get extra apps like Keynote, Pages, iTunes U and iMovie pre-installed for you.
On top of that, for those of you who have not gotten the new phone and want to know more, we’ve got some news about the GPU benchmarks of the new A8 chip featured in the new iPhone 6 models. The results were 21 204 point in graphic performance compared to 20 254 point on the iPhone 5s. However, the new A8 chip and the new 20-nanometer design has yet to show the 25% bump in processing speed compared to the A7 as well as the 50% bump in the graphics performance. Let us know in the comment section below if the iPhone 6 models does in fact do what Apple promises it would!
In addition, some claims have emerged since the shipping of the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus – it runs on the same amount of RAM that the iPhone 5s did a year ago! It seems 1 GB of RAM is all both flagship headsets require to run smoothly. We’re not quite sure if these claims are true since Apple doesn’t provide a full on spec sheet like Android does but it’s something to keep in mind if you were looking to spend that much amount of money of the device.
Courtesy of AnandTech, test results show that the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus are the top of the charts in CPU benchmarks and battery life but the iPhone 6 Plus lags in graphic performance due to the larger screen size.
When AnandTech looked at battery life, it noted that Apple has actually improved which is quite surprising seeing that the battery is only 1810 mAh. It still manages to beat out its predecessor and most Android phones.
So, there are some pros and cons to buying these new additions to the iPhone family. Some claims can’t be verified. After reading these new updates, would you still buy the iPhone 6 or the iPhone 6 Plus?
