Apple iPhone 5s performance review: CPU and GPU speed compared to top Android phones (benchmarks)

The Apple iPhone 5s brings is one of the biggest under-the-hood upgrades to ever happen to the iPhone line. Apple’s A7 chip comes with a new Cyclone core that is very well optimized in terms of power consumption and still manages to deliver great performance…

Don’t compare Android to Apple because Apple does not have 1080p display, it has 640 x 1136 display only. Compare to Android 1080p display. Not match

I have a small question to all who says these result are solely due to the fact that apple optimized its OS. Now I'm just a Mechanical Engineer and don't know the details of computer technology as many of you guys on this site who clearly work with computers for a living or just are more knowledgeable. So here is the question, ''knowing that iOS is derived from Mac OS, so why all the mac computers (mb pro, iMac, Mac Pro) can never compete against the high end PC's which are way more powerful because they sport superior hardwear. So in other words why doesn't apple optimize the Mac Os for their computers as well so they could beat all the top of the line PC's which are 2,4,6 times better featuring CPU's, GPU's and RAM's. So why only iPhone achieve these results''.

Good question! The difference is the OS. The Unix file system Apple uses isn't designed for performance. The NFL file system allows for speed and performance. DIRECT x was designed again for performance while Open GL wasnt. Even on the same x86 hardware, macs don't perform the same as a Windows box with the same exact components.

Apple tries to hard to be different. Facts show, soldering components to a board offers no performance yields over using sockets. In fact soldering usually leads to part failure do to Apples poor ventilation.

Even though Microsoft did make a Unix OS once, Gates felt he could do better and he did. The NT file system uses DLL's as shortcuts to load apps faster, run them faster and when does they close out faster.

NT prevents s the pod stuff like being able to wipe a hard disk with the system files while the OS is running. With Unix, a simple SUDO command can wipe the disk even while the OS is running. Yet Apple claims OS X is the most superior OS.

iOS and WP seem to be equally optimized, while android seems to be like a pair of heavy boots on a runner. It's getting better but not good enough yet. And a ROM won't fix this. It's a more fundamental issue that has to do with processing overhead involved with Android and its java virtual machine. Fact is Java is is less efficient than the straight up C/C++/C# used in iOS/Windows platforms. The main advantage of Java, platform independence, is kind of pointless if only one OS runs the JVM. Keep in mind that google bought the Android project back then, so that is what they got. Note that it is possible to write C/C++ code that runs on Android via the NDK but that is not the norm.

Android is optimized like Windows to run of different hardware combination. It's benefit is flexibility. Like Windows it has some issues for such a set up. Sure and OS made by the device to run on specific hardware will have many pluses. However the results end up being limitations that make using the OS boring. I OS and WE are both boring to a point that every device is essentially a clone of the other. No individually, no real capability or usability.
