Screen size doesn't affect performance at all, screen resolution does but only in on screen benchmarks, off screen benchmarks are not affected by screen resolution

Do you know what "offscreen" means?

I was only able to get the least loved 64GB silver one. Everything else was sold out.

I'll accept that statement once I see it in a Samsung phone or with a Samsung logo inside an iPhone.

Sony Xperia Z1 results are very good.

Apple did a great job with the 5S but let's not forget that other flagship like xperia Z1 and lg G2 are very good too though they have bigger screen with more pixel to push! So the snapdragon 800 with 330 adreno is almost the same as this.

Good but not as good as the A7. We are talking about a dual core, 1.3 ghz vs a quad core clocked 2.3 ghz. The S800, s600 should blow the DUAL CORE A7 out the water.

And they would if they came with Safari and IOS stock and they had the same legion of Apple lovers in the media spinning benchmarks in their favor.

Any processor intensive or more rounded/complete benchmarks?

There are no cross-platform CPU intensive tests that I know of, but suggestions are always welcome.

I praise Apple for their great efforts to a very smooth, capable, and fast OS but there are still many drawbacks like why can't they put a simple BT to BT transfer to other devices, yes, there is AirDrop now but it is limited to iDevices only.

Because it was an terrible idea to begin with. BT 3.0 High Speed and newer uses, ***drum roll***, an 802.11 Wifi link to perform actual data transfer. Would you paint a wall with a crayon? Technically, you could, but it's not a good idea.

What so amazing about apple benchmark score?? Don't anyone of you realize that apple has 2x lower screen resolution compared to other android flagship? Im not impressed by apple benchmark. If it's 1080p then it's mindblowing

Hey smart guy. Did you know that all offscreen tests are done in 1080p? It doesn't matter if the phone is 640/720/1080p, it'll run the test at 1080p.
