Watch all 8 Apple iPhone models battle each other in a test of speed

Watch all 8 Apple iPhone models battle each other in a test of speed
Take all 8 released versions of the Apple iPhone, a large number of hands, and you have a test to determine how fast each generation's processing capability is compared with other models. The Apple iPhone 3GS was actually the first to shut down and you might notice that the iOS 7 models all shut down at the exact same time. Interesting.

After all 8 models, which are labeled for quick identification, are rebooted, the test begins and the Apple iPhone 5s and Apple iPhone 5 are neck and neck with the Apple iPhone 5c just a little behind. For those who didn't upgrade to the new model, this little demonstration shows that the iPhone 5 is still quite a relevant machine.

The test also shows how far we've come since 2007, especially when you see the difference in loading time between the newer models and the original Apple iPhone.

Is that the iPhone 5S or the 5C? Never mind it's the 5.

This battle only proves that it doesn't worth to upgrade from iPhone 5 to iPhone 5S.

Talking about iOS 7, there is another example that iOS 7 was rushed:

"Apple iOS7 is a Mess"

"iOS is a Mess" from an Android supremacy site. Sorry your source lacks credibility and has an obvious agenda which is to put down any Android competitor out. Nice try.

Its coming from a site that publishes articles about Andoird doesnt mean it lacks credibility & it would only say bad about other OS. You are saying like the criminal need not be punished. But the person who reported the crime should be punished.
The article shows the flaws in ios7. The only thing to be done is improve on all the reported bugs.
Nobody has an agenda to put down ios or WP or firefox os or Ubuntu.

All depends on the application/user for those brands.

AMD is worse than intel right now in most cases, AMD wins prices wise.

Xbox One vs PS4, I would prefer a PC but if I must choose PS4 is the better of the two by far, better exclusives better overall specs.

Car is user preference and pricing, no car brand can be considered the best.

Graphics is price range reliant for which is better. If you had $200-$400 until the R7 series comes out your best bang for buck is a GTX 760/770. If your looking for a high end the best is the new R9-290x, for $600 it beats the titan in most situations.

Why not both colors.

I buy off which has the best bang/buck perfomance, I'm sorry but its pretty pathetic I can get a Nexus 4 for $250 that can do thousands of things an iphone can't, Nexus 5 will be $350 and beat the iphone in graphics benchmarks.

I don't think he meant "Watch" to mean the Galaxy Gear. He just capitalized "watch" in its form as an imperative for some reason.

Oh and i love the fact that they kept the screen size almost constant throught the series, after all this is a phone, i still haven't gotten used to my xperia z.

24. Taters (Posts: 2661; Member since: 28 Jan 2013)


You picked the wrong phone. The Xperia Z is the equivalent of a 5.3 inch phone. That is how big it is and why Nokia, HTC, and Sony suck.

You want a true indicator of how big a 5 inch screen phone is check out the GS4. If you want to see how compact 4.7 inch phone can get check out the Moto X. The moto X is pretty darn close to the same size of the iphone 5s with a much bigger screen.

They all perform similar because a hamster running on a wheel can run a joke operating system like IOS.

The 5S stutters like a schitzo for some reason btw. The icon fly in jitter and shake and twinkle like crazy. It is very ugly and makes it seem like a Motorola Atrix or HTC Sensation with sense 4 or something.

I don't think that it is part of the parallax effect either because it still does it with reduced motion turned on.

You probably wouldn't notice it unless you compared it to an Iphone 5 or 5C but it's there.

Anyways, you are an HTC shill so you wouldn't know any better anyways. You will say it is not there even if it is, just like you say HTC doesn't have a lemon in every box even though they do. I don't lie and if I say something it is true.

I am not sure why I still bother with you though because you are obviously clueless about just about everything.
