Apple iPhone 5s is the fastest smartphone according to benchmark tests
posted by Alan F. / Oct 19, 2013, 4:52 PM
In multi-core testing, the Apple iPhone 5s still wound up on top, but the LG G2 finished a much closer second. While the Apple iPhone 5s uses a dual-core processor versus the quad-core silicon found on many of the other models, the number of cores doesn't necessarily correspond with the speed of the phone. The results mean that when you swipe through menus and open apps, the iPhone 5s feels snappier than its Android competition.

Well it's not surprising news as the 5S is super fast, but where's the note 3? That's an awfully fast piece of tech too. Anyways good job apple, work out the kinks and the 5S is pretty much perfect

Note 3 conveniently left out.

FASTEST processor of 2013 inside the SMALLEST flagship of this year!!! What would be the benefit of this superprocessor when the display resolution and size is not suitable for game, surfing... I prefer Note 3!

Its like a fastest processor on a windows 98 and on a smallest crt monitor.. 5s needs that 4inch display and and not even a fhd resolution for their 720p(downscaled to 480p) slowmo videos so the people wont notice it..liars

Android smartphones are big not because they wanted to give us big screens!!! They just couldn't fit a nice processor, an elephant size battery and so on to be able to run android. iPhones are amazing because the are more powerful than any other smartphones but have the size of 1/3 of S4 or G2. Imagine a 5 inch iPhone!!! It will be a beast and we will be playing full games but android will barely run his native mobile games. :)

Actually, there are quite a few models who have great specs and battery in a device with smaller screen. So you're arguments make no sense at all. And why would a 5 inch iPhone be a beast? Suddenly their processor needs to handle a bigger screen and more pixels.

But you still have to take something in account here, the cyclone cores are much bigger in die size than normal cores, the A7's dual core occupies the same die space roughly as the quad A15s in the Exynos 5410. http://chip-architect.com/news/Apple_A7_Sa

Doesn't matter, Note 3 would either match or marginally beat the iPhone, which wouldn't matter in the end because it really doesn't. The fact that the article states that anything feels snappier than the other in the top 10 is retarded because opening apps will be limited by the SSD with the kind of processing power that is available. The only place it matters is in high end gaming and they all about equal out in that regard. I don't know why they even measure CPU performance anyway as a means of overall device performance.
