Given that the DROID line are the hottest selling phones next to the iPhone, I'd say pretty good. Time can only tell.

Laggy? Have you even seen the multitasking features of the Note 3.?
Lets see the iPhone do that at all, let alone doing it without lag.

I'm not going to spend time looking for an article. Please tell me, what is the benefit of having a 64-bit processor on an iPhone 5S?

26. power_x (Posts: 264; Member since: 28 Aug 2013)


does any android phone has a 64-bit processor ?
no , that makes the 5S ahead of its time
it is a simple equation

It's USELESS to put a 64-bit processor on a iPhone. Please do some research and get informed.

Unfortunately, for you at least, you are the one who needs informed, as do most of the trolls on here, including the PA "writer" who sent out the trolling article the other day. Addressable RAM is far from the only advantage for 64-bit processing.

64-bit is useful in mobile for future proofing. Minor, but not insignificant.

64-bit has more usable registers, and wider 64-bit data paths, meaning that heavy calculations are done much more easily. Audio/video encoding and decoding and encryption all run faster with less overhead. Not only that, it isn't just about how much physical memory the CPU addresses, but it also addresses more virtual memory. The A7 will also have double the 128-bit registers of anything else on the market. These things all speed up every day processes. Sounds useless, doesn't it?

64-bit OSes are usually more secure, and can utilize much more complex security and encryption protocols. ARMv8 is no exception, and it provides better native encrypt and decrypt than ARMv7.

yeah, 64-bit is useless unless we have 4 GB RAM. Even many apps in PC are still 32-bit.
