Here’s comes the note! Then after bringing it to the world in a few weeks it will be buried by greatest iphone ever made. Then most fandroids will buy s7 edge instead coz they cant afford note while iphone is selling 1k$ and and people were ranting coz they can get their iphone early January due to high demand.

Yeah the A11 is gonna blow this thing away and offer very noticeable performance improvements over the Note 8. The king deserves something better than a S835

No need for me to get into the fanboy bickering above, the A11 is going to be much faster than just a few seconds in apps/etc, workflow will be noticeably faster, websites will load noticeably quicker, you will just have more power at your finger tips

The difference will be like a i5 vs a i7 , pretty big when applications take advantage of it, etc

The A10 already performs ridiculously well in real world

The S7 in real world feels just like a iPhone 6 nowadays , which is not that fast anymore and can't always exactly keep up on everything. S8 feels marginally better

But like I said a few times already, SoC isn't every single thing in a phone so

Still, there is an 8-9% difference, it is not quite negligible.

Because it's the popular "cool thing" to do. A lot of people are followers and not leaders and many want to fit in. This is one big way they attempt that

I don't. I like them quite a bit, but as a long time user if them, I'm not satisfied with the way they've grown. I'm simply not afraid of the backlash, and hate I get for saying it.

Its not the phone. For years Apple stifled innovation of competitors by taking advantage of the broken patent system. That's lessened quite a bit under Tim Cook. It's the militant fans that people don't like, the ones who want to pretend it's still 2008, and the iPhone is still the top of the pile, and everything else is buggy, laggy and poorly built copies of it.

Android phone benchmarks:

Mediocre score - People go "meh"
High score - People go "OMFG let's see if they're cheating!"

Back in, like, 2009 and 2010, Android fanatics with flagships always bristled proudly with how well their phones did on benchmarks. Now, in 2017, Android fanatics are fighting a war of words to disavow benchmarks in order to deny iPhone fans bragging rights. I remember how I used to think that some iPhone fans were so ridiculous, and now I have to say that some Android fans, especially some Samsung fans, are just as ridiculous, if not worse. Apple caught up in the benchmarks game, after all they could buy their way to better specs as they made so much profit margin on their devices... Android fans need to take it like an adult, and not play the hypocrisy games. Yes, Apple is beating the benchmarks senseless, but maybe you should be demanding better from your OEM's than what they are providing right now. If we keep downplaying Apple's takeover of one sector at a time, they will eventually own the specs game as well, and the features game after that, and then there will be no denying that Apple is a real powerhouse. I've been saying it for years: watch the flow of money!

Believe me fans on the both side are hypocrite. And will always be.

What PA really needs to do is benchmark these phones after they've had real-world usage after 6 months and after a year to let all the readers know the real performance degradation Samsung phones have with all their bloatware, redundant apps, and useless processes running in the background. They should also note whether they've had any O/S and security updates in that amount of time as well.
