We should actually compare them in a phone not just with the numbers and information. We all know iPhones have great stability and power in gaming. Anyhow for some years later, we couldn't find how really they are different.

Are you sure iphones have better stability? Well, if that's the case, then why iphones heat up so much that they throttle in 10 mins stress test?

Wait a minute.....73 FPS in 3D mark...WITH 95% STABILITY !!! Apple has a long way to catch up android in gaming 🎮🥱 Maybe next year reaches 67 fps??

It's hard to believe that Apple lost to MediaTek in terms of GPU, but at least Apple is still stronger than Samsung Exynos, don't be discouraged.

But still, gaming performance is way better in Bionic, antutu score doesn't matter optimization matter 😆😆

Jonathan Gerner, Apple heats up and lags

Jonathan Gerner, optimization? lol, with the same resolution on games using High/Ultra High, iPhone heats up very very fast which means poor optimization
