4% more increase in multi-core score? Are you kidding me? Lol snapdragon 8 gen 1 can't even beat a14 bionic I have the Asus rog phone 5 with snapdragon 888 it's heating up too fast and its performance in gaming is not like they saying always apple is 2 years ahead of the rest 🤭

The snapdragon 888 beats a bionic 14 but it mostly depends on ur phone as well and the snapdragon 8 gen 1 with a good phone that doesn't heat up can beat bionic 15 easily.

Yah, 888 doesn’t beat a15. Where are you getting that information from? You look at any benchmark test and a15 will beat 888.

You got it backward. Apple is always 2 years late in technology. If you follow Apple for the last decade you would know this.

Can you chill out I know that Apple is very good with processing and I know it's a bit faster but you're just hating on Android for no reason and you making android look bad but Android has quite good processing.

Mido, What's the logic of having a fast CPU when the only thing most apple users do is stream and watch videos lmao.

The thing is Bionic chips are developed by Apple themselves, and they also have their exclusive OS to pair with their processor. Simply put, it will be much easier for them to fine-tune and optimize their hardware as needed, hence the higher performance level. That's also why iPhones don't need a large memory capacity to run smoothly. Credit to Apple though. Android on the other hand is more of an "open-source" material. Different OS, different chip manufacturers, different ideas, etc. At least that's how I perceive it to be.
