Since the IP4(as far as i can remember back in this topic) Apple has always been faster than everyone else in certain benchmarks for a while after launch. People talk about the pursuit of performance, though this sound to me more like the pursuit of benchmarkresults and optimization(later is ofc a good thing), but Android simply cant afford this level of optimization regarding the vast differences between the hardware used in Android Phones today.
As an android lover (compaired to what else is out there), i stand unimpressed, as my N4 with custom rom/kernel beats the crap out of any iphone in fluidness and lagfree user experience any day.
2. Apple's not usually been faster in benchmarks, but as of the 4S they caught up a little for a while.
3. I don't quite understand how your device can beat the iPhone 5/5S in fluidness and lag-free-ness, considering they are both as fluid and lag free as a device can be.

Apple designs the A7. Samsung produces it.
Is it based off the A57 architecture? I thought I remember reading from Anandtech that it was too soon for that. (Even a license.)
I thought Apple's continued improving Swift (and switched to ARMv8 -- though maybe that and A57 are one in the same? I'm not certain) which is now "Cyclone."
