[BGR] iPhone 5s slaughters quad-core rivals in performance tests despite dual-core CPU and just 1GB of RAM - Page 42

post #411 of 418
As post number 411 that will never be read...

Its all apples to oranges. Like saying AMD 2 GHz is the same as Intel 2Ghz. One will do something better than another. Whenever the new one comes out, it will outperform the others by a little bit. Apple or whoever may be on top, but its just by a small margin.

IMO, buy a phone that looks and feels right. If you like the way apple works and feels, awesome. If you like android because of ______ awesome.

I don't trust tests like these because it basing the CPU on a browser test. Of those phones, which browser was it running off of? Were the phones updated to latest release? Who knows.

These highly marketable people don't understand that Android needs more cores and power because it isn't a real OS, but a pseudo one.





Lastly, having a quad-core Android phone is meaningless...    they are no better than the cheap/free ones, because they run the same inferior OS, under the same inferior ecosystem.


Your post is just kookoo.gif

1. Not all Android phones are "Free"
2. An iPhone 4S is "Free" at AT&T
3. Android + iOS is an "Operating System"
4. Android + iOS is used by many government organizations

Conclusion:
Android is a highly customizable OS that lets users fit their phone to their lifestyle. iOS is a simple, intuitive, and fun to use OS
that is more of a one-size-fits-all solution. Both operating systems are highly secure when precautions are taken.

Your personal information is worth more than you might think to google/apple/ms. For example, if I were one of those companies and I knew what your favourite colour is, what your favourite car brand is and if you have a family, I could sell that information to that company and they would make an advert like "New Ford Fusion, now available in red"

Except Google doesn't sell any of that information to X company (Ford, in your example) as that defeats their entire business purpose. GOOGLE handles all the advertising, Ford doesn't do a thing other than provide Google with the advertisement they want, along with some idea of who the target market is. If Google sold all that information to Ford/etc, none of those companies would have a reason to pay Google again in the future for advertising. It's to Google's own benefit to not release your information off to anyone else. As opposed to selling all our information for $1 apiece, they charge companies several pennies apiece, repeatedly for the next decade or however long they would like to advertise with Google. I honestly don't understand why so many people fail to understand that concept and think Google are off selling all the data they have on you to companies like Intel/Ford/the other companies you see advertisements for. Believe me, it's Google's GOAL to NOT let your information leave the company. Any compromise in that data would give up billions of dollars of revenue to a competing advertising business.

Regardless, I don't even see why this topic came up as it has absolutely nothing to do with the 5S "slaughtering" quad-core rivals.

LOL What? Have you seen the Android source code.... It is open source after all. LMAO!



As for the topic at hand. Don't all of these phone manufacturers cheat on these benchmarks anyways. I think we all know Benchmarks are completely irrelevant between two different OS's.

Android is open sourced and built off of a Linux Kernel, and Apples IOS is closed source, but is built off of Darwin OS, which is an open source Unix OS that was mostly made by Apple anyways.

As for google gathering more info on you, yes, thats google, they store everyones personal info... but the same can be said about Microsoft AND Apple. They are no different really, the only thing to be worried about is that Google probably has the most info about you.

As for marketing mumbo jumbo, there is one thing that has merit. I'd call Win 8 the marketing crap for which they took Win7 and added a layer on top of it trying to create a new user experience. At the same time, other telecom providers do the same thing. HTC will wrap the Android OS with their "Sense" which adds some things here and there allowing them to customize it a bit. That is a bit wonky, but Android itself is untampered. This is actually one of the reasons why i wanted a Nexus phone. I didnt want some provider adding their own crap ruining the OS.

Not that it really matters this late in the thread but I'd like to see how the Nokia Lumia 1520 does against its rivals. I had the dual core 920 and now own the quad core 1520 and as far as image and video processing it is incredibly faster. I'd like to see it ran with these CPU tests and what not to see how it does smile.gif
