[AnandTech] iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus Preliminary Results

post #1 of 31
Thread Starter 
Quote:
Overall, while there’s still a great deal of work left to do to exhaustively evaluate the iPhone 6s and 6s Plus, the initial results are quite positive. I haven’t finished a detailed investigation into the architecture of Twister, but I suspect we’re looking at some pretty significant changes compared to Typhoon, which would be unlike the smaller move from Cyclone to Typhoon. The GPU improvements are enormous, and while we don’t have enough data to determine whether the iPhone 6s retains the same sustained GPU performance that we saw in the iPhone 6, the peak performance figures are impressive to say the least. The SSD-like storage solution is also a major surprise, and likely to be overlooked as its effects are often hard to distinguish without direct comparison. Battery life does regress in a single test, but I suspect in real-world situations with less of a focus on the display battery life will either be equal or favor the iPhone 6s, so it will be interesting to see if Apple's battery life estimates remain as accurate as they traditionally have been. We’ve definitely discovered much more about the iPhone 6s than what we’re able to cover in this initial article, so stay tuned for the full review.

Definitely looks good so far. This pushes them into direct competition with Android devices for the first time in a while.

Really? I remember reading the AnandTech articles on the A8/X CPU and seeing it "in direct competition" at the time. Obviously Android devices have caught up and surpassed it since then but the A9 has lept ahead again.

I just wonder what will be the selling point in the near future. Even $150 Android phones are blazing fast nowadays.

Perhaps a mini version the size of a iphone 4 can help them with their decrease in demand...
Most phones are so big they don't fit comfortably in my pocket.

Uhh what? Apple has always had specs that was a direct competition to the competitors. The only thing that makes Apple look like they're lagging behind is because Android has multiple High End phones coming out every few months.

Ummm .... Where have you been? Because Apple doesn't give their phones away for market share purposes doesn't mean they are not competition.

You have small pockets. My i6 fits just fine. headscratch.gif

The same selling point they have always had - the name "Apple".

99% of smartphone buyers care about cool sounding names not powerful hardware.

Not thrashing, this phone is good for people who will be upgrading from iphone 4s/iphone 5. Also the way things are these days, android has an edge for few motnhs, apple comes up with a new iPhone, then again another android phone comes which is at par/better than iPhones. thumb.gif
There are people who wouldnt know if you gave them an iPhone 6 hardware in a 6s case but they would still claim its faster, better than anything thats on the market, previous iPhones included. Thats the perception apple has created in the minds of the fanboys. rolleyes.gif
