Apple puts bare minimums in their phones? They have the fastest mobile SoC on the market. They also have extremely tight control over their software and OS. The fact is... they don't need 4GB ram on their phones. Instead, they have an NVMe storage controller, which costs a lot.

The fact is that Apple does not need the bloated specifications of android phones in order to be the fastest.

There are a lot of things missing with today's iPhone.

1) OLED
2) Curved Screen
3) 1440p+ Screen
4) Wireless Charging
5) VR Headset
6) SD Slot
7) Dual Sim

These are things they most likely introduce in the future are all new and unseen before. What they do they do well. They are no longer leader. They used to have best hardware and software. Now its just a iOS ecosystem prison for most people.

Apple still has the fastest phones on the market. There is no doubt that Samsung has surpassed them in features (or gimmicks, depending on how you see it), but in terms of intangibles (the overall user experience), Apple is still the king in Smartphones. Otherwise, my 2+ year old Note 4 would be the superior device... and it isn't. Not even close.

The S8 could change this... and I really hope it does.

I was a bit disappointed with the iPhone 7 GPU throttling since I've known Apple to barely throttle during gaming. Then again, I am more interested in future handheld consoles with these powerful SoC's I have been eyeing.

They have the most optimized OS. We haven't seen their SoC run anything other than IOS. So while you can draw the conclusion that is the fastest... I can't.

You are trying to oppose my post by saying Apple doesn't need this and that lol. Why post if you are saying the same thing in other words?

What on Earth are you on about??? Nothing spectacular since the Note 4??? How about the S6 Edge? The Note 5? I'd even toss in the Note 7 despite its manufacturing defect considering what a spectacular device it was (I had two of them so i know). Samsung makes the only phones that I'm remotely interested in these days which is unfortunate for me since I'd love to like something else after my Note 7 experience, and this new S8 is easily the best phone for 2017 so far. After having played around with it at BB today i can confidently say its the most stunning smart phone I've ever seen and another home run for Samsung. I wonder if they will ever get bored of making the best phones out there? biggrin.gif

I was also struck by just how small these phones actually are in the hand despite their massive screens. My S7 Edge is nearly as big as the S8 Plus and much larger than the regular S8.

Since the Note 4. Features have been removed and removed. I have a note 5 and note 4. So I got my experience first hand. Thank you

Benchmarks don't make something "the fastest". Benchmarks show the potential of a product. Optimization and integration assist more with making something fast than brute strength.

However, if you look at the benchmarks, the optimization, and the integration... Apple has it all. Especially in the benchmarks, where Apple sweeps any CPU benchmarks by a fairly wide margin. Yes, iOS is highly optimized, but it's also got very powerful internals.

Cool. I have the Note 4 and the iPhone 7. I will tell you right now that the iPhone 7 trounces the Note 4 when it comes to speed and responsiveness. App loading and gaming will blitz the Note 4 by 2-4x the loading speed. After that, the apps/games on the iPhone are smoother, more optimized, better looking, etc.

Which is all hilarious, because if you were looking purely @ specs, the Note 4 should be the better device... but it's not. Not even close.

Looking at specs shows the note 4 is slower than iphone 7... What are you talking about?
