If there was ever a war between iPhone and Android smartphone users that was almost always won by Android users, it is the war of who has the fastest smartphones. Android smartphones were typically released with beefy multi-core processors that always looked good on paper, but that has all changed with Apple’s new A11 Bionic processor. Not only is the A11 Bionic processor faster, but when compared to that of Android smartphones, it’s kind of embarrassing for Android users to see the difference.
Roughly a month before the new iPhone X, iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus were released, Geekbench scores were leaked, revealing what seems to be a very impressive performing smartphone. Now that the iPhones have officially been announced, running final hardware, and are in the hands of iPhone testers at Apple, we can finally take a look at the official Geekbench scores that were recorded by the app.
As you can see in the screenshots below, the single core result of the iPhone X, iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus range from 4028 to 4195, while the multi-core results of all three iPhones range from 9287 to an incredible 10005. In comparison the Samsung Galaxy S8 which is the best performing android device has a single core score of 1965 and a multi-core score of 6494. it’s almost shameful to compare Samsung’s Galaxy S8’s Geekbench scores to that of the new iPhones.

Feel free to head on over to Geekbench for a closer look at these charts. “Geekbench is a cross-platform processor benchmark, with a scoring system that separates single-core and multi-core performance, and workloads that simulate real-world scenarios.”
Geekbench is among one of the most popular apps used by both Android and IOS users to test the processor performance scores of their smartphones. While the iPhone scores are impressive, I do have to point out that Geekbench has been criticized by “Linus Torvalds, who is the creator and principal developer of the Linux kernel,” Torvalds explains that Geekbench “shows partiality for IOS devices and being a bad performance on x86-based systems.”
While there might be some question of whether the iOS and Android scores are fair, it is still very obvious that Apple’s new iPhones are crazy fast when compared to the competition.
