iPhone 6s reportedly outperforms competition in benchmarks
An owner of the iPhone 6s has reportedly tested the new smartphone on Geekbench 3 and the results are surprisingly good. The 6s outperformed last year's iPhone 6 and 6 Plus by a large margin, and was also able to beat out competing Android smartphones as well. Something very interesting about the results is that the new smartphone's scores were nearly as powerful as Apple's new MacBook laptops that just released earlier this year.
The reviewer who benchmarked the iPhone 6s and 6s Plus is blogger John Gruber, and using Geekbench 3 he was able to obtain a 2500 score in the single-core test and a score of 4340 in the multi-core test. These scores are about 50% better than the iPhone 6. According to Gruber, although some Android smartphones perform higher in the multi-core test because some have more cores, the single-core test is the real score that matters, and Apple's latest offering is a great performer.
The results of the benchmarks are very telling and show that Apple is dedicated to bringing a lot of power and performance to the new phones. Many who have reviewed the iPhone 6s believe that the upgrades for this 's' generation are better than in previous years, but it will take a while to see if the general public feels the same way.
