iPhone X May Be The Fastest Smartphone Ever Produced - See Benchmark Results

I know many of us may have been wondering how fast the newly launched iPhone X could be, considering the statement made by Apple Inc that "The iPhone X has the fastest processor ever used in a smartphone". That statement is very much arguable because most of us believes that flagship devices from Samsung and other brands has faster processors than the iPhone X's.

But while we argue and contemplate without facts and statistics to backup our claims, we may never win the argument because it takes evidence(s) to decide a winner in this sort of matters. By that, we all would agree with me that there may be no better way to know the fastest of two processors other checking out their benchmark tests and results.

By comparing these devices by their benchmark results, lots of questions would be answered and doubts cleared. Questions such as "Is the Apple Bionic A11 really the fastest processor ever used in a smartphone?",  "Could iPhone X be the fastest phone ever produced?", etc. Without wasting time, let us check out what we found as iPhone X's benchmark result on Geekbench.

Amazing! As you guys can see from the results up there, the Apple A11 Bionic processor wasn't just said to be fast, it is truly fast. Though things didn't go as expected because i never thought the iPhone 8 plus would be faster than the iPhone X, but the results proved my thoughts wrong.

However, you shouldn't take it upon yourself to argue with friends that the iPhone 8 plus is faster than the iPhone X which is also known as iPhone 10, and believed to be an upgrade of both the iPhone 8 and 8 Plus. This is because the difference in speed may never be noticed  even be a percent in most physical conditions. At least not when the difference in Geekbench score is only 10, and most notably they both have the same processor (Apple A11 Bionic).

I believe both questions i asked earlier on this post have been answered by these results we just saw. That makes the answer to the first question "Yes", and the second question probably "No" since the iPhone 8 plus has a slightly higher benchmark score.

Now let's compare the Apple A11 Bionic to one of the fastest processors on any smartphone. You would agree with me that there isn't any better device to run this comparison with other than the Samsung Galaxy Note 8 which has the highest benchmark score of all Android devices. Let's check out the benchmark score of the Samsung Galaxy Note 8 below.

Problem solved! Apple's A11 Bionic processor outperforms the processor on the Samsung Galaxy Note 8 by over 50 percent, as confirmed from their Geekbench results.
Now guess what that means, it means that Apple Inc was right after all about the A11 Bionic processor being the fastest of every other smartphone processor, excluding none.

  1. I think my phone Xiaomi Redmi note 4 x is the fastest.

    1. Haha, Note 4x is a fast phone - that is agreed. But it doesn't show up in the list of 30 fastest Android devices ooo

      The price is very good for its specs shaa.
