Android is Many Miles Behind iPhone Says Geekbench Founder

The smartphone competition is dominated by mobile operating systems of Google and Apple. And over the past few years, Apple has created a performance gap between the iPhone and Android powered handsets, by creating powerful chipsets that it has employed on its iconic smartphones.

Apple made the first iOS version available to the public in 2007 when the first-generation iPhone model was launched. Google followed suit in 2008 as it acquired Android. With only a year gap in development, Poole questions why Android "has seemed to stagnate".

iPhone has created tough and powerful chipsets that its smartphones use. The most recent of these chips is the A11 Bionic chipset which utterly defeated one of the best chips in Android devices, Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 in the latest Geekbench ranking.

John Poole, the founder of Primate Labs, the company that created the Geekbench benchmark test, points out that the new iPhone models are scoring more than 50% higher on Geekbench when compared to flagship type Android phones. As far as Poole is concerned, the big question is why are we seeing this hike in performance for Apple only?

According to him, "The thing that I don’t fully understand is why performance has seemed to stagnate on the Android side. Where you don’t see these big leaps forward. I don’t understand what’s happening there. At this point, you’ve got desktop-class performance in a handset. There’s no way of looking at it any other way. I wouldn’t have thought to use my first-generation iPhone to edit video. I would’ve thought you were crazy."-John Poole, founder, Primate Labs.

In truth, Apple and Android are really not at par when it comes to the chipset on its smartphones because Apple designs its own chips thus it can control its chip usage. On the other hand, Android phones are built by numerous companies which get their chipsets from several chipmakers and the end result is an odd performance which makes it difficult for Android to be on par with Apple.

When you talk about speed, the first thing that comes to your mind is Apple and not Android. What do you think?
