The iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus are performing well in early benchmarks

September 22, 2014

Apple’s recently released iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus are performing well in early benchmark tests. Across the board, the new handsets best others on the market, according to AnandTech.

The site found that the Apple A8 chip bests the A7 by upwards of 13 percent. They note:

This points towards a relatively similar underlying architecture, although it’s still too early to tell how much changes between the A7 and A8 CPU architectures. Next, we’ll look at GPU performance in 3DMark and GFXBench, although we’re still working on figuring out the exact GPU in A8.


AnandTech also found battery life on each handset to be quite good. Given the long-time problems Apple has experienced with past iPhone models, this is great news. They say:

Normally an 1810 mAh battery with 3.82V nominal voltage would be quite a poor performer, but the iPhone 6 is a step above just about every other Android smartphone on the market. The iPhone 6 Plus also has a strong showing, although not quite delivering outrageous levels of battery life the way the Ascend Mate 2 does.


The 4.7-inch iPhone 6 and 5.5-inch iPhone 6 Plus were released on Friday, Sept. 19. On Monday, Apple announced it had sold a record 10 million iPhone units during the first three days of release.
