    Default Many Benchmark Tests Show iPhone 6/6 Plus Are Some of the Fastest Phones Out There


    For those that have already purchased the 4.7-inch iPhone 6 or the 5.5-inch iPhone 6 Plus and are interested in how the devices perform against the competition, AnandTech has just revealed a series of benchmark scores for several different aspects of the device, including Web performance, graphics, physics, frames per second, and battery life. Numerous different benchmark tests have been used, so results vary depending on the test used.

    In terms of Web rendering performance, the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus are the top in their class. Right below them are the iPhone 5s, NVIDIA SHIELD tablet, Huawei Honor 6, and Samsung Galaxy S 5 (in that order). Some other benchmark tests also include the HTC One and Motorola Moto One in places 6 and 7, although the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus are still at the top, if not near the top of the list (fighting for first, second, and even third place) in various benchmark tests.

    In graphics, the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus are no slouch either. At the top of the list is NVDIA's SHIELD tablet, but just below that are the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus, followed by the Samsung Galaxy S 5, HTC One, Motorola Moto X, and iPhone 5s.



    In terms of physics, the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus are at the bottom of the list, followed by the iPhone 5s. At the top of the list are the Motorola Moto X, Samsung Galaxy Note 3, Samsung Galaxy S 5, Google Nexus 6, and LG G2. For whatever reason, it looks like Apple wasn't really trying too hard in this department.



    In frames-per-second benchmark tests, the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus both really do a great job in both on-screen and off-screen performance. In terms of on-screen performance, the NVIDIA SHIELD tablet takes the lead, followed by the iPhone 5s, iPhone 6, iPhone 6 Plus, HTC One, Motorola Moto X, and Samsung Galaxy S 5. In terms of off-screen performance, the NVIDIA SHIELD tablet takes the lead, followed by the iPhone 6 Plus, Samsung Galaxy S 5, iPhone 6, iPhone 5s, and HTC One.



    And lastly, in terms of battery life, the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus d an excellent job pitting against the performance. At the top of the list is the Huawei Ascend Mate 2, followed by the iPhone 6 Plus, HTC One, Motorola Moto X, iPhone 6, and HTC One. It's worth noting that the iPhone 6 Plus has a huge battery in it (much larger than the iPhone 6), as found by iFixit in their tear-down.

    There are also a lot more benchmark tests available on AnandTech, so if you're interested in the whole scoop from our friends, give them a look at this link.

    Are you happy with your iPhone 6 or iPhone 6 Plus? – In a recent poll, we asked you guys if you were happy with your new device and most of you said yes!

    When you pay $500-$1000 for a phone, I would hope you'd be happy with it!

    what does "physics" refer to?

    I don't see a huge speed boost when I compare my 6+ to my 5s. I think the bigger screen along with the new slim design, is what makes this phone hot this year.

    Motion, perhaps?

    Synthetic benchmarks... Mean.. Nothing. It's another quality piece of hardware. You don't need benchmarks to back that up, that's what Android does.

    Well I actually do physics in my job but I do that on multicore workstations; YTH would I want to do that on my phone?

    Nope! Got email this morning and text that the phone has shipped. Got a tracking number Can't wait!!!

    Physics are physical calculations (pure math), such as when two virtual objects collide that have physical properties assigned to them. Physical properties meaning bounce, weight, gravity (mass), friction, rigidity, etc. Fling an Angry Bird at a structure in that game to see physics in action.

    Adding different properties to game objects can make them react in seemingly realistic ways when they encounter one another: heavy objects push lighter objects out of the way, round objects roll on hard surfaces or float or sink on water, etc.

    As for the benchmark, it seems that Metal is responsible for physics. There's likely a separate processor withing the A8 chip that offloads all or most physics calculations from the main CPU. The 3DMark benchmark does not account for this (but will be updated soon - Last update was in March), so the iPhone is likely doing all the calculations on the main A8 CPU, which will bog down the system. Once those calculations are re-routed through the Metal engine I wouldn't be surprised if the iPhone flew to the top of the performance chart.

    $1000 to the person who can actually notice the difference that any of these "tests" imply. Sorry but the true test is the overall functionality of the device, and Im sorry to say Android will always win hands down due to the ability to perform many tasks on the hardware rather then needing a computer with extra software to manage it.

    Thank you!!! That's exactly what I was asking. Great explanation!

    Post in one of these threads when you get it!! Love my 6!!! I usually swap my Sim card between my last jailbroken device and my new phone each year for several weeks because I get so bored of stock. But I haven't put down my 6 since I got it on Friday. I just love it! Now with quick reply for texts, one of the main reasons I jailbreak, biteSMS, is now incorporated into Messages. I miss my pictures from my contacts next to each message thread from biteSMS… So there's still things I'm looking forward to jailbreaking for.

    Ya one of the reasons I went with the 6 plus also was the contact pics in messages. One less tweak! One of the main reasons for me to jailbreak was to hotspot and tether. But if I give up my unlimited data for the 10GB mobile share? I'll have those features now. So about the only reason left to JB is for theming my phone lol plus whatever new tweaks or apps they come up with in cydia lol

    If A person goes and spends 500-1000$ on a phone doesn't have to worry about it. If the phone is not up to satisfaction am pretty sure he'll sell it on Ebay for 450-950$. And someone will surely pick it up.

    If the 6 and 6+ have the same processor, RAM, and OS, how are they performing differently?

    ......beware......
    Just your friendly neighborhood Spider-Man!

    Yes, we will all ignore objective test results and take you purely on your word, even though, base on your comment history, you dislike Apple so much you have likely never even touched an iPhone, let alone used one enough to give a valid comparison.

    That last part... I don't even understand what that means.

    They need to improve the physics processing in their chips. Otherwise I'm really impressed!
