This upcoming Android phone didn’t just beat the iPhone X’s benchmark scores, it crushed them
Apple's iPhone lineup has a long history of confusing Android fans. By that, we mean that new iPhone specs don't typically appear all too impressive on paper. They always have processors with fewer cores and lower clock speeds than the latest Android flagships, and they typically have less RAM as well. Despite the edge Android phones have always had on paper, iPhones have absolutely crushed every Android-powered rival in real-life speed tests and in benchmark tests. In fact, previous-generation iPhone models typically beat brand new Android phones in these tests, that's how far ahead of the competition Apple's iPhones have always been... until now.
Android phone makers and key component suppliers like Qualcomm have made huge strides over the past year. Couple that with RAM management problems and other performance issues in iOS 11, and a changing of the guard has taken place that continues to surprise us all.
