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.

in 2008 as it acquired Android. With only a year gap in development, Poole

Android devices, Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 in the latest Geekbench ranking.
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?
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

would’ve thought you were crazy.”-John Poole, founder, Primate Labs.
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.
mind is Apple and not Android. What do you think?
