    If true, good for Apple, they finally gave their users something new.

    Benchmarks are only good for GPUs. Its really easy to sway benchmarks and your still limited to the connection via wifi for cellular or the speed of the ram/storage access.

    Yet when watching speed comparisons in real world usage we constantly see applications load within fraction of a second of each other or scroll through an Instagram feed faster than eyes can keep up with. These bench marks have not been relevant for a few generations of flag ships.
    Coming from a digital animation background what I can offer here is that until mobile phones are rendering 3D atmospheric effects in real time for games or AR, (more immersive Pokémon go anyone?) This is pointless.

    More bang for your buck with the note 8 Apple devices are nice but not customizable like android is. The note is fast enough for me plus the 6gb of ram is much better than Apple. I also hope that Oreo helps with battery life and multitasking.

    I'm inclined to agree to a point. I think it's been more than a few generations. Probably as far back as the Android 4.1 JB era.

    I can't stand benchmark tests being used as a measuring stick of how capable a device is. Too many times manufacturers have been found to optimize the device to look great on benchmark tests, but then it rarely carries over to actual every day usage. It would be awesome if Apple had come out with something like this that is really as good as it looks like it could be, because then it creates more competition. We'll see how it actually does in the wild.

    yes. what is that??? I got my son's hand-me-down iPad mini and it's snappy for it's age (5+years), but no reconfiguration on the home screen leaves it sitting unused. and I really don't like white for everything. shame.

    These measurements and tests are getting kind of passe, IMO. It was the same thing back in the early days of desktop and laptop computers, too. Now days, I doubt very many people really care about how fast their computer processor is. You'd have to buy pretty lowend computers for it not to be far more than adequate for most peoples use. I think it's pretty much the same in the flagship phone market these days, too.

    My one year old Pixel runs just like the day I got it in 2017.
    Battery life is better on Oreo than Nougat.
    Isn't that what iPhones do as well?
    And yes, the camera is still better than the iPhone 7 I got on launch day last year.
    So, in a nutshell, get a phone that works for you and ignore the benchmarks for the most part.

    Here's a good article I just read on CNet that kind of backs up what I said in my post a couple of posts up in this thread. It's about iPhone X, but I'd guess the same would apply to Note 8's:

    As with all these benchmark results - fans of the platform will cheer, rivals will say they're meaningless. Until the results reverse, at which point each side will do the same - faster than an A11 Bionic chip can compute a finger swipe.

    I pre-ordered my phone from Samsung direct, on 26 Aug, N7 promo. Still showing Pre-order on samsung.com. and no update on the fedex delivery manager about shipping. What should I do?

    Be patient and wait for it to ship, or cancel the order and get it somewhere else. For a $425 discount for my old S5, I'm choosing to be patient.

    The iPhone X may have a "new" chip but is using old screen tech they scarfed off Samsung. When you don't have to push as many nits as the Note8, and don't offer as many features, it's going to fly. Kind of like shoehorning a V8 in a Miata.

    Personally, I'll take the Hot Hatch Note8. Practical at everyday things. Fast enough to put a smile on your face, and looks good too.

    Nobody even thinks about any of this until it's posted. It's not info anybody seeks out. So it is pretty meaningless... Unless you're a super nerd.

    It was pretty popular for a while. Kind of like how 'speed tests' are now. I think most of even the nerd population now is like: As long as the phone runs fine, no worries.

    I think it gained popularity when it did was there were some very early Android devices that ran like crap.

    Early Android was crap and early iPhones were good.
    That isn't the case anymore.
    Andriod is still as customizable as ever and is now quite clean and the 82X series and up hardware is pretty decent. Battery life seems to keep getting better with each new generation of chips and software version as well.

    I am just simply amazed with the battery life on my Pixel after it got the Oreo update and TMO upgraded the towers nearby so that I get full signal at work.
