iPhone 7 Benchmarks: It’s Faster Than All MacBook Airs Ever, Top Android Phones In 2016


Apple ever thinks different to make a big deal regarding the new product line as A10 Fusion chip ships in iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus, makes sense though. Apple’s new range of smartphones are extremely fast, as outlined by the recently-revealed Geekbench scores when compared against leading Android handsets of 2016.

Of course, the iPhone 7 is faster than its own desktop and notebook range of all MacBook Air line as well. The iPhone 7’s Geekbench scores shows that the device not only competes Samsung’s Galaxy S7 from a single-core score perspective, but also theoretically outperforms all of Apple’s MacBook Air models, and even comes very closer to the performance of a MacBook Pro.

The iPhone 7’s single-core scores is an extremely impressive feat, jumped to 3,450, almost twice as fast as the highest ranking Android-powered device, which currently is Samsung Galaxy S7. Reason? After all, iPhone 7 contains a chipset that is far capable of producing 3x the performance of the iPhone 6, and undoubtedly outputs Geekbench scores that are better than any MacBook Air model ever made by Apple, both rivaling at single-core and multi-core level.

What’s more impressive is how the iPhone 7 performs comparably with a 2013 MacBook Pro on both single/multi-core benchmarks. Looking at these scores initially outlines just how better the new iPhone 7 is from a performance and technical perspective.

About Geekbench, which is one of the popular benchmarking solution that has been working extremely hard in recent times to ensure that smartphone and laptop scores have more relevance to one another. Still, it is worth noting that it doesn’t mean that an iPhone 7 can execute tasks and handle processes and apps better than a full-fledged computer.


Although, Geekbench results tells us how capable the specific device is at performing tests designed to benchmark a device. In the real-world test, it doesn’t actually tell us how capable the device is at performing that users do on a daily basis, such as invoking apps and loading content, as browsing content on the Internet Web. There are other variables at play, like an internal SSD that can be determine the performance of a device type.

Finally, the numbers speak and should definitely give consumers confidence about the Apple’s iPhone 7, that it’s a powerhouse of a device that can more authentically hold its own stamp in this saturated smartphone market.
