Over the weekend, Apple set a new record by selling over 10 million iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus handsets. Now that the devices are finally in the hands of customers all over the world, benchmark tests are an easy way to find out how well your device stacks up against the competition.
For new iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus owners, the performance benchmark results that AnandTech was able to put together reveal that Apple’s newest flagship handsets once again perform quite well across the board. That includes overall performance from apps like Safari, compared to Chrome and Internet Explorer, through the SunSpider test. The results show an overall 13 percent performance increase thanks to Apple’s new A8 chipset under the hood. The results also noted a significant improvement to the overall GPU performance as well.
For new iPhone owners that are worried about their battery life, the benchmark tests show that there might not actually be much there to worry about, even if you picked up an iPhone 6 (which features a battery measured in at 1810mAh):
“As one can see, it seems that Apple has managed to do something quite incredible with battery life. Normally an 1810 mAh battery with 3.82V nominal voltage would be quite a poor performer, but the iPhone 6 is a step above just about every other Android smartphone on the market. The iPhone 6 Plus also has a strong showing, although not quite delivering outrageous levels of battery life the way the Ascend Mate 2 does.“
