Samsung phones have been quite the leaders whenever benchmark scores are at question. Whenever the company launches a new smartphone, you’d see it at the top of the charts already. But this time around, it is Apple and its latest iPhones that are winning it with the Geekbench benchmark scores, and thanks to the A10 chip, the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus have much higher scores when compared to their Android’s best scorers.

For the single-core scoring in Geekbench testing, the iPhone 7 scored almost double than that of the Samsung Galaxy S7, which was the leader otherwise. The Galaxy S7 had a score of 1,806 while the iPhone 7 / 7 Plus got a score of 3,450. In the multi-core tests, the competition was quite tough but the iPhones emerge as the winners.

Here are some of the top scorers and you can see how Apple iPhones are leading with the big numbers.

iPhone 7/7 Plus 3,450 5,630
Samsung Galaxy S7 1,806 5,213
Samsung Galaxy Note 7 1,786 5,228
Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge 1,744 5,203
Huawei P9 1,729 4,735
OnePlus 3 1,698 4,015

Now, this might seem a bit overboard, but the iPhone 7 and 7 Plus are scoring higher than even the Macbook Air that was released in 2015.


If that was not enough, a Twitter user reports of the scores being better than those of the $6500 12-core Mac Pro. Seems Apple’s chip designers have been working well to make the A10 a better performing one than the competition.
