    This is why I don't take benchmarks as an indicator of how good a phone is overall. iOS is optimized to just run 1 app efficiently, while background apps are suspended. At the core, Android has supported multiple levels of systems like live widgets, dynamic notifications, and true multitasking. A good example of this is using an IRC client on iOS versus Android. If you push an IRC client far into the background of iOS, it will suspend any incoming chat messages until you switch back to it. While IRC on Android always stays active in the background, so it will continue to receive all messages, even when the IRC app isn't the active app.

    iOS does have multitasking, but only when you specifically enable it, and not all apps support it natively. While Android, at its core, has had true multitasking.

    I would take those Android functions over the synthetic perceived speediness of benchmarks.

    The reason apple's geekbench scores are high is because IOS is optimized to run on iPhones and only iPhones. Note 8 running andriod with a skin on + a million features is not optimizing it. If Samsung creates its OS completely from scratch then those 6gbs of ram will crush, burn then bury the iphone
