After the introduction of the new iPhone, we compared its new processor with the best Android chips from Qualcomm, Samsung and Huawei. What will be the best processor?
Apple A11 Vs. Snapdragon 835, Exynos 8995, Kirin 970
A few years ago, Apple's processors were below the direct rivals of Android. Fortunately for those of Cupertino, things have changed to the point where they sometimes meet at a higher level.
How are things today? The Apple A11 has improved considerably compared to the previous year, so compared the key features of the most powerful mobile processors on the market.
 Samsung M1 cores up to 2.3GHz and 4 cores Cortex A53 up to 1.7GHz.
Up to 1Gbps down and 150Mbps up.
Up to 1 Gbps down and 150Mbps up. Down and 150Mbps load.
Qualcomm Quickcharge 3.0 and 4.0, DSP Hexagon 682
Snapdragon 835: The Best of Qualcomm
Snapdragon 835: The Best of Qualcomm
The Snapdragon 835 is the benchmark processor in the high-end market. The main reason is its availability since it is the only model that today is open to most manufacturers. If we exclude Apple, Samsung and Huawei, the rest of the high-end terminals on the market have a Snapdragon 835 (even some variants of Samsung high-end include it).
What are the main benefits? The performance of your custom processor and graphics processor by the manufacturer itself, plus a number of proprietary technologies such as Modem, DSP and ISP for image processing or the highly qualified Qualcomm Quickcharge.

Exynos 8995: Excellent but …

On the other hand, we have the Samsung Exynos 8995 processor, which stands out for being at the peak of the Snapdragon 835 in terms of performance and power consumption.
According to Samsung, the best advantages of the Samsung processor reside in security; thanks to its Iris scanner; and an image recognition technology called VPU, Vision Process Unit technology that allows us to scan objects with the camera and used in its Bixby Vision wizard.

Kirin 970, betting on artificial intelligence
Huawei is a company that a few years ago was involved in the development of its own processors in order to have the greatest control of its terminals. To date, Huawei's processors have been one step behind those of Qualcomm and Samsung, but are approaching more and more in terms of performance.
To date, it is the only processor that does not have a custom architecture (they use the standard ARM architecture), although it has a special feature. Already last year, Huawei has integrated an artificial intelligence chip that interacts with the system to load applications before we need them. The intelligence of the Kirin 970 promises to be much more powerful and efficient, but until October 16 we will not know the first cell phone to enjoy.

Apple A11 Bionic
In the new Apple processor, we find a six-core architecture. Apple claims that it is 25% faster than the previous A10 chip in day-to-day tasks and 70% more powerful when using all cores . Your graphics processor has also improved and is now 30% more powerful than what we saw on the Apple A10.
At the presentation, the company introduced the Apple A11 image processor, which can record 4K video at 60FPS and record 1080p slow motion at 240FPS. Another advantage of its new image processing is its new capacity for augmented reality, a technology we believe will be very important in the future.
As an extra, Aion Bionic uses a technology called Neural Engine on the iPhone X for facial recognition using a series of cameras and sensors, which promises to be even safer than the fingerprint reader.
