Android and Apple have always been on a race for the best performance. And for a long time Apple has had a huge lead, the gap between them has grown shorter year after year. Qualcomm’s new Snapdragon 865 seems to be on par with Apple’s A13 bionic chip. Even though Android side of processors have been able to handle the Apple side has brought upon them for the last few years now they seem to be almost equals.

From the testing that has been made on the demonstration device that Qualcomm had offered the results seem to be interesting.

Benchmark Results

On Antutu the new Snapdragon 865 seems to be the best performer, this also seems to be the case for both 3DMark tests. But when it comes to Geekbench Apple takes the crown, on the single-core the A13 annihilates the competition, the same thing can not be said for the multi-core test where Snapdragon 865 falls short with 18 less points.
