A wave of excitement and a flurry of accolades accompanied the release of the flagship HTC 10 and Samsung Galaxy S7. Each in his time and by long tradition designated the title of “killer” iPhone 6s, the characteristics of which should grow dim in comparison with the new headliners of the market. However, in real tests, none of them managed to surpass even the “old man” in the face of the iPhone 6. In games at least.
The relevance of the A8 processor and the smartphones Apple sixth generation was confirmed in the wording of Gizmodo.
