    All depends on what you use your phone for.

    Once I setup my Oneplus One, Two, X or even Nexus 6P I made very few changes and just used it.

    I used to spend my time running custom kernels, flashing ROM'S, etc. But I got to the point I just want to use my phone.

    The Flagship phones are all fast enough and generally good enough that messing around to get them to work right now is not really necessary unless you enjoy spending your time doing it which I totally understand. I was there myself a few years back.

    I was always under the impression that the iPhone beats android in single tasks while Android excels in multitasking and using those extra cores. On benchmarks the single core tasks run quicker while Android can have better scores on multi core tasks.

    IPhones are great, fast devices there's no arguing that. However, it can't compete with Android's customizability.

    The OnePlus Two is or was marketed as the "2016 Flagship Killer" so I thought a thread comparing flagships to the OnePlus Two was appropriate.

    Sorry about creating extra work for you or the other mods.

    well, this is mostly true. The iPhone kills the Android in single core tasks, but then again most of Android's tasks are multi-core... It almost seems more fair to compare the single core scores of the iPhone to the multi core score of Android.

    Yea the few times I had my hands on an iPhone seemed it was a one trick pony in terms of multitasking lol gps, texting, music, or syncing with other apple products. Also their camera/screen is fine, but I just hate when they use the term "retina display" to make it sound more sophisticated and superior. Literally like any argument... "shut up I have retina display" lol

    That makes no sense. Cores are irrelevant. What matters is the type of design and how powerful the cores. We've had powerful and efficient Dual-Core and Quad-Core designs. Apple has made powerful and efficient Dual-Core and Tri-Core Custom Designs.

    Qualcomm and Apple haven't released SoC's this year at the same time as they have the past couple years. Qualcomm hasn't released any Custom Cores and stuck to the reference designs on the Snapdragon 810.

    And yes the iPhone 6S/iPhone 6S Plus are the fastest phones around by a league ahead at this time.

    Then why not find an optimal set-up with a solid ROM/Kernel and just keep it for 6 Months+ without updates? Then you waste no time.

    There is always something better once you start trying custom ROM'S. Spend some time.over at XDA and you blow hours just reading and learning let alone actually trying them out.

    I mean when you find your perfect set-up just keep it, and stop going flash-crazy. Although it's tempting when there's constant updates and new development and features. What matters for performance and control is a solid Custom Kernel. And Stock versus AOSP Custom ROMs. Particular ROM's don't have much in the way of differentiation other than say perhaps removed system applications, zip-aligning, random tweaks, customization. What matters for performance is the Custom Kernel. Anyways I'm alright with OOS/Boeffla for the time, and would love to see some CM13/Boeffla down the line if CM supports all the hardware features of the phone (FP Scanner, LAF).

    Personally I just hate IOS and the lack of costomizability so I don't give a crap about the IPhone 6 or My of its variants
