The iPhone 4S joins the processor trend by having a dual-core A5 processor but unlike the other smartphones which have dual-core processors clocked from 1GHz up to 1.2GHz, Apple’s iPhone 4S A5 processor is only clocked at 800MHz. Most people out there will be so disappointed with such a speed especially from Apple.
AnandTech did a benchmark test to test how fast is the iPhone 4S really is. With Apple claiming the iPhone 4S is 2 times faster and gives 7 times faster graphics, we hope this test does not prove otherwise.
Take a look at the results:
iPhone 4S have a lower clocked A5 processor compared to the iPad 2. Mostly due to power management.

From all the results shown, the 800MHz A5 processor does not disappoint at all. It is indeed very impressive, scoring better compared to other smartphones with faster processors.
