Cheapest iPhone Has More Processor Power Than Most Expensive Android

Android Central says “The cheapest iPhone has a more powerful processor than the most expensive Android phone”. Yup… the $399 iPhone SE kicks the ass of every Android phone by a mile, and then some.

Embarrassing… Almost makes me wanna cry for Android.

…Nah, not really.
