Reviews would be incomplete without benchmarks, right?

The reviews for Apple's iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus have been positive. They were too good, in fact, that Apple sold over 10 million iPhones in 72 hours - another milestone for the Cupertino-based technology company. Reviews would be incomplete without benchmarks, and we couldn't think of a better authority to evaluate the new iPhones other than AnandTech.

The site did some benchmark tests on the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus, and the results were fluctuating. For example, in the SunSpider benchmark, the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus were at the top of the list. The iPhone 5S came in third, followed by the Nvidia Shield tablet and the Nokia Lumia 930.

The Kraken browser benchmarks, on the other hand, are a different story. The Nvidia Shield tablet came first, while the iPhone 6 Plus and the iPhone 6 landed in the second and third spot.

AnandTech also tested the GPU performance of the new iPhones using 3DMark and GFXBench. Although the powerful Shield tablet from Nvidia topped the benchmarks, Apple's iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus were trailing closely behind.

Furthermore, the battery tests were also favorable in spite of the 1,810 mAh battery on the iPhone 6. While the iPhone 6 fell behind Motorola's Moto G and the One (E8) from HTC, it performed better than its predecessor, the iPhone 5s.

On the other hand, the iPhone 6 Plus and its 2,915 mAh battery hurled the phone at the second spot, following the Huawei Ascend Mate 2, which has the best battery to date. If you love benchmarks, feel free to check out AnandTech's post here
