Apple A10 vs A9 vs Snapdragon 820 vs Exynos 8890. Is iPhone 7 the fastest phone ever?

The iPhone 7 got released this week and as soon as a phone gets released, enthusiasts run benchmarks on it to test the guts. As a result, the phone gets etched to the database of many popular benchmarking sites. 

I have scoured through those sites and hence present you how the iPhone compares to the latest android phones and it's predecessor in multiple tests testing the CPU and GPU. 

First of all, let's start with the CPU since it's the silicon that runs most of the tasks and hence is a good indicator of the usual performance of the system. 

Devices chosen:

A10: iPhone 7A9: iPhone 6sSnapdragon 820: Oneplus 3Exynos 8890: Galaxy S7

Geekbench 4: Snapdragon 820 vs A9 vs Exynos 8890

As you probably know, Geekbench 4 was released yesterday making a whole lot of changes from Geekbench 3. The changed tests and baseline changed the rankings between processors a bit and is generating a lot of buzz, and along with it comes a lot of misinformation. 

So let's investigate this further and see how the scores have changed and why?
