Strongest Android chess engine?

It's been one year since i'd submitted a post named like the above. I couldn't foresee it would remain the most displayed post ever in this blog. That's weird but true. Nothing matters but keywords, no matter whether they were used on purpose or not.

To me it's shocking to see people still googleing for something obvious. If you wanna know the big secret, let me tell that the original compile of Stockfish 6, available on stockfishchess.org, is the strongest Android engine to date that one may run in his device. Dot. Finito.
You don't believe that? Ok. First you may follow Rapidroid results here in this blog to be sure. Otherwise, you can launch a thousand game match between Komodo 8 and Stockfish to find the same. Your own choice, your processor, your time.

I wanted to come back to the same subject again under the same post title, because i don't want people to jump into a dusty n' rusty topic sent one year ago which states an older version. Reading this one is much better and up to date. Meanwhile, you'd better stop googleing for the strongest engine unless long awaited Komodo 9 comes up.
