Samsung Galaxy S4 smashes the competition in benchmark test
The journalists' fingerprints have barely been wiped off the Samsung Galaxy S4's screen following its all-singing, all-dancing launch, and already it's showing its mettle against the competition in a benchmarking test.
The Samsung Galaxy S4 (read our hands-on review) managed a whopping score of 3163 on the Geekbench 2 speed test, almost double that of the iPhone 5’s 1596. The HTC One managed 2687 while the Sony Xperia Z got 1986, just below the Google Nexus 4’s 2040.
That score's for the American version of the Galaxy S4, which comes packing a Qualcomm Snapdragon 600 quad-core running at 1.9GHz, rather than the international version's Samsung-built Exynos 5 Octa SoC processor. We'll be testing the Octa Core version soon in our full review – check back soon to find out how it fares.
