Samsung Galaxy S4 smashes the competition in benchmark test

With a score nearly twice that of the iPhone 5, and a chunk quicker than the HTC One and Sony Xperia Z, the S4 is winning the smartphone race

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.
