Samsung’s New S4 vs iPhone 5 Still, Benchmark Focuses on US Version
Benchmark indicates that the Verizon, Sprint, AT&T and T-Mobile Samsung Galaxy S4 would be more powerful than Apple iPhone 5.
Article written by Kevin Go – The guys over at Android Authority were lucky enough to be able to have enough time to run some benchmark tests on a Snapdragon 600-powered Samsung Galaxy S4 variant that’s bound to hit U.S. shores within April, naturally, the number-crunching prowess of Sammy’s new flagship smartphone is once again showcased with a bit of help from Geekbench 2 and Antutu.
Based on the leaked image posted by the site, the Galaxy S4 singlehandedly smoked the competition with its quad-core Snapdragon 600 ticker clocked at 1.9 gigahertz — besting even the stars of last year’s Android handsets such as the Galaxy Note 2 and Galaxy S3, its predecessor. Sony’s flagship Xperia Z smartphone trailed behind with a score of 20,607 which is about a quarter lower than the Galaxy S4′s 25,900.
On Geekbench 2, the Galaxy S4 was able to achieve an incredibly high score of 3,163 points that’s equivalent to my old Vaio CS’s Core2Duo processor and the old quad-core Intel Xeon E5320 (almost)! It even left two other popular flagships — the Apple iPhone 5 and BlackBerry Z10 — drowning in shame with the former garnering a score of 1,647 and the latter, 1,437 points.
Considering that the Snapdragon 600 is based on the Xperia Z and LG Nexus 4′s Snapdragon S4 Pro, the architectural tweaks done by Qualcomm to its previous top-end system-on-a-chip is very much apparent, saying that the Snapdragon 600 is a rebadged S4 Pro may seem correct but it is definitely not ‘just rebranded’ in terms of performance, saying that it’s an S4 Pro ‘Plus’ is an insult, put quite simply, the Galaxy S4 blows!
