Snapdragon 600 Galaxy S4 outwits all competitors, trashes the iPhone 5 in benchmark test


We all know Samsung’s devotion & commitment to produce the best smartphones out there, especially when it comes to flagship devices with a respectable performance-power efficiency balance and the recently announced Galaxy S4 just proves that!

You may all know that the Galaxy S4 will come in two very different flavors; an international Exynos 5410 SoC (Exynos 5 Octa) while the U.S carriers and countries like Sweden will embrace the Snapdragon 600 powered variant. At this time nothing is know about the raw benchmark performance of the Exynos version but we’re already seeing early scores of its little Snapdragon brother.

The 1.9GHz quad-core Snapdragon 600-powered Galaxy S4 managed to break the 3000 point ceiling totaling a final score of 3163 points, that’s 476 points more than the HTC One which features the same SoC albeit clocked at a slower speed. This cannot be entirely attributed to the 200MHz difference but also to the internal optimizations and tweaks done by Samsung to further improve the device performance.


It’s obvious that the Snapdragon 600 Galaxy S4 will be the fastest Android device when released but it’s only a beginning, we’ve yet to see the Exynos 5 Octa variant in action. The beast hasn’t yet unveiled it’s raw performance!

It should be noted that benchmark results do not necessarily translate into real life performance, those largely irrelevant numbers are just indicators of how the silicon reacted when put under very specific conditions.
