After the Geekbench 2 score for the new Samsung Galaxy S 4 was posted on YouTube, John Poole of Primate Labs has charted the Geekbench 2 scores for the Samsung Galaxy S4 along with several Android phones, the iPhone 5, LG Nexus 4, HTC One and the BlackBerry Z10.
So those that covet the Galaxy S 4 will be happy to know that Samsung’s new handset easily beats its rival Apple’s iPhone 5 LG Nexus 4, HTC One, BlackBerry Z10 and quad-core chip in the Galaxy S III. Per Geekbench score comparison chart, the HTC One has a score of 2687, ahead of the LG Nexus 4, which peaks at 2040, the Galaxy S3 at 1717 and iPhone 5 at 1596.
The Samsung Galaxy S 4 is thus twice as fast as the Samsung Galaxy S 3. That’s an incredible feat by the Korean giant achieved within a year. The Samsung Galaxy S 4 has toppled its rival Apple and is twice as fast as the Apple iPhone 5. No smartphone has crossed the 3000 milestone, which means the Qualcomm Snapdragon 600 SoC chip @1.9 GHz (4 cores) inside the Galaxy S 4 packs quite a punch.
It is important to note that this Geekbench score was achieved on Samsung Galaxy S 4 with the Qualcomm Snapdragon 600 SoC only and not with the new Exynos 5 Octa SoC. Obviously, the result will differ when Geekbench score is calculated for other S4 variant.
Those who are unaware, Geekbench are an array of benchmark tests designed to measure processor and memory performances of your smartphone. But these benchmark scores aren’t always indicative of a device’s overall user experience.
