Samsung Galaxy S4 – Verizon, AT&T, Sprint and T-Mobile Models: Second To None ?
The Samsung Galaxy S4 shapes up to be one of the most impressive smartphones of the year and it seems that the Korean manufacturer is hell-bent on delivering a device worthy of the “smartphone of the year” title.
However, in order to achieve this feat, the manufacturer needs to put a lot of work into its product and the S4 seems to have a lot of potential. It looks good enough (although the HTC One is arguably a better looking device), it comes with a lot of interesting software features, and by the looks of it, the S4 packs quite a punch!
Samsung Galaxy S4 vs The Competition
Last week we had the chance to take a look at how well the Samsung Galaxy S4 performs in the Geekbench 2 benckmark. Today we continue to be amazed by how powerful this beast is, as AnTuTu benchmark scores have surfaced on the web, showcasing the handset’s processing power.
Now, keep in mind that the unit that has been tested is the Snapdragon 600 model, so it’s the one that you’ll have the chance to buy in the US via Verizon, AT&T, Sprint, T-Mobile and a handful of other regional carriers.
As for the results, long story short, the Galaxy S4 managed to score 21,089 points, which pretty much makes this particular gadget a record holder.
To give you an idea on how powerful this beast is, the Qualcomm-powered Galaxy S3 scores an average of 16.301, the quad-core Exynos-powered Samsung Galaxy Note 2 has yielded an average score of 17.531 while the LG Nexus 4 managed to score 18,096 points, thanks to its quad-core Snapdragon S4 Pro chip.
We should also note that it was to be expected for the Galaxy S4 to perform better than the HTC One, despite the fact that both handsets are being powered by a Snapdragon 600 chip. The reason for this is because the CPU found in the SGS4 is clocked at 1.9 GHz, whereas HTC One’s Snapdragon 600 processor runs at a lower frequency (1.7 GHz).
Lastly, what’s even more interesting is that the Exynos 5 Octa CPU is expected to outperform the Snapdragon 600, so this basically isn’t the best the SGS4 has to offer.
Although we know that benchmark results are not telling the whole story, the SGS4 really is an impressive device when it comes down to synthetic results.
