Samsung Galaxy S4 Outclasses Every Competing Model In Benchmark Test
With so many high end smartphone models on the market, it can be hard to choose which device is right for you. This year, we have seen a number of impressive models hit the market, such as the Sony Xperia Z, HTC One and of course the Samsung Galaxy S4, with each new model boasting of increasing levels of processing power.
While all of these devices have their own benefits over competing models, Phones Review has recently reported on a benchmark test carried out among seven of the top smartphone models on the market. The test, which was carried out by consumer advice publication ‘Which?’ tested the performance of the devices using the Geekbench 2 benchmarking application to see which handset offers the best processing power.
It may not come as a surprise to learn that the Samsung Galaxy S4 came out in first position, thanks to its 1.9 GHz quad-core processor. At the other end of the scale, Apple’s popular iPhone 5 model came in last place, on account of its comparatively low spec 1.2 GHz dual-core processor. Following the Galaxy S4, was the HTC One in second position, Sony Xperia Z in third, Google Nexus 4 in fourth place, Samsung Galaxy Note 2 in fifth place and the Blackberry Z10 in sixth position.
The test ranked the performance of each smartphone based on memory and performance, and the Samsung Galaxy S4 won by a considerable margin over the HTC One in second place. Samsung’s flagship model scored 3188, while the HTC One achieved score of 2798. In comparison, the Apple iPhone 5 only managed to achieve a score of 1664.
While this test clearly demonstrates that the Samsung Galaxy S4 is miles ahead of its competitors in terms of processing power, consumers are unlikely to notice much of a difference in real world usage between the speed of the Galaxy S4 and the Apple iPhone 5. However, on paper this certainly proves that the Samsung Galaxy S4 is currently the most powerful device on the market.
