Samsung Galaxy S4 benchmarks blows iPhone 5 out of the water

The Galaxy S4 is hot. Really hot. As soon as this phone was announced, it was clear that the Galaxy S4′s specs were something else. Rocking the 5 inch Super AMOLED screen, 13MP camera and the Qaulcomm Snapdragon processor, clocked at 1.9GHz, the Samsung Galaxy S4 has been put through its paces by Primate Labs, who have analyzed the phone’s Geekbench 2 scores. The results are totally astonishing, but at the same time, not surprising at all…

Samsung Galaxy S4… #winning

As you can see, the S4 is 2 times faster than the iPhone 5, and almost twice as fast as the Galaxy S3, a testament to the phenomenal difference in the two devices. Obviously, benchmark tests don’t fully replicate day to day usage in the real world, but even so, the Samsung Galaxy S4 has proved itself the new standard of powerhouse smartphone design. Will you be buying it? Leave your comments below!

    Perspective: s4 has dbl the number of cores with each core 600mhz faster and they could ONLY double the ip5 score? This is what you are happy about? Samsung needs to step up as the Google X phone is coming.

    Never ever will I buy a Samsucks product!!

    Galaxy s 4 looks good and have new features but it came almost a year after iphone 5 and if you calculate everything iphone 5 will still b in the top 5 in..first place or second (people choice) wich in my point of view iphone is better. Or there is something about iphone that people love (that i would say is “how easy to use) :-)

  • axirume

    Cant wait….. I can alreaddy see the apple team looking to see what they have to change in the new iphone.  So for all you Samsung hatters pick one up and just give it a try. You know you want to. . All the cool ppl are doing it .. apple is good but samsung+android is better.

  • jabombardier

    Powerful processors are necessary these days, but unless you are a need obsessed with processor numbers, what is the point when a benchmark at the end of the day will not guarantee a smooth and unfettered usability?

  • jabombardier

    @axirume I wish I could agree with you but Samsung and android pushed me into iOS.

  • Fred LA

    Geekbench is useless. Everyone knows iPhone 5 is faster than the S3 in. Real life application so this is just a CPU testing that doesn’t mean anything. Of course the S4 screams but factor in the screen and android and you will bring it back down to earth. It may be the fastest kid on the block but no phone stays on top for long.

  • lowekey

    Take into consideration apple couldn’t even surpass the gs3 with their iphone 5..

  • Jrcg88

    Totally agree with you @Fred LA

  • lowekey

    @Jrcg88 The iphone 5 came out barely 6 months ago, not almost a year. There are other phones that surpass the iphone 5, and I’m not only talking processor, but battery life, screen resolution, and NFC (near field communication, touch phones to send things) (camera’s are about equal).

    @lowekey
    Wrong. Geek bench measures CPU. Ever heard of sun spider, browsermarK, GLbenchmark, etc…?
    Software, GPU, And the memory management firmware is what determines true users speed and the iPhone 5 was usually smoother than S3 in real life Application.

    @jabombardier I’m sorry, but we Android users simply don’t have any fuck to give except apples.

  • jabombardier

    @hilo2006 you aren’t making sense.

  • FesteringKadaver

    @Fred LA
    Yup, no smart phone stays on top for long. Especially since note 3 is just over the horizon.

  • FesteringKadaver

    @jabombardier
    ios pushed me into android. I always found the os to be reliable, but awfully boring and looking outdated.

  • FesteringKadaver

    @Fred LA
    The iphone only seems fast because ios doesn’t have much going on. It’s a very basic os with nothing but an app drawer. Android on the other hand, has to deal with widgets, live wallpapers and such. When you jailbreak an iphone to get it to do some of the things android does, it starts to become sluggish. And that’s one of the reasons apple is trying so desperately to stop people from jailbreaking.

  • jabombardier

    @FesteringKadaver I am really trying to understand the boring look of iOS. Is it because it is a row of apps? Is it just the color palatte? Because coming from android, I don’t see how iOS is boring. I do spot the inability to do certain things.

  • Lestgiord

    Raw power is not as good as OS optimization. Remember palmOS vs. WIndows Mobile. With less CPU power, palms used to run faster and smoother than windows mobile devices. User experience overall was better (I got to have both). But if Apple falls asleep in OS development and stops driving evolution as it used to, they could end up walking the same path Palm did.

  • FesteringKadaver

    @jabombardier
    Maybe it just doesn’t seem boring to you. And if not, that’s ok. But for myself, I found it to be boring archaic to a certain degree. And droid with it’s widgets just put everything right there in front of you. I have also discovered some live wallpapers that are just nice to look at, but are actually useful. Show battery percentage as well as having a working compass among other things. Android is just more interesting, but also a lot of fun. I hated having to jailbreak just to get some of the features that are already on android without jailbreaking or anything. But that’s just my opinion.

    Result was good until it showed gs3 higher score then ip5 . Useless test . Have personally tested both . Ip5 was much smoother then gs3 with real time use . Galaxy note2 though is a beast . Very smooth and fast . Which I currently own .
    My problem with now using android for 2 months is app support is far better for iOS . Not number of apps . But the quality and support from developers . I switched as I needed a larger screen . Wanted an iPad mini but apple screwd that with poor resolution and low ran . If apple wants to compete in near future . Have to stop dwelling on stock pileing so much money . As of now I would reccomend . Gs4 gn2 and htc one till apple gets there act together.

  • jabombardier

    @FesteringKadaver yeah I remember those things. They were cool. You will enjoy that. But seriously the performance of android outweighed the customizability and it was bad for me. It is wonderful though.

  • FesteringKadaver

    @jabombardier
    Got a note 2 at the moment, and performance is as good as can be. I don’t see any performance issues with it. And it’s the best performing device that I’ve owned so far.

  • jabombardier

    @FesteringKadaver my co-workers are having the same experience as you with the GN2. I had a GS2 and everything went south after the update to 4.0

    Duh! Buying it? Really? Give me a break!
