The performance of the Samsung Galaxy S4 is one of the advantages of this terminal, which will be sold with two different processor configurations (Qualcomm Snapdragon 600 quad – core, and Samsung Exynos 5 Octa octo – core) and already begin to show some of the results of the performance of these models.
In the version with the Samsung Galaxy S4 with the Qualcomm Snapdragon 600 tests have been carried out with the Geekbench 2 benchmark It can also run on the iPhone 5, and the results seem to be conclusive: the new smartphone from Samsung is twice as powerful than the Apple. At least on paper.
Android Authority carried out these tests with model based on quad processor S4 – core (more powerful, although somewhat less energetically efficient in theory), and have also included the HTC One, which also integrates a Snapdragon 600 but 1.7 GHz instead of 1.9 GHz as it is the case with the S4. HTC also analyzed model is based on Android 4.1.2, while the S4 is based on Android 4.2.2, which might also affect those final results.
In the comparison have also paid attention to the performance of the Samsung Galaxy S III, who already has a year of life but which nevertheless exceeded slightly to the iPhone 5, released a few months ago. The BlackBerry Z10, much more recent, is overshadowed in this section and the Nexus 4 It has also been included in this study behaves in a remarkable way and shows that it is still a very competitive terminal.
Despite all this, it should be noted that these results simply give clues of the processing capabilities of the terminals: his performance in the real world may vary considerably and there come into play very relevant factors such as the Android version and customizations of the manufacturers, or applications and the burden that we have in the terminal at all times.
