Apple fanboys, this might be a bad news, you might want to look away now. But for those Samsung lovers, we have a good news. The Geekbench 2 scores are in, and believe it or not, Samsung Galaxy S4 rushes past the iPhone in the speed test. Galaxy S4 is literally two times faster than the iPhone 5!
iPhone 5 Vs Galaxy S4 Speed Test
Samsung Galaxy S4 which was revealed to us only a couple of days ago, has finally been put to the test.
Geekbench 2 which determine the speed of the processors in the smartphone, gives us an overall idea on how fast the smartphone is going to be. Such as the overall speed, amount of lag, and operating different functions all at the same time. So it is a good measure on smartphones’ power.
Geekbench 2 was performed on the Samsung Galaxy S4 and results show something very interesting.
Although many of us know that Galaxy S4 was going to be much powerful than the iPhone 5 but nobody expected it to be the twice as fast! Yup folks, Samsung Galaxy S4 is twice as fast as the iPhone 5!
As you can see from the image above, Samsung Galaxy S IV with Qualcomm Snapdragon 600 processor which clocks at 1.9 GHz (4 cores) is twice as fast as the Apple’s iPhone 5 with A6 1.3 GHz processor.
The story doesn’t just stop here. The processor that was used for this Geekbench is the Snapdragon 600, which isn’t the one that is going to be in some Galaxy S4 devices for Asian and European countries. Samsung has announced that it will use the 8-core Exynos processor. Which is even faster than the Snapdragon processor!
That is some real raw power right there.
Before you dump your iPhone 5 for the Galaxy S4, I should mention here that Geekbench scores do not actually tell us the overall user-expereince for a specific smartphone. If Galaxy S4 scores more than iPhone 5, it does not mean it is going to give a much faster speed while actually using the device, it basically tells us the maximum speed the processor can operate at (raw power).
Many people do not actually prefer the Geekbench scores, but nonetheless, Samsung Galaxy S4 is much faster than the iPhone 5. Twice as fast!
