AT&T Samsung Galaxy S II benchmark tests
With the GSM version of the Samsung Galaxy S II, we were introduced to a high flying smartphone that managed to put up some astronomical benchmark results – thus, catapulting it to the stratosphere as being one of the fastest smartphones on the market. Well, now it’s AT&T’s turn to show what its version of the Samsung Galaxy S II is capable of achieving.

In the short time playing around with the handset, it exhibits plenty of smooth and fluid executions with most tasks – like navigating around its homescreen and running apps. Of course, we’re not all that surprised to see it flawlessly radiating some tight responsiveness when navigating its homescreen, but our eyes perk up when the same response is evident when a live wallpaper is used. Generally, we tend to see a slight drop with performance with this, but it’s very remarkable to see the AT&T Samsung Galaxy S II running so eloquently still.

Quadrant benchmark results



Starting off with the Quadrant benchmark, the handset is able to whip up scores well into the 3,000 mark – but we’re blown away by the 3,733 score we’re able to get! Amazingly, that literally blows away the competition in the dust as others struggle to even top the 2,000 mark of late. Moving on, we’re given a total score of 5,773 with the AnTutu benchmark app, which is well in line to the figures obtained by the original handset. Nevertheless, it goes to show that AT&T’s version is still one beastly phone under the hood.

Indeed it can be regarded as being the king of the hill right now, especially when its dual-core 1.2GHz Exynos processor with 1GB of RAM is able to deliver such joy.  Still, we’ll be testing the handset further to see what kind of performance it’s able to provide us in the long term – though, we’re mightily impressed so far!

Why must everyone compare them? It's so pointless...

I for one have had both an iPhone and my current Droid X and they were/are both very fine phones. Especially since they are running different OS's it's purely subjective. To each his own I say.

With that said I want an Exynos version on Verizon please NO OMAP4!

Simple. These android bashers, secretly has buyers remorse, and really want an android. They have to convince themselves they made the right decision. IF they had time to really like their own phone, they wouldn't have time to bash another phone.

Apple has nothing to do with this discussion but yet somehow Apple gets brought up. Ijs, for someone who hates Apple you sure brought them up quickly.

Great :-)) Looked forward to this phone all summer,
only to see my carrier, Verizon, drop the ball.
NOT HAPPY Verizon. Can you hear me now??

Verizon skipped the GS2 to get a similar, but possibly better spec'd phone called the Galaxy Nexus. Supposedly coming out in November.

And it's overclocked. I bet if you root and overclock the GSII, it'll blow your paltry G2X out of the water. Get a clue.

I have heard reports that a overclocked rooted SGS2 can get over 6500 scores in benchmarks. So that's great and all but still.

No point in overclocking it, its still a 1 hell of a speedy/freaky phone. . .

thats good but my rooted and overclocked epic blows your g2x with 5700+ on quadrant rooted and OC

thats because with the right rom you can really mess with quadrant benchmarks.

the only way to bench is stock to stock, anything else can be tampered with.

And if you root and overclock the GS2 it will blow the doors off your G2X. That is a very good phone you have, but not better than a GS2.

Instead of worrying about quadrant scores. Google needs to worry about making the Android platform more cohesive, less buggy, less DEPENDENT on dual and quad core processors.

I don't think Google cares about the quadrant scores. Android phone manufacturers are putting dual-cores in their phones, because that is the current trend (Apple's A5 is a dual-core).

Google is doing a great job fixing bugs and making their OS more cohesive, it's the carriers that are messing things up.

Ummm, what? Maybe they should eliminate widgets and multi-tasking, maybe make the home screen a continuous file manager. Oh, wait, Apple would sue them for copying their bland experience. Get over yourself, the software pushes the hardware. The iPad2 got a dual core processor and the iPhone 5 is slated to get the same thing. It is the direction technology is taking. Maybe Apple should focus on being less dependent on multi-core processors...

It would be funny if Samsung knows that's the date they're dropping the iPhone 5 and is tryna square up on'em.

I think he's refering to the quadrant scores and not the release date, although that does seem like forever from now :-( I two am anxiously waiting for some type of performance review of the tmo gs2. Hell, even a simple hands on video would make my day

LMAO. Go over to XDA in the Epic 4g Touch forums. A guy got overclocked to 1.6ghz, and got a benchmark test over 7400. Your G2X doesn't have s**t on the GSII.

Seriously!! Is someone getting paid the the amount of articles they write? We KNOW it's fast. How about writing an article on water being wet as well.

My stock Atrix is getting around 2650 in Quadrant and 4713 on AnTuTu. That's not far off considering it's a 1GHz dual core compared to 1.2GHz on the Samsung. I'll have to root and OC a bit to find out what it can hit.
