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.
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!
