Benchmark comparison: Galaxy S4 vs Galaxy S III vs Note 2 vs Optimus G Pro vs Nexus 4 vs HTC One

0. phoneArena 04 Apr 2013, 09:37 posted on

What could be more exciting than a benchmark comparison starring six of the best smartphones in the world?! Well, a lot of things, probably... but NOT when one of these smartphones is the one and only Galaxy S4! It's not really a secret that the GS4 is an amazing performer when it comes to benchmarks, but hey, it never hurts to give some perspective to its scores by comparing it to more and more Android smartphones. That's exactly what we've done here, so behold – the Galaxy S4 torches those benchmarks alongside the GS III, Note 2, Optimus G Pro, Nexus 4, and its biggest rival, the HTC One...

True and I think gs4 will perform much more better than other competitors(HTC one) despite of these competitive benchmarks with HTC..

I expect so... My doubt is that with gazillion of sensors and a 1080p display which consumes the battery juice 8 times faster than other LCD displays while showing white colors, will it last long enough for a day? ... lets hope it performs well...

You can see the battery review of s4 on gsmarena.. Its best compared to all.. But HTC one wins in Web browsing category by small margin..

they set the display of the both phones to maximum brightness while running web browsing tests. If you see the display review of s4 on gsmarena, you will know that 70% of brightness level of HTC One equals the 100% brightness of S4. That's an unfair advantage given to galaxy s4 over HTC One. So, In real world usage the battery performance of HTC one will be so much better!!

Okay.. I didn't think that way though.. I got your point but I won't judge until I check both by myself..your point is creditable :).. But still carrying an extra battery for s4 may not be much heavy for many users..

Not to mention its expandable memory storage, latest jelly bean, etc.. S4 is a great device... My point was it should not only be judged by some artificial benchmarks..

I broke it down for you guys, trying to be as unbiased as possible.

Egypt T-Rex QS AnTuTu HTML5 Metal ISE Graphics Physics Total
S4 5 5 6 5 4 5 5 5 3 43
S3 1 1 1 1 2 1 3 3 3 16
Note 2 2 3 3 3 3 4 3 5 28
G Pro 3 3 4 4 6 4 3 4 4 35
N4 6 6 2 2 1 2 6 6 6 37
One 4 4 5 6 5 6 5 5 3 43

The S4 and the HTC One are tied with 43 points.
The Nexus 4 and the Optimus G Pro are similar, with the Nexus 4 edging out by 2 points.
The Note finishes 5th with 28 points.
The S3 comes last with 16 points.

haha you can't read my comment i am talking about processor
no matter what the device S800 or TEGRA 4 is better than Exynos 5 octa

I am talking about the processor.. Sammy will definitely keep exynos octa clocked in such a way in note 3 that will again be on the top.. I don't think s800 or tegra 4 will beat the upgraded version of exynos 5octa that would be on note 3 but I think apple's a7 would be great.. By that time A7 and note 3's octa would always be on hot news..

clocked in such a way hmm...
Please open your eyes and accept the reality!!!
On antutu
Exynos 5 octa clocked at 1.8 GHz scored 27000+
Tegra 4 with max clock speed 1.9 GHz is scored 36000+
just imagine how fast if Tegra 4 have higher clock speed
the only hot news is when S800 or Tegra 4 beat samsung 8 core

I dont have a HTC one to enjoy, and i dont support htc One you $tup!d troll. If you ask any tech nerd they will tell you that a under clocked single core Windows phone(with a poor benchmark score of course) will perform so much smoother than a higher clocker dual core android counterparts. Its all about optimization now...

I prefer s4 because I believe that Samsung has optimized it very well.. And I doubt HTC one in this department.. But who knows things can be opposite than what I feel..

This is just a gross result, please ask pa to trim away all the ui in every phone and make it stock android and see, galaxy s4 for sure will crush HTC one and nexus 4!!!

The S4 in the benchmark is running the same processor as the HTC One. If we are to put stock Android on it... I'm sure the performance will be roughly the same, S4 probably wins by a bit due to higher clock. I probably won't say the same if the S4 was the 8 core version, but then again, there has been rumors/facts that not all 8 cores runs at once.

What made S4 really stand out this year from S3 is the software.

you have to look to all aspects before claiming that S4 is the king.

u smell more like a fanboy as what ive observed from ur past comments.. dealing with reviews and saying the different side of the results are more biased..
