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...

yeah xperia Sola has that first, but what it offers? almost nothing,, and that's innovation made by samsung, expanding new ideas from something not big before..

ok enuf for this premium thing, we all have our choices..

duhhh??? so innovation lies only with hardware?

innovation means bringing new ideas/thing/methods..

it seems u dont know anything abt technology and innovation.. and just proves many of ur arguments invalid in terms of solid evidences not just by mere innocent opinions

i am not saying innovations is only with hardware
he say samsung doing innovation to that hovering things i am not agree with that its just software update/upgrade the ideas is still the same ''The technology
makes it possible for the smartphone to detect a
finger up to 0.79 inches (20mm) above the screen''
since you saying i doesn't know anything about technology please show me that samsung doing some innovation with that hovering tech some patent will be great
with software update xperia sola can have the same feature like note 2 or S4
but without the screen technology you can't have that feature

at first xperia sola floating touch technology limited to live
wallpapers and the browser, but after ics update the entire user interface
could be controlled by hovering in combination with
floating touch. + glove mode
there is no innovation or new ideas by samsung they just simply copying that technology

Great point you made.
But I would always wonder why,
why so many dumb ppl buy cheap, lost cost material made product from a company who spends more money on marketing/ advertising.
Should think about spending your money wisely

nokia and sony use plastic but why they plastic is more durable than samsung plastic???
Exynos is not the best because S800 or Tegra 4 is better
everything from samsung is good if not over priced,
yes i hate samsung so bad thats why i have samsung galaxy S2,

you go ahead and get ONE. I just LOVE the plastic crap defense. is that ALL you have to hate on samsung about? like I've posted before, I seriously doubt someone is going to walk up to me, grab my HTC One and say "wow, your phone is built so freaking well". just like I doubt anyone would grab my S3 and say, "damn, this thing sucks, it's made out of plastic." it's a weak argument, they are BOTH awesome phones. stop hating on Samsung because overall, they WILL sell more phones, despite the plastic.

Exactly, as I actually prefer plastic because it will usually allow accsess to the battery, micro SD expantion, and is more durable in drops.

i have had three HTC phones, and love the way they look and feel, and that played a lot into why I bought them. however, in real world use, they have been a disappointment to me, especially with regards to battery life. I case my phones, and i drop mines once every blue moon, but the thunderbolt surely would have broken into several pieces without a case on one particular drop. I'm going "plastic" this coming July.

Reality is a bitter pill to swallow, Samsung will outsell HTC and GS4 will be rated one of the best in the market as it rightly deserves to be, based on the GSMArena review, I'd buy it if I could scrounge up enough cash, my Nexus 4 is awesome but camera is a disappointment, my SGS2 took better photos and video otherwise I'm a happy customer

Not sure if these results mean the S4 is better in regards to graphics or the HTC One.

Nope... today, all smartphones processors have evolved to an extent that graphics are ultra smooth (thanks to JB Pro.Butt. too). If we further increase the processing power we wont able to tell the difference and get diminishing return in terms of battery.

Since xperia Z and Nexus 4 runs on the same 1500 mhz snapdragon S4 pro processors, they left XZ out. Stop trolling about PhoneAreana

I'm sorry, but don't Optimus G Pro and HTC One power by the same Snapdragon 600 1.7GHZ?

Exactly what a stupid comment, this just shows how phonearena is biased about reviews and showing the actual possibility and potentiality of its competitors, accordingly when compared with the Xperia Z, and the S4, the S4 did slightly better, for instance the Antutu Benchmark had a rating of 21,000 vs S4's 23XXX and Quadrant's benchmark of 8873 vs S4's 12132, Considering these benchmarks I find to see the Z is comparasively fast!
