Exynos 7420 (Galaxy S6) vs Snapdragon 810 (HTC One M9) vs Apple A8 (iPhone 6) benchmark scores

Exynos 7420 (Galaxy S6) vs Snapdragon 810 (HTC One M9) vs Apple A8 (iPhone 6) benchmark scores
MWC is winding down, and with it everybody can take a closer look at the nitty-gritty details of the flagships announced. A Galaxy S6 model has been tested on the cross-platform GeekBench, pitted against Qualcomm's finest Snapdragon 810 in the new HTC One M9, and Apple's top A8 dog in the iPhone 6.

Needless to say, the record multicore scores of the Galaxy S6 are due to the octa-core Exynos 7420 chipset, which puts the new Samsung flagship at the top of the mobile game, when the cores are firing on all cylinders. When it comes to the more useful single-core performance, though, it's Apple's A8 that took the helm of the trio with the whopping 1626 points, then the Galaxy S6 with 1443 points, followed by the Snapdragon 810 with 1186. 

Check out the results below, and don't worry, each of the three best mobile chipsets at the moment is more than powerful enough to chew any app or game thrown at them without a hitch, and those scores are basically just for geek bragging rights now.

Samsung really did a good job this time , i hope they dont use Snapdragon at all this time.

Whats amazing is that Galaxy S6 Edge scores 70k in Antutu and a whoping 21k score in 3D with 2k display more than any smartphone (M9 with 1080p).

They must have designed that Exynos CPU in some way that resolution dosent affect its 3d performance as much.

Well, they ditched microSD but they make a special dual sim edition
for Philipines, don't they? http://tinyurl.com/ou52m7s
Why? Because they favor carriers more than us.
No microSD means more carrier data usage.
Thus S6 is more attractive to carriers.

They basically say to carriers:
"I have a money sucker for you, better than the iPhone!"
The CEO said in his speech addressing to the carriers:
"our customers will be ready when you are".
He also said "We put our customers first, (...) we listen"
Who are their customers and who did they listened?

Do it like the Appole, Samy

Yes lets spam the interwebs "no SD" slot :D, most of the people dont care , they would rather have a killer phone than bulky phone with sdcard and nothing to show for . Later.

So its okay when HTC did it with M7:

M7:http://www.gsmarena.com/htc_one-5313.php

M7 (dual sim):http://www.gsmarena.com/htc_one_dual_sim-5498.php

But its cool to troll for lack of MicroSd slot on a SoC article, right ?

Can you tell me what's the point of record breaking benchmark if the phone still stutter.?The S6 still drop frames occasionally as anandtech pointed out in their hands on of S6. It seems even The superfast processor build on Superior 14nm and Ultra fast SSD class memory card can't cure the stuttering performance of S6. Its a shame really. Good luck Samsung because with the still mediocre looks of S6 and stuttering performance you're gonna need it fighting against Apple iPhones and Chinese Xiaomi phones.

MBQ, Pocketnow, AA this guys said nothing about frame drops and said that it's super smooth with no more lag.

I am saying releasing dual sim version in asian countries is not really a breaking news. All other OEMs do that you're simply drawing unnecessary conclusion here. Besides how sure are you that a Sim card slot can just as easily be replaced with MicroSd slot ?

Every company work to make profit but sadly you guys forget when Samsung offers $500 worth of free goodies and free storage on Dropbox !

Not the point though. The point is that Sam makes a dual sim easily and not with an sd. Microsoft just gave 200GB free space

Well, by your logic, I can see why the carriers advertise for iPhones a lot. I mean dude they are the ones selling the phone, so....

Well, I'm justing stating what I read. Samsung is far from good when it comes to Software optimization. Its a shame that with Such a high end hardware there is still stutter. They remove all the bloatware and still it still drop frame. They still need to work on their software.
Plus the touchwiz looks the same, They remove the bloatware but the looks of touchwiz looks the same as ever.

All Android phones stutters from time to time. Even the Nexus 6 w/c supposedly the purest android you can buy still lag. The S6 will of course will not be immune to stuttering but lags and overall responsiveness is so much better now based on what I see on hands-on videos. Give me one android phone that doesn't stutter then I'll give you 1 million dollars.

Please provide a link to this Anandtech article, since I can't find a single article on Anandtech about the S6 that describes any stutter issues

Maybe its just the way to make the dust-garhering S5 make sold. Knowing Samsung, they will release S6 with microSD slot after people who bought enough S6 handsets.

Quote: " Areas like the multitasking interface were noticeably faster to open and close, but there were still some scenarios where I saw some slight frame drops which is likely due to the pre-release software."
Hardly indication this thing lags and stutters. You're making a mountain out of a molehill. Only on the final version and with intensive testing, you can tell if this device is any good. Even on the iPhone 6+ there are these minor stutters, especially in the beginning.

I know that. But my point is this kind of performance benchmark is almost useless in real life especially when the record breaking high performance mark doesn't translate into stutters free experiance. As far as I know only HTC and Xiamoi phones give practically lag and shutters free experience in the android world.

I didn't say S6 lags and when I said stuttering I also use the word "occasionally". My point still stand. This recording breaking benchmark means nothing if this score fails to translate into buttery smooth performance. HTC and Xiaomi able to reach the smooth performance with less powerful hardware but for samsung it takes the highest end hardware to achieve a practically lag and stutter free performance. This shows how inefficient Samsung is at optimizing software.

So you're saying Samsung removed the memory slot primarily to help sell the S5? That's one of the dumbest things I've heard in a while.

There is a possibility that S6 variants and the Note 5 will still have an SD slot. But if the S6 is as profitable as Samsung thinks it's going to be, I don't see why they would (or should) consider a microSD slot at all.

even my iphone 6 lag and it was praised for its no lag experience.
i dont even want to say how many times it took to bring the bottom toggle tray.

every phone lags. try htc and xiaomi it will lag at least once. same goe to samsung. from all the videos i see i saw 1 lag and it was due to the magazine ui.

When they test the end product with the final software, you can judge if this device stutters (occasionally) or not. Also keep in mind it's pushing quite the pixels. Ofcourse it's their own choice to go for QHD instead of FHD.

No, you're stating part off what you read, in order to push your agenda. What Anandtech said was the phone was extremely smooth, fluid and responsive, but they did notice rare, slight frame drops probably due to prefinal software.

But since you're so worried about frame drops, why don't you address the frame drops that Ars Technica reported on the iPhone 6+?
