First Galaxy S6 edge benchmarks show peak performance in AnTuTu and outrageous memory speeds!
Hello, friends! Are you having fun reading our comparisons of the Samsung Galaxy S6 and S6 edge against their Android and iOS rivals? We're sure having a blast throwing these scorching hot devices against each other. 

But, as the mighty Monty Python loves to say, it's time for something completely different! We got to run some benchmarks on Samsung's latest hardware, the Galaxy S6 edge, and we're ready to report some seriously impressive results! 

As you surely know at this point, the Galaxy S6 and S6 edge run on the same hardware platform, so these results should be valid for both devices. However, these are pre-release units we're handling here, so don't take the results as final - but merely as very promising!

69000 wow, just wow. Especially when compared to the Tegra X1's 75000 which is a car/tablet soc.

Yes and with final software I expect >70000. This phone is awesome!

to be exact, in the last 2 months. Since we didn't know what Qualcomm has done in the last 2 years.

Snapdragon 600 is just the minor upgrade version of S4Pro

Snapdragon 801 is just the speed-up version of 800 (and it's too hot)

They just released the newer 805 and 810 in the last 6 months, still based on 20nm :D

yeah i noticed that too, apps load up very quickly on the s6, mostly due to the new UFS storage and also faster DDR4 ram obviously and of course faster processor too.

as a apple fan aswell I hope the 6S adopts this storage, DDR4 is most certainly for sure for the 6S, and i also hope that they use Samsungs Low power Plus manufacturing at the end of the year which is Samsungs more refined 14nm finfet node (galaxy s6 right now is on low power energy) and low power plus is the more refined 14nm node which means even more power efficiency gains...the S6 edge looks really good though IMO i like it quite a bit more then the S6.

samsung made some great phones here though and single core score is quite impressive, single core score is very important and it delivers there aswell. good job samsung

THAT'S a great score!
For the battery though, that in 10 min is charging for 4 hours of battery life,
if for 36 hours (idk for 100%) it will need, let's say 1h30min.
I can charge my phone from 0-100% in 5 sec by swapping batteries
and use it right away. Without searching charging spot every 4 hours
or wall hugging

It takes half the time to charge a iphone 6 0-100 for the S6 to charge 0-100 they said in the presentation. So the charging time will be around 50 minutes to a hour.

+ The fact that if you want a new battery you have to spend time and extra money, go to the Samsung store and pay €60 for the battery + €50 for the work, exonerating the stupids that yell: "Yey Samsung, take my money!" Instead of buying it for €40 from an e-store + €6 for the shipping and replace it easily by yourself.

My Galaxy S5 needs 1h 22min to fully charge from 0%... considering the S6 has a slightly smaller battery and they said it will charge faster ... it will need less than a hour!

I believe 0 to 100 in less than 30 mins. We all know that DDR4 and battery technology will show up on all phones this year including the iPhone's.

No, charging a battery is a non linear process. The first 50% happens very quickly compared to the other half. Also, you might be able to physically swap batteries in 5 seconds but you need to stop what you were doing, shutdown, remove cover, replace battery and cover and boot your phone back up... quite a bit more than 5 seconds.

After all there are power banks all over. Even with removable batterings, I still find it a lot easier using power bank to recharge my phone.

It's not easier, it still takes an hour plus to go from zero to full, whereas in under a minute you can do it with a spare battery.

Stop,saying about the crap sd card it as 100gb of free cloud, move what you do not need to this on your pc, it will auto show up within sec on your phone, ha it be faster, the sd card is that slow to link it to the bord mem contorler will lag out the phone how many more time do I have to say it, any phone maker that will move to the new mem in samsung phone will remove the sd card, the sd card in phones is doa as soon as this happens or samsung will easy win all benchmarks on all phones for the next 10 years as it will crap up the speed of the mem contorler on the phone

Cloud storage is irrelevant with caped data plans. Not to mention areas of no coverage. I can play my entire music collection anywhere, regardless of signal or data left. Also quite a few movies/tv shows.

Where can I find 100GB of free cloud? And cloud will never be as fast as a memory card. Not to mention not all of us has an unlimited data plan.

54. cdm283813 (Posts: 310; Member since: 10 Jan 2015)


Exactly! Samsung was only taking action on the criticism it was hearing around the world. People wanted better materials and a better design over removable batteries and sd card. Otherwise the S5 would not be the disappointment it was. And it doesn't help how Android limits the way SD cards work.
As a person that bought a Note 2, 3 and 4 am I disappointed? Sure. But I love that S6 Edge so much. Samsung has eliminated 16GB and the phone can either charge super quick or take native wireless charging. The entire design is the best I've seen in any phone. And Samsung was so correct in ditching the Snapdragon. The S6 Edge is a true rebel for Samsung.

"the Galaxy S6 and S6 edge..." -PA
It's Galaxy S6 Edge. That's a capital E. Half of PA's articles are using a lower case E. Why?

34. baldilocks (Posts: 736; Member since: 14 Dec 2008)


Because if you actually WATCHED the Samsung unboxing event, they use a lower case e. So, it IS Samsung Galaxy S6 edge.

Where are the M9 benchmarks ... can't wait to see the difference! Even though we've already seen the LG G Flex 2 throttle like hell

66. miket1737 (Posts: 2350; Member since: 17 Mar 2013)


810 at 1080p resolution might be able to outperform the exynos at quad hd resolution though, at least on the GPU performance side, M9 is metal chasis which allows for a little more thermal headroom as well. not exactly sure on performance metrics of the gpu in the S6 and s6 edge but Adreno 430 at 1080p resolution vs the GPU in the s6 at quad hd might give the adreno 430 a edge but well see.

93. JumpinJackROMFlash (Posts: 423; Member since: 10 Dec 2014)


The Exynos doesn't need the thermal headroom while 810 definitely does as it will throttle after two minutes.

M9 scored ~57000 in antutu and ~1200/~3800 in geekbench...
S6 scored ~20% higher in antutu and ~35% higher in geekbench!

It's a shame that Exynos processor's stumble and fumble on script heavy pages. No more Galaxy S or Note 4 (Exynos) version for me, got the SD version and what a smooth experience. Not to mention better battery and it doesn't heat up like that Exynos.

Slightly better than the A8X. Not really impressed. Single core should on this processor should be more than 2000 on GB. Overall, we should expect similar numbers with the SnapDragon and A9 this year.

A8X is a tablet processor.
Compare this with A8 in the iPhone 6 and 6 plus.
