First Samsung Galaxy Note 3 GFXBench, AnTuTu and Vellamo benchmark results


Once again, Hi! from Berlin, where IFA 2013 is taking place with full force, and boy what a show it is! We've already seen the Xperia Z1 Honami, the Galaxy Gear smartwatch, and of course - the Galaxy Note 3 phablet. If that's not an exciting event, we don't know what is!

Speaking of the Samsung Galaxy Note 3, we've already posted tons of stuff, but one thing that we didn't have so far were some initial benchmark results. Well, that gap is filled now, as we've taken the opportunity to run GFXBench, AnTuTu and Vellamo on Samsung's new phablet. Do you want a teaser? Yes, the device is an absolute monster! Be sure to watch the video above to be shocked by the staggering figures that the Galaxy Note 3 achieves in terms of synthetic benchmarks. Of course, don't forget that this here isn't a retail unit, so results may be slightly different when it hits the market. And, above all, don't forget the impressive benchmark scores don't always translate into a great user experience!

Please note that the benchmark results of the Galaxy Note 3 and Xperia Z1 aren't final, because the tests have been run on non-retail units. Final results may be slightly different.

It has 3gb ram, and this is an obvious result..

You seem a little jealous. It's okay though. There's always next year for OEMs to catch up.

Why would he/she be jealous? You sound stupid! If you're not profiting off of android, why do you care?

Do you know how bad PunyPoop trolls on this site? Enough for me to troll back. That says a lot considering I don't do it often.

Never run a benchmark on a phone which is charging. Numbers will definitely be low.

Always good to reboot the phone once before running benchmarks, cleans up the memory.

cheers!

It depends on what units you meant by "3..2..1.."

If you meant hours, then there's still plenty of time. If you meant seconds, then he's right.

There's NO place for joking here, PapaSmurf.

Why? The benchmarks are nothing special. Same scores as every other flagship being released.

My question is: how does it compare with iPhone 5 on the same benchmarks; iPhone 5 doesn't even show up, iCan't see it - gosh, does it even chart with the rest?? I can see the HTC One in the #2 spot.

i'm sure that samsung cannot wait to trumpet that the note 3 is faster than a year old phone

do i need to write /sarcasm or did you pick up on it? i'm not sure how quick you are after posting something like that

The A6 still beats pretty much any phone on the market core for core. Even running at 1.3ghz. Only the Snapdragon 800 trumps it....at over 2ghz.

Nah... Exynos 5420 with A15 cores at 1.9ghz defeats everything else ,even the s800

A6 was also manufactured by Samsung which is designed by ARM except that Apple has done some customisation on it. At same clockspeed, Exynos 5410 or 5420 marginally beats the A6 and smokes the Snapdragon 800 miles away.

Phablets are 10%(around that) of all smartphones. They are not meant for majority of people cause they are too big. It cant be the best device if its not suitable for majority of people. If you said S4, HTC ONE, Z1, or something similar I would say ok.

It can absolutely be the best device for anyone at any given time because that's a matter of personal preference.

Besides, what car would you say is better: a Ferrari or a Toyota Civic? Or what food is better? Filet mignon or a McNugget?

Just because something isn't marketed to the majority of people doesn't mean it's not "better."

+1 (to Smurf) for expressing his opinion, which can be an EXTREMELY dangerous thing to do on this website.

It's more like a semi truck vs a car. Both can go 60 miles an hour but one is much bigger and harder to drive than the other.

By next year, or 2 years from now. Smartphone size in width and diameter will be near, or the exact same as the phablets of today; most likely to accommodate an increase in resolution once again. So what you say today, you may end up eating tomorrow.

That's a silly assumption. There will be a large continuing demand for compact devices.

The Z1 is in the category of phablet size.

Wait, what? So if he/she don't get this phone, that means he/she hate Samsung? No offense but your comment doesn't make any sense. Yes, the Galaxy Note 3 is a beast, I like it as well, but that doesn't mean I should get it.

i said if you don't get it because you hate samsung. That means you like the device but don't want it because of hate. That's what i mean.

While you have it in your hand do you have anyway of determining the subpixel matrix? I'm really curious about whether it's the same diamond subpixel layout as the GSIV.

posted on 06 Sep 2013, 13:18

21. Commentator (Posts: 2469; Member since: 16 Aug 2011)


Android Beat states in their review that it uses the same sub-pixel arrangement as the S4. I'm not sure how they know that, as they didn't provide any pictures, or even sources. However, I'd think that Samsung would make a big deal if they switched to a traditional RGB arrangement.

Thanks. I read that article too, but it seems fishy to me. Arstechnica said it wasn't pentile, so who knows?

Is everyone legitimately blind? It barely beat the HTC One how is that beast? Also hope you realize the G2 review unit got 29k +. I hope this has been a learning experience for all of you people who know nothing lol

Copy and pasted from the other benchmark article

"The LG G2, Sony Xperia Z Ultra, Galaxy Note 3, and Galaxy S4 LTE A all use the same chipset, and in theory, get the same scores. However, there's a few scenarios that impact the final result.

- Whether or not the phone is hitting a thermal throttle roof (this can be bypassed artificially by storing the phone in a very cold space)
- How well optimized the software of a device is to its hardware
- Frequency output caps placed by the manufacturer. (Can be overcome by rooting and OC'ing the CPU/GPU)"

All these Snapdragon 800 devices can achieve over 35,000 on AnTuTu.

Wow, so much hate. What is it with fanboys? Is it so hard to accept when a better product arrives? This happens every 6 months or so anyway. And that doesn't mean your phone is crap, if you like it and are happy with it then good for you! Still, that doesn't change the fact that this is right now the baddest boy in town. Apple is soon to announce its new devices, will they perform as good or even better? Perhaps! And if that happens there won't be any denying it!
As of today, September 7th, this is the king of the hill in despite of anyone's opinion, potential market, etc.

It's ok i suppose i won't argue seeing as this is a article about the Note. Even though we all know realistically the G2 is better XP

Phonearena you messed up bad with the Antutu Benchmarks... The Galaxy S4 scores you posted were from the 3.xx old version of Antutu. My i9505 Galaxy S4 (Quad Core Version) Gets 28000 in antutu with the new 4.0 update. Please update and fix accordingly
