Galaxy S6 Edge multi-core Geekbench score crushes everything, including the iPad Air 2
The Galaxy S6 Edge keeps on leaking like a rusty faucet. After its ultra low SAR radiation ratings that popped up on Samsung's website by mistake yesterday, and its user manuals, today the handset, codenamed SM-925, appeared with all of its specs on AnTuTu for the umpteenth time.

Well, if you didn't believe that 60, 000+ score it got on the AnTuTu benchmark, perhaps this next leak will convince you that we might be looking at the most powerful handset on the market when the S6 lands. Its octa-core Exynos 7420 chipset managed to crush it with 1,492 points in the single-core, and 5,077 points in the multi-core test. To put things in perspective, this multi-core result is way higher than any other mobile device at the moment, including the iPad Air 2, the reigning champ, which scores 4,532. 

The single-core performance gives way only to the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus, or the Google Nexus 9 tablet with its industrial strength Tegra K1 processor, but for phone purposes - well, it is very unlikely that the S6 will meet a task it can't crunch for the foreseeable future with these scores. Let's see if it will be strong enough to power TouchWiz without hiccups, though Samsung is rumored to go with a complete overhaul of the interface part, too.

They have had great battery life with their phones. The Note 3, and 4 have incredible battery life. Besides you can also get replacement batteries as well for their devices. Carry another battery around, just in case you need it.

No, the quad cores were bearing it, too.

First ,the CPU of the ipad air 2 has 3 cores, not two as you said.
Secondly, how can you compare the number of cores beteen two totally different IT architectures. It does not make any sense !!!
But because you know nothing about micro electronics , I forgive you :-)

This is not using 64-bit AArch64. Check the page again, it's using AArch32. This means cryptographic tests like AES, SHA will not get the proper numbers. I am sure if they used the 64bit version AArch, the numbers will be around 8-10% more.

By the time it ships in months, expect 10-15% increase in scores due to optimization.

UPSM + a bigger battery + more efficient display + Exynos 7 = pretty damn good battery life. Can't wait for what Samsung brings in March/April.

Exynos 7420 is built on 14nm process, it'll be very efficient.

Crushes or crashes?

I am pretty sure it is crushes. The word crashes has been associated a lot with Apple products after their iOS6 was released.

If android has been accused of crashing, the diehard android has to explain to you, how iOS is crashing, even more, even worse and how it's actually getting worse.... No matter what.

Btw iOS 6 runs fine on an iPhone 3GS.

Not sure I understand,

Why would Apple waste money making something more stable if its already stable?

Please explain?

Because there is still room for improvements and Apple's mantra is "better".

On iPod touch 4 ios 6 was laggy as hell (1 core, 256mb ram). But never, ever crashed for me. iOS 8 on 4S is buggy but not like on Z3 Compact when once in a while after unlocking screen I was welcomed with "play services stopped working" prompt. How nice.

And the 4S is literally 4 times less powerful. 2 years older. Still getting updates. And less buggy than the vaunted Z3 Compact.

Yep! But do not install nothing more than ios system. Try do some nwt browsing, browsing inside AppStore or even open FB app. You will throw your 3GS to the wall. I know it because half a year ago the battery of my old 3GS explode sitting from some time shelved.

Crashes or Crushes iOS 8.999999 on an already weak dual core for multicore processing scores on A8 in a iCopySamsung 6.... means they're destroying either way! ;-P

Multicore scoring has just scored 5486 on Geekbench. That's double iPhone 6 score on multicore testing it now supporting full HSA integration of heterogeneous computing platform API's to go with that? iPhone 6 and 6Plus is already doomed! lol..... mwahahaha....
