The Galaxy Note 4 barely showed itself on the horizen, but we tech enthusiast don't have time for formalities. Right off the bat, we've run the new phablet through its paces by executing a few performance benchmark apps on it. After all, the Note 4's 5.7" screen comes with that ultra-sharp QHD resolution that is sure to need the full power from the built-in SoC in order to move at a steady pace. Given that, it's especially interesting to see what kind of perforance we can expect from the Samsung Galaxy Note 4.
Preliminary Galaxy Note 4 benchmark results

not bad keeping in mind that these tests are from just a preproduction device.... I hope before the release they will optimize the software

People will optimize their Note 4's S805 and their Exynos 5433 to achieve a lot higher than what we see here.

they cant use it the regular way the normal people use phones?
22. JMartin22 (Posts: 1969; Member since: 30 Apr 2013)
Because these scores are low for a phone running cutting-edge hardware like this. It's obviously not showcasing it's full potential. People will tweak the software around, change the kernel settings, mess with the thermal throttle limits and CPU/GPU frequencies to achieve higher I'm sure. The benchmark listings on the page showed here, seem un-calibrated.

That´s the nearest to the truth you can get.

where is papa smurf ???
i assume he will be crying in bathroom.
lolll...note 4 is not even able to surpass Z2.
what a failure by samsung..,
Sony took good decision by not going for s805 and QHD gimmicks.
Z3 & Z3C best devices .

You realise that this is not final product?

So the Note 4 (I assume SD805 version) so far doesn't exactly blow away older phones (not even the Note 3). I know benchmarks don't say much but if Sony stayed with the SD801, then the SD805 seems to be a gimmick (like QHD at the moment).

I would said SD805 is not really capable to support QHD ~
I guess thats why Sony stay with SD801 and FHD ~

Wow..... Another troll fail definitely....

But when note 3 blowed everything away...you haters where saying benchmarks really doesn't matter much....
What happened suddenly???
26. clearblack (Posts: 59; Member since: 04 Sep 2014)
you know why the note 3 blowed away everything because Samsung cheated benchmarks withe note3 when they didnt cheat with the note 4 look what are the results

Apparently only the 810 is a proper upgrade. Even the 801 is just a spec bump over the 800
11. strudelz100 (Posts: 644; Member since: 20 Aug 2014)
Nothing special about running 800/801/805. Krait is 3 years old and has literally been ridden to death adding cores and clock speed and selling it as something new every 6 months.
QHD is a colossal waste of power as well. It yields even less improvement than the transition from 720 to 1080P. The display on the One X is still beautiful despite being "only 720P".
The Note 4 would gain 20-30% more performance and battery life if it were "just 1080P".

Unfortunately, the market is driving these QHD screens - don't put it in your flagship, and many people will pass it over.
Having a G3, I do like the display - but when I go back to my Note 2, I do not at all have a feeling like I've stepped into the stone ages.
I'd have liked to see phones stay at 1080p for a while and let us enjoy a significant increase in battery life. Now we're playing catch up again.
18. Ashoaib (Posts: 3229; Member since: 15 Nov 2013)
I bet if samsung didnt put QHD many many people might pissed off... so it is a right move

Agree its more of a marketing strategy

But not being a 64bit hurt it more why not 810 I think I will see what HTC has and nexus x
21. jdrch (Posts: 86; Member since: 08 Jul 2014)
FWIW, the only phone that can be fairly compared to the Note 4 is the G3, because it's the only other phone driving a 1440p screen. The more pixels you push, the slower you'll be.

Yes. We're all disappointed in a 5.7" QHD screen that performs as well as or better than the other rockets in this class and brings the S-Pen along for the ride...
The LG is a spec monster for sure. Kinda like Frankenstein. Good parts but put together poorly in a usability sense.
The HTC is nice until you put a case on it and use head phones, then it's just another phone.
The Note series always was and still is a beast in every good sense of the word. It performs great, brings incredible graphics and has the S-Pen differentiator. The Note 4 just ups all that to the next level.
