Purported Galaxy S IV benchmark results appear

0. phoneArena 12 Feb 2013, 06:55 posted on

And here it is - the Galaxy S IV has finally appeared in the online database of GLBenchmark. Of course, we shouldn't take this information too seriously yet, because it may easily be some other device, but for now the sources are pretty excited about these results, and even if there's the slightest chance of them being true, this means that it's impossible for us to ignore them...

Impressive indeed, more than doubling the SIII/Note II scores and coming close to the brute-powered Nexus 4's 720p FPS at native 1080p.

Do we know the GPU type already?

This is he first I've heard of any tests. Internals wise, I've only heard of Octo core exynos 5.

I like how darkkjedii gets a bunch of red thumbs even when he sounds positive for a change, hahaha.

Did you notice the difference between onscreen and off-screen?
I think this further proves the fact that it will be of a higher resolution because it actually scored less for the on-screen!

Did not know the Nexus 4 was that far ahead of the S3 and Note 2. Could someone explain what the higher fps means as far as the phone's performance goes? I'm confused because the other phones are not bad at handling in game visuals.

Benchmarks simply show raw capabilities and future-proofing as most games run smooth on older devices such as the SII. The point is, 1080p screen requires more processing power, and results show the "S4" can handle itself.

Proper hardware/software optimization should take care of that.

i think its just a normal test, coz iPhone 5 scored more than s4, s4 should be more powerful than iPhone 5

Right it was 29fps my bad ,well iphone 5 onscreen test is better than gs4 because of the lower resolution on iphone 5 the gs4 uses and FHD screen

Xperia Z is the best, let the thumbs down begin

Xperia Z = fragile glass back, horrible battery life, washed out colors and terrible viewing angles, bad camera with purple and pink tints everywhere, uninspired generic rectangle design, and an exact copy of LG Optimus G.

Yup, Xperia Z truly the best.

Xperia Z's absolute horrid less than 10 hours battery life and barely 3 hours screen on time:

Yeah, every one of us uses the phone in that angle. Because we have no rationality to get face-to-face with the device.

I would prefer purple tint Z to red-tint-in-the-pitch-dark of Nexus 4 or glowy-glowy-green-tint-in-eternal-darkness of Note II. At least I have the geo-physics knowledge that sky is purplish at nights. :)

Yet, GS IV will surely beat Xperia Z in benchmark scores no matter what. Because, Samsung is more experienced in developing smart phones and Xperia Z will be released earlier.

But in any means, I would not underestimate the beauty of Bravia, when it comes to watch high definition video. Even my old Xperia S has surprised every one of my friends with its lovely screen. I'm sure Z will surpass S's quality.

Sorry, but I hate AMOLED's greenish light that reflects outward the screen. It makes me sleepy...

1. you dont even know what kind of glass they put on xperia Z!!
I believe lets do the drop test with your plastic S4 and see whose going to break first.
2. its HDR mode that's why it overexpose on shots but ohh wait its more details and i see people walking than dark useless video(note & nexus4.)
3. before you judge the screen, its a reality display not digital display so if youll watching it on youtube then your dumb.
4. hundreds of phone is on an rectagular design, Z is the only one design beautifully or should i say youve been brain wash by S3 plastic look.

Yup Xperia is truly the best, thanks

Xperia Z has Snapdragon pro CPU which nexus 4 and DNA had since nov 2012.. LOL DNA has better screen Super LCD 3.....

Galaxy s4 will surely have better benchmarks and when finsihed products come out, Mali t 604 or T 658 will surely ber Aderano 420 their competition is with Tegra 4 or Snapdragon 600 or 800...

Sony uses old hardware and cannot even pass a single benchmark of DNA.. not even battery bu much... Rest in peace

You Sir I Love, That is exactly what I always say, plus Viewing angles to me are more important than a n unnecessarily high resolution, I mean what the point of it if I can;t even see if I move off center
