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...

ok please correct that last line, grammar wise it's terrible, and If I have a phone that big it's for multimedia purposes such as watching movies, and I don't think I'll be the only one watching it, so I'll like for other people to be able to see, or me if I just so happen to need to move across and son't want to move my phone

And Plus I love Amoled Screens sure they are over saturated and the reproduction is completely natural, but you should know that samsung has given you the ability to change the settings if you so please, Plus I Love the over-saturation, If i wanted natural colours I would buy a blackberry curve or something, I love to see the colours pop, Since when did we care about natural colours when years ago we use to turn up the contrast to insane levels saying the the "natural colours" were too muted, mankind needs to make up it's mind on what it wants from a smartphone

Seldom join in stupid debates because they are simply that, stupid. I have the HTC One X+ which is generally acnowledged as perhaps the best screen out there to date and you will be hard pushed when watching a film on it to suggest it is better than that of the Xperia T which I also own. The screen on the Xperia Z is much better than that of the Xperia T and I am not sure there is much debate there, so what is likely to be wrong with this given that the same arguments apply. I love the screen of my Xperia T and marginally prefer watching films on it to the HTC. As for viewing angles, I don't share my media content with others, I am usually plugged into my headphones when enjoying my media content, anyway if they want to watch a movie they can pretty darn well go pay for it, I do. If I do want a friend to watch it, they can borrow the phone and enjoy in full stereo, afterall, who wants to listen to the sound through the speakers of a mobile phone!

Okay this doesn't make any sense at all.
Why would a galaxy s4 use an old dual core snapdragon ?!?

Soc could be MSM8960T instead...with adreno320 as benchmark scores suggest...I'll be really happy...if samsung and qualcomm team up and surprise all with MSM8974 inside :)

I think this is probably their internal testing prototype. They do that to compare and evaluate the performance of new Exynos version.

I do not think the 8 core processor will be in the Galaxy S IV. It's too new and I think it may be in the Note III when they launch that in the Summer/Fall of 2013.

They most Likely will, just because of the fact that the always release the international version of their phone with an Exynos Processor and then change it depending on the region

Hope the international version never comes with the s4 pro chip set. We need octa core.

S4 pro is terribly inefficient, overheats to the point your phone explode, and can't even handle 1080p.

It's becasue i don't like the snapdragon chips. I want sgs4 to be unique and different from other flagships that are powered by qualcomm's chips despite being powerfull.

Hahahahaha.... Have you used DNA..? it has snapdragon s4 pro and 1080p screen and its the best on market.. Rest in peace

The Nexus 4 performs much better than the DNA, so I would hardly say that it is the best in the market. If the DNA proves anything, it is that 1080p screens need something more powerful than the S4 pro.

If you think the s4 pro runs hot you better get your oven mitts out if you think the S4 will use an exynos 5.

You know that the Samsung Octa core is not REALLY an octa core, do you?

I will probably not going to buy an SIV, but if I would, I will want the best SoC available. Not the one that is different, just to be different.

If Samsung really going to use Qualcomm over they own Soc, that is because their SoC is not good enough OR is not ready.

Qualcomm is better than exynos anyway.

Then Why is it that Even Samsung's Dual Core Exynos Processor won plenty of awards upon it's release ?

I know that these are preliminary specs, but if that is the best that we have in the SIV it is no comparison to the iPad 4. That means an A7 will crush this processor even at dual core. So I can't imagine an A7 quad core going up against this SIV. It would be a complete land slide in terms of benchmarks and performance.

The A7 in the iPhone 5s won't be nearly as powerful as the A6x. The A6x is built for a huge battery and to push the high resolution. Don't be surprised if they just retweak the A6 for the iphone 5s.

From what I understand the A6 and A6X chipset architecture is the same. They have improved the speed of the GPU chip.

Yes the GPU is a quad core instead of the dual in the iPhone 5. Plus the A6X is clocked way higher. Like I said, a huge difference and whatever is in the iPhone 5s won't come close to either the GS4 or iPad 4.
