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...

Just think about the difference between an i5 dual core and anything ARM. Comparing the A6X with a mobile phone chip set is.......LOL

The iPhone 5s or 6 won't be nearly as powerful as the iPad 4 and neither would any mobile handset. The iPhone 6 will push less than 720p and whatever is in the GS4 will push 1080p max. The A6x has to push 2048 x 1500. Its just a completely different class.

CreeDiddy could be right. If the A7 is based on the PowerVR series 6, we're looking at 100 GFLOPS at the very least. ipad 4 is rated at 76.8 GFLOPS in comparison.

-yawn- Gtx 780 ti is going to be 4 teraflops of double precision with 6gb vram.

Can you provide a dedicated GPU into an iPad, let alone an iPhone? This is an apples to oranges comparison. You are talking about an NVidia GPU desktop graphics card vs. onboard GPU embedded into the CPU of an iPhone/iPad.

Not if they under clock it for the puny battery, which they will.

Yeah, I don't believe this is the real GS4. It's probably their internal testing model to compare with Exynos 5 performance.
There is chance that they might go with S600 or S800 snapdragon for US models but there is no way they will put the same old S4 MSM8960 from last year's phone into GS4.

Here is a champion, my dear sammy! nevertheless I wish other companies to make awsome phones to compete with sammy.

I hope Samsung will get a little smarter with how they manufacture their phones. Everyone loves high end specs, myself included, but a 5" screen is really off putting to me, and i know many others who don't enjoy this trend.
At the same time i know there's a lot of desire for large screen phones! What i hope on a daily basis, is Samsung releasing the S4 in at least 2 different screen sizes.
I know it's possible to keep the high end specs in a smaller form! I personally think 4.3 - 4.6 screen size is the sweet spot! Anyone think of a reason as to why they wouldn't consider this an option?

They will have an SIV mini I'm sure. One reason I could think as to why they would lessen the internals though, would be to prevent stealing the SIV's thunder. ASUS does the same with their tablets. There can only be one top dog is their idea I guess.

It isn't the manufacturers problem. The iphone 5 is less than 720p and that screen resolution is fine because they never mention the actual resolution, they just say 326 ppi.

With Android on the other hand, people see 4.3 inches but only 720p. They don't realize that it is 342 ppi and automatically assume it is low end next to the 1080p screens.

The Acer cloud mobile and Xperia V has the same internals and resolution as the One X and GS3, yet Android fans refuse to call the former high end phones but have no problem calling the latter high end phones.

The Xiaomi Phone 2 has the same internals as the Xperia Z, Nexus 4, Optimus G, Droid DNA, probably the M7 and has a 4.3 720 p display for $299 and people still complain that Android doesn't have any smaller high end phones.

When Samsung does introduce the GS4 mini with the same internals as the GS4 with a 4 inch 720 p instead of a 5 inch 1080p display, they need to educate the Android consumers that it is pretty much just as high end. They both scale to be about the same, meaning if you blow up that 720p 4 inch screen to 5 inches, it would be the equivalent to the 5 inch 1080p or pretty close at least.

And customers need to understand that the GS4 mini will probably perform better if they have the same internals because it would push less pixels. In theory, they could actually lower the internals in the GS4 mini and it would perform just as good as the main GS4 since the mini would push less pixels, it doesn't need the same internals. That is how Apple does it. When the screen size is small, you can design a high end screen that is less than 720p.

It is similar to a car versus a truck. The truck will have a more powerful engine because it needs to push the extra weight. That doesn't mean the car is lower end or lesser though.

Whoa.. text wall.

I'm referring to the min they already make... with lesser internals.

Hmmm. The S4 pro is probably good enough for the GS4 mini though since it only has to push 720p or less. It would be the fastest phone if it had a similar resolution to the iphone 5.

Maybe this is the GS4 mini and they mistakenly listed the 1080 p resolution. Otherwise, I see no reason to use the S4 pro for their flagship. With Sony and HTC, they have no choice. It is either S4 pro, Tegra 4, or delay the Xperia Z/M7 until the Qualcomm 600/800 comes out. Samsung must have more choices than a S4 pro, I hope.

The S4 Pro is more than powerful enough to run a 1080p tablet lag free.

Not from what I have seen. The Nexus 4 runs much better than the 1080p phones to me.

Still Xperia Z has advantage overall and not forgetting the fact that Z has out performed Nexus 4 :P lets wait for S4 whtever though

Who cares if its using a Snapdragon or not. Im using an S4 Pro device as we speak and it NEVER lags or stutters and runs any game at 100% with no hiccups and executes tasks instantly.

The hardware race is dead boys and girls. If there is no difference in day to day use; then who cares about benchmark scores. All that matters at this point is improving battery life.

I agree...I don't care what everybody else says, the s4 pro is a beast.

Yeah But Samsung phones are known to have a slight lag with Snapdragons take The S3 and S2 for instance, Samsung's Exynos Processors are truly optimized for use with their phones, so I don't need the octo-core, but I do want an Exynos (notice I said "slight", it's only noticeable if you compare it to a phone using an Exynos processor other than that it runs superbly )

Im using an Optimus G which runs the S4 Pro of course and LG's custom skin. The processor was not specifically tailored for this UI; but it still runs 100% stutter and lag free.

To sum it up simply: The S4 Pro runs Android 100% lag free regardless of the skin.

Xperia Z benchmark is much better than this and droid dna. U Sams**t samdung fans go check other websites abt xperia Z screen and camera. Its excellent according to them. Those bad screen probably prototype not retail version so quit bitching abt it. Iphone arena is full of Samdung and iphone fans and it made me sick. Sure ill gt thumbs down from samdung fans
