No, we're excited because it's ACTUALLY FAST. You, the iSheep, get excited because it has a new dual core 800 MHz processor!! Wow! Oh, and it has the new iCloud. This means that you can sync apps and music and stuff over the Cloud, just like Android! Only after 5GB, you have to pay money!!
All I'm saying is, it's okay to be a sheep when your shepherd is the Terminator.

I had also taken some screen-shots when they were in the GLbenchmark database.
Check for yourself --
pg(this is already posted in the article)
Also in Beyond3D forum, a member found in a kernel dump that Samsung has revved-up the frequency to 440MHz in the Mali400. Results show that it's more powerful than tegra3 and SGX543MP2 in iPhone4S.
For comparison, SGS2 had Mali400 running at 266MHz.

Something iPhoneArena forgets to mention is that the SGS3 is pushing 1280x720 pixels, while the SGS2 is pushing only 800x480 and the iPhone 4S only 960x640
To put it into clearer terms:
SGS3 ==> 921,600 pixels
iP4S ==> 614,400 pixels
SGS2 ==> 384,000 pixels
The SGS3 is faster than anything out there, has a 320dpi screen that is a whopping 4.6" huge and still thinner and lighter than the brickPhone!
Take my money already!

yea i read on sammobile.com that GT-i9300 is GS2 HD+
and the i9500 is the GS3 :P

no, ur wrong.
Glbenchmark.com shows SGH-I9500 as taizen based Samsung smartphone being tested. results are already up for it on that site.,
and it showed SGH-i9300 as Galaxy S3 before being removed.

GT-I9500 ( != SGH-I9500 ) is running on ICS 4.0.3 and it is 1000Ghz Max/266Mhz Min CPU.
Looks like GT-I9500 is a low end device.

Galaxy S3 performance wise is looking very tasty. I just hope Samsung do it justice by designing a premium looking device made of premium materials and not a generic plastic box. Come on Samsung you can do it!
16. FoneAddict posted on 23 Apr 2012, 04:26 5 0
A phone can feel premium while still feeling light, for example Nokia and HTC use polycarbonate casing which feels solid yet is light. Samsung have the know how to produce similar things, or they can utilise ceramic materials as rumours indicate. Either way for a flagship product I think it's important for it to stand apart from mid and low tier Samsung phones.
It needs to shine alone!!

I only trust 4 benchmark tests: Antutu, GL Benchmark, Browser Mark and SunSpider. not s**tty Quadrant and Linpack.
Exynos 4412: The return of the King!
15. TylerGrunter posted on 23 Apr 2012, 04:08 2 1
I must admit that I prefer Quadrant to Antutu, as the second one puts too much stress in the CPU performance. But that is just a personal preference.
But at the very minimum you should add Nenamark to your list of trustees!
17. hung2900 posted on 23 Apr 2012, 04:28 0 2
Nenamark is good, but it depends on the resolution and as a result, people are likely to have the mistake when seeing the benchmark.
GL Benchmark is perfect for not only on tab/phone but also on PC.
Quadrant is easy to be adjusted, so it's untruthful.
18. TylerGrunter posted on 23 Apr 2012, 04:42 1 1
In my opinition, taking into account the resolution is the right thing to do. Nenamark at the end measures the final performance of the device and the user experince when using it, not merely the GPU performance.
Of course I admit that to compare GPUs GL Benchmark is better, but to compare devices Nenamark is OK too.
25. remixfa posted on 23 Apr 2012, 06:57 1 1
quadrant is one of the most easily faked tests there are.. same with linpack.
if you do like to use quadrant, then you need to buy the pro version and take out the whole I/O section (i believe its the first big blue section off the top of my head) before you compare and contrast. Linpack is an I/O test as well. Both are useless and quite easily fluffed.
Antutu is great. Pair it with nenamark2 and you have CPU and GPU tests. Smartbench 2012 is also a good one.

when did the iPhone become a benchmark?
I hate it when a company has the superior design and option, but decides to go with the lower option for the sake of getting more money! this really cripples and slows down the wheel of technology!
A15>A9 any day, and if the new galaxy comes with a quad A9, I would be really disappointed
26. remixfa posted on 23 Apr 2012, 06:58 1 0
Samsung themselves have said as far as CPU power goes, the quad A9 and dual A15 run about the same power. The only advantage the A15 has is a little better battery savings and the bigger GPU meant for large high res devices.
Of course, 5x the GPU power does sound a lot better than 50%.. :)
30. kshell1 posted on 23 Apr 2012, 07:31 1 0
You have to remember the power of the quad core is roughly equal to the 32nm dual core as remix said only advantage over quad core is battery life, but on paper the average consumer will see quad core and think its better so naturally they will go with it over something with a A15 dual core just because its a bigger number therefore making it "better".
and @remixfa yes 5x the GPU would be absolutely great.
32. remixfa posted on 23 Apr 2012, 07:59 1 0
thats about the size of it.
samsung did a great job of making the exynos 4210 battery efficient, so i have no doubts that this one wont be even better since its die shrank. Also between identical chips (4212 for example) in dual and quad form, the quad has the power advantage because the cores use less juice to run all 4 at low power than it does for 2 at high power. The A15 gets an advantage because of its advanced design

I agree, my e4gt gets around 10hrs of heavy usage even when overclocked to 1.8ghz.
38. Hunt3rj2 posted on 23 Apr 2012, 17:58 0 0
A15 has a little better battery savings, much better GPU, and the overall single core performance is insanity.
I'll take the Exynos 5250 any day of the week.
40. remixfa posted on 23 Apr 2012, 19:56 0 0
id prefer a 5250 quad and just be done with it. but honestly, im dying for a new phone, so ill take a 4212 or a 5250.. i dont care. its still about 4x the power of my SGS1 at minimum.. and thats enough of an upgrade to make me throw down some cash.
41. Hunt3rj2 posted on 23 Apr 2012, 20:25 0 0
Dual core A15 should be enough power at this stage, quad core seems like it would run into power drain issues.
42. remixfa posted on 23 Apr 2012, 20:53 0 0
thats a misnomer.
quadcore actually gets better usage between the dual/quad core set ups of the same chip.
4 cores running at 50% power uses less juice than 2 cores running at 100% power. The last 30% or so of available power per core is where most of the battery drain is.. so the less often they are stressed that much, the better the battery life.
the only reason the 5250 dual should get the same or better battery life than the 4212 quad is because of its advanced design. they are both 32nm chips.
We might get a surprise and see the 4212 outlast the 5250 in battery life.. especially under heavy load, for the very reason i just mentioned.
We will have to wait and see for that one though.
44. Hunt3rj2 posted on 23 Apr 2012, 21:08 0 0
The problem is that you're assuming that everything can be equally loaded. Many tasks are only lightly threaded, and that means that single core performance will still matter.
The reality is that even if the 5250 has to go to 100% on two cores and the 4412 has to go to 100% on 4, the 5250 will finish faster and be able to enter deep sleep/idle mode.
Which is easier to work? Four slower-working people that equal two faster-working people? You have to find 4 separate tasks that everyone can simultaneously work on for four people, when it only takes two for the faster-working people.

Same as s2 just root the phone
And overclock the gpu at 400mhz.... I've rooted mine and it's running at 1,6 CPU 400 gpu....

I fail to see how it holds its own against the new ipad when the ipad beats two of the tests (which are the ones it beat the tegra 3 by a noticable amount) by 50%. So to sum up I can't understand how it beat the tegra 3 by a large margin but held its own against the new ipad :s Either way though it does look like a nice chip!
43. remixfa posted on 23 Apr 2012, 20:56 0 1
because the A5X chip in the ipad is very overclocked.. which is why it comes with a huge battery.
The 4212 exynos quad is not meant to be a tablet class chip. Just like the ipad's A5X is very unlikely to be seen in the next iphone.
Its a phone class chip.. and when it comes to phones.. 4212 kills.
The 5250 with its 5x stronger GPU is going into tablets, and will utterly devour the apple A5X chip.

I have heard a lot about the design of this phone. People did not like the looks at all saying that it looks lik a soapbar !!! Its not bad at all !! And most of us will put a cover on it so who will see the looks !! :-p the specs are sooo awsome, i'l go for the white one, as i have used many black coloured fones in the past and i think its time to go for a different colour . The white looks the best ! see it here: http://www.jawal123.com/-1982401994/en-us/%D8%B3%D8%A7%D9%85%D8%B3%D9
