Samsung Galaxy S II Skyrocket benchmark tests

0. phoneArena 04 Nov 2011, 15:59 posted on

Before running any benchmark tests, our mind tells us that it’ll probably be slightly below the level of its Exynos equipped counterpart. Rather, we’re pleased to find it performing on the same level, since we’ve able to get scores between 2,787 and 3,636...

i'll stop here .. just wanna anything prove that ICS support multi-cores .. something official or any one report that ICS SDK or kernel do support cores

at work right now so internet is limited, but you can just google "ICS dual core optimized" and it will probably pull right up.

Man, there's always one crying foul in the crowd..

Its called being able to optimise the hardware for the software, and vice versa. Samsung's collaboration with Google for a few years now producing Nexus phones has helped them to a large degree. Either way, Samsung know how to produce quick phones.

Comparing Samsung to HTC, where HTC don't give a fcuk about optimising anything is just rediculious!

lololol. you know, if it were just that easy and simple.

I'll throw away my entire knowledge base, and just say "because its samsung, it must be so".


OOOR..
Even though i am a HUGE champion of samsung tech, I can look with open eyes and compare known reality to what's presented infront of me, and make a comparison.

There is always a dissenter, and in this case, it happens to be one of the biggest geeks on the site that is also one of the biggest fans of samsung tech.. rallying AGAINST a samsung product. Maybe u should take that with a grain of salt and think about it for a second?

Just as a quick thought.

closing your eyes to samsung and just pretending everything they do is beautiful flowers and flawless makes you just as bad as taco and gallito and their blind fantacism to Apple.
You dont want to be like them do you??

i agree with you remixfa..there's something fishy about Samsung benchmark score...i dont know what it is, but i hope someday PA brought this to attention and prove that the score is legit (or not)...so no more false accusation to Samsung for manipulating the score

you know i'm like right there with you on that one guy. xD
i had my suspicions since like the T-Mobile Galaxy S II.

I was wondering when you would chime in. :)

Bench and spec comparison proves it. Samsung is playing with the numbers. Oh well.. just proves one thing.. never buy a snapdragon.. lol :)

yeah, i put that out of my mind long, long ago. xD
i'd still get any of the S3 using Galaxy S IIs over nearly any HTC...MAYBE not the Rezound. i kind of like it.

I think ill just hold on to my Vibrant until something more appealing comes along. Dont want an incrimental upgrade.. want a big fat major upgrade..
Maybe that Tegra3. Its soooo close to a phone launch.. lol. Then again, by the time those launch in a phone, the Exynos quadcores will probably be out, if not at least the 4212 dual core which will be semi-close to performance.

ooooooooh the choices!!! lol.

yeah, i might have to get creative and get myself another phone. xD

So then, using that logic, wouldn't Samsung then be fidgeting the numbers when it comes to the Exynos? I mean think about it, people have hyped up that the Exynos is the best processor out there. Or is it just what Samsung wants us to believe? (twilight zone music starts playing).

My Samsung Galaxy S II is overclocked to 1.6 Ghz and it just ran a 5039 Quadrant Benchmark. The Exynos Processor puts Snapdragons to absolute shame. Absolutely amazing!

No, dude, I totally figured that since the sgsII's benchmarks came out, I just never wanted to argue with anyone lol...

dont be silly. samsung can not do that! I am not saying they wont do it because its moraly wrong, Im saying they can NOT do that.
the benchmark is higher because same SoC dosent mean same performance. even the same exact hardware doesent mean same performance. and benchmark scores depend on many things.
a dual chanel ram does make a huge diffrence in cpu performance.
in computers, even a bump in gpu clock can make cpu more functional.

Or it could be that HTC's sense is crazy bloatware and is a big drain on performance. I vote that.

could be true, exept XDA folks have been removing sense from the sensation and the resulting performance benchmarks didnt change all that much. Sense (or any other UI) and all of its goodies are marginalized during a benchmark test, so most of it has no bearing on the final result.

They might've removed the visual part of Sense but Sense is still the underlying UI and skin running it all. Just like when people run AOSP in place of Touchwiz. It just makes the looks of it like AOSP but it's still Touchwiz in the end.

no, my point was they have roms that run without sense completely.. not just visually removed. Its not impossible. There are many of them, including the world famous Cyanogen. Your thinking of a App drawer replacement. Im thinking of completely different programming.

i agree with you remix, but wouldnt this evidence cause some questions about the exynos benchmark's too? belive me being a gs2(exynos) i dont want to believe it but it does make me wonder. gs2(exynos) runs so smooth i doubt i would care though.

no, as u can tell by the Exynos benchmarks, its I/O scores are not inflated compared to the rest (the skyrockets I/O scores border on rediculous comparitively). The important parts to look at are the categorys i mentioned in the previous post. With just looking at those, the exynos is still the clear winner. It IS the most powerful chip on the android market right now. there is no doubt about that.

I think samsung is just pulling this little slight of hand to reduce fears that the Crapdragon induced SGS2's are still as powerful as the Exynos SGS2s. If it was an obvious difference then they wouldnt sell as well. Thats also part of the reason the crapdragon is clocked up to 1.5ghz to compensate for the lack of actual power
. I included the 1.2ghz HTC Sensation score to give a relative comparison to the Exynos at 1.2ghz, as well as the 1.5ghz Amaze which runs the exact same hardware set up as the Hercules/skyrocket except the screen.
And before anyone points to the resolutions as the difference in power, test after test has shown that the same chipset running different resolutions has only a 1-3% affect in benchmark performance.. AKA nearly none.

THIS! The are playing with the numbers simply to make it seem as though the Snapdragons are as fast. They are not.

I hear this phone has more than 1GIG RAM....is that true?

15. remixfa (Posts: 14600; Member since: 19 Dec 2008)


nope. same as the Hercules through and through.. 1 gig ram, 1.5ghz snapdragon, 4.52inch screen.. only difference is the trade from HSPA+ to LTE.

I guess the snapdragon is a very good chip unlike what people think. Hell it's capable of LTE and 42 Mbps.

neither of which have anything to do with the actual chip performance, and are just add on options available from qualcomm.
