Samsung Galaxy S II overclocked, exceeds 4,000 on the Quadrant benchmark test
Meanwhile, overseas a Samsung Galaxy S II owner decided that the 1.2GHz dual core Exynos processor was just not fast enough, so he overclocked the phone to 1.5GHz. A Quadrant benchmark test performed at that speed resulted in a score of over 4,000.
If you own the device and would like to attempt to duplicate the feat, click on the sourcelink. Just make sure that you can handle that speed.

Highly unlikely you'll see the Galaxy S 2 through Verizon. Verizon is extremely sensitive to any manufacturer gaining to much "power" in the industry like Apple. Samsung was the #1 Android manufacturer in the US last year and Verizon knows this. They were hesitant to even launch the Fascinate for fear customers would put to much credibility to the device and not their network. And you forget about a "Droid" version of the Galaxy S 2 because Verizon requires exclusivity to get their precious Droid name on any device and Sammy won't bow to Verizon's demands and alienate all the other carriers in the US for their flagship device.
Too bad the customer has to suffer.

Wonder what this whole Samsung manufactured "Droid" Charge is then...ignorance is bliss good sir so you must be EXTREMELY blissful.

The Droid Charge and the Galaxy S2 are differeny devices.
It appears that you are blissful as well.

for all intensive purposes the droid charge is a rebranded galaxyS with LTE and some minor tweaks. Its obviously a great piece of hardware then, but its not a galaxy2.
Verizon WILL release it (hopefully without bing this time) as verizon likes to make MONEY more than it likes to make "the customer suffer"
obviously people love to suffer as they are america's largest carrier.. at least until this merger goes through.

Did you mean for all intents and purposes?

I want.... too bad the only specs on them show GSM, not looking good for V right now.
11. remixfa (Posts: 14255; Member since: 19 Dec 2008)
its going to be released on all carriers more than likely. Its only showing for GSM right now because its only been released in gsm countries. dont worry, u will see cdma (and hopefully LTE/wimax) soon enough.

Does overclocking hurt the hardware or put it at risk? It's something I don't know much about.

Technically yes, but I've had my G2 overclocked to 1.4 for 6 months and haven't even had a random restart or force close. I'm thinking the safety factor on these processors is pretty high...

to overclock, u must void the warranty by rooting it. yes, its a hardware risk as it makes the processor much hotter than normal and u risk melting things.
That said, its quite fun. :)

That's rather weak actually.

We need a working overclocking module for the Atrix...
I got flamed in another thread where I said the Tegra II, clock for clock, is faster than the Exynos. The results from Smartbench 2011 just reinforce this even more..
