Samsung Galaxy S4 with Exynos 5 Octa benchmarks outscore every Android out there
0. phoneArena 28 Mar 2013, 03:47 posted on
On Quadrant, the GT-I9500 model scored 12,726 points, which is higher than the HTC One, for instance, which was the fastest stock one so far in this test, though the S4 is still in the twelve hundreds range. A larger difference is seen in AnTuTu, though, where the Exynos 5 Octa-laden Galaxy S4 printed out 27,417 points - about 10% more than the highest score so far, achieved by the stock Snapdragon 600 version of Samsung's current finest...

wow! the only problem is the s4 with the exynos chip does not offer lte.but still that is impressive

you know note 2? yea they all had lte and exynos 4.

Who cares about LTE, HSPDA+ is very good, along with the "FINEST EXYNOS CHIPS"

I was really impressed by how Sammy achieved this feat but I still have my Note 2 and I am still satisfied with it. Gonna wait for Note 3 though coz I know it will also sport the Octa core CPU. GO SAMSUNG! YOU LEAD THE WAY. [+]

Does anyone think the US Note III has a chance of sporting the Exynos chip set? I don't understand why they'd leave it out now and use it later but happened with the II. The scores are better than the Snapdragon chip set especially in the GPU area with the PowerVR GPU.

I think even S600 is powerfull enough - i quess there is not a single app that can not handle such a powerfull device....so no need to worry...
What i personally expect from N3 is that it will come with a very NEW connector - "dock" that can be attached to a HDMI screen and use it like a PC with BT keyboard, mouse. Even the S4 showed more features "for life" - so hopefully N3 will got more features "for business"...
Think about it - it is just software tweak - attach external monitor and you can easily use it like a PC, with multiwindow and stuff....Polaris Office is already a good soft for basic/a bit advanced stuff....email client of Samsung is the best one out there - easily beats the stock one of W8...
And with limitation of wacom technology to 1280x...bringig it up on fHDresolution will be also very impresive jump.
My country will get S600 on S4, personally will stay with my N1 to August - and the grab S4 / Note3. If N3 will just get more power and some features of S4 - i ll grab S4.

Exynos 5 Octa all the way, no 2 ways about it. I was informed by Samsung store stratford UK that they will definitely get the Exynos 5 version by 26th April, so YAY!
21. thethird (Posts: 72; Member since: 28 Mar 2013)
Asia will surely get this variant along side with the Snapdragon 600. [+]

Sammy you are amazing !
thats why snap600 on gs4 was clocked at 1.9Ghz to match wit octa 5 but still octa triumps!

Am I missing something as I see the HTC One X+ but not the HTC One? Neither do I see the Xperia Z. Benchmarks elsewhere suggest the HTC One is pretty much a match and the XZ is close behind. The point being that the average Joe could not care less about benchmarks but how the phone performs in everyday use. Given that the margins in terms of performance is not that great between the S4, One and Z in that order, is this article not being disingenious in promoting the merits of the S4. Hmmmmmmm?????
Do I sense a blind bias almost as much as that shown to the Fruit company? iPhone Arena soon to become Samsung Arena, I wonder. Please provide us without allegiances with unbiased, professional opinions so we can make informed decisions rather than this biased crap journalism. Poor build quality would always preclude Samsung from my deliberations, after poor experience of inexplicable cracks on the S3 and even more appalling customer service (unforgiveable in any circumstances) but I still want the facts when reading a review.

"The point being that the average Joe could not care less about benchmarks but how the phone performs in everyday use"
----haven't heard of Samsung users having problem with there daily use, Samsung knows there target customers and as a proof the S3 sold way more than we've expected. that is bcoz not that only samsung thrown out powerful hardwares but also software improvements for the user to enjoy. They still basically continue this tradition with the S4. Phonearena i think is not biased,you just have to deal that samsung has already established a name for the High end segment.

this isnt PA's own benchmarks, this came from Sammobile!!!
you just know how to speak hate

"This came from Sammobile!!!"
It is doubtful enough already.

but this is a benchmark test..
they just ran the test and thats it>screenshot.. they cant manipulate it..
woooh, cant stand any day with trolls

snapdragon 800 will be a beast.pretty awesome job for exynoss though
63. TROLL (banned) (Posts: 4851; Member since: 13 Apr 2012)
Not pretty awesome but awesome!
And that's only the standard Exynos 5410, you've still got there Exynos 5450 just imagine what that will do!!!!!!!

I have to admit that I love the htc one ,but this is pure awesomeness !
66. babyk (Posts: 221; Member since: 03 Nov 2011)
pure awesomeness? What will you leave for snapdragon 800 and tegra 4?
34. amansingal14 (Posts: 290; Member since: 08 Sep 2012)
@phonearena, didn't Lenovo K900 score 27000 in antutu too...
Thanks for red thumbs in adv.
36. thethird (Posts: 72; Member since: 28 Mar 2013)
I think you over read it, to my understanding, PA points out that it scored below the 27000 mark
quote from the article: " People who had the chance to run AnTuTu on the device got results of 25,000 points and above, with a best score (so far) in the lower 27,000's.
37. amansingal14 (Posts: 290; Member since: 08 Sep 2012)
This is also a best score so far and not an average score.
Also, that was a model, made for display only, while Samsung is now preparing to ship S4 to various retailers. Thus it has the necessary soft. enhancements that the lenovo did't have.
42. Luisit0 (Posts: 73; Member since: 18 Feb 2013)
It's just about 600 more points than the Snapdragon 600 averages on the HTC One on the Quadrant Standard app... Don't know about the other ones though, as most reviews used only that one app. Honestly, for an Octa-Core, I'm not impressed.
57. TROLL (banned) (Posts: 4851; Member since: 13 Apr 2012)
Well if you're not impressed you can Root jailbreak the S4 and install Custom Roms and use SIYAH Kernels, there you will have the option to run all 8 CPU to you're choice!
67. amansingal14 (Posts: 290; Member since: 08 Sep 2012)
What has happened to you man?
Respecting others while commenting. That was not your stye. However bro, its good to see you this way...
However, a major point that does not satisfies me is that cyanogenmod will no longer support samsung s4.
70. Retro-touch (Posts: 262; Member since: 24 Oct 2011)
That is not what was said, they might still support it, its a matter of who will want to suffer through hours of buggy sources to get it up and running, the CM devs who made a statement weren't speaking for the whole team collectively just a few of them
72. TROLL (banned) (Posts: 4851; Member since: 13 Apr 2012)
AOKP AOSP KRISKELO MIUI LIQUID ROM
Cyanageon mod are not good buggy!
43. Luisit0 (Posts: 73; Member since: 18 Feb 2013)
As in, S4 only beat the HTC One on CPU and 3D, and it wasn't a big difference: mainenewsonline com/technology/htc-one-benchmark-defeat-4-htc-nexus-one-x/9302/
65. babyk (Posts: 221; Member since: 03 Nov 2011)
This isnt a great score to start with and im betting snapdragon 800 will wipe the floor then tegra 4 will take king spot
74. TROLL (banned) (Posts: 4851; Member since: 13 Apr 2012)
You've forgot about the Exynos 5450 A15 which can be clocked upto 2.9 GHZ!
Qualcomm Tegra TIOMAP NOVATHOR don't stand a chance with EXynos CPU neither TSMC!
The S4 uses a 5410 then you have 5420 5430 and the 5440 which I think no manufacture will use due to huge battery drain cause of pure power!
Looks like you will need a 5000Mah battery
83. Edmund (Posts: 656; Member since: 13 Jul 2012)
I love how they conveniently leave out real life battery tests : 4 hours 20 min screen time is nothing to write home about.
86. moronman66 (Posts: 159; Member since: 09 Jan 2012)
On benchmarks, Tegra 4 still wins against the Octa core, 16k on Quadrant and 36k on AnTuTu, so on and so forth to own all benchmarks, but does it mean it's better? Probably not noticeably, they will all do the same stuff.
88. Taters (Posts: 3291; Member since: 28 Jan 2013)
HTC One owned again.
To the people saying that they are not impressed for an Octacore are hilarious. First they say it isn't a true octacore. Now it is apparently to suit their bias.
The truth is that this is some extremely impressive engineering. For example, the Exynos 5 dual in the Nexus 10 would die in 20 minutes or something really fast if the battery was only 2600 mah. The fact that they managed to maintain a good portion of A15 power without stripping it down to krait level or A6 level that it isn't a true A15 anymore while maintaining great battery life is impressive.
Cry some more haters. haha
98. Berzerk000 (Posts: 4073; Member since: 26 Jun 2011)
True A15 is pretty amazing. big.Little is as well, giving you A15 power without the battery drain, but it still doesn't change the fact that it isn't a true octa core processor, at least not now.
I also don't see how the One is owned in this article. If anyone is owned, it's Qualcomm; but of course you would grab at any chance to take a shot at HTC. Qualcomm isn't even owned either, they still haven't released the Snapdragon 800. The least you could have done to hide your fanboy attitude is to mention some of the other devices using the Snapdragon 600; the Optimus G Pro, Padfone Infinity, and 70% of all Galaxy S4's.
I think you're the hater here. Quit being an ass hat.
101. Taters (Posts: 3291; Member since: 28 Jan 2013)
The funny thing is that this chip would be more powerful without the extra 4 cores, battery would die fast but it would be more powerful.
It would be interesting to see how this thing benches without the weaker cores and have the powerhouse cores do all the lifting.
You can't really classify it so if they want to market it as octa, they technically are not wrong. It does have 8 cores.
105. Berzerk000 (Posts: 4073; Member since: 26 Jun 2011)
Would it? The Antutu benchmark only recognized it as quad core, on the 3rd slide it reads "1800 MHz (x4)" and judging from the score, it was testing the A15 cores.
It is technically an 8 core processor, but that is guaranteed to mislead a lot of people to believe that there are 8 cores in the phone processing at once, which is wrong.

1,8ghz??? S4 have proccesor with exynos 5 octa 1,6 ghz. Snapdragon 600 for S4 > S4 Exynos 5 Octa 1,6 ghz (no 1,8ghz)
102. dougsmillertime (Posts: 1; Member since: 28 Mar 2013)
You Samsungers drive me nuts... Lol! Someone posts a benchmark on a pre-production galaxy S4 that's been overclocked to 1.8ghz and who knows what else. And, all of a sudden you play it like the Snapdragon is old news. You may want to check your numbers... The Exynos chipped S4 clocked at the proper 1.6 Ghz is pulling about 24,000. Almost the same as the Snapdragon. Most phone reviewers own Samsungs... Or iPhones. So, they do a proper test on the device and post the best results. But, when they get an HTC or and LG in their hands they don't bother to free up available RAM before doing the test. And they usually post the lower results. Proper benchmarks on the 1.7 Ghz HTC One are 25,000+ and 12,500 on antutu and quadrant respectively. The Snapdragon 600 is going to be in 70% of the S4 line because it is a better all around chip. Benchmarks aside...
109. HDShatter (Posts: 1021; Member since: 17 Jan 2013)
Anyone wondering: The s4 with an exynos 5 does have noticeabley better battery life than the snapdragon 600 version. It uses the a7 for stuff like idle, calls, texting, video etc. The true power of the octa kicks in only when needed (games mostly)
115. gogowho (Posts: 37; Member since: 12 Mar 2013)
yes, hope some report about it, not just benchmeark
111. Note2waitingonNote3 (banned) (Posts: 87; Member since: 19 Mar 2013)
Perfect reason WHY I will not purchase any snapdragon 600 Galaxy S4. I want Exynos Octa 5 in my next device. Clearly that will be the Galaxy Note 3 later this year. My next device definitely.
116. Cwilliams (Posts: 16; Member since: 02 Apr 2013)
The Xperia Z Scored 21,000 on Antutu, and 8900 on Quadrant. Decent when you compare it with the latest Exynos
117. skymitch89 (Posts: 1084; Member since: 05 Nov 2010)
My question is what set of cores are these tests testing? Are they testing the A7 cores or the A15 cores?

How is this working... You guys are on websites doing reviews and taking Galaxy S4 out and testing? I mean the phone is not even released yet! :-s
