What I was trying to point out 3.47 is actually "187%" more than 1.21... And 187 is nowhere near 300.

Good lord, man, doesn't anyone know how to do math any more? The 300% higher figure comes from BGR, but is obviously wrong.
You can say that Apple scored 286% as high as Samsung, or you can say it scored 186% higher. If you don't know how to get these figures, hang your head in shame and ask your 5th grade teacher.
Finally, FixYa is comparing Apple's high end only phones with Samsung's entire line of high-, mid-, and low-range phones. I'd expect Apple to score higher just for that reason.
This analysis, though possibly directionally right, is misleading.
