Apple iPhone 4S Safari browser benchmarked, a photo gets taken with the new 8MP camera
In out Apple iPhone 4 browser benchmarks we were getting around 45-49 000 scores on BrowserMark, which was only slightly below the browsers on dual-core handsets like the Samsung Galaxy S II, although loading times of pages with Safari were slower in comparison with the multicores despite lack of plugins like Adobe Flash.

Now someone with an early access to the iPhone 4S has posted BrowserMark results of 89567, which is almost double the achievements of Safari on the iPhone 4. So, yes, surfing the Internets will be much quicker on the new dual-core iPhone 4S than before. SunSpider, which measures Java performance, returned results that are 3x better than on the iPhone 4. Of course, these results might be due to optimizations in iOS 5, not only to the dual-core A5 system chip. Any desktop browser would laugh at such BrowserMark results, but they are pretty impressive for a mobile device.

The same source posted a picture they snapped with the improved 8MP camera sensor, and it looks pretty sharp and with the amount of detail you would expect from this resolution. The guys recorded the soundless video below, detailing the benchmark process and testing the Siri voice-recognitioin platform. The Siri settings page, which we haven't seen before, shows that you can check to activate the assistant by lifting the phone up, and, of course, set the language of your choosing from the handful available.
