Exynos 7420 (Galaxy S6) vs Snapdragon 810 (HTC One M9) vs Apple A8 (iPhone 6) benchmark scores

Exynos 7420 (Galaxy S6) vs Snapdragon 810 (HTC One M9) vs Apple A8 (iPhone 6) benchmark scores
MWC is winding down, and with it everybody can take a closer look at the nitty-gritty details of the flagships announced. A Galaxy S6 model has been tested on the cross-platform GeekBench, pitted against Qualcomm's finest Snapdragon 810 in the new HTC One M9, and Apple's top A8 dog in the iPhone 6.

Needless to say, the record multicore scores of the Galaxy S6 are due to the octa-core Exynos 7420 chipset, which puts the new Samsung flagship at the top of the mobile game, when the cores are firing on all cylinders. When it comes to the more useful single-core performance, though, it's Apple's A8 that took the helm of the trio with the whopping 1626 points, then the Galaxy S6 with 1443 points, followed by the Snapdragon 810 with 1186. 

Check out the results below, and don't worry, each of the three best mobile chipsets at the moment is more than powerful enough to chew any app or game thrown at them without a hitch, and those scores are basically just for geek bragging rights now.

Samsung really did a good job this time , i hope they dont use Snapdragon at all this time. Whats amazing is that Galaxy S6 Edge scores 70k in Antutu and a whoping 21k score in 3D with 2k display more than any smartphone (M9 with 1080p). They must have designed that Exynos CPU in some way that resolution dosent affect its 3d performance as much.

Well, they ditched microSD but they make a special dual sim edition for Philipines, don't they? http://tinyurl.com/ou52m7s Why? Because they favor carriers more than us. No microSD means more carrier data usage. Thus S6 is more attractive to carriers. They basically say to carriers: "I have a money sucker for you, better than the iPhone!" The CEO said in his speech addressing to the carriers: "our customers will be ready when you are". He also said "We put our customers first, (...) we listen" Who are their customers and who did they listened? Do it like the Appole, Samy

What kills me is people can get WiFi storage devices for only $50 that can fit on your key chain. Also you can get USB storage as well. More then one way to skin a cat. Not to mention the S6 is using the fastest ram (DDR4 not found on any other mobile device), and the fastest emmc storage, and you can also buy the 128 GB version of this device.

So its okay when HTC did it with M7: M7:http://www.gsmarena.com/htc_one-5313.php M7 (dual sim):http://www.gsmarena.com/htc_one_dual_sim-5498.php But its cool to troll for lack of MicroSd slot on a SoC article, right ?

I am saying releasing dual sim version in asian countries is not really a breaking news. All other OEMs do that you're simply drawing unnecessary conclusion here. Besides how sure are you that a Sim card slot can just as easily be replaced with MicroSd slot ? Every company work to make profit but sadly you guys forget when Samsung offers $500 worth of free goodies and free storage on Dropbox ! http://goo.gl/gD4IBx

Not the point though. The point is that Sam makes a dual sim easily and not with an sd. Microsoft just gave 200GB free space

I believe bec SD cards are slow? Samsung perhaps use the latest universal storage flash in S6 and S6 edge which is 2.7 times faster than normal sd cards and by most smartphones are using thats why they provided options for 64 and 128gb..most people dont really use their phone for saving videos and movies 32GB is more than enough for a normal consumer..

Because it is easy. Now easy? The Note 3's microSD slot was also combined with the SIM tray as single piece and the phone was still thin. You solder it to the board and at a path to the SOC, that's it. Here is a picture of the microsd slot not mounted to a PCS -http://img.dxcdn.com/productimages/sku_70847_1.jpg It is very thin. All they have to do is cut a hole in the frame and put a door on it. They dropped the sdcard slot, because probably because the vast majority don't use it. After all, the only reason to have one is with small internal flash storage. With a phone available in 32,64 and 128, do you need it now? Based on typical S6 pricing, the 128GB S6 would be $850 which is the same price of the 64GB iPhone 6 or the 16GB iPhone 6+. If you need the sdcard so bad, which is a bottleneck these days, then stick with an older phone. Also, the phone still has a standard microUSB port. There are microSd adapters that are small hat plug in and use the connection. So you can still have an SDcard if you want. You have seen these...right? -http://i00.i.aliimg.com/wsphoto/v0/1647269778_1/10pc-lot-Micro-SD-MicroSD-TF-T-Flash-Card-Reader-OTG-Microusb-MicroB-microSDXC-microSDHC-Mobile.jpg

You may be up on how bad the sd card lag out the mem controler just adding the slot to the phone, samsung as removed it not to just make more cash on upgrades as they not going to be making that much cash due to the hi end mem being used, but because if they added the sd card a good range of the speed added by the new mem will have gone over to even if you not using an sd card, it's like added ddr1 mem to a ddr4 pc and looks what happens if you do that, I.e. Like the clock speed of the mem if one is lower it all goes down

hmmm....you may have a very good point there. If that's the reason I second Samsung but just wondering do you have any proof to back that up ?

Before that was an issue for all the Samsung funs. now that Samsung remove micro sd slot "none cares". Bigger battery was also an issue and now that Samsung does it "it's ok". it's ok to be sheep, but it's not ok if you are blind sheep.

67. j2001m

It's now not ok due to the speed of the mem being used and it's been bad for some time, it damages the phone speed even on the note 4 even when not using a sd card, Why do think Apple always as the best mem test when it comes to speed, it not because they use good mem as its cheap crap, it's because they do not use a mem controler that supports sd cards

You must be blind. The Fans are pissed that Samsung dropped the microSD support. Aren't you even reading the posts? I'm not happy they dropped it too, but I'm no a fn; it was just a very useful feature for me. But I dot own a S an more I have the Note. But I assume, the Note5 will be the same is they use hi design. There re still ways to use a microSd car with an Android phone whether it has microSD builtin or not -http://i00.i.aliimg.com/wsphoto/v0/1647269778_1/10pc-lot-Micro-SD-MicroSD-TF-T-Flash-Card-Reader-OTG-Microusb-MicroB-microSDXC-microSDHC-Mobile.jpg This is why I wont get mad, because the device still supports it, it just doesn't have the internal mount for it. Big deal. No sense in crying over spilled milk. Its gone so why cry about it? But al least they did increase the internal storage where 32GB is the minimum unlike greedy Apple who dumped 32 for 16 instead.

sdcards, don't make phones bulky. Here is a photo of a microsd card slot. Does that look bulky? http://img.dxcdn.com/productimages/sku_70847_1.jpg

I would rather have the fastest CPU, ram, and storage on my device then micro SD. And this S6 delivers. The S6 is the only mobile device to offer the fastest ram (DDR4), and it also has the fastest emmc 5.1 storage. Which users have the option to get up to 128 GB of emmc 5.1 storage. Not to mention there is USB storage and WiFi storage.

Well, by your logic, I can see why the carriers advertise for iPhones a lot. I mean dude they are the ones selling the phone, so....

Maybe its just the way to make the dust-garhering S5 make sold. Knowing Samsung, they will release S6 with microSD slot after people who bought enough S6 handsets.

So you're saying Samsung removed the memory slot primarily to help sell the S5? That's one of the dumbest things I've heard in a while. There is a possibility that S6 variants and the Note 5 will still have an SD slot. But if the S6 is as profitable as Samsung thinks it's going to be, I don't see why they would (or should) consider a microSD slot at all.

Nope they will not add sd card due to how it damages the mem controler as why Apple a Ways get the best speed.with mem I.e. If they add sd card they remove the fast ram

Cry me a river!! Stop crying over micro sd, it's just a propaganda that was started by trolls like you. Samsung wouldn't jump into such a decision without a heavy study to unsure that the majority of customers will be pleased and it will attract more into ditching their smartphones and going with the S6. And based on what i noticed from comments all over the web and Youtube, they did hell of a job, big portion of Samsung's ex haters are liking the new S6, while the vast majority of Samsung fans are sticking with them for another year even those who aren't fond of ditching micro sd. Btw, Samsung ditched micro sd slots not because they couldn't fit it into the S6 you fool, they did so to make sure micro sd cards won't slow down the phone, like it is happening with my Note 4 and my 64GB Sandisk Class 10. I can't live without my micro sd card for now since the Note 4 is only available in 32gb variant, but with bigger memory options on the S6, i can live without it very easily.

I'm not calling you out specifically, but this is the kind of backtracking that confuses everyone, myself included. Note 4 owners say the phone's a beast, fast, and completely lag free, but here you are admitting that it noticeably slows down with a memory card, so much so that Samsung might have to toss a favorite hardware feature to fix it. And when the iPhone 6/Plus official pricing was announced, claws came out with accusations that Apple was ripping off all their customers with the expensive extra $200 for 128GB, but now most of you guys are just fine with shelling out the same $100 or $200 for the S6. And on top of that, you're all fine with paying another $100-$150 for two pretty useless (and ugly in my humble opinion) curves on the S6 Edge. It's like we're living in the twilight zone. iPhone users have had their fair share of hypocrisy (i.e. bigger screen sizes) but you guys definitely take the cake. I'm just saying, if having a removable battery and affordable expandable storage was never that important, why for all these years pretend that it is??? Just wait, by the end of April we're all getting an earful about how any phone without wireless charging is completely dead and useless.

It's not just the Note 4, ANY phone will slow down with big micro sd cards. The base model for the iPhone 6 is 16gb, while the S6's is 32GB. Big difference buddy ;)
