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

Exynos 7420 vs Snapdragon 810 vs Apple A8 benchmark - Baraka wins!
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.
