Live picture leaks of the Samsung Galaxy S7 edge scoring 134K on AnTuTu?

This morning, an image showing the back of the Samsung Galaxy S7 leaked, confirming the nearly flush rear camera lens that we've been expecting. Now, a live image of the Samsung Galaxy S7 edge has surfaced, revealing the front of the device in use. On the screen, we can see that the handset has been put through the AnTuTu benchmark test and scored an incredible 134,704.

While U.S. and Chinese consumers will be receiving the version of the phone packed with the Snapdragon 820 chipset, the rest of the world will have the Exynos 8890 SoC under the hood. It isn't certain which chip is powering the phone in the photo.

The Galaxy S7 edge will feature a 5.5-inch Super AMOLED display, carrying a 1440 x 2560 QHD resolution. 4GB of RAM will be inside. On the back, we expect to find a 12MP BRITECELL camera. A 3600mAh battery is expected to keep the lights on.

Both the Samsung Galaxy S7 and the Samsung Galaxy S7 edge are due to be unveiled on February 21st at the Samsung Unpacked 2016 event that is being held the day before the MWC opens in Barcelona.

While the photo looks genuine, we still suggest taking the image (and the AnTuTu score) with the proverbial grain of salt.

I'd rather plastic vs metal personally. Would just mean no reception issues. Now glass vs metal is a different story. But I always rock a thin case

I don't mind plastic either but it has to look good. I'm not liking the look of the leaked images very much. I would rather see carbon fiber or something like the Turbo. The Note5 actually looks good as is. Maybe they are going to do the plastic flexible screen that's shatter proof and that's why they don't think they need it bordered with metal. And if so maybe the back is the same material.

plastic is better gives us grip and interchangeable also think about it removable means battery and sd card swap

You can't have wireless charging with metal. You need plastic or glass.

False. You can have wireless charging with a metal case, you just have to cover ti with a special case.

Why are there a lot of hypocrisy when it comes to benchmarks? Android fans now shouting beast after complaining that antutu was unreliable and Apple fans were going crazy about the antutu benchmark of the iPhone, now when they see this it's just "numbers on the screen"? Let me add one more for fun: does this benchmark prove that antutu has killed major bugs since the 6s benchmark?

There are lot of things that make this a beast more than the iPhone crap. First of all, the specs inside make it a beast, whether good specs is not all that matters, it is there. We know that the way Android is coded and the way it is heavy makes it run slower than the iOS. Supposed this phone runs with iOS, what do you think would be the AnTuTu benchmark scores? Comparing iOS and Android AnTuTu benchmarks is just way stupid. If people complains about the AnTuTu benchmarks in the icrap 6s, it is because we still don't know what make the mid range icrap get those scores. As far as Android is concerned, this phone is a beast. Sorry if that makes you mad.

People have said the test puts more focus on single core performance which makes it less relevant to Android. Most apps on Android use multiple cores so testing single core performance doesn't make sense.

It mean something apart fro the software is not the same for iOS but when you look at the score and the screen res (big thing in this case) and it makes the CPU look very good, if the iPhone/iOS was running this CPU over the A9 the score will have been very big like 160000

The score doesn't mean anything to me and I havent commented on it. Here is what the problem is. The AnTuTu software has been tailored to work very well with iOS. Its basic code allows it to test any Android phone, but the tests are not designed to deal with how different Android hardware is. For example, its like Windows Drivers vs Retail drivers. Windows Drivers are design to provide the basic function of a device. So a video card for exampel, a Windows driver will ensure it provides stable and working video. But your OEM's retails drivers provide the extra support specific to the functions of the graphics card. This is how many benchmark tools are. They use basic driver code which isn't taking in consideration the difference in how Samsung used ARM references in their Exynos vs how Qualcomm may use ARM's reference designs vs how Apple may also use their referenced designs. A perfect example of that? Take you Windows PC and install Microsoft's generic GPU drivers and do a benchmark and then remove them and install your GPU's native driver from the manufacturer and see how different the score is. This is the same that is happening with mobile bench-marking tools.

They're just numbers on a screen.

Android fanboys were saying that when iPhone was winning in benchmarks. Hypocrisy is in fanboys on BOTH sides. smh

My 6s Plus scored close to that just the other day but yeah it is a beast to get such a score with a QHD screen.

qhd does strain a phone when benchmarking

Yes, indeed. But Antutu graphical tests are done in 1080p in all the phones to keep things fair.

Wrong. There is on-screen and off-screen in the same test.

62. Rafael1703

Posts: 20; Member since: Apr 22, 2014

Yes, and the on-screen tests run at 1080p

63. Arch_Fiend

The graphics test do run in 1080p but the pixels of the screen are still on and affect the score just look at this. Manhattan is ran in 1080p and T-rex in 720p but that doesn't matter as the QHD resolution of the screen(Note5) despite the render resolution of the test being lower still greatly affects the FPS/GPU score. The resolution being rendered and the resolution of screen both affect the score in any gpu test, screen resolution it even affects off screen but only slightly.

On-screen runs at 1440p...

Whatever you say.

83. TechieXP1969

No the off=screen test do. The on-screen tests can only run at the resolution of the screen itself. That is why most tests are done off-screen, so that the test results are fair. I think I'm right, but someone will correct me if I'm not.

what about the 6s with a 720p screen ??? shure it will do better compared to 2k screens.
