Samsung Galaxy Note II vs Galaxy S III vs LG Optimus 4X HD benchmark comparison

Samsung Galaxy Note II vs Galaxy S III vs LG Optimus 4X HD benchmark comparison
The new Samsung Galaxy Note II features a quad-core Exynos 4412 processor with ARM Mali-400 graphics subsystem, which is clocked a step higher, at 1.6GHz, compared to the same chip we find in the Galaxy S III, which is clocked at 1.4GHz.

We wanted to check out quickly who's boss when it comes to cold hard benchmarking, and staged a three-way fight with the other quad-core processor on the market - NVIDIA's Tegra 3, as found in the LG Optimus 4X HD.

Now, this is not quite the fair fight, considering that there is a generational gap in the 32nm manufacturing of Samsung's Exynos 4412 processor, and the 40nm process used for Tegra 3, but LG's handset held its own in Quadrant and AnTuTu just fine. It bungled the Vellamo benchmark, which is admittedly done for testing Snapdragon processors, and favors instruction sets like the ones in the Exynos family, too. 

The LG Optimus 4X HD also fared much worse than Samsung's handsets in the browsing benchmarks, though, which has something to do not only with the processors, but also with the heavy optimizations in Javascript rendering that Samsung introduced with its homebrew Android browsers since the launch of the S III. Overall, the Note II maintained a lead throughout the four benchmark tests we put those three handsets through, and in browsing benchies its performance is neck and neck with the sets measured from the iPhone 5, making those two the fastest handsets for browsing out there.

Honestly, I would be more interested in seeing a comparison of the Exynos, in the Note II, and the new LG, with the quad core Qualcomm.

I have a feeling that the Qualcom chip will be faster, but I am interested in seeing just how much faster. Has this test been performed?

LOL.. How did u(PA) guys suddenly realize that there is also a quad core out there somewhere called the LG 4X HD ?
It has arguably been the most ignored flagship device by the writers as well as the readers

Why didn't LG make the new Nexus like the Optimus 4X HD or switch body, that a beautiful phone

i agree 100 percent but it might have to do with cost
no such thing as a perfect phone yet

My stock One X Quadrant score is 6000+
Antutu - 12500.

Their just benchmarks. Optimus 4X & One X have The TEGRAZONE which is never included in the pros.

Sorry but you have space in the shot for another phone. Give us 4.0.4 One X or One X+ :)

Why don't we see a side by side stats comparison in Anandtech between the LG Optimus G and the iPhone 5. They compared the iPhone 5 to every other Android device in their iPhone comparison yet they seem to have omitted it in this comparison.

Htc one x + seem can beat these 3 monsters because sense 4.5 is the best .

I want to see how this Xiaomi MI 2 will perform on these benchmarks

Another reason why the Note II is the one.

no man you're saying alot! LOL im with cha on this one haha Htc is badass plain n simple..

but also they're comparing this LG to samsung and it doesnt EVEN HAVE JELLYBEAN! But look how well the optimus held up in quadrant, and antutu with a tegra 3 chip and its only on ICS.......those results would be alot closer if jellybean was on board for the Optimus 4x HD

"Jus sayin"

And as far as I know, the RAM on HOX+ is clocked higher than the rest of the so it makes it faster and better even compared to 2GB ones. With the battery life modifications HTC made, HOX lasts longer then 4X and already achieves aprox. 10 hours of talktime. HOX+ is suppoose to last 50% longer :) Good battery life, powerful CPU/GPU, great screen and superb design.... and don't forget TegraZone and PlayStation certification :D

this comparison is not right!!! my SGS3 runs the banchmark 2x faster than the one in this video. probably he didnt clean all the running programs. NOT FAIR
