Samsung Galaxy Note benchmarked, fast and furious
When facts talk, you know what walks, so the benchmark tests of the upcoming Samsung Galaxy Note Incredible Hulk of a phone are the true tests of its pimped up dual-core 1.4GHz Exynos SoC.
The Samsung Galaxy S II and its versions provide the best performance/battery life ratios in the Android world, as it manages to blow past the dual-core competition, and still have decent time between charges.
In this case, the Galaxy Note should fare even better in benchmarks, provided that the CPU has been overclocked with a 0.2GHz step. A set of those synthetic measurements of mobile silicon capabilities proves exactly that - the Samsung Galaxy Note manages to beat not only the HTC Sensation, based on Qualcomm's Snapdragon S3, and the LG Optimus 3D, based on TI's OMAP4 processor families, but also its own older brother the Galaxy S II.
The only test where the Samsung Galaxy Note gave way to the Galaxy S II is in NenaMark 2's graphics performance results, which is explicable considering all those 800x1280 pixels on the gargantuan 5.3" display that have to be filled. Even at 30 frames per second it is a pretty svelte showoff. We are especially pleased with the SunSpider results, indicating that browser performance could be even smoother than in the Samsung Galaxy S II, which is already crazy quick.
