Samsung Galaxy S 4 scores twice the iPhone 5 at benchmarks, beats all other Androids, too

Geekbench is a cross-platform benchmarking tool that allows you to compare the chipsets of computer gear across the operating system spectrum, and the first results from the Samsung Galaxy S 4 are in.

Needless to say, since the S 4 for US carriers is running the latest generation Snapdragon chip, clocked at the respectable 1.9 GHz, it beat all the current flagships by a large margin, save for the HTC One, which has the same chipset, but clocked slightly lower at 1.7 GHz.

What is also interesting is that the Galaxy S 4 is almost twice as fast as the iPhone 5, which has cores clocked much lower, though, at 1.3 GHz. We ran the same test on our office Optimus G Pro, which has an S600 chipset, too, running at 1.7 GHz, and got a 2878 points result.
