Samsung Galaxy S II HD LTE benchmark tests

Samsung Galaxy S II HD LTE benchmark tests
On paper, there are people who are naturally going to be impressed to find the Samsung Galaxy S II HD LTE packing a 1.5GHz dual-core Qualcomm Snapdragon MSM8660 processor – very similar to the one we’ve seen already in use by T-Mobile’s version of the Galaxy S II. Others though, would probably prefer seeing a higher clocked dual-core Samsung Exynos processor instead, but seeing that this baby is packing support for 4G LTE, it simply has to side with Qualcomm’s CPU.

Out of the box, the handset is capable of executing most basic tasks, such as opening apps, kinetic scrolling, and pinch zooming will little problems at all. Furthermore, it delivers a great amount of fluidity while navigating through its various homescreens with a static wallpaper. However, after activating a live wallpaper, our spirits are dampened somewhat as it exhibits some bouts of lag and slowdown with its response. Furthermore, it doesn’t quite accurately track the movement as good as it did with a static live wallpaper. Again, we’ve seen this already with T-Mobile’s version of the Galaxy S II, but it’s not something that’s particularly evident in the Exynos packing versions of the handset. Nevertheless, the slowdown isn’t entirely a debilitating thing, but rather, it’s merely an annoyance that softens its overall processing prowess.



Moving on to the fun stuff, the benchmark results are undeniably stunning and catapults the handset easily into the upper echelon of things, but deep down in our minds, we can only contain our adulation for the simple reason that we’ll be seeing more quad-core packing devices very soon. So here are the results that we’re able to get:

  • Quadrant: 3,300 to 3,777
  • AnTutu: 6,574
  • Linpack: 78.413 MFLOPS at 2.15 seconds
  • Vellamo: 919
  • Neocore: 57.8 FPS
