Samsung Galaxy S III rocks Quadrant, AnTuTu and NenaMark 2 benchmark tests

Samsung Galaxy S III rocks Quadrant, AnTuTu and NenaMark 2 benchmark tests
One of the most debated features in the long-anticipated Samsung Galaxy S III is the processor - the quad-core Exynos 4412 processor, to be exact. We've seen all kinds of rumors and speculation surrounding this topic, which makes us think that you guys are really into that silicon part of life. 

We've been writing about the Exynos processor prowess all night, but now we are posting our own impressions to back it up. While we were checking out the Galaxy S III for the first time, we made the extra effort to install a few benchmark applications in order to see just how good that fancy new processor is.

We run our standard set - Quadrant Standard, AnTuTu and NenaMark 2. In the video below you'll find all the details, as well as the results from our tests. Anyone wanting to try and guess how the Galaxy S III scored? (Hint: It ROCKZ!)

You want an 800$ phone so made from glass that shatters from something almost as easy as dropping it on carpet?

really, you would rather buy a lesser phone, because its made out of tin and glass???? how rediculous. Yea, im sad by the lack of ceramic, but plastic is not only light weight, its a heck of a lot more durable than glass or tin like HTC and Apple uses. It doesnt cost that much less than glass or tin either.. the "premium" part is all in your mind. Besides, 4 of 5 will cover it up with a plastic case anyways, so thats pointless to care that much about it. you buy it for the hardware and for the experience, who cares what the outside is made out of as long as its durable

Give HTC some credit, they use aluminum, not tin.

premium would be titanium and crystal. plastic tin aluminum and glass are common every day cheap ass materials. there is nothing premium about them. between the group, good plastic is the most durable and lightest. nothing to do with fanboy, everything to do with reality. try it some time.

And I kill the environment with plastic. Great way to be inspired by nature.

I know, it's not like you can go to the plastic plant & get some fresh plastic. Also doesn't it take like 10,000 years or so for plastic to finally biodegrade? If they are going to tout the nature thing with the Samsung Galaxy S III maybe they should have used the rumored ceramic backing or even went metal, since metal is found "naturally" on this great planet of ours! lol

you kill the environment with everything you do. ever write on paper? that was a tree? drive your car? thats made with tons of toxic stubstances, as well as it runs on one. find me a cheap, durable, 100% environmentally friendly material to use and we can talk. You want a phone made out of recycled egg cartons?

you also fly in it and drive in vehicles made of a large percentage of aluminum.

that is true, but that is aircraft quality aluminum, not phone quality. there is a difference :)

So if Samsung offers you a a ceramic made Phone and a Plastic made phone with everything else same which one would you buy ???

I like Samsung, but I have to say what happened to their design department??? This is meant to be a Flagship product yet it looks like a mid tier phone. Yes it's powerful and super fast but if I am going to spend hundreds of dollars on it I expect it to look the part. This looks like your standard Samsung plastic box. Using a Pentile screen is also unforgivable, so disappointed with Samsung. Kudos to HTC for going outside their comfort zone and coming out with a fresh cool looking design in HTC One X.

I'm sure Samsung must have considered different materials and plastic was chosen for durability and weight (lighter). Pentile is not even discernible at 720p unless you use your phone with a magnifying glass, I can't even see the sub-pixels on my Samsung Captivate (480x800 pentile) and I have perfect vision so IMO your whining for nothing. i'm not in love with the design either but if I could afford to buy it I would in a heartbeat. The One X software has minor bugs such as the browser, guaranteed the software of the GS3 will be coded properly

Samsung and properly coded software, yeah right!

even I giggled at that. love Samsung for the hardware, but their software generally lacks. of course they do have the king of modders, cyanogen himself, working for them now so it might be different this time.

look is a matter of opininon,i actually think it looks good and think it will look even better in person...i think its one of those things that look better i person.reason i say this is all the people that have actually had an hands on with it say it looks nice and feels great in the hand and the people moaning about the design are the ones who have yet to hold one(myself included) i do think the s2 is a good design but i always wished it was more curvy so am more than happy with the curves of the s3...also the plastic used in the s3 is also polycarbonate like the one x and lumia,the only difference is samsung have put a gloss finish on theres.

hmm... i am not sure.. it just looks like tmobile galaxy s2, which people think was the best look wise gs2.... anyways looks of this are not grt... nor were the looks of gs2.... sensation and lg thrill always look better than samsung phones

8. Adithya7184 unregistered

that's why i like samsung very much. dont mind weather its a plastic or glass, htc must learn from samsung to make a powerful device. a beautiful design will not make a powerful device. Kudos to samsung GS3...powerful and innovative phone ever....Take my money....

look at all that I/O in quadrant. OI. i wish there was a way to take out the I/O test so you could test the important parts of the processor without the blue fluff. from the looks of it, it wins in every category, but id still rather see it without the I/O.

lol 11k on antutu that is not that much better then the T3. So according to you it is only slightly better then the T3 on the One X

quit trolling me until you have something of Merritt to say. its bad enough that I have to deal with taco's ignorant trolling on me all day, don't add to it. save the benchmark score comparison for retail release. never trust prerelease benchmark ...they will either go up like the sgs1 and sgs2 did or they might go down (unlikely) like the s4 did between its reference device to real life.

29. ngo2dd

So what they have time to cheat on their score? Face it the 4412 is better then the T3 but not a whole at better maybe up to 15% but not more. Talking about Merritt, you are the biggest samsung fanboy here, you troll a hell lot more then I do. HTC, and with snapdragon. You are the one going off topic. The S4 reference and real life are very similar.

Why dont you pull up the specs and tell me that again about the S4.. the qualcomm reference benchmarks vs the OneS/X I have to "face" that the 4412 is the best chip out there.. just like I was saying it would be? Wow.. man.. thats gonna hurt. Again, wait till commercial release to make comparisons. Otherwise you have a high likihood of having egg on your face when its over. Commercial results are almost always different from prelaunch results. And irregardless, the S3 has a lot going on at any given time than the One series, with that "natural interface" junk always leaving the FFC on to watch you and more... and it still won. Just chillax. The SGS3 has already taken the crown anyways. Cant wait another week or 3 for official commercial resuts?
