Samsung Galaxy S5: early benchmarks (Quadrant, AnTuTu, GFXBench, Basemark X)

44

So, what do you do with an ultra-powerful Android smartphone that suddenly falls in your hands? Quite simple - you run some performance benchmarks to see just how much of a speed demon it is. Well, you can imagine that is just what we did with the Samsung Galaxy S5 while we were innocently putting it through its paces at MWC 2014. We've run some of the most popular benchmark apps out there, including Quadrant, AnTuTu, GFXBench and Basemark X. Unsurprisingly, the Galaxy S5 acheived amazing scores - check out the video above to see the details.

Before you hit that play button and start enjoying the performance prowess of this handset, though, please keep in mind that this is just a prototype version of the Galaxy S5 we're using, so the retail version of the phone might easily score even better than this!
