Samsung Infuse 4G Benchmark Tests
Sporting a 1.2GHz Hummingbird processor and all, which is a slight step up over its Samsung Galaxy S brethren, there is no arguing that the Samsung Infuse 4G will be at the center of attention for those AT&T customers itching to get a tasting of the impending smartphone. Conversely though, some might be hesitant about picking one up solely because it’s still a single core chipset, as opposed to the dual-core CPU powering the Samsung Galaxy S II model.

Now that we have the device in our hands, it’s only natural for us to quickly put it through some benchmark tests to gauge how it compares to the competition out there. Before getting into the nitty-gritty stuff, it’s worth noting that these benchmark tests don’t necessarily portray the true potential on the handset’s performance. However, in the short time of just using the handset, we can safely say that it operates at a reasonable rate, without much slowdown or lag in its performance.

Running the Quadrant benchmark test first, we’re rather appalled by the results to tell you the truth, but then again, it could be due to the fact that it’s not optimized fully to test out the chipset of the Samsung Infuse 4G. In fact, it was able to only achieve scores around the 1,122 mark – with 1,153 being the highest that we’re able to get so far. At that mark, it falls behind the pact of some of its well-known rivals – like the HTC EVO 4G, Motorola DROID X, and Google Nexus One. Additionally, we ran the AnTutu Benchmark, where it produced a total score of 2,263. Again, the results are unflattering to say the least, but overlooking it all, we’re still satisfied with the handset’s normal operation.

Check out the results below!

Underwelmed. $199 on contract? I don't think so.

Not for a single core 1.2. Bad form samsung.... I'll wait for the Sensation or EVO 3D.

Wow that's bad, it's not better than the original Droid X benchmark. So the moral is the X is the best.

it's probably the same case with the Droid Charge as well.

Why would they put this phone out shortly before the Galaxy S 2? Doesn't make much sense at all. Compared to the S-2, this is a mid-range handset, at best, with only slight improvements over the original Galaxy S Captivate.

Other have commented on Sammies file system in that it sucks. Does this phone need the same Dev upgrade to allow it to perform? My guess at this time is that this phone needs some instant Dev love to make it shine, or maybe it really is a bad phone.

Looks like I'm swapping over to htc processors come the next upgrade... That's just plain mean... That's a slap in the face...

The infuse obviously still uses samsung's RFS file system. With an EXT4 filesystem comversion it will be in the 1800-2400 range. Its running an overclocked Humminbird chipset which is the strongest single core chipset you can get in a cell phone.
The droidX just uses a standard snapdragon which is way behind a hummingbird. Dont let the quadrant tests fool you.. they are not an indicator of performance and are every easily skewed by I/O tests that the snapdragons get a higher score on, though they score way less in every other category.

Bottom line, its going to be the fastest single core phone there is, regardless of what the quadrants say.. and its got the biggest screen of any phone. If you are on ATT and were looking at a captivate, id say get this instead.

Or wait a few months for the SGS2.

Exactly, thank you. People, it's stupid to make buying decisions based on a quadrant score.

Everything that I've read so far about this phone states that there is no lag or slow downs when operating it. And that is what's most important with regards to performance.

U know the droif x has a texas instruments processor right. No snapdragon. And also the omap 3460 is much faster than the humingbird. Bu_t the humingbird can do alot more frames per second which makes it a good gaming processor

4g man.. u just proved my point. The omap has a huge leap in i/o, just like the snapdragon. Neither are as good as a hummingbird when it comes to polygon pushing and rendering power.. which as graphically intensive as phones are now.. is one of the biggest categories.

majority of the user won't be aware of RFS to EXT4 or EXT2 conversion. it is the out-of-box experience that matters. ATT should have just let the SGS2 out and not position Infuse as their top dog. oh, never mind, SGS2 will still crawl on the ATT's network.

just goes to show u that without apple AT&T is only a second rate company.
Wait until the Charge is released. and BTW the S2 will be 299.99 no doubt.

Has anyone noticed that the Nexus One is always on top when they do these benchmark tests? I'm starting to think that whoever programmed that app is a little biased.

Quadrant is highly I/O speed biased - most users don't rely on this to this extent when the phone is used normally.

Try running Smartbench 2011 instead.

samsung was just about to blast off with galaxy s phones but then updating issues came and they didnt blast, months pass, and their ready to blast off again but then they exploded because they chose to stay with single core processors...Samsung your turning into motorola.

you do realize that the SGS2 is a dual core exynos clocked at 1.2ghz right? it blows everything else out of the water. This is a filler phone and it will be a mid range phone shortly. Its ment for people that want the big screen and use it for normal things, not to get the highest quad score.

Most people outside of these sites dont know a dual core from a ferarri.

My Apologies But when you said Quad phone i was a bit turned on. So it means It Can Use GSM(T-Mobiles and At&t) and CDMA?
