Samsung Galaxy S4 Named Fastest Smartphone Yet

The folks of Android Authority did some benchmark testing on the Samsung Galaxy S4, the flagship smartphone that Sammy launched last week and came up with impressive results. Those include impressive scores and the folks of Primate Labs, makers of GeekBench have confirmed the performance of the newcomer.

They compared the results of the S4 in GeekBench with the ones of other smartphones. The Galaxy S4 was at the top of the charters with a score of 3163, while the HTC One only scored 2687 points in the same tests. Keep in mind that we’re talking about the Qualcomm Snapdragon 600 1.9 GHz Galaxy S4, so it has the same CPU version as the HTC One, at least in the US version. There will also be an Exynos 5 Octa version, but that one hasn’t been thoroughly benchmarked yet.

What does a high score mean? Well, it means the Galaxy S4 will run smoothly, perform tasks faster and also… use up more battery. Luckily there’s a 2600 mAh battery on board to stop that from happening in an exaggerate manner. Another interesting fact is that the Samsung Galaxy S4 is about twice as fast as the high end handsets from last year. It has a double score of both the Galaxy S3 and the iPhone 5. If that’s not power, nothing is…
