GALAXY S 4 Scores High in Benchmarks Even with Snapdragon 600 Inside

The handset managed to score 21,089 points in AnTuTu

When unveiling the new GALAXY S 4 smartphone on March 14, South Korean mobile phone maker Samsung announced that it would hit shelves in some markets with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 600 processor inside, and benchmarking results for this device flavor are now available.

Users in the United States and Canada are among those who will receive this GALAXY S 4 model when it becomes available for purchase in late April, and they will enjoy a nice boost in performance compared to last year’s Galaxy S III, it seems.

According to a recent article on laptopmag, Samsung’s new flagship Android device is capable of reaching 21,000 points in ANTuTu, which marks nice performance increase of Galaxy S III’s average score of 16,300.

Given that last year’s flagship smartphone came to the market with a 1.5GHz dual-core Qualcomm chipset and that the new one sports a 1.9GHz quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 600 CPU, the boost in benchmark score does not come as a surprise.

What should be mentioned, however, is the fact that the new device can perform better than other quad-core devices as well, including the 1.6GHz quad-core Exynos-based Galaxy Note II, and even the 1.5GHz quad-core Qualcomm-powered Nexus 4.

GALAXY S 4’s screen is said to be brighter than Galaxy S III’s, with 258 lux (compared to 213 lux), and even than that of Galaxy Note II, which sports a 240 lux rating, said news site claims.

Additionally, a recent post on MobileSyrup claims that the new Samsung smartphone can perform very well in Sunspider Javascript benchmark, with a result of 822.6ms, said to be one of the fastest seen on mobile devices.

With a larger screen compared to Galaxy S III, a faster, more powerful processor and a wide range of new software features packed inside, GALAXY S 4 seems set to prove an even better seller than last year’s flagship.
