You probably know that there are two version of Samsung Galaxy S4, depending on the processor. One is powered by Samsung’s Exynos 5 Octa and the other model sports Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 600. Also, you also may know that the eight-cored variant is more powerful, but today we’ll see how much powerful.
There is a new benchmark test posted by Sam Mobile, which shows us exactly how fast is the flagship’s CPU. The tested Galaxy S4 (GT-I9500) features the latest firmware installed, and the score is even higher than the previous one.
First of all, I said that the Galaxy S4 comes in two versions. Actually, there are three of them if we add the one that will be sold in South Korea, which packs the same Exynos 5 Octa processor but it’s clocked at 1.8 GHz, instead of 1.6 GHz. The Korean version has the model number SVH-E300S.
Anyway, the smartphone put to the test is the GT-I9500 and, as I said, it managed to obtain a better result than in the previous benchmark test. The first test was made in AnTuTu and the Galaxy S4 Exynos 5 Octa scored 27417, but now it managed to surpass that number and scored 28018. This is the highest score ever obtained by a smartphone and it easily beast the Snapdragon 600 variant of the Galaxy S4, as well as all competitors.
Again, this is the GT-I9500 version, and it’s obvious that the Korean model would do even better. Unfortunately, the Korean Galaxy S4 hasn’t been tested yet. However, in real-world usage this kind of difference won’t be so noticeable, except if you are a hardcore user and use applications that need a lot of power. Another benefit that comes along with the Exynos 5 Octa CPU is that it uses less battery life than the Qualcom Snapdragon 600.
Unfortunately, not all of us will be able to buy this beast because the Exynos 5 Octa processor will be featured by only a third of the Galaxy S4 shipped units, at least at first.
