Samsung Galaxy S4 Scores High in Benchmarks Even with Qualcomm Snapdragon 600 Inside

When unveiling the new Galaxy S4 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 S4 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 S4’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 S4 seems set to prove an even better seller than last year’s flagship.

Apple Answers Samsung Galaxy S4 with New iPhone Campaign

Apple has released a new iPhone campaign to combat Samsung’s new Galaxy S4 handset, touting the flagship features that have made iPhones the top choice among millions of customers worldwide.

“What makes an iPhone unlike anything else? Maybe it’s that it lets you do so many things. Or that it lets you do so many things so easily. Those are two reasons iPhone owners say they love their iPhone. But there are many others as well,” reads the advert. Apple proceeds to mention that its iPhones have received eight straight J.D. Power and Associates awards for customer satisfaction, as well as the attractive design which also makes the phone thin and light.

The Cupertino giant then touts: the Retina display; battery life; the powerful yet power-efficient A6 chip; ultrafast wireless; the cameras; the 800,000 apps on iTunes; iOS 6; Siri; iCloud; and support from real people. Visit Apple’s site to check out the new campaign in full.

Qualcomm Confirms Samsung Galaxy S4 Ships with Snapdragon 600 in Select Markets

Samsung announced a few days ago its upcoming Galaxy S 4 will be equipped with its own Exynos 5 Octa chipset, which has been confirmed to feature two quad-core processors.

However, the South Korean company also stated the Galaxy S 4 will use a different Qualcomm chipset in some markets like United States and Canada. Obviously, everyone though the smartphone will be equipped with the Snapdragon 600 chipset, but some were hoping the Galaxy S 4 would be shipped with a much better Snapdragon 800 CPU. Today, Tim McDonough, Vice President, Marketing, Qualcomm Mobile & Computing, announced to the world the next-generation Galaxy S smartphone will use the company's Snapdragon 600 chipset. “It appears Samsung has done it again. They just launched the Galaxy S 4 , the latest in the very successful Galaxy S line of smartphones. The Galaxy S 4 is packed with cool new features that promise to deliver innovative smartphone experiences to its users. 

We are proud to say that the newest Snapdragon 600 processor is at the heart of the Galaxy S 4 in select regions, providing the efficient processing and cutting-edge features needed to deliver these kinds of innovative smartphone user experiences,” said McDonough. As expected, Qualcomm's chipset inside the Galaxy S 4 will feature a quad-core Krait processor clocked at 1.9 GHz for fast, efficient asynchronous processing. Other goodies packed inside Qualcomm's Snapdragon 600 chipset include:

  • LTE Cat 3 network support;
  • 2 GB LPDDR3 RAM;
  • Hexagon QDSP6 for ultra-low power audio playback and video enhancements;
  • Speed enhanced Adreno 320 GPU for high-end 3D graphics and compute processing;
  • 1080p HD video capture and playback;
  • HD multichannel sound with DTS-HD and Dolby Digital Plus audio;
  • OpenGL ES 3.0 conformant.

In the same piece of news, Qualcomm's Snapdragon 600 chipset will be integrated in the upcoming HTC One and LG Optimus G Pro smartphones as well. Which one will you choose?
