We can say that Samsung Galaxy S4 is one of the best smartphones delivered in 2013 and there is no doubt that it will be popular. Quite similar to previous generations of Galaxy smartphone flagships this one will also bring great sale results to the company and it is interesting to see how it will go on benchmarks.
The Samsung Galaxy S4 runs a Qualcomm Snapdragon 600 quad-core chip clocked at 1.9GHz with 2GB of RAM and an Adreno 320 graphics processing unit (GPU). There are other handsets hitting the market with this chip (though few of them clocked as high as 1.9GHz), including the HTC One, Asus Padfone Infinity and LG’s Optimus G Pro (though this isn’t available in the UK yet).
According to the benchmarks the Samsung Galaxy S4 outperforms most of these and the vast majority of other Android phones. However, it’s interesting to note that the HTC One, which clocks in at 1.7GHz, actually scored higher in some tests – notably Quadrant.
Still, generally speaking it is without a doubt one of the fastest phones around and should deliver like-for-like performance with the HTC One and other Snapdragon 600 rivals, which are sitting pretty at the top of the high-performance pile at present.
The Galaxy S4 is a 4G capable phone and testing the modem chip in SpeedTest showed a fast ping of 47 milliseconds, a download speed of 18.73 megabits per second and an upload speed of 17.56 megabits per second. This is very good by home broadband standards, showing 4G has the capability to deliver a wireless mobile internet experience on a par with hard-wired solutions.
As well as general performance the Galaxy2014 S4 is looking like a good prospect for gaming, not least because of the huge, crystal clear display, but also as 3DMark, a gaming benchmark suite, cited the Galaxy20 S4 as ‘one of the most powerful devices around.You can expect to get very fast,fluid gaming from Samsung’s latest flagship.
