Do you ever wondering which one is faster: Samsung Galaxy S3 or Apple iPhone 5? Just after few days of iPhone 5′s launch, CNET reported that the iPhone 5 scores higher in benchmarks then the Samsung Galaxy S III. This news came to as a shock for all Samsung fans, as GS3 despite having Quad-Core processor couldn’t match iPhone’s dual-core processor. It was also confirmed through multiple benchmarks that, with its custom ARMv7 dual-core chip dynamically clocked between 750MHz to 1.2GHz, Apple’s iPhone 5 is indeed the fastest smartphone available in the market today. It bests every other high-end Android smartphone (Galaxy S III, One X, Galaxy Nexus, you name it!); doesn’t matter if they come with four cores or are clocked at higher frequencies. Is that true or fake?
Previously it was reported that Samsung Galaxy S III scored 1588 on geekbench and the iPhone 5 scored 1602 but both the scores are wrong!. In reality the iPhone 5 scores 1590 instead of 1602 and Galaxy S3 scores an impressive 1766 instead of 1588. Here’s the result:
It seems like Galaxy S3 remains at the top of Smartphone chain at the moment. Also Galaxy S3 is yet to receive Jelly Bean update that is supposed to improve GS3′s performance even more!
Final words: Just keep this in mind, though: these are just benchmarks. Real-life performance of the Galaxy S III vs. the iPhone 5 – taking photographs, browsing the web, sending and receiving texts and calls – isn’t noticeably different.
