Samsung has finally announced its new flagship smartphone, Galaxy S3 and the dust seems to have settled down. The device boasts a 4.8in HD Super AMOLED display with 1280 x 720p and a powerful Exynos 4 quad-core processor. It is expected to battle iPhone with its massive touchscreen and faster processor. It packs an eight megapixels rear-facing camera with auto-focus, LED flash, touch focus, face and smile detection and image stabilisation. It might have disappointed some ech fans who would have expected a 12 megapixels rear-camera.
The device allows users to record video of 1080p and offers a secondary camera of 1.9 megapixels for video calling. It is powered by a 1.4GHz Cortex-A9 quad-core CPU and Exynos 4212 chipset.
The recent benchmark test which was conducted by Anandtech proves the Galaxy S3 as the powerful device.
Vellamo benchmark will evaluate browser performance on Android based devices. It is developed by Qualcomm Innovation Center. Higher is better. While, the AT&T HTC One X beats all the devices, the Galaxy S3 is in the second position and outshines all the other devices.
The GLBenchmark 2.1 measures various graphics as well as computation of the device. "What's particularly insane is that Samsung is able to deliver better performance than the iPhone 4S, the previous king-of-the-GPU-hill in these tests," claims Anandtech.
RightWare Basemark ES 2.0
The Basemark ES 2.0 benchmark measures the device's performance of Graphical User Interfaces (GUI). Higher is better. Both benchmarks are reportedly v-sync limited.
