Samsung’s Galaxy Mega Plus has a quad-core Snapdragon 400 processor

Samsung recently announced the Galaxy Mega Plus, and at first glance, we were hard-pressed to find exactly what changes it brought compared to the original Galaxy Mega 5.8. It turned out that the Mega Plus brought along an upgrade in processor, going from a dual-core CPU to a quad-core one, but Samsung made no mention of the chipset it is using. Well, that mystery has now been solved – an AnTuTu benchmark listing has revealed that the Galaxy Mega Plus is powered by the Snapdragon 400 SoC, clocked at 1.4GHz.

The Snapdragon 400 is a considerable upgrade over the Broadcom chip used in the Galaxy Mega 5.8, and it shows in the benchmark. The Mega Plus was 42 percent more powerful than the Mega 5.8, and also a tad better than the Moto G (though you’ll still find Motorola’s handset offers better real-life performance as it runs on stock Android without any custom UI and bloat slowing it down), which should offer an improved user experience. However, it’s still unclear if this upgraded Galaxy Mega 5.8 will be making its way to markets outside China; hopefully it will, so that consumers in other regions can also gain access to a mid-range phone that offers a gigantic screen that is now faster than Samsung’s earlier offering.

    I appreciate sammobile people for relentless efforts to share samsung stuffs. But:
    (though you’ll still find Motorola’s handset offers better real-life performance as it runs on stock Android without any custom UI and bloat slowing it down)
    by putting it in the bracket you just compared about a newly introduced phone to a Non-Samsung phone which to me was not necessary. In that way every samsung announced phone is considered to be a slower one than their opponents. Even this phone can be bloatware free and unskinned by rooting and CyanogenMod. You do know that, right?
    We expect news first, then the author’s insightful thought as a summary. Not opinion in the middle of the news. And I acknowledge you people do that for most of the time. But, this was not expected.

      Also, the Galaxy Mega has nothing to do with Moto G. That massive 5.8 display appeals to a differente market. Moto G is value for money, MEga goes for a big screen and mid range price.

      Rooting and putting custom ROMs is not something the average consumer resorts to, so it is totally meaningless to mention it here as a way to make the phone faster. I simply mentioned the Moto G because the benchmark compares the two devices. Samsung’s mid-range devices suffer from poor performance thanks to the heaviness of TouchWiz, but such isn’t the case with flagships, so no, not every Samsung phone is slower than its opponents.

      But thank you for pointing that out in a sensible manner, appreciated!
