Galaxy S6, S6 edge top the list in smartphone performance for Q1 2015

The Galaxy S6 and S6 edge have blown away the competition when it comes to memory performance, but the latest benchmarks from Q1 2015 show that the Galaxy S6 and S6 edge are the two top phones to beat for the remainder of 2015.

The latest Antutu benchmarks from Q1 (January-March 2015) show that the GS6 and S6 edge are faster than even the HTC One M9, with Antutu benchmark scores of 67520 (Galaxy S6) and 62,373 (S6 edge), respectively. The HTC One M9 with the Snapdragon 810 posted a score of 52,709. The HTC One M9 is no match for Samsung’s latest, a testimony to just how well the Korean manufacturer has optimized its smartphones.

As has often been said among experienced tech-savvy individuals, anyone can optimize their smartphones and provide blazing-fast speeds, and one company’s win in one year may be its loss the next year as competitors catch up and speed ahead. The speed of HTC One phones that many have used against Samsung in the past is no more. Additionally, a large number of tech reviewers have commended the company for the speed and performance of its devices, and the benchmarks bear this out.

In the GPU department, Samsung’s octa-core, Exynos 7420 processor in both the S6 and the S6 edge outperformed the Qualcomm Snapdragon 810 processor (Qualcomm’s latest). We’ve heard that the Snapdragon 810 has overheating issues, and many tech reviews confirm the same. Some have suggested a fictional Snapdragon 815 processor that Qualcomm says is non-existent, but this strong showing by Samsung means that the chatter about Qualcomm turning to Samsung as a chip supplier may have more merit than just the words of analysts.

All this good news for Samsung isn’t to say that Qualcomm still doesn’t command a large segment of the population when it comes to smartphones bearing its processor chips. The company name is still one worthy of recognition, but these benchmarks make Samsung’s Exynos processor one to be feared in mobile devices going forward. Samsung’s prepping that new top-tier Tizen smartphone contender with each passing day.

Why Antutu Benchmark avoid obstinately Galaxy Alpha ( 50K-52K Score ) ? I think that this lovely and awarded device can not be ignored . So , Antutu is not a reliable and neutral source . Obviously they pursue other purposes than those related to Objectivity !?

These are not Accurate, as Note 4 with Exynos scores 52K higher then Note 4 SD’s 49K , i saw a Video where S6Edge Scores 69K Higher then S6’s 67K

Even One M9 Score 59K

Galaxy S5 with lesser processor and lesser RAM higher than nexus 6, note 4? Someone educate me on this.

Sorry for my ignorance in advance. But why does the s6 edge score less on the benchmark test than the s6? It as the same amount of ram, same processor and cores etc? All I know of is the batteries that’s different from the 2 and the screen? Does this really make such a difference that the s6 edge gets a lower score than the s6?

It’s all none on arg% in most cases the s6 edge is faster, but you find that it’s getting tested more so scores are dropping the normal score is 69000, also it’s been test big time in battery saving mode on some reviews again dropping it Dow, this will go up big time as the phomes get sent out to users

There are so many variables man, even things like what apps they both have installed can effect it. They both trade some blows but are usually right around 70k in Antutu – making them the 2 fastest devices on the market by a wide margin.

Where is the iPhone on the list?

AnTuTu is an Android only benchmark. But checking reviews on other websites, the S6 is logically faster than the iPhone 6 (since the iPhone is already 6 months old), at least when it comes to multicore applications. The iPhone 6 is a bit faster in single core applications (most apps are still single core though…).
Just don’t stare yourself blind on synthetic benchmarks like AnTuTu. Benchmarks from real life applications will give you a more accurate view when it comes to performance.

You can’t compare phones on different OS when it comes to benchmarks man, without going into detail, the results become irrelevant. Just know that the chip the S6 is running is the fastest mobile chip ever created.
