    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.
