In this EXTREME benchmark test, we take up the Samsung Galaxy S7(Exynos) vs. LG G5 vs. S7 Edge(Qualcomm) running the Antutu benchmark multiple times to see which one can outperform in extreme stress/heat to the phone.
What we found was very interesting. While the Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge outperformed the LG G5 in the first few benchmark tests with lower temperatures, the LG G5 came back and ran the benchmarks more stable and solid with lower temps nearing the end of the test.
For those of you wondering how fast the new Android smartphones like the Galaxy S6/S6 Edge and HTC One M9 are over its long-distant rival Apple’s iPhone 6, you may be in for pleasant surprise this year.
Although in previous the race for the fastest smartphone has always been a close race, this year Android smartphones really whop out blazing, new processors that eclipse the iPhones.
For those of you wondering the performance differences between the Exynos 7420 processor on the Galaxy S6/S6 Edge vs. Qualcomm Snapdragon 810 on the HTC One M9/LG G Flex 2, we did a bunch of Antutu benchmark tests to find out.
Overall, the Exynos 7420 beat out the Qualcomm 810 in pretty much all of the tests within Antutu benchmark app. What we wanted to really find out was the heating issues with LG G Flex 2, which causes the phone to lag when playing games for a long time or using the phone in very hot weather.
The word is out! The Galaxy S6 is officially the king of speed in smartphone performance. With its Exynos 7420 Octa-core processor, the Galaxy S6 blasts through benchmarks like nothing we have seen ever before.
Couple months back, I thought my Nexus 9 was really, really fast with Antutu scores of near 58,000. Well, the verdict is in folks, the Galaxy S6 scored an average of 69,000 on Antutu. FYI, we used Android 5.0.2 for both the S6 and Note 4 to make it a fair contest.
So how fast is the all-new Nexus 9 Android tablet from Google?
Here’s a quick Antutu benchmark of Nexus 9 pitted against the Galaxy Note 4, fastest smartphone on earth “right now”.
The results are pretty interesting as the Nexus 9 scored a whopping 57,414 on Antutu. I think this is the highest score I’ve seen so far on any Android device period.
Does quad-HD screen affect performance?
The Samsung Galaxy Note 4 comes with quad-HD screen, which has 2560×1440 pixel resolution, that’s almost double the amount of pixels versus a 1080P screen.
In my last benchmark test with the Note 4, S5, and the OnePlus One, we noticed that the Note 4 didn’t outperform the older Qualcomm 801-based phones (S5 and OnePlus One) by much. In fact, OnePlus One killed Note 4 in Antutu benchmarks. That got me thinking, and I decided to do a benchmark test against another quad-HD phone like the LG G3.
Here’s a quick comparison video of international HTC One X versus AT&T HTC One XL using Quadrant and Antutu benchmarks.
If you look carefully, in both tests the quad-core HTC One X scores much higher in CPU ratings (30-50%). Also notice that the quad-core One X finishes both tests a bit earlier than the HTC One XL.
