While it may be true that benchmark scores don’t necessarily reflect how any device will function in real-world activities, they do show what kind of raw power a phone is working with. Just take a look at the Samsung Galaxy S II‘s recent benchmarks; that TouchWiz overlay might have a tendency to slow things down a bit, but there’s no denying the device is a beast under the hood.
Powered by a 1.2GHz Samsung Exynos dual-core processor, the GSII easily broke the 3,000 mark on Quadrant. The accuracy on Quadrant scores for dual-core devices is a subject of debate, but compared to other dual-core processing Quadrant scores, the Galaxy S II still comes out on top.
Samsung has a reputation for making some of the best mobile processors world wide, and it looks like they aren’t slowing down yet. Expect to see many more speed tests and real-world comparison videos when the Galaxy S II launches in just two weeks overseas.
