Guys, I'm getting 5900 on my S2, 5500 is really poor if you are talking S3!!
Based on review benchmarks and Anandtech as well, your 3500 appears over 1000 points under the S4 dual. Odd.
Unless the reviews are posting erroneous results, the S4 dual is a lot higher than that. Please look up reviews and Anandtech rather than believe my babble.
I think Covart above you has AT&T version and he got about 4770 on quadrant. Most reviews of US versions are showing 4500~5000 on it. I'm not sure about yours. Maybe some apps you installed and using are affecting it.
Yep, I have the AT&T version. I ran my benchmarks with plenty of resource hogging apps open, like web browser, eCID, Avast, Missed it, power monitor widget, weather... All running in the background all the time. I'm sure if everything was disabled, the benchmark would be higher, but I wanted to see my benchmarks for everyday use. Lab benchmarks tend to be on the highside, with everything perfect.
Hmm... Even with over a gig of free memory and no apps really open I can't seem to get better than 3500 on Quadrant and about 5100 on AnTuTu. Hmmm?
Weird... Even with over 1GB of free available memory and nothing open I can't get any higher than 3500 on Quadrant. Maybe there is a power saver mode on or something? I'll have to mess around with it.
There is a power saver option to reduce the clock speed on the CPU to save battery. Make sure you don't have that enabled. I just downloaded Quadrant standard and ran it immediately and got at 4788. Wifi, bluetooth, widgets, etc all running.
Also, available RAM has nearly 0 impact on Android performance. 1 GB free, 200 MB free, you're not going to see much of a difference. Unless you start opening up huge apps with only 50 MB free. But the UI will perform the same.
I still can't manage to beat 3100 on Quadrant. I made sure power saving mode was off and I had nothing open. This was after a fresh reboot/battery pull too. AnTuTu I get about 5100.
Starting to piss me off. My HTC Sensation 4G 1.2Ghz Dual Core runs about 2700 on Quadrant.
In AnTuTu it tells me after my test my CPU frequency speed was 1134Mhz. It seems like my processor is being limited but power saving is off? Grrrr.
My advice is that you ignore benchmarks, then. Sometimes benchmarks are weird. My Evo 3D would report Quadrants of 1700 when it was dual core and OC'd to 1.5 GHz, the UI was snappy and smooth and so were games. I couldn't understand it, either. So I uninstalled Quadrant and just laughed about it.
I just did a test in AnTuTu and it's saying my clock speed is only 1134Mhz.. Power saving is turned off. Don't understand why it's not performing at full capcaity 1.5Ghz?
Going to turn "Power Saving Mode" on and uncheck everything except turning off the touch feedback. Let's see if that does anything....
I also merged the CPU and Benchmark threads as both of them turned into benchmark discussions.
What carrier version do you have? Check out the demo unit at your carrier store to see if there is any difference. Since you must be still in the return window of phone, you can probably return it for other one if you can't figure it out.
edit: also make sure you use the same latest quadrant for testing. new version will yield different number for multi-core phones. anyway I wouldn't worry too much about quadrant as there are so many factors affecting its numbers.
Sorry.. Forum newbie here. Let me know if I'm making too many posts . Just upset everyone else I know is scoring amazingly high and I can't seem to duplicate that. Arr!
Here's a relevant video regarding the subject of this thread:
Vid comparison international vs US
Great video. Both phones are amazing but I still can't get my Quadrant score past 3500. I know some say benchmarks are not important but is this a software glitch or did I get a bad phone lol? Otherwise phone performs flawlessly.
Quadrant Score: 3623
CPU: 5415 - Mem 4268- I/O 5448 - 2D 901 - 3D 2085
There is an option to cap max speed to the speed you mention. Check cpu settings to see if set by accident.
you have it backwards. The cpu is a little better on s4 than it is on the exynos. The gpu of the exynos kills it hands down.
I've looked, where will I find this option?
Definitely have the updated quadrant but still can't score higher than 3500 :-[
Can't beat 5100 in AnTuTu... Man wtf is going on?
well like someone said already, many folks think it's not true A15 architecture, simply because its not same architecture.
qualcomm makes their own cores isntead of licensing from ARM, and krait is made to compete against Cortex 15.
Snapdragon S3 was competing against cortex A9 and performance wise it was between cortex A8 and A9. (2.1MIPS/mhz vs 2.0 and 2.5MIPS/mhz)
Krait has 3.3MIPS/mhz and ARM cortex A15 is supposed to have 3.5MIPS/mhz.
Samsung I9300 Galaxy S III vs. HTC One X: Alien vs. Predator - GSMArena.com
they're all similar on performance, some ups and downs.
certainly 28nm process helped on battery efficiency than 45nm process, but TSMC's 28LP isnt better on battery efficient than Samsung's 32nmHKMG.
TSMC had trouble adapting HKMG on their process for long, they just gave it up on 28LP and they're still using PolysiOn.
HKMG reduces overall 1/10 current leakage at same process.
Stock Tmobile Galaxy S3 that I picked up yesterday.
I only rooted and installed and TON of apps, all bloatware still there...
here are my results:
I'm sure these will only get better once some nice custom rom's are released.
Arlington Heights, IL server I see you're local in the same area as me (Palatine here).
I'm guessing theres something wrong with my unit then because as I mentioned earlier I can't achieve those scores. It's as if my processor won't stay at full speed under load.
Not sure, but saw it was a feature in the stock room in a video review.
I think it's possible you got a bad one if not software or some setting issue. You better check other units in Tmo store to see if there is difference.
There's definitely a difference. As others on here have shown zero problems running Quadrant and obtaining a score 4900+ using the T-Mobile S3. Just look above at Gerr's post. He is local to me, using the same carrier, same phone and his results are awesome.
I just ran Quadrant again and only scored a 3100. Processor speed 918Mhz. In all honesty I'm about ready to say screw it and grab myself the HTC One X.
