Qualcomm S4 chipset benchmarks promise amazing performance - read the full textA fresh batch of benchmarks of Qualcomm's S4 platform show just how powerful the new Krait cores are. The tests were run on a reference platform, but since we don't care about the rest of the hardware (screen, camera, etc.), just the chipset performance, these result are a good indication of what...

Buyers remose? I have the phone ever since they released it here and seing that video made me not need a change.

If you're a fanboy and feel the need to praise your phone, ok. Just that understand that there are others out there who don't care about the brand, samsung, iphone, lg, just go on the internet and see how the actual phone works before buying it.

here's the video:

I'll chose next phone either by getting an lg with tegra 3 on it, if the design looks good, either that s III if it will have the screen from edge to edge.

Fanboys always loose, because their opinions are biased. I'm saying what I saw and how things were. Rage less and try acting mature next time please.

Galaxy SII runs HD games perfectly well, ive had no issues, on the other hand ive seen both in person and on vid reviews LGs stuttering and lagging in simple tasks and needing modding to run well.

Ip4s gpu is just good for games it lags to play youtube desktop
Version where as s2 is a multimedia gpu you need to overclock
It to 400mhz then it's par with ip4s gpu simple

It was one with both phones and the person was testing a RPG game and on the S II that game was a bit choppy. That made me not buy the phone. I don't feel sorry for not getting it, especially after I've seen how the new LG interface looks like. IMO, s II is a bit overrated, but that's only my opinion.

iPhone and iPad still king and just wait two weeks and you see amazing results by iPad 3. The GPU in iPad 3 is going to perform like rocket.

I feel bad for the people that got stuck with the garbage GPU and the 'faster' CPU in most of the S2 phones. The Samsung Mali version was far superior to the other GPU/CPU versions. Makes it hard to compare apples to apples. Maybe they should've named the non-Mali GPU/CPU combinations to something like the S1.5 rather than the S2. lol

s4 is 3 diferent cpu.
4cores with adreno 3xx who is faster than 225
2cores with adreno 225 and single core cpu with adreno 300 who is slower than 225 but faster than 220 using in s3
kraiti is 28nm cpu. with same ghz it used alot smolest amaut of energy.

I just love how people praise the S II and say how awesome it is in benchmarks, when in real life situations I saw S II vs tegra2 and the S II started to cut in high demanding games.

What the market needs is a balanced phone, because many buy high end smartphones for high end games, not only for how awesome the CPU is.

and then comes the crappy battery life..,they should focus on that instead of always jacking up the cpu speeds

so is this thr same GPU that will be used in karit or this unit is just to demonstrate other aspects of the chipset? and i thought karit was to be clocked at 2.5 ghz,, so i hope this isn't the final unit!

Not again with these crap offscreen test.

iphone results are irrelevant. Anandtech tests on iphone fail so much. Egypt offscreen test is forcing the output to airplay!

Fact: iphone CAN'T render the 1280 x 720 HD resolution! Instead of the internal rendering at that resolution, the output goes to AIRPLAY mirroring, but using the native resolution 960x640 !!! in a word: CHEAT!
