The launch of the Samsung Galaxy S II is around the corner for T-Mobile USA customers, but if you've been keeping track of the many variations of the S II, you'll know it's not the same as the international or the AT&T version.
The Galaxy S II for T-Mobile swaps out the Exynos chipset for a Qualcomm Snapdragon S3 chipset with two 1.5GHz Scorpion cores and Adreno 220 graphics (vs. two 1.2GHz cores Cortex-A9 and Mali-400MP GPU). The screen is bigger than the one on the international version too - a 4.52" SuperAMOLED Plus screen with WVGA resolution.
How does the T-Mobile version of S II stack up against the Exynos versions? Well, someone already ran Quadrant and it scored 3841. In our benchmarks, the Exynos in the international Galaxy S II scored 3538 in the same benchmark.
Here's the benchmark on video:
If that's got your attention, the Samsung Galaxy S II for T-Mobile will be available on October 10th online and October 12th nationwide in US stores. It costs $230 after a $50 mail-in rebate.
CF-Score of t-mo SGS II Native Score - 11555 Java - 3578 Overall - 6768 I don't really care about the score, but I'm disappointed in the SGS II's SAMOLED+ Screen. It's not good when it's set to low brightness.
really don't care what the TMobile version has. We all know the Galaxy S3 when it debuts at MWC or next Winter/Spring will have a much faster chip anyway. I'm really getting sick of all the vs. this vs. that junk. Sure, the Iphone 4s is faster ...
Yes its true the tmobile version is the fastest of all, i have att and my wife has tmobile , sorry to say tmobile version killed it!!
