Xiaomi Mi-3 result was photoshopped. Its been all over the news man get a grip.
Who says Sony ZU is not a phone, because it's very big?
It has all properties of a phone (calling, sms texsting and other, which you can't do with a tablet). So what if it's so big? It's a monster phone!
Galaxy s4 got nearly 30000 on antutu bechmark with S800 thats a good score but what about Xiaomi Mi-3 that got 80000+ with the same chipset.why so much difference?
Same chipsets but the antutu of sony xperia z ultra is better than the samsung galaxy s4 advance, so you guys are telling that z ultra is not a phone? Its a phablet? So what do u think on s4 its a phone and not a phablet? Its 5" screen thats the minimum size of a phablet, fyi s4 is a phablet!

Bunch of ding dongs obsessed with useless benchmark results..WOW so what you scored a 30,000..My measly 2 year old dual core Galaxy Nexus barely hits 7000 on a good day yet feels as fast if not faster than any of the over fluffed quad/octa core android terds getting pumped out today..Oh and my brothers single core intel powered (Motorola-I)is the fastest android ive touched to date running shitty 4.0.4 ICS..
Nice scores. I'll just wait for S5. My S3 serves me well. No need to upgrade right now.

Now Samsung has Exynos and Snapdragon on the CPU side and MALI, PowerVR and Andreno on the GPU side, who can beat that ? :)
Anonymous, 26 Jun 2013Already exceeded by the Xperia Z UltraThis maybe, however the Z Ultra is a 6.44" phablet and not a phone...and we don't know what this S4 is clocked at.
Regardless though, it IS the same chipset so kudos to Sony.
Samsung needs to consolidate to one chipset for all markets (similar to iPhone). This SOC fragmentation not only upsets a lot of the market, it just makes support more of a nightmare meaning fewer long term updates and custom ROMs.
Not water resistant? Wait for the s4-svh... Active. Whatever. Coming soon is mini active, duos, advance, plus, and each with different variants of chipset. In case your confused, just get the Xperia Z.

Benchmarks make for nice graphs, but 12-14% improvement is not likely to be noticeable.
Particularly if the software is not optimized very well - the Galaxy IV exhibits slight stuttering despite its powerful processors, while phones like the iPhone and the HTC One manage to provide smoother experience with less power.
my s4 exynos scores 30.200 with antutu also stock factory firmware-something is wrong?
Pointless phone anyone hoping to Root their device and get a half decent rom on it, the vast majority of developers from the S3 and One X have already found a home with the M7 and S4.
