Samsung Galaxy S6 Antutu Benchmark Score Reflects The Smartphone's Main Strength

In our initial Samsung Galaxy S6 Philippines feature, I noted that ever since the launch of the first Galaxy flagship, the Korean Giant has consistently churned out top-of-the-line handsets with the best internal hardware. As a result, the Samsung brand of phones has - arguably - become synonymous with power.

This year, the SGS6 continues Samsung's sterling tradition of offering top-notch gaming and overall mobile experience to consumers by coming with probably the best innards out of all smartphones that have seen official announcement thus far.

Quoting our previous entry, "Under the hood, Samsung Galaxy S6 - just like the S6 Edge, which has a curved display - features an Octa Core Exynos 7420 chipset that incorporates four 1.5 GHz ARM Cortex A53 cores, 2.1 GHz ARM Cortex A57 CPUs, and a Mali-T760 GPU. The device handles multitasking with 3GB of DDR4 RAM, and comes with 32, 64, and 128 GB of non-expandable internal storage options. All of these combine to deliver the best gaming and overall touch experience that users can get from any Samsung device as of today."

But just how powerful is Samsung Galaxy S6 in terms of what its internal specifications can deliver? Well, MagazinMobilMedia - straight from Mobile World Congress 2015 in Barcelona - has just shared the Antutu Benchmark Score of the SGS6 vis-a-vis that of the S6 Edge variant and Samsung Galaxy S5.

Through click and go test suite, Antutu Benchmark measures User Experience, CPU, RAM, 2D/3D graphics, GPU, and I/O performance of any Android smartphone or tablet, giving the tester an accurate device performance score report. Note, however, that the Antutu benchmark score of an Android device is decided not just by its hardware configuration but it is also affected by many elements, including system mode, device temperature and running apps and other elements. It may not be the same score every time you test. [via]

After running the test, Samsung Galaxy S6 got a score of 68,265, which easily puts it head and shoulders above every other Android smartphone or tablet that's available in the market as of today. Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge, interestingly enough, got an ever slightly higher score of 69,384 while last year's flagship merely got 42,891.

So I guess if you're the type of consumer who deems raw power as the most important quality of a smartphone, then I guess Samsung Galaxy S6 should be at the top of your list of devices to check out this year. I mean, needless to say, it's a beast.
