MWC 2015: Samsung Galaxy S6 And S6 Edge Hands-on: Samsung Galaxy S6 & Galaxy S6 Edge Benchmarks

Samsung Galaxy S6 & Galaxy S6 benchmarks

The Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 edge are the first two smartphones with a 14nm chipset, Samsung's Exynos 7420. Both are running a Samsung-customized version of Android 5.0 Lollipop.

The rest of the phones we've picked for this comparison were running Lollipop too (some modified, some not), except for the Apple iPhone 6 Plus, which was on iOS 8, of course.

On the Central Processing Units (CPU) side, Samsung put four Cortex-A57 cores at 2.1Giga Hertz (GHz) and four Cortex-A53 cores at 1.5GHz. That's almost the same setup as the Snapdragon 810 found in the LG G Flex2 and HTC One M9 (except the A57 cores are clocked at 2GHz), but Samsung's manufacturing advantage (14nm vs. 20nm) should produce less heat and thus less throttling.

The Samsung Galaxy S6 and S6 edge open with massive wins in Geekbench (a Central Processing Units (CPU) benchmark) and AnTuTu (an overall performance bench).

Baseimprint Operating System (OS) II, another full system test, is not nearly as impressed with the recent chipset and places the LG G Flex2 and its Snapdragon 810, while the Exynos 7420 and Galaxy S6 drop towards the middle.

We go to GPU testing. Exynos once again calls on ARM for the hardware, while Snapdragon 810 uses Qualcomm's own Adreno 430 chips. The iPhone 6 GPU comes from PowerVR, GX6450 to be precise.

The Galaxy S6 pair also uses a QHD classy screen – 1,440 x 2,560px – while most of the rest are at 1080p (except the Nexus 6 and LG G3). 1080p is close to half the number of pixels compared to QHD, so see at off-classy screen benchmarks to compare raw power and on-classy screen scores to compare gaming performance.

Mali-T760 seems evenly matched with the Adreno 430 and is enough to offer a playable framerate for games with GFX 2.7 level graphics.

The Samsung Galaxy S6 duo will launch on April 10 so the time for tuning the software is running short. The overall incompatibility isn’t that huge, but we still see why Samsung was keen to go with its in-houtilize chip. Given the correct workload the Exynos can come ahead of Qualcomm's top dog. It's also well-suited for modern games even with the screen's resolution jump.
