By the use of the popular Geekbench 2 programmes (used to measure the speed of the device),a survey of various smartphones was held.
It was found the S4 scored 3163, beating the new HTC One’s 2687 as well as the Google Nexus 4 and the previous Galaxy model, the S3.
Even Apple iPhone was ranked fifth with the rating of 1596. The original iPhone scored 130 when it was launched six years ago.
By contrast the Z10 from BlackBerry, which was released this year, offers processing speeds similar only to last year’s handsets.
The factor under consideration is how the galaxy S4 will handle the performance meter,which challenges its cooling and power requirement.
