The credit for the first smartphone with quad-core processor will go to HTC: The One X with Nvidia Tegra 3 appeared in April. Samsung opted for the now Exynos 4 quad from its own production - and thus created the rounder concept. After all, unlike the One X, which proved to be outspoken firebrand, was the S3 superior. While the clock down to three Tegra benchmarks repeatedly had to not overheat the loose Exynos sprinted to the top. Only after intensive test runs in summer temperatures will also occasionally slowed the S3's performance - a sign that explore the limits of the possible four cores for smartphones. Warmer than about 39 degrees (32 degrees in normal operation), the S3 was never here, while the X One reached 51 degrees.

The Exynos 4 Quad is made differently than its predecessor in the Galaxy S2 now with 45 nm in 32 nm feature size, which reduces the energy consumption and allows for higher clock rates. The four processor cores - still ARM Cortex A9 - reaching up to 1.4 GHz. The graphics unit is also already known Mali 400 with four graphics cores will be clocked at 400 MHz even twice as high as in the predecessor. So far they surpassed even the leaders in most categories Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 with two cores from the HTC One S.

The high clock rates are particularly evident in the graphic-intensive GL benchmark noticeable: About 30 percent more frames per second as previously the Android graphics accelerator (Qualcomm Adreno 225) creates the Mali 400 is reached and thus even the spheres of the PowerVR in iPhone 4S. In the CPU test score marks of 4 with four threads Exynos suggests just the Tegra third In the more important for many applications, single-thread performance, he set a new record in the JavaScript test.

This can be felt in everyday life: The S3 can be used in any situation serve as soft as butter, no switching between the desktops of TouchWiz interface or scrolling on complex web pages with numerous illustrations bring the phone out of step - with Android four already less susceptible to is stuttering.

On the terms affects the performance of non-negative. Also thanks to the powerful battery, the S3 compared to other high-end devices with Android, not only in most categories hold, but are, at a remarkably high values ​​in the Video running time.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
