After the curtain got torn apart and OEM's cheating in mobile benchmarks caught red handed, people have been wary of benchmark scores in general. You can't trust them, so why obsess over them and give them even a second's thought? Well, GameBench has conducted a set of real-world benchmarks on the Samsung Galaxy S4 and HTC One (both powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 600 SoC, with the former featuring a 1.9 GHz CPU clock and slightly boosted GPU core frequency as well). And the outfit claims that their tests are 'uncheatable'. So how does the S4 and One fare under such scenarios?
Both devices perform admirably, although we suspect their performance to fall short of monster devices powered by Qualcomm's latest Snapdragon 800 chipset. Either way, Samsung's Galaxy S4 emerges victorious, posting better scores across the board. So even without cheating, the Galaxy S4 does manage to outpace competition. Now, GameBench, how about throwing in the likes of LG G2 and Xperia Z1 into the arena, and then see how Samsung's flagship fares against the duo.
