If pure performance is important to you, then you might want to give the Galaxy S6 a try. We’ve managed to run AnTuTu on our preview Galaxy and the numbers are impressive. The Galaxy S6 whoops every other device in the benchmark producing a score of over 67,000, making it the fastest smartphone on the planet at the moment.
The S6 is faster than the Meizu MX4, the Galaxy Note 4 and the OnePlus One, and the Galaxy S6 is almost twice as fast as the Glaaxy S5 that it replaces. This is not by chance, the Galaxy S6 is packed with cutting edge internals. It’s the first smartphone the world to use a 14nm processor. In comparison, the fastest processor from Qualcomm — the Snapdragon 810 — is still based on a 20nm process making it less power efficient on paper. This fast processor is then mated with 3GB DDR4 RAM that’s faster than DDR3 RAM that’s more commonly used in smartphones today.
To make the most out of the fast processor and fast ram, the Galaxy is the first device is the world to use a new type of storage technology developed by Samsung called Universal Flash Storage (UFS) 2.0. UFS 2.0 is almost 30% faster than eMMC 5.0 — the most common form of memory embedded in high-end smartphones today. It is also 50% more power efficient than conventional eMMC memory.
Of course, benchmark scores is just one aspect of the device performance but it’s one important aspect and it gives you a very good indication of what the device is capable of, and right now, the Galaxy S6 is the best you can get.
