This week at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, Samsung announced two new flagships, the Samsung Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge. Just as we had thought, and had been rumored/leaked for weeks. We got hands on with the Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge this week, and so did a ton of other people, as Samsung was showing them off at their booth all week long in Barcelona. And as usual, people have been running benchmarks. We did AnTuTu and it scored around 67k, on the Galaxy S6. Pretty crazy. Now getting into the more technical side is the Memory speed, or RAM speeds.
Using AndroBench, PhoneArena got some pretty amazing Memory speeds from the Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge. Looking at some of the speeds, for Random Read, the Galaxy S6 family scored 77, while the next highest was the Galaxy Note 4 at 20, and the LG G3 at 14. In Sequential write, the Galaxy S6 family scored a whopping 139, with the next highest being the Sony Xperia Z3 at 44. You can see the other speeds and results over on PhoneArena’s website, which is linked in the sources down below, for those interested.
So those that were in doubt about the Galaxy S6 and the Galaxy S6 Edge, so far everything we’ve seen shows these two devices to be powerhouses. However, it’s also important to remember that benchmarks don’t equal real world experience. We’ve seen sky high benchmarks on other devices before, only to have them be slow in day-to-day usage. We should be getting a review unit of both models fairly soon, and we’ll be sure to let everyone know how great, or not so great both the Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge perform in daily usage.
The Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge should be available next month in many countries, with it expanding to more countries and regions in the following months. We say “should” because these things can get delayed – as it’s happened before. But Samsung did say April 10th, we should have our hands on these devices. How many of you are going to pick up either the Galaxy S6 or the Galaxy S6 Edge.
