benchmark wars for phone are so dumb. do you honestly think that most games push the hardware on phones anyway? the only ones are probably iOS-only games, so it's kind of a mute point.

what matters on a phone is that it performs reasonably fast and has a nice screen and soundcard (if you care about those things).

"i'm a general not a pokemon or something!"

"The fact that she's single is the real Crimea."

"Hippsterism is the offspring of the spoilt and narcissistic preachy hippie movement of the 1960s & 70s mixed together with the 'ironic' grunge Gen Y mores of the early 90s. Basically it involves dressing like a prat to show how self-aware you are."

You should also get some Apple stickers so it won't get viruses, an Alienware logo so it can play games amazingly and some Razer gear so everyone knows you are totally 1337.

well buy an s3 international then or iphone 5. because pretty much all other phones have crap sound cards. when you narrow it down like that, the choices become easy

Some (very unofficial) GLBenchmark results for the A6's GPU: http://twitpic.com/awwael . Seems like what we'd expect: capable but not overwhelming. However, I guess that if it was actually overwhelming, Apple would have stated a 10x GPU boost instead of 2x. smile.gif

Comparing those results to the official GL team results shows that the S3 in that graph is the international, not US, version. Contrary to what one of the other posters above stated, the GPU in the US GS3's S4 SoC is vastly inferior to other high end smartphones.

Looks like 2x the performance of the Mali-400 (one of the fastest mobile GPUs) found in the international Galaxy S3. If we add in the fact that the US GS3 has an inferior GPU compared to the international, the US GS3 is vastly inferior to the iPhone 5.

Not as amusing as quite an obvious "fan" of another obvious brand amusing himself by amusing me with his amusement.

Am I reading those graphs wrong, or is it you?

It's you, isn't it......
