No offense but please stop replying to me unless you've got something worthwhile to say. That aside, what you wrote doesn't make sense and I don't care.

Well, Apple should have updated its CPU along with the GPU to net a greater increase, because from what I see the SGS III will have a much better SoC overall than most of the competition, due to the quad Exynos plus a higher-clocked Mali GPU. And the test is likely done at 720p, which is the suspected resolution of the phone - the fact that it scores higher in GLBenchmark Pro and Egypt at its native resolution over the 4S means something.
The iPad's real competition will be in that upcoming Galaxy Tab, rumored to have the much better Exynos 5250 based on the A15 architecture and will have the Mali-T605 - over 5x the power of the current Mali-400. Hopefully Samsung's Unpacked event this May 3 will also showcase the tablet along with the SGS III.
I expect they didn't improve the CPU because of heat restraints -- it already gets quite warm, adding a quad-core or a faster clocked dual-core would probably push it too far. Next year we should see a dual-core or quad-core Cortex A15 and a PowerVR SGX600 series GPU which will help to reduce heat greatly as only one of them is 2.5x more powerful than the MP4 in the iPad 3.

Oh I see. May 3 huh? Mmm... do they have a stream of the event?

Oh yes, the Unpacked event does have a stream for the unveiling. There's an app on the Play Store right now, but not sure if the App Store has it as well.

You are going off-topic comparing different products that aren't even in the same bracket just to praise Apple products. It's obvious. We don't care about the iPad, as it has no relation to this discussion. Your love of the what you praise to be the best product on the planet was threatened so you picked an argument that was tangent to his article. It's OFF-TOPIC and does not belong here!

It is worthwhile to say, as your argument has no barring on this discussion. I hope you leave it out from now on and on future discussions when we are discussing phones, not slates, but phones. Please...it is thread derailment...EVERY time...and the Apple fan base on here (OCN) does it every time.

It makes perfect sense, I was, just like you, comparing computational power of a graphics processing unit in 2 completely different brackets. That was only an example of just how ludicrous your example sounded. It is obvious, when a smaller product has restraints such as battery life, physical space, thermodynamic needs, etc., for operation, that a phone would more then likely consist of weaker processing power of a larger device that does not have as much as a constraint in comparison.

I'm not going off topic, I addressed what was written in the article, some of which was even quoted in the OP.

And I'm not 'comparing computational power of a graphics processing unit in 2 completely different brackets', I responded to the article which suggested this faster clocked Mali-400 was 'trading blows' with the SGX543MP4. It was the article writer, not I, who was comparing the two, I merely pointed out that the SGX543MP4 is far more powerful, contrary to what was said in the article.

I do find it strange though that you say I'm praising Apple products, as I did say that the iPad 3 will actually have LESS horsepower available to it than the 4S or the SGS3 because of its higher resolution.

While I'm eagerly waiting for this phone, the implied notion from this article that the mali 400 (albeit overclocked) is even comparable to the A5X GPU is pretty absurd. I don't think we'll see GPU's on that magnitude until the next series mali-600's. Although, this is to be expected, as the iPad3 is pushing 3 1/3 times the pixels of the SG3 and the tradeoffs to fit such a powerful GPU were enormous (immense thermal, size, and power issues).

However, this gives me hope that this will be one of the best - if not the best - android phone released this year. I was seriously disappointed with the nexus, as it seemed like a mild (and in some cases, inferior) upgrade from other smartphones and was really just a vehicle to introduce ICS 4.0 and a nice new screen. Seriously hoping this phone addresses the main flaw of the Nexus (terrible battery life) with their lower voltage die shrinks and embedded 4g antenna. Bring that and a true SUPER AMOLED 720p PLUS display and I'm on board.

As a sidenote the left side of the screen was also yellowish on 2 out of the 3 phones I had (2 were RMA'd due to screen issues before I gave up.
I just didn't know how to explain it better but I found an article that does:
"Try this: Fill up the screen with solid black. You can use the screen test menu (*#0*#) if you can't be bothered to find a totally black image. Make sure the whole screen is black, with not even the notification bar showing.
Then go into a totally pitch dark room. Look at the screen for about 30 seconds, to give your eyes time to adjust. If your phone is anything like the 3 models I looked at today, the screen won't be totally black, but will have patches, blotches and lines of darker black areas.
My friend noticed this and when I first checked my phone I didn't see anything as the room was not dark enough and I didn't give my eyes time to adjust. However, at work we went into a dark room (eyebrows in the office did raise) and he showed me the "problem". My other workmate who also has a Galaxy S2 looked at his handset with us under the same conditions and, you guessed it, same black blotches - albeit not in exactly the same places.
It doesn't affect me and I would never have noticed unless my friend had pointed it out, but it is quite amazing that this slipped through R&D. I would imagine that if I watched a dark film in a dark room, I might notice.
SO that is three Galaxy S2 phones, all bought weeks / months apart from different retailers and, in my case, in another part of the country. But yet all have the same flaw. I know one other person that has this phone and I am going to try and check theres, but I think this effects all Galaxy S2 phones.
Like I said, you will only see this in a totally dark room, so don't simply glance at your screen and claim it is fine. Find a pitch dark room, totally black screen and look for at least 30 seconds with the brightness on medium to high."

I am having neither sound issues (and I have poor hearing) nor was I able to replicate the screen issue in a pitch black windowless closet with the screen on high brightness on my GS2 LTE. Even if the screen did appear to have this problem, its such an extreme condition I don't think I would care. It would be like complaining about the AC not working well in your car while driving it in lava. tongue.gif

They'll stream on the same day. Probably tech blogs will have their own streams as well.

I have the opposite problem. I have sensitive ears and the lowest volume is often too high if I'm in a quiet room. I have to hold the phone away from my ear.
