Hey guys, this is Austin and today I'm here with a speed test between the iPhone 5 and Samsung Galaxy S3. As arguably the two best phones out there right now let's see which is fastest.
My first test is of the iPhone 5 on Verizon LTE. As the big new addition you can expect speeds of over 13Mbps down and 4Mbps up and generally much higher. Unfortunately I can't demo the Galaxy S3 for you but both phones are fully capable of awesome speeds.
Next up we have Geekbench which takes a look at the overall performance of each phone. One interesting note, while both are dual core the Galaxy S3 typically runs at 1.5GHz the iPhone 5 fluctuated between 800MHz and 1.2GHz depending on the load. The Geekbench scores were fairly close with the Galaxy S3 pulling in a total of 1422 points and the iPhone 5 with 1648. Still, a win is a win.
Now we have GLBenchmark. This is all about testing the graphical performance in games with a complex run through the Egypt benchmark and as you can see there's really no contest. The iPhone 5 is able to consistently run it smoother and bumps against the VSync quite often where the Galaxy S3 struggles a bit. As the iPhone has fewer pixels to push I reran the test in the offscreen mode with both phones rendering at 1080p and the iPhone managed almost double the frame rate with a score rivaling the iPad 3.
Even with Jellybean which most Galaxy S3 models are lacking right now there's no denying that the iPhone 5 has some serious firepower. Of course specs aren't everything so let me know in the comments below which you would pick and why!
