So how do you think this will go down? just how much better is the Galaxy S3 compared to the older Galaxy S2 model? What difference does all of Samsung’s improvements make and is it worth the extra money the newer phone costs these days?
The main difference affecting performance will be the CPU upgrade. Samsung put a beastly dual core Exynos 1 Ghz processor in the the S2 but the S3 really steps things up with a Exynos 4 Quad clocked at 1.4 Ghz. Not only is it a much more powerful chip but it even consumes less power.
As for the other specs, the newer S3 boasts a much bigger screen but it still only has the same 1GB of RAM as the S2. However, it does have a Mali-400 MP4 Adreno 225 GPU which should outperform the ARM Mali-400 MP4 of the S2.
Both were flagship phones when they came out and wildly popular selling about 100 million units combined. In the video above we subject both handsets to a rigorous benchmark test to check their processing speed, RAM performance and their graphical performance.
