By now you must have already become familiar with the Galaxy S5 smartphone. However, you should know that the Indian version of the Galaxy S5 is not exactly similar to the one that are available in other markets, especially the US. The only difference is the SoC that powers the Galaxy S5.
The Indian Galaxy S5 variant comes with a Octa-Core Exynos 5422 processor. The chipset is based on ARM big.LITTLE architecture and 28nm High K Metal Gate Process technology, similar to the previous Exynos 5 chips. To go into a technical details of the SoC, it has four ARM cortex A15 cores clocked at 1.9 GHz each and four ARM Cortex A7 cores clocked at 1.3 GHz each and has a ARM Mali T628 MP6 GPU.
And it is not virtual cores that we are talking about here, but a True Octa-Core or Heterogeneous Multi-Processing solution that can run the combination of up to eight cores to provide optimum performance.
On the other hand, the Galaxy S5 smartphone which has been launched in the other markets, are powered by Qualcomm's latest Snapdragon 801 quad core SoC. The chipset consists of a 28nm HPm quad core Krait 400 CPU at up to 2.5GHz per core and a LP-DDR3 memory for high performance and low latency.
Also a speed enhanced Adreno 330 GPU delivers up to 50% increase in graphics performance. It also supports advanced graphic and compute APIs, including OpenGL ES 3.0, DirectX, OpenCL, Renderscript Compute and FlexRender.
The immediate thought that comes to our head when we take a look at these technical specs is that "which one is better?". Let us tell you that according to the benchmark tests that we had conducted the Galaxy S5 powered by Snapdragon 801 SoC did much better in terms of graphic interface of the handset while in terms of performance and web browsing the Octa Core variant of the Galaxy S5 was slightly better.
GizBot has already shared the Camera review of the Galaxy S5 (Octa Core variant) and today we have come up with a several benchmark tests that shows the strength of the handset without us having to tell you. From graphic to the performance tests, performed using several benchmarking tools which include Quadrant, AnTuTu app, and others, you will find every details about the power and performance of the Galaxy S5.
