It’s twice as fast as the iPhone 4S, and is MUCH snappier than the high-end Android handset. Yup, that includes Samsung’s flagship, the Galaxy S III, (or the “GS3” as the kids like to call it.)
In fact, it’s the fastest smartphone SunSpider has ever recorded, scoring 914.7ms. In comparison, the iPhone 4S achieved a score of 2,250ms, while the Galaxy S III got 1442.9ms. Of course, the lower the score, the better the performance. All tests are performed using the handset’s stock (built-in) web browser.
