Last year, we broke the story about Samsung Galaxy SIII and its Relatively disappointing performance in the world version of the phone. Even though this was one of first quad-core phones to arrive on the market, we were unpleasantly surprised to see that the Exynos 4412 SoC inside the GT-I9300 (Galaxy SIII) featured Mali-400T series graphics processor. Needless to say, we had a fair number of sites and readers that did not believe the results, and the rest is history.
Less than a year has passed and we're at another crossroad, weeks before Samsung Mobile officially unveils the GT-I9500, the Samsung Galaxy SIV. Knowing that the 2012 model fought the battle against Apple's iPhone 4S and iPhone 5 and won, this year the competition will be stronger than ever. Both the iPhone 5S and iPhone 6 will fight against the Galaxy SIV and SIV Galaxy Mini and the company made sure they will offer a compelling level of performance.
The recently rumored specs of the Galaxy S IV were found to be so untrue that Samsung Mobile requested the sammobile.com blog to take the story down, but not before Google was able to cache the page.
Now, the big question is how well will this phone perform? Thanks to Power Board, an excellent online database from Rightware, we managed to find out. By accident, as it happens.
