No one doubts that the newly announced Samsung Galaxy S9 and S9 + They're true beasts of processing, by the way, any manufacturer launching a flagship that did not do its job well in the middle of 2018 would be giving it a huge shot, which would tell the (sometimes) world leader in the segment. The fact that, at least in the harsh coldness of the numbers, it seems that the new South Korean stars have not reached their biggest competitors in terms of performance.
Somehow the AnandTech managed to post benchmarks Previews of Samsung's new handsets are already in the duo's presentation article which is impressive considering that the devices will only go on presale tomorrow and will only reach consumers within a few weeks. The numbers not only prove that Apple maintains some slack in the raw power of its processors, but also shows that there is a noticeable difference in the performance of the two S9 and S9 + "types" that will be put into the world.
As you may know, Samsung adopts an unorthodox strategy of producing identical handsets, but with different processors depending on the region. For the S9, one version bring the chip Exynos 9810, produced by South Korea itself, while the other will be equipped by the Snapdragon 845Qualcomm, this second model what to land in Brazil, the United States and some other territories. Apparently he is also the least potent of the two.
The benchmarks show that the Syn version equipped with the Exynos chip has reached 3,734 points single core measurement, while the Snapdragon version stayed in the 2,718 points. Neither scores was enough to overcome chip measurement A11from Apple which marked 4,630 points in the same test; even more surprising to see that even the chip A10, already over a year old, surpasses Samsung's new handsets, with 4,007 points The floating point measurements of processors vary slightly, but have similar proportions.
Obviously, some considerations need to be made here before we go on declaring the latest iPhones as the fastest phones in the world. Firstly, we do not yet have the numbers of the benchmarks multi-core, which where Samsung usually leaves Apple eating dust (we're talking about chips octa-coreafter all) and yes, for the (few) applications that offer processor optimization multi-core, that makes all the difference in the world.
Another, even more important point, is that we repeated ourselves exhausted back then at the beginning of the decade, when Android makers decided to work and made rockets that left contemporary iPhones slippery at every turn. benchmarks: Numbers never tell the whole story. To get a real idea of the performance of the S9 and S9 + Galaxies, we will have to wait for a lot of real world testing, a lot of weighting and analysis.
Either way, I believe that whatever people choose iPhone, Galaxy or whatever, the new crop of smartphones has everything to please in every way. I'm anxious, and you?

The website Tom’s Guide recently published its own findings following the benchmarks and for real use of the S9 / S9 + Galaxies. The verdict? Not unlike the one published by Ars Technicaabove.
O benchmark in multiple cores, which we missed in the previous review and I speculated that it would give Samsung an advantage, was in favor of the iPhone X: Apple's device scored a 10,357while the Galaxy S9 + got 8,295.
Meanwhile, in calls “real” measurements where analysts time similar tasks on various devices, iPhone X also took the lead. In the process of converting a two-minute video from 4K resolution to 1080p in Premiere Clip, Apple's device scored 42 seconds, while the S9 + needed 2 minutes 32 seconds for the same task. To open the game Injustice 2, the iPhone took 13 seconds; the youngest south korean needed more than 20.
The Galaxy S9 + outperformed the iPhone X in graphics areaHowever, in the 3DMark Sligh Shot test, Samsung's device scored a 5,793, against 3,998 of Cupertino's son.
It is good to note that even behind the iPhone in most measures, the Galaxy S9 + was the undisputed champion of all tests if we consider only the Android universe; that is, if you are on the side of the little robot in this life, it will surely take a while before a device more capable than the new creations of Sammy.
