Samsung Galaxy Note 4 Review: It's Hot Hardware
Next, we'll take a look at how the Samsung Galaxy Note 4 compares to some other devices by examining a few benchmarks that are currently available in the Android Marketplace.
Balanced - This test is balanced between different areas of the language and different types of code. It's not all math, all string processing, or all timing simple loops. In addition to having tests in many categories, the individual tests were balanced to take similar amounts of time on currently shipping versions of popular browsers.
Statistically Sound - One of the challenges of benchmarking is knowing how much noise you have in your measurements. This benchmark runs each test multiple times and determines an error range (technically, a 95% confidence interval). In addition, in comparison mode it tells you if you have enough data to determine if the difference is statistically significant.
We're still building up reference data for the newest version of SunSpider, so we ran both v0.9.1 and v1.0.2 here. As you can see, the Note 4 was among the fastest devices available, trading victories with the iPhone 6 Plus.
The Galaxy Note 4 also rocked the Rightware Browsermark test. The Note 4 was the fastest device we've tested with Browsermark to date.
