Performance: CPU and Device
AnTuTu’s latest benchmark returns a number of scores—too many to graph so we’re including a look at all the numbers in a table. This test measures subsystem performance in various areas like Database IO, Storage IO, CPU (Int. and Float), GPU (3D), and RAM (speed).
The Note Edge slotted just behind the iPhone 6 Plus, Galaxy Note 4, and the 2014 rendition of the Moto X. Admittedly, that's stiff competition. All three of those handsets are powerful in their own right, and to the Note Edge's credit, it hung pretty close. Beyond those three, the Note Edge bested pretty much everything else out there, including prior champions such as the HTC One, Galaxy S5, and LG G3. Of note, the Note Edge did top even the iPhone 6 Plus in a few of the individual scores, such as RAM Operations and CPU Float.
The MobileXPRT benchmark runs through a variety of tests to evaluate the responsiveness of a device along with its ability to handle many everyday workloads. The Note Edge fell just behind the Nexus 6, and ran relatively neck-and-neck with its all-too-similar cousin, the Note 4.
In the GeekBench tests, the Galaxy Note Edge performed very much like a Note 4, which is to say it was very fast. In both the single and multi-threaded test, the Note Edge finished near the top of the charts.
