Samsung Galaxy Note5 And Galaxy S6 Edge+ Review: More Of A Good Thing

Performance: Browsing and JavaScript

Next, we'll take a look at how the new Samsung Galaxy Note5 and S6 Edge+ compare to other smartphones, by examining a few benchmarks that are currently available on-line or in the Android Marketplace. 

First, let’s take a look at the SunSpider JavaScript benchmark. According to the SunSpider website:

This benchmark tests the core JavaScript language only, not the DOM or other browser APIs. It is designed to compare different versions of the same browser, and different browsers to each other. Unlike many widely available JavaScript benchmarks, this test is real world, balanced and statistically sound.

The Galaxy Note5 and S6 Edge+ both performed very will in the SunSpider benchmark. As you can see, Samsung's latest flagships and the iPhone 6s are grouped tightly, right at the top of the chart.


The Galaxy Note5 and S6 Edge+ also rocked the RightWare Browsermark benchmark. The additional memory in the phones and, most likely, additional optimizations made to the built-in Samsung browser propel the Note5 and S6 Edge+ right into the pole position, and by a sizable margin too.
