Samsung Galaxy S5 Sport Review
Next, we'll take a look at how the Samsung Galaxy S5 Sport compares to other tablets 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 tested the Galaxy S5 Sport using both Chrome and the stock browser and obtained the best results using the stock browser. Looking at the chart, the Galaxy S5 Sport reports and excellent score near the top of the chart, just behind the iPhone 5s.
Rightware recently updated the BrowserMark benchmark to a version 2.1. Scores are not compatible with previous versions. For the sake of comparison, we ran the previous version of the BrowserMark benchmark. Using version 2.0, you’ll find the Galaxy S5 Sport at the top of the comparison chart, showing the phone’s power and speed.
