Galaxy Nexus Beats iPhone 4S in Browsing; Loses Out on Graphics Front

November 21, 2011, By Sanjeev Ramachandran

When the titans, Samsung Galaxy Nexus and iPhone 4S, clash, the world looks forward, eagerly, to see who would finally rule the planet.

Both are unique in exceptional ways and that, in turn, turns the heat on.  The debate still continues and the war rants and raves violent than ever before.

The recent turbulence surfaced when AnandTech published the results of a pair of browsing benchmarks performed, Sunspider Javascript Benchmark 0.9.1 and Rightware Browsermark.

The results put Galaxy Nexus at a top notch, while iPhone 4s and Motorola Droid RAZR were shoved to the 2nd and 3rd spot.

The Galaxy Nexus scored a speedy 1879 versus the iPhone 4S’s 2250, lower being the best here, in SunSpider Javascript Benchmark (version 0.9.1). In the Rightware BrowserMark test, again, Nexus outclassed the iPhone 4S by scoring 98,272 versus the 4S’s 87,841, higher being the best here.

This throws light on the fact that Nexus is capable of rendering web pages faster than any other browser available in the market today.

Nexus brings with it all of the goodness of Honeycomb along with new optimization features from Google. Besides, the search giant has done a lot of browser optimization in ICS to increase the performance of Nexus.

However, if all the scales are up, then the titans shouldn’t clash; one would be deemed as the king. But Apple wouldn’t give up just like that.

They have scored high in the graphics processing benchmarks, for both iPhone 4S and the iPad 2, and beat Nexus out there.

But this is not the end of the epic. It will continue. Stay tuned. More will come soon.
