It wasn’t too long ago we found out that the T-Mobile version of the Samsung Galaxy S II would not feature the coveted dual-core Exynos processor like its Galaxy S II cousins on Sprint and AT&T. Instead we learned this variant would feature a dual-core Snapdragon processor (APQ8060) clocked at 1.5GHz. Many of our readers were up in arms over this news doubting the power of the Qualcomm’s Snapdragon over Samsung’s Exynos.
Well, seeing how a lot of our readers live and die by benchmarks scores, we came across this Quadrant result of the upcoming T-Mobile Galaxy S II and let me tell you — it’s well deserving of its Hercules title.
Generally speaking, the Exynos Samsung Galaxy S II hits an average Quadrant benchmark of about 3500. Not too shabby for T-Mobile customers who felt like they were getting the short end of the stick from Samsung/Qualcomm/T-Mobile. Keep in mind, benchmarks should never be taken as gospel truth and in now way represent “real world” speeds as translated to the end user or even that any one phone is “better” than another based off such — but I digress. For those Phandroid skeptics who are still doubting the validity of the Hercules’s benchmark, I’ve even included a video of the entire Quadrant process down below.
