The Samsung Galaxy S10 is one of the most anticipated smartphones for 2019. It is also expected to pack the latest and most powerful hardware, where some variants will be powered by the latest Exynos chipset, while others will be using the Qualcomm Snapdragon 855. Unfortunately it seems that despite using the latest hardware, recent benchmarks have found the phone to be a bit disappointing.
These benchmarks were shared on Slashleaks (via Cult of Mac) where based on their scores, the phone scored 3,413 on the single-core test, and 10,256 on the multi-core test. This is versus Apple whose iPhone XS Max score a single-core score of 4,816, and a multi-core score of 11,584. Even the 2017 iPhone X scored higher with scores of 4,243 and 10,433 respectively.
Now before you get too bummed out, note that these scores aren’t official. The phone has yet to be officially announced (20th February) which means that either these scores are based on an early production version of the phone, or they could be faked. After all Qualcomm’s recent Snapdragon 855 benchmarks have shown it to be incredibly powerful compared to its predecessor, so we should be seeing much better scores than these.
Take it with a grain of salt for now, but we should have all the official details in the next month or so.
