These new smartphones are fast
Mashable has a piece on the speed of the newest smartphones, comparing the iPhone 5 vs. the Samsung S Galaxy III… the headline is on how the iPhone is faster, but man, the real point is all these phones are FAST! (I’m having problems understanding from Mashable piece where the original source of this image is, but I think it’s here.)
Assuming I’m understanding this geekbench point system correctly, the current smartphone batch is about 1/2 as fast as actual laptops were from 2008/2009! This is an amazing amount of processing power in your pocket.
