I don't really believe those results, at least for the 3D Mark one. There are several Androids that are faster, including one I'm holding in my hand right now, scoring 16246 vs the 5S's 13757...

iPhone 5S

My device (Snapdragon 800, but that's all I'm telling ya! :p )

So, slaughters the competition? Nope. It's faster than some, slower than others. I see no slaughtering going on here. :p


Blatantly a nexus 5 btw ;)

After clearing the cache and cookies data on both the handsets, we performed a mixture of browser load tests, comparing how fast each phone loaded websites of varying content richness. Also in the video above, you’ll find a collection of browser benchmarks which indicate how well a device’s browser cope with certain important aspects of Internet such as HTML5 and JavaScript. The iPhone 5s absolutely tears through all of the benchmarks, making the Samsung Galaxy S4 look slightly like a phone that exists slightly behind the times.

 

But even though the Galaxy S4 lagged behind in the benchmarks (the HTML5 test was particularly shocking), it does well in real world usage tests. Whilst loading up a collection of websites, the S4 either slightly beat out the iPhone 5s, or was slightly behind in our test, as you can see in the video demonstration above.

We seem to have come to a block in how fast a smartphone can get – at least when you’re purely talking about Web-based performance – and I’m extremely excited to see what the next big thing will be.

Considering they did those tests on the stock browser, I don't trust them at all. That thing is notoriously junk.

 

Also, I don't find web speed tests a particularly good measure of the device's speed, just the browsers.

Finally someone who gets it. Browser tests..what the...

 

Someone should build something close to "Sandra" for mobiles that actually tests the full ability of the cores not some webpage loading times and JS loading times.

Oh yeah I completely agree,  my point was how useless the benchmarks were considering the S4 actually beat the 5s in some scenarios, despite of it "slaughtering" bench marks.

I haven't read through most of the thread, but wasn't the Geekbench numbers a bit fudged because of the dedicated crypto acceleration on the 5S?

I knew what phone you had by the battery icon. I'm a little ashamed  :rofl:
