iPhone 5 benchmark score outperforms every iOS and Android device to date

“A benchmark score logged on Sunday with Primate Labs’ online Geekbench reportedly details the specifics of Apple’s iPhone 5, with the new smartphone outperforming the average scores of every iOS and Android device on the website,” AppleInsider reports.

“The online benchmarking site reportedly logged a score of 1601 from an ‘iPhone5,2’ that was running iOS 6 on a dual-core ARMv7 processor clocked at 1.02GHz with 1GB of RAM,” AppleInsider reports. “While it is not impossible to spoof device identifiers, the specifications line up with previous speculation that Apple’s A6 SoC boasts a full gigabyte of DRAM and leverages a an ARMv7 CPU with custom-designed cores.”

AppleInsider reports, “If legitimate, the iPhone5,2’s score eked out the highest-performing Android devices, including the Asus-built Nexus 7 tablet and Samsung Galaxy S III.”
