As noted by the publication, SunSpider is slowly becoming outdated as a smartphone benchmark; however it highlights issues pertaining to ARMís Cortex A9 memory interface. According to Anand Shimpi ďIntel originally hinted issues in the A9ís memory interface as being why Atom was able to so easily outperform other ARM based SoCs in SunSpider.Ē
It was previously thought that Apple made dramatic improvements to the standard ARM coreís memory interface as previous Geekbench data suggested a drastic improvement from previous Cortex A9 chips. Although it hasnít yet been confirmed, the A6 chip is reportedly Appleís first attempt at designing an ARM core in-house. Based on the results, it seems like they have done a pretty good job but weíll see more results when more test results are released.

Remember the last time one of these was posted. We all proved it wrong.
I dont believe them anymore. All it is, is a fanboy trying to hype up the device.

Wow, I didn't think the 4S was so far behind so many other phones.

The new processor seems impressive given it's low clock speed. I would argue that because iOS has a lot less going on than Android (That is neither bad nor good), it should perform better with lesser hardware. Regardless, seems to be a killer processor and GPU. I love the Dev scene on Android and with Jelly Bean it really is an actual alternative to iOS. However, if iOS had widgets and a 4.3" screen I would definitely consider it. I will admit, I do find Apple to be a bit of a bully these days but they do make a quality product. Samsung needs to get off the plastic if it wants to be a real alternative. The SIII (I have one) is an amazing phone, especially when you have Cyanogenmod 10 on it, but it'll always be made of plastic.

techno is right. Its the os and ram that amounts to how well it processes code.
