    Is that 3727? Can it really be? I was going to pass on this because of the processor but this benchmark will make me think about it. I’ll have to go in next week and test it out. I’m not waiting 3 months for the prime.

    I told you guys. . 42 Mbps won’t leave you without benchmark speeds.

    yup! Hercules is top of the S II series, still, like I expected! :D

      GSMArena benchmark of 1.5GHz (OC) Exynos GS2 has it at 4K+. So this Qualcomm is slower.

      • Guest

        Really?  Wow you must be a rocket scientist.  We know it is slower.  The only reason why it benchmarks higher in the Tmobile’s version of the Galaxy S2 is because the resolution is lower than the HTC phones this chip is also in.

        • Anonymous

          That apologist excuse doesn’t work here. The Exynos GS2 and the Qualcomm GS2 are both the same 480×800, and the Exynos benchmarks higher at the same clock-speed.

          chipmunk your exynos benchmark, this is still a good score if your into these sort of things… i could care less about a benchmark as long as the phone runs smooth (which it does)

          Then how do you explain the low MyTouch 4G Slide benchmarks which has a WVGA screen?

      • Best Robertd

        I have got 4585 with Sprint SGS2 variant overclocked at 1.5 Ghz. The Sammy processors are amazing. 125 Mflops on Linpack too.

      • Drew

        Is there a point?? Anyone knowing anything about these devices knows in advance that the Exynos chip is the creme de la creme… It was overclocked 300MHz to get those benchmarks so I’m really having a tough time understanding your point. And what’s a “T-Mobile Qualcomm KIRF”?? What’s so fake about it troll??

        • Anonymous

          Yes, the point is you’re paying for Exynos price but you’re not getting one. Makes you feel all good about that, right? Instead, you’re just paying Qualcomm component markup for 42Mbps+.

  • WOW!!! I certainly wasn’t expecting that either… Danng, I may have to reconsider depending on the Nexus  announcement.

    Quadrant is only designed for testing a single core, is it not?

    • Tarea222

      That’s what I thought

    • And that’s the cool thing. That may not even been it using all of that single core since the dual-core Scorpion CPU is asynchronous and only uses as much of the processor as it needs to do a task.

  • Anonymous

    Not bad at all. Even though it’s pushing less pixels than the Sensation 4G (yes it has a slightly bigger screen, but still the PPI is 206.41 for the SGS2 vs. 256.15 for the Sensation 4G) it’s still a nice score. That said, my Sensation 4G’s Snapdragon still wants some of the meth that the GS2’s is on so it can go faster too.

    Why do people always have to use Quadrant? NenaMark 2 would a much better indicator.

    • with the free version of quadrant, youre right. it doesnt give enough info, just a score. they should be using the paid version of quadrant, it gives a breakdown of the score, the important numbers.

  • thats all? at 1.5ghz it should bench higher on quadrant. whats wrong with it?

    • Gamer4595

      Nothing, and a 1.5 doesn’t necicerraly mean it will benchmark better. The exynos chip has better graphics and by my guess has better cache

      • Magmaspawn

        I wish we did see the fps on that. You are right though bench mark doesn’t have a real reflection of performance. its just fun to use and gets a small idea. 

  • i bet they tested it wrong. the first quadrant always gives the lowest results. bench it four times in a row and keep the 4th result. its always the highest.

    Thats cool and all but I’ve seen Euro GSII’s score over 5000 when clocked at that same 1.5ghz.  Just sayin.  I just hope it’s not laggy like the Sensation.  I don’t believe it will be cause it’ll be using Touchwiz instead of Sense.  I’m waiting till I’ve personally driven this thing before I decide to pull the trigger on the Tmo version or the ATT one.

      Weird, I tested two of ours. Both got around 2500 the first run, after 3 runs they both hit over 3700.

      FWIW, my sensation with cm7 at 1.78ghz hit just over 4000. I’m anxious to see what the sgs2 can do with 1.8ghz. 

      • Anonymous

        SGS2 should hit more score over sensation because it has less pixel count.

    • I can’t explain how people are getting these scores. It’s highly unlikely that someone was able to hack the phone to get these scores in the span of a couple of hours. Other than that, I don’t know what else to tell anyone.

      • David W

        The Quadrant score for the Telus GS2 was in the low-to-mid 2000’s, if I recall correctly. Now, to be fair, it is entirely possible that was done with a non-release version of some software elements. I think, however, someone needs to release some verifiable numbers. I’m just not sure I can take the 3800 score at face value.

      • Robert Turner

        Quadrant can be easily hacked to only run a few tests in order to report a super high score. Quadrant is not reliable.

    And where are the people here who were crying, “CURSE U TMO, WHY DIDN’T U PUT EXYNOS in YOuR SGS2”??? Now eat your words…

    And please don’t forget the G2 who uses SNAPDRAGON, the most overclockable CPU I know. It made 1900Mhz from 800Mhz stock.. I am expecting huge overclock gain for this new Snapdragon..

    I also make 3000+ Quadrant at 1.5Ghz in my G2 just like the guy below. Needless to say, the only thing that has more in Exynos over Snapdragon is PUBLICITY and HYPE..

    • Michael Pitts

      the snapdragon is overclocked at 1.5 the Exynos is clocked at 1.2 and I get higher scores then this. with a overclocked kernel at 1504ghz I scored a quadrant score of 4500+ the Snapdragon is only scoring as much as the stock exynos processor when equally clocked there is no competition.

    Still wish someone could come up with the off-contract price for this beast. I went to a local TMO store yesterday and asked if they knew, and one of the reps told me they got their retail shipment, took one, and tried to scan it through their point-of-sale system to get the off-contract price and nothing came up.

    I suspect someone knows, but for whatever reason, they’re keeping it close to the vest.

As far as the invoice price, it’s $549 if I heard correctly. Employees pay tax on the full invoice price even though we get it at a discounted rate and that was the price that was given to me by the Samsung Rep.

    Not to burst anyones bubble about the SGII……but everyone is so geeked up about these benchmark scores and for me……it doesn’t factor in too much on a day-to-day use.

    I work for TMO and in between customers and down time (at the store) I spent my time comparing the Amaze and the SGII .  We don’t have a demo unit so we took a new out of the box, put a sim card in it and got it going.  I did speed test, camera, browsing comparisons and unless you consider fractions of a second/seconds to be a determining factor, these two phones are so close in performance, that either one is a WIN.

    Personally, I like the look of Sense over TouchWiz and I own a Samsung Galaxy S4. I prefer the app drawer of Sense and some of the things they do differently. The hardware buttons on the Amaze for camera a video and great…especially if you love to take pics and videos.

    I will admit that the screen on the SGII is just amazing.  If I was to get the SGII, I would definitely have to download a different launcher….like I did with my SG4.

    As for the form factor (in the hands), the Amaze feels much better than the SGII but heavier.

    I’m going to spend the next 3-4 days running more browser test and other things and then make up my mind. Lucky for me, I can get some real hands on time with both before deciding.

      It’s not so much everyone’s geek up over the benchmark scores as much as they are wanting to shut up the nay sayer’s as it relates to the Qualcomm vs. Exynos chip. I personally could care less as long as the phone is fast. 

      Posting a good score will silence the critics and allow the rest of us to go on and enjoy the phone without having to hear what (they think) is good about it and what’s not. We know the Exynos chip is the better one but the Qualcomm chip is more than holding it’s own…

      What about typing comfort/speed?  I’m a longtime blackberry user and switched to android briefly when they only had 3.7 inch screens.  Made too many mistakes when typing so I switched back to blackberry.  But I miss many Android features.  Is the extra width of the 4.5 inch SGII more accurate to type on?  I’ve seen photos of the 4.3 inch Amaze and it is not as wide — I assume the keyboard keys would appear narrower than the SGII’s keys.  Can you let us know which device you would prefer to type long emails?

T-Mobile USA should lower the price on the SGS2 to match the core difference. But, seems like nobody cares if they got ripped off as long as it’s pretty smooth.

    Not to burst anyones bubble about the SGII……but everyone is so geeked up about these benchmark scores and for me……it doesn’t factor in too much on a day-to-day use.

    I work for TMO and in between customers and down time (at the store) I spent my time comparing the Amaze and the SGII .  We don’t have a demo unit so we took a new out of the box, put a sim card in it and got it going.  I did speed test, camera, browsing comparisons and unless you consider fractions of a second/seconds to be a determining factor, these two phones are so close in performance, that either one is a WIN.

    Personally, I like the look of Sense over TouchWiz and I own a Samsung Galaxy S4. I prefer the app drawer of Sense and some of the things they do differently. The hardware buttons on the Amaze for camera a video and great…especially if you love to take pics and videos.

    I will admit that the screen on the SGII is just amazing.  If I was to get the SGII, I would definitely have to download a different launcher….like I did with my SG4.

    As for the form factor (in the hands), the Amaze feels much better than the SGII but heavier.

    I’m going to spend the next 3-4 days running more browser test and other things and then make up my mind. Lucky for me, I can get some real hands on time with both before deciding.

    I know the HTC Amaze has WiFi Calling, but does anyone know if the Samsung Galaxy S II has WiFi Calling Feature?  If not, that is a deal breaker for me. Thanks.

    Lol. I have read ur comments and u seem like a pretty reasonable and savvy guy. U have helped me make my decision…I’m going to pick this up when it drops.

    but u also have to take into consideration the first line of galaxy s devices still dont have a stable rom yet because device drivers are different so the amaze will probably have cyanogenmod support because it is an htc phone.

    So I have a question. I really don’t want to do an ETF just to get the s2 on another carrier. Is the new chip really that bad that the phone geeks are bad mouthing it? Will it be to the point that I buy it and think it’s a slow phone that plays videos and such horribly? Or would I be happy with it? I don’t think I’d root it because I can’t afford to mess up expensive phones. Is the different in chips like a 100% drawback as everyone makes it out to be? If the SG2 with exynos is at 100% awesomeness where does that put T-mobiles? This is in the case of someone who wants a phone that will be fast and stay fast with good performance when watching netflix videos and what not. I feel like when people talk about gpu they are saying the S2 with exynos is like a $1000 graphics card and the S2 with qualcomm on T-mobile

      I think you’ll be happy with it. It is the fastest phone T-Mobile will have. The processor is just not as good as the Exynos in graphics performance. But if you don’t expect to play 3D games the clock speed of 1.5 GHz should help you perform similarly to the Exynos at 1.2 GHz. Plus you get the ability to get 42 Mbps (lol). http://www.phonebuff.com/2011/09/t-mobiles-samsung-galaxy-s2-vs-sprints-vs-atts/

    • The phone never lags on me and is extremely smooth at playing full HD videos and movies!

    • Realcool2000

      The chip is great. You would never know the difference between the Qual and the Ethn

  • JeffK

    This phone is fast, but it is way too large physically to be useful.  I mean, it will break in pieces and will never fit in a pocket.

    • very true,they shoulda kept the screen at 4.3

      • ecd

        Couldn’t disagree more, not simply from me picking it up in the store BUT from the reps AND several people near me who have bought it or tried it also and said, the size is definitely an issue, due to the rounded corners, its thickness, and it is much more durable than the Vibrant.  Besides, we all agreed, who’s gonna carry that without a case

        • I’ve dropped mine so many times and keep it in the same pocket as my keys…No scratches on the screen and have never had an issue with dropping it either. This thing is to nice to “cover.” 

    • I love the screen size. After using it for a few weeks I love the screen so much that I love how big it is! It is very useful and I have never had any issues with fitting it in any pocket. The thing is virtually indestructible as well. Gorilla glass is solid!!!!!!!!!!!

    • Big_9_er

      Dude, take oof those skinny jeans and wear some man’s pants. Then the phone will fit in your pocket with ease.
      Sheesh.

  • Hugh Anderson

    Would it be possible for somebody to please benchmark the battery life of the Tmobile GS2?  Thanks

  • ThatGuy,UwishUknew

    My G2X did 3800 right out of the box. So this is not much of an improvement for being a 1.5ghz dual core. I dont dare over clock my phone’s processor. But if I did, I bet it would be very impressive.

    • souggie

      Your g2x? Out the box? *lies*

    • Lazera Thompson

      Ha Ha, G2x pulling over 3k out of the box or even OC’d.  Dream on.

    • Eaglesfan7188

      i got a 4100 oc to 1.6 and running custom everything… you did not get 3800 out of the box

      LG sucks, that would be impressive if it even hit 3,000. They locked the bootloader on my G-Slate via update…I’ll forever hate the company.

    • TIM FRESH

      yeah right!!! i got a g2x and cant get 2500. you must have a g2xs.

    That chart is wrong my friend. My G2X did 3800 not 3000 like that chart says. Even right now with a bunch of crap installed and half of my memory being used it does 3600. That chart doesnt mean S###

  • klopp

    doesn’t that live wallpaper running in the background affect the score?

    nexus ONE is in there but not nexus S ?

    1.) It takes 3-4 months for the cyanogen mod team to reverse engineer the new OS coding to be made suitable for the majority of devices.
    2.) The Nexus Prime is coming out no later than the end of November according to Schmidt.
    3.)  Samsung knows that Steve Kondik works on Cyanogen.  They would not have given him the job if they even thought that he would take their proprietary coding and both took advantage of it for free as well as made it open source in doing so.

      What do you suppose is their intent with Cyanogen?

  • jtecj

    Just the general structure of your’ rant makes me not like this phone.

    everything I have seen is that the GS II often needs updates for games to run right, don’t know how this hybrid will deal with games.

    Otherwise everyhgig I have seen shows the G2x running faster on graphics…..which is much more meaningful that scrolling of the OS….which both phones do very well
