Like we weren’t excited about the Galaxy Nexus enough already. The crew at AnandTech has been busily benchmarking Android’s new flagship against Apple’s top performer. The results? The Galaxy Nexus is the new king of the hill in some key areas.
Benchmarking is a handy tool to give you relative, objective numbers about how a device performs. That said, these numbers don’t always translate to user experience. I’ve tested phones that benchmarked well, but then were slow and terrible to use in practice. However, in this case preliminary testing of the Galaxy Nexus has been extremely favourable (as it has been with the iPhone 4S, obviously), so it’s nice to hear that there are some raw numbers to back up these first impressions.
