Scoring an impressive 1601, the iPhone 5 sets a new record for iOS devices (iPad 3 scored just 766, iPhone 4S 629), and manages to trump even quad-core tablets and smartphones over on the Android side of the fence, including the Asus Nexus 7 (1591) and the Galaxy S III sans Jelly Bean (1560).
Aside from the leveled-up performance, this also reveals some of the technical tidbits Apple left out of the Tech Specs page of their newest iPhone – it rocks an ARMv7 1.02GHz dual-core processor with 1GB of RAM under the hood.
But as I’ve said before, it’s real-world performance that really counts, NOT the tech specs or the Geekbench scores. That said, if it looks good on paper and looks as impressive in benchmark scores, chances are, it’ll most likely perform just as good in real-world tests too, which sets up the table quite nicely for an impending Galaxy S III-iPhone 5 showdown.
