iPhone 4S Benchmarked – 2x faster than iPhone 4






Recent post on MacRumors shows that a video had surfaced yesterday about the iPhone 4S tested for its capability with a couple of benchmarks. This test includes the new feature “Siri” which was revealed at the launch of “Lets talk iPhone” event at Apple Town Hall in the company’s own campus in Cupertino, California.

It seems that, the people at AppVV got hold of the yet to be released iPhone 4S before its official launch (which is still three days away) and they benchmarked it to compare its performance with other phones. The video they uploaded also shows a setting in Siri – iPhone 4S’ voice recognition feature – called Raise to Speak .

For people who are not familiar with the term ‘Siri’ for them, Siri is a new feature of the iPhone 4S which is a software personal assistant.Which means, Simply by speaking a request in natural language, Siri will perform a task to the best of its ability.

The iPhone 4S is shown to be scored 2222.1ms score on SunSpider – a JavaScript benchmark which tests the JavaScript execution performance of a browser – and 89567 on Browsermark which is also a benchmark for testing browser performance. Comparing Browsermark score of the iPhone 4S with that of the iPhone4(44856) reveals that the iPhone 4S is twice as fast, at least in browser performance. This falls in line with Apple’s claim that the dual-core Apple A5 chip in the iPhone 4S delivers twice the general performance over the single-core A4 chip in iPhone 4.

About 57 seconds into this video, you can see a toggle called Raise to Speak under Settings > General > Siri. The Raise to Speak feature will allow you to talk to Siri by simply raising your iPhone 4S to your ear. It also features a powerful 8 megapixel camera that can record video at Full HD 1080p.
