The very first of its kind, Ice Cream Sandwich handset, the Galaxy Nexus, was unleashed this week in UK and AnandTech has benchmarked Galaxy Nexus vs. the iPhone 4S. The Galaxy Nexus processor/GPU isn’t what was expected of it but, the new package inside packs a punch beating iOS marginally in browser spped test as shown below. However, Apple’s iPhone 4S and iPad 2 breeze pass the Galaxy Nexus in GPU loading — which is limited by its slower SGX 540, which is very crucial for gaming purposes.The iPhone 4S makes use of the A5 processor, which makes use of the dual-core SGX 543MP2 GPU from Imagination Technologies.
As it can be seen from above charts that, apart from browsing speed, the iPhone 4S outpaces galaxy nexus in the rest of the departments clean and fair.
Fresh reports are doing the rounds, of users of Galaxy Nexus having trouble with a volume bug with the device. Users have nicknamed it the “Self Aware Volume Ghost,” as the flaw is said to randomly lower volume on the handset and sometimes prevent users from turning it back up.
